Hey people, I’m back from my trip and not ready at all to continue with my life.I’m going to make an attempt though. So far I failed because today I should have gone to classes and didn’t.
Anyway, last post I mentioned I was going to show you where I went cause I got so many pretty pictures and I don’t have Facebook (anymore) so I can’t upload them there and I can’t just put them all in instagram so why not share them with you? The place of destination was Bariloche. Might not have heard of it and if you did you’re so, so cool. Bariloche is in Rio Negro, Argentina and it’s usually a cold place with mountains where it snows. It didn’t snow though because it’s a little bit early for that we just entered autumn here. However it was cold… really cold!
For being someone who wants to get the hell out of this country you’ll understand I’m not so much interested in places here. It makes me feel bad but I’m just not into “la Patagonia” It doesn’t mean it’s not beautiful but it’s not my kind of place. I do have friends who would love to travel through Argentina and see everything but that’s just not me. So said that I was not that excited to got to Bariloche. I heard amazing things about the place even from my grandparents who usually don’t travel inside the country (unless it’s to Mar del Plata, a city 5 hours of distance from where we live. There are beaches there so…)
I was SO wrong, AGAIN. Bariloche is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. Seriously if I had to choose one view to see for the rest of my life it would be Bariloche’s landscapes. I’ll show you but sadly photographs will make no justice.
I got out of the airport and I already saw this…
And the next day we went touring. In Puerto Pañuelo they would take us to two islands, one named Victoria and the other I don’t remember but it was so beautiful.
Yeah by then I was in love with this place, it was so beautiful. So movie like somehow
First one is Puerto Pañuelo. Second one is the view from the first island. In Victoria island we did a little more because on the first one it was lunch time and my grandparents were really tired so we decided not to push it and just go to the cafeteria to eat something and enjoy the view.
The second one was more fun. We did a little circuit through the Arayán forest. Arayán is this beautiful tree with a really cold temperature apparently. The tour guy from the ship told us we should hug the trees because they would give us good vibes and to see how cold the tree was. So through the track you would see a bunch of people hugging trees, go green or go home right?
I think Victoria Island is so famous here because there was a sort of myth going around that said that Walt Disney got his inspiration there to make Bambi… which is not true… at all. In fact the tour man from the ship talked about this and how though it was not true the place didn’t need a celebrity name to be considered famous or beautiful
And he was kind of right.
But the trees kind of look like a white-tailed deer fur, maybe?
That in the middle is me by the way, hi!
So yes, this place was amazing.
I also spent my days drinking hot chocolate. As I told you at the beginning, Bariloche is usually a cold place with snow because it’s close to the famous Cordillera de Los Andes and well Chile. So the place kind of gained popularity for hot chocolate and chocolate to eat. It didn’t disappoint, the chocolate there is so good.
And these are only two of the hot chocolates I drank. I think I drank one each day lol.
okay so the first pic is from Victoria island. It’s the roof of this small cabin aside from the circuit we did. I think it was call fantasy Cottage. The second one is the back of an amazing small church up in a hill were you had the most spectacular view.
I then went to this beautiful cathedral. Fun Fact about me: I was raised in a catholic family. I’m baptized and took the communion too but as soon as I changed schools and started high school in a catholic one were we would pray every morning and have cathesism as a subject I stopped believing. I don’t know if I’m atheist but what I know is that I don’t believe in god and I believe in evolution. It’s funny because cathesism was one of my favorite subjects since we would discuss social issues and I like knowing about religion… I know quite a lot for someone who does not believe.
A lot of pine trees… I think they were pine trees… well they looked like it.
Also they were lots and lots of flowers… I love flowers I’m like a flower child or something, I see flowers and I can’t resist myself I have to take them pictures.
And beautiful roses even my grandma’s iPhone 6+ had trouble with the colors. They were so, so red they almost shined in the pictures. I think I edited these two.
This was in another touristic place we went to, Otto hill. We went up in a cable car. Up in the hill there was a rotating restaurant. While you were eating the restaurant would slightly rotate so you could see all the view. This was my favorite part.
I wish I could show you all the pictures but I don’t want to bore you. So I’m going to say bye with these three pictures I took in the Swiss colony… yeah because there’s a small swiss town here. I ate fondue in one of the restaurants and it was deliciously awesome.
