... Our landlords to be, Ivanna and Harry, offered to store the bag for us until we returned to the apartment we rented from them in July for our last skiing/snowboarding adventure on this year-long voyage.
Feeling refreshed after having taken full advantage of the Green House's hot showers and clean laundry, we headed northward along the infamous Ruta de Los Siete Lagos, a road that winds its way through dense pine forests, towering snowcapped mountains ...
... from the international arrivals area to Terminal C with my luggage (terrible lack of customer service). Now I’m being told to stand in a line to recheck my bag?!!
I let my feelings be known to the agent, questioning how AA does not have a recheck desk in the international arrivals hall. She seemed somewhat sympathetic to my grievance, but responded, “This is the system we have.” I wanted to scream at the top of my lungs.

TravelPod Member ReviewsPatanuk Lake Hostel San Carlos de Bariloche
This hostel is a good value for its price. It has a beautiful lake view from the common room and the staff is super friendly.
