Recommendation: guesthouse Vista Al Mar in Puerto Montt, Chile

Okay, here is where I am going to rave. This place has been one of our favorite of all the ones we stayed in over the course of a years travel in South America. It's not fancy nor is it an amazing value. So how can it be our favorite? The answer is simple. It's home. If you are feeling slightly homesick or craving the feeling of returning to a home (instead of just a bed), this place is the place to go!

Discovering crudo in Valdivia & realizing the f-ing Germans are everywhere!

After Cochamo, we ventured out to Valdivia. I was told that I shouldn't miss the market there because it's full of fresh seafood and it's true. Although small in size, it's a market lovers paradise. You can purchase different types of fresh fish & get it cut up right on the spot to take home & cook up a feast

Aruba, Jamaica, ooo I wanna take ya down to Cochamo!

Oh my god, I hate it when a stupid song gets stuck in your head. Especially when you know ALL the lyrics by some senseless osmosis force to the inane song. How does that happen? It's not like I ever purchased the Beach Boys single 'Kokomo' and listened to it over and over thus memorizing the lyrics. But somehow it happened.

A visit to the island of Chiloe & discovering some of Chile’s best fish

We finally made it to Puerto Montt, beyond exhausted. We were pretty disheveled at this point. The ferry arrived at 6 am and we made our way through a real city! Puerto Montt has just about 200,000 people, so not such a big city by real world standards but for us, it was the largest city we had seen in a very long time. Huge, real double-decker (!) buses rushed passed us. After seeing just minibuses for the past month, these buses looked heavenly.

So where the hell are we now?

We left the Bark Europa and our Antarctic memories on January 19, 2013 when the boat harbored back into Ushuaia (check out the map if you don't know where that is). So where the hell are we now and why has it taken me this long to write about things that happened months ago??
