    Cacheuta Thermal Spa

    December 13, 2019 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Today we spent a day relaxing in the far out thermal waters of the Andes mountains, within one of valleys were different levels of Thermal pools, from cold to hot and with a lazy river on the bottom tier. We had to catch a bus here from the centre of Mendoza which took around an hour. We missed the first bus so had some waiting to do, so grabbed 2nd breakfast at a market cafe around the corner... It goes without saying cake was on the menu and we had it... Yes dulce de leche as always! (might have to go on a diet soon with all this cake).
    After we spent the day lazying around at the pools, we grabbed abit of something to eat at a BBQ place near the spa. As the guy assumed we spoke Spanish after zach asked briefly in Spanish about the menu offers, we had apparently ordered food and drinks! We weren't quite sure what we'd get though... 😂🤔🙄😳 But turns out we ordered fried eggs with chips, some spreadable cheese and topped with chopped warmed hotdogs! 😂 Ermmm yes healthy, they love all the beige foods here! Not to worry we had food back at the hostel too.

    Mis hermosos Andes 🏔🗻

    2 Stunden mit dem Bus aus Mendoza in die wunderschönste aller Gebirgslandschaften! Ich bin im ersten Moment wieder schockverliebt und erinnere mich an meine wunderschöne Zeit im letzten Jahr hier! Die schneebedeckten Gipfel und schönste Bergseen.

    Heute haben wir einen ordentlichen 14km Marsch durch die Anden Argentiniens gemacht und sind mit einem wundervollen Blick belohnt worden! Davon kann ich niemals genug bekommen...

    Da wir 2 eibhalb Stunden auf den letzten Bus nach mendoza warten mussten nachdem wir zurück in Cacheuta angekommen sind, haben wir uns eine nette Bodega gesucht und sind als Reina und Pricessa de Alemania in dir Familie aufgenommen worden, der 5-jährige Matteo hat sogar Zombie-Bilder für uns gemalt.

    Die Einfachheit und Gastfreundschaft der Menschen ist so ansteckend und herzerwärmend! Ich liebe es ♥️

    Not So Good, Not So Bad

    June 5, 2018 in Argentina ⋅ 🌙 3 °C

    This post is named after my favourite tagline from a local restaurant. Needless to say, we didn't eat there!

    A short drive out of Mendoza and up a valley in the impressive Andes we found some lovely thermal pools. We arrived at 7pm after everything was shut so we spent a quiet night camped outside.

    The next day we spent 7 blissful hours soaking in hot bubbly water made all the better as you could bring your own food and drink in. Our friend Tony arrived along with his girlfriend Carol so we all decided to drink a bottle or two of wine and spend another night in the car park!

    The next day we drive through some gorgeous scenery with craggy peaks and turquoise lakes before climbing up to about 3300m to cross the Andes at Frontier Los Liberatores into Chile.

    What a beautiful border crossing this is - the peaks were covered in fresh snow and we had a perfectly sunny day. We had been a little worried about entering Chile as we'd heard tales of overzealous officials pulling everything out of camper and looking for contraband fruit, veg, meat, dairy etc etc, plus that snow chains (bought at great expense) were compulsory. However we ticked the box as having food to declare, gave them a bag with a few old veggies in and after a cursory inspection and stamping of Maya's papers we were on our way down the windiest road in the world (fortunately no chains required)!
