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.
In month 7 I slowed down. That month was about spending time with my friends and get back some small pleasures of normal life. These are the reflections of my seventh month of solo travel, with a summary of the places I visited, the best moments I had and what’s next.
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.
