    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.

    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 …

    ... coming in with their morning catch, which they battered and fried right there in the boat. They were very kind and insisted that we all have some as well, although I had to fight some seagulls for my piece of fish.

    The boats to the reserve would only be willing to take a group of at least seven people. And so, more waiting in the cold, staring at the islands of the Reserve in the distance. Our saviour arrived in the form of a French couple. ...

    ... flooded public facilities. Rab goose down jacket, great substitute for a pillow. Every piece of electronic equipment I have with me (Laptop, iPod, Kindle) full to the brim with battery biscuits. Toothbrush in hand luggage and finally a loaf of bread with an entire tub of peanut butter. I was prepared for the apocalypse, this bus hadn't a chance of breaking me. I'd arrive at my destination fresh as a daisy with a spring in my step having taken in ...

    ... island for swimming and laying on the beach, but it was rather cloudy and chilly so we just walked around. We got back onto our boat and headed to the highlight of our trip, Choros Island, which is famous for its penguins, sea lions, pelicans, otters, and the most exciting part for me, 2 sea elephants! For the preservation of the island, as well as, safety of humans, we weren't allowed on the island but could see an abundance of ...

    ... think I'd be able to wake up after like 3 hours of sleep. And hopefully staying up will help flip my schedule back around. It's been fun being nocturnal, but I don't think my classes and work will appreciate my new lifestyle that much.

    It's crazy to think that we're leaving tomorrow! I feel like I just got here! Though I am ready to come home, don't get me wrong, it's been fun, but I miss home and my friends and ...
