      ... It was hilly, but I still made great time. My hostel was 25k down a ripio road. This took me over 3 hours of pushing and sliding and grunting up and down steep hills on a loose surface. I was glad to have made good time earlier and arrived after a solid 130k day. The weather had made an idiot of me. I had started in the damp and grey, but things had ever so slowly improved through the day. I had not worn suncream and by evening my arms were burned. So I now must wear long ...

      Some play for money. Some play for show. And some just play to share the Inner Glow.

      ... most beautiful churches we have ever seen on the inside, constructed entirely from wood. We used Castro as a base to visit the nearby island of Quinchoa and its capital Achoa, which the guide book claimed to be the home of Chilote culture only to find that although it was in a beautiful setting and had another impressive wooden church (the oldest in Chiloé, though not as impressive as Castros') there was little else to see there.

      Chilean island holiday

      A travel blog entry by daveanddale on Dec 08, 2014



      We are still
      on the road today to finish our epic leg to the island Chiloe and the city of
      Castro. After breakfast at the hostel we walked down to the bus terminal and
      were very lucky to get on a bus straightaway. We are starting to act like
