What can I say? We’ve got fond of road trips. We drove for 12 hours south of Santiago to the middle of the Patagonian Rainforest! We rented a quaint little forest cabin in Huilohuilo Biological Reserve (They have fabulous super expensive hotel rooms too, if you fancy sending some dough!), with a fireplace, cozy bed and a little kitchenette to cook up some ready to eat risotto and be blissfully content with cups of tea every now and then.
Not that we stayed in the cabin for too long (but I must admit, a nice house to relax in is a top priority for our holidays these days). We took long walks to the waterfall, checked out their deer circuit, kayaked on the beautiful Lake Pirihueico and had cold beers in their brewery, admidst the tall, tall trees.
And it rained! on day we were heading back. A serious downpour that reminded us of Bombay. I guess people from Bombay are the only crazy people on the planet that get overjoyed by how nature around us changed every time it rains!
Our next stop was further south, in the lake towns of Puerto Varas & Frutillar, but more about that later.
