After witnessing the glory of Mt Fitz Roy, the next stop was to be El Calafate to see the awe inspiring Perito Moreno glacier that I have not stopped hearing about.. Was it as everyone had said?.. YES!
The day had finally come.. after much demanding and even doing 50% of the repairs myself, my motorbike was ready.. I was ready to hit the road/gravel as fast as I could and leave Coihaique in my rear view mirror at tremendous speeds..
After fighting a cold in Bariloche I fled south hoping to put some serious miles on my motorbike and really get stuck into Patagonia. I re-entered Chile at Futalefew and started my journey on the Carretera Austral, a very well known road for cyclist and motorcyclist.
So taking off where I left off. I left Temuco for the lakeside town of Pucon. The town itself is quiet small and touristy. I had only planned to stay 2 nights but ended up staying a week. There was so many activities to do and the hostel I stayed in (chilikiwi lakefront) was outstanding, the hostel made me want to stay forever, it was so relaxed and the people were just amazing.
