It takes a long time to get to the Ends of the Earth!
Punta Arenas - touch the foot, if you want to return someday
Margy and I were off on another adventure and boy, it takes long to get to the ends of the earth! We had a great time on mainland Chile and Easter Island!
We arrive in Santiago
After a long night of travel, we arrive in Santiago around 10am. It is pretty hot. We walk around Bella Vista after checking in to the hotel. We have to go to bed early, as our flight is at 5:30am tomorrow morning.
After an early flight (which is longer than we thought and there was no food), we are hungry and ready to officially start the trip. After a little confusion with transportation, we take a taxi to the hotel in downtown Punta Arenas. We walk around town and through a market while waiting for our room. Went to a hamburger place for lunch and it …
Off to see the Penguins
We are up early and again a little confusion, as we never rec'd our welcome packet upon arrival in Santiago. We wait outside the hotel early, as we know we are supposed to get picked up for the penguin trip. A van pulls up and takes us to the office and then of to the pier for our trip in the Magellan Strait. Stopped to see some sea lions first …
1st day in Torres del Paine
After a great breakfast and pack up of lunch, we are off to see the park. We are in and out of the van all day with our little group and really get to see a lot. Salto Grande Waterfall, Grey Glacier and Lake, lots of different lakes and tons of animals. It was baby time in the park so, we saw lots of babies which was cool. The best was on our …
Day of Hiking
Today we got to sleep in a little bit and then we were off for a day of hiking. Was really a great hike and not too challenging. Again saw lots of animals and our joke was to take pictures of them mating...we saw that everywhere...was pretty funny. Tonight was our last dinner with the group, as we were all departing the next day.
The long trip back to Punta Arenas
Left mid-morning for the long trip back to Punta Arenas. Stopped for lunch at the same place and then got to the airport to find that our flight was delayed. No food at the airport and we only got cookies on the flight so, we were starving when we got back to Santiago. Checked into the same hotel we stayed at upon arrival into Chile but, got a …
Tour in Santiago
Got picked up around 9am for tour of the city. It is a much larger city than I thought. Saw lots of buildings and monuments all morning. Walked around on our own that afternoon and again had dinner near the hotel at an Italian restaurant. Was really hot and humid and then the power went out sometime during the night. Our room was miserably …
Here we come Easter Island
Flight to Easter Island was good and wow, you are really out there in the middle of the ocean. Again a little confusion upon arrival but, got to the hotel ok. It was a little rainy so, we just tried to relax a little. That afternoon was had a tour for a few hours and met the group we would be with for the rest of the time here. Our guide …
Moai all day
Went to several sites today and learned more about the moai. They really are interesting and there are so many polynesian traits but, then again some Incan as well.
