Santiago (Chile) – Miami (USA) – Essen (Germany) – Annecy (France) from 1/02 to 12/02/13

So we took off Friday night, to land with 2 hours more in Miami. Still a little bit sleepy and annoyed after 1 hour and a half waiting for the control of the passports… The guy asked me any kind of weird questions: “Where are you going today?”; “ah you have been to South America”; […]

January in Santiago – from 06/01 to 01/02/13

After Patagonia, we counted the money we spent and the money we have left, and that basically decided for the plans…

Alex had to work anyway, only the week ends were free.

I wanted to go to Pucon for 5 days, but unfortunately, the prices of the buses increased a lot because it is summer, […]

Puerto Natales

In El Calafate, we decided that we could go out to celebrate New Year and have a proper dinner. We even thought about trying […]

Back to Punta Arenas, we took a bus to Puerto Natales, 3 hours north. We bought food for trekking (pasta, rice, dry soups…), and left on Thursday 27th to the national park Torres Del Paine (another 2hours in a bus).

In the bus from Punta Arenas, we met Cindy and Jay, Canadians, who planned as […]

Santiago, week 5 – from 10/12 to 17/12/12

For a start, welcome back to Santiago, the noises, the people, the cars… and I finally got a chance to record for you the alarms of the cars that are part of our life all the time (every hour or so), that I told you about in my first article. Yea, people told me you […]

Atacama desert – from 2/12 to 10/12/12

The trip from Iquique to San Pedro de Atacama was pretty long, 10 hours sitting in a bus… Oh, yea, there is the landscape…nice the first 2 hours, all along the coast, with seldom villages, but after that, the landscape was pretty boring : it is the desert ! so nothing really to look at […]

Trip to Peru – from 20/11 to 29/11/12

Vamos a Perú !!!

With Camille, a french girl that I met in the Spanish classes, we decided to go to Peru, and visit the famous Machu Picchu.

We planed to have 10 days in Peru, but actually we realized it was a bit short to do a lot of things, so we mostly travelled […]

We had a few parties at home, and one was the ”rally de la habitación” which consisted in preparing […]
