A travel blog entry by vikkiandchris


From Iquique to La Serena we had the longest bus journey yet, 20 hours! We thought that as the journey was so long, we'd try get the 180 degree reclining seats but after some research scrapped that idea as it would've cost £100! We got the regular semi cama seats instead and left at 8pm. After a film and a sleeping pill, we managed to sleep …

La Serena + Valle del Elqui

A travel blog entry by bergfex75


Marcella ist nun von Valparaiso über Mendoza wieder zurück "in die Heimat" nach Buenos Aires gefahren. Poldi und ich werden die kommenden 1,5 Wochen zusammen das nördliche Chile bereisen. Erste (Zwischen-) Station auf dem Weg zur bekannten Atacama-Wüste ist La Serena.

Im Grunde ist die Küstenstadt am Pazifik (150.000 Ew) ganz nett, aber …

Nous voilà à la Serena, où nous ne sommes plus que 4 du groupe de la vallée del Elqui. On en profite pour aller manger du poisson (frais?) sur le port de Coquimbo, on s'étonne des pélicans et loups de mers, on se détend et on joue aux cartes en terrasse dans le barrio ingles de Coquimbo.

Une fois les adieux fait aux 2 derniers, on se …

Deserts and Penguins

A travel blog entry by tomtranter


We're in Chile now and have done some cool tours. After relaxing on a beach for a day or 2 we headed to La Serena where desert landscapes perfect for observing the stars meet freezing antarctic sea currents which provide a habitat for humbolt penguins, sea lions and bottlenose dolphins. On our first night we went to an observatory and were shown …

Auf in den "warmen" Norden!

Da ich es die letzten Tage mit dem Gehen ein wenig uebertrieben
habe und mittlerweile jeder Schritt schmerzt, habe ich den letzten Tag in Santiago brav im Hostel verbracht und meinen
gequetschten Muskeln ein wenig Ruhe gegoennt.
Nach einem gemuetlichen Grillabend mit reichlich Wein, der bis in die fruehen Morgenstunden andauerte, begann …

    We ended up staying here because the hostel we'd wanted to stay at was booked up and this one was on the same street. The family that run this hostel are lovely, so friendly and because it has family run it has a really homely feel to it. The rooms, communal areas and bathrooms were very clean but the kitchen often felt grubby. The decor looked as though it could do with a bit of a spruce up. Our room did have a TV which was a nice touch. Gardens were lovely and full of flowers! There's not much nearby except the bus station which is really close. Its about a 15 min walk to the supermarket, 15 min walk to the town centre and 25 min walk to the beach.
