I really wanted to see San Pedro de Atacama after the salar de uyuni. But even though it's the driest place on earth, I managed to be in that area when it rained so badly that the streets were flooded and there was no way to get there... so I had to skip it and flew straight to Santiago de Chile for a few days instead. From there I took another plane to go as far south as I've never been before - beautiful Patagonia! The first stop was in Punta Arenas... not really a lot to do there but I had to stop in order to meet my friend Désirée from back home! How great it was to see somebody from back home after almost half a year!! And the best thing?? She smuggled raclette cheese (as well as a little raclette oven) from switzerland all the way to patagonia just so that I could have a real raclette - and it was DELICIOUS!! 😄🧀
On our priority list of things to do Torres del Paine was obviously pretty much at the very top! So we headed to Puerto Natales to figure out how we can geh there and hopefully do the W-Track. People kept telling me that it will be impossible as we would need reservations up to 5 months in advance due to lack of availability but I was sure there has to be a way to still do it - and so there was. You just need to be a bit flexible and everything will work out. Just as always 😎😉 Our flexibility, which brought us the nights in the park, also led us to have 4 open days in between. And as we didn't want to wait in Puerto Natales for 4 days, we decided to head into Argentina for some adventures. You'll see what I mean by that in the next post 😉
Did someone say beach day? Well, you're in luck - Durban's got beaches for days 🌊 The Golden Mile, an endless stretch of sand + sea just a 10 minute walk away from Curiocity, is a hub of activity all year round thanks to the city’s great weather and laid back vibes ✌🏿
A riot of colours took over the 400-year-old Gopinath temple at Mathura as hundreds of widows, clad in white sarees, smeared hues of red, yellow, and green on each other.Braving the morning chill, elderly women from Vrindavan and Varanasi gathered at one of the oldest Krishna temples in the crowded Gopinath Bazaar earlier this week, to shun taboos and celebrate Holi.
"Carrum Beach is the latest Melbourne beach to roll out the beach wheelchair matting during patrolled weekend hours. They also have two chairs to borrow to get onto the waves!" Thanks for the info, @smithsholidayroad! I'm sure all of us here want to know where we can go and have fun. Hope you had a great time while you were there! 👍🏻
