The beauty of Chile being such a long country is that is crosses so many geographic belts so you really get all worlds in one place. After leaving Pucon, I began journeying deeper into the Lakes District. You have to see this place!
Chile has it all. I started my trip in this country in the Atacama Desert – the driest place on earth, and now I’m in the Chilean Lake District – it’s difficult to believe these 2 places are in the same country – massive lakes, forests and snow-capped volcanoes all around – incredible!
I have never felt as isolated from the rest of the world as I have on Easter Island. This adds to the mystery of the Rapa Nui people and how the hell they got here in the first place. It’s a beautiful sort of isolation – a small town feel and an overarching sense of mystery – I love it!
The Quilotoa Loop is a 3 day trek in Ecuador that will take you through some beautiful countryside, eventually depositing you at the crater lake of the Quilotoa Volcano. Here’s a photo blog of my recent trek.
Colombia is one of the first countries I’ve come across where everyone has very unique itineraries. I was expecting many people to be following the well trodden Gringo trail north or south around South America, but it turns out this doesn’t really apply to Colombia.
