Yesterday we left Patagonia to fly north for a couple of hours to the Chilean lake district for a few days of rest and relaxation after our icy adventure. Well, that was the plan.
The flight was fine and as we emerged from the domestic terminal a smiling driver was waiting for us. He turned out to be the manager of the hotel were we were staying - a beautiful place on the banks of Lake Llanquihue - a 45 drive away.
The place was enchanting. So was the scenery. So intoxicated were we that all thought of taking it easy went out the window.
By the afternoon we were hiking up a volcano! And now have kayaking, mountain biking, and hiking organised too!
So much for taking a rest!
