Argentina

Two goals for today – get to Gobernador Gregores, located more than 400 km from Los Antiguos and on our way, see Cueva de los Manos – a great example of wall art that survived a dozen thousand years. An ambitious plan and we still cannot get ready fast enough….

In this gallery you will see an incredible amount of hands straight from the heart of Argentinian Cave of the Hands – Cueva de los Manos. But not only. You will find here scenes of hunting, people and drawings of animals. The most amazing if is that those cave paintings…

We woke up at 7 am today. Feeling rested, we had our breakfast and packed up quickly. Like never. What’s more, before us, we didn’t have a long journey – just 60 km. It will take us an hour to get to Chile. Well, that was the plan…

There are moments when you’re on Ruta 40 that last for kilometres with nothing around you. Literally, nothing. You just drive and drive. One car passes you in an hour. You have time for reflection, time for conversation. Since we left Patagonia, it is the road that has been the…

Loud birds’ squeaks wake us up. They were circling over our heads already when we went to sleep, but it seemed quieter then. They’re going absolutely bonkers from the early morning. At night the power went down as well and now it’s quite cold since the heater is dead. We’re…

Argentina

We’re leaving Bariloche without regret – we just resupply in a nearby supermarket as we consider this town the worst place to explore Nahuel Huapi National Park. We’re heading further South driving through the old part of Ruta 40 (until now, the road bypassed all cities in the land of…
