They had opted to fly and set off a day after us but had arrived in Valparaiso at the same time! That's how long our journey was!!!

After breakfast we had ...

The next morning I slept in a little, enough to get in trouble with mum who had tried to Skype me. We took the dogs out to a different hill with more shade but beautiful views of the valley. We had time for a quick swim before William and I headed to a nearby German pub which had delicious beers made on site. Magdalena joined us as we were ...
