Chosing the best experiences of the trip has been a difficult task, I had so many intense moments! But here they are. As you’ll see, most of them are related to people. Even more: I believe that some of these experiences wouldn’t have happened if I had not been traveling alone.
It is strange thinking about going back to my hometown Barcelona, because I am not only going back after 11 months of long term travel, I am going back after 11 years living abroad.
Cultural heritage in Patagonia is very rich, however, my trip over there had a different perspective: geological heritage. Geological heritage helped me to explore not only beautiful landscapes but also the fascinating history of the region… including the discovery of a new dinosaur!
How is it to live in an off the beaten path small town in northern Patagonia? Dealing with the weather and using a wood burning stove to heat a house, these is how I spent two weeks in Coyhaique, in the Chilean Patagonia.
Earthquakes and volcanoes were a common conversation topic with locals when I was in Chile, and it was interesting to hear their personal experiences. Natural disasters are terrible events. Some people, however, were able to tell me their experience with a calm matter-of-fact tone, others even with humor. I truly admire them.
