Last Days of Summer: Diary of Last Year #16 – End of series.

7th of February 2017

We’re back in Puerto Montt. During the last week we crossed the island of Chiloé, cycled on a motorway for the first time, and met a guy walking from Ushuaia to Alaska (as I’m writing this, he’s still walking).

Arriving in Puerto Montt in the early evening traffic, we looked first thing for a place to stay. Didn’t feel like leaving our bikes out unattended here… We asked for a room in a guesthouse that was fully booked, but whose owner directed us to her friend across the street. A very friendly couple renting out a few rooms including breakfast and some nice conversation. Warm water was only in the morning, because it was heated with a wood stove which was only lit during the night.

They also had a courtyard for our bikes, which we occupied for about half a day to pack our bikes in bubble wrap.

Yes, ready to fly again. We’re flying to Spain to see how Winter’s doing in Europe.

Winter cycling here we come!
