    Natur, Idylle und "tierisches"

    February 29 in Chile ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Vom Markt aus gehen Stiegen zum Wasser runter - es wirkt wie ein See, ruhig, beschaulich dort. In der Sonne sitzen und einfach nur schauen und genießen. Die "Steine" am Strand sind vielmehr Unmengen Muschelschalen, Fischkopf- und ganze Fischskelette.

    Auch Hunde sind hier und suchen sich den einen oder anderen Leckerbissen.
    Einer der Hunde ist besonders wachsam - und führt sich gleich auf wie ein Superheld!

    Puerto Montt - erste Eindrücke

    February 27 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Nach der ersten Nacht in wirklich wunderbaren Betten mit guten Matratzen können wir heute endlich die ersten Eindrücke gewinnen. Das Frühstück ist schon mal fabelhaft - von Eierspeise und mit Käse überbackenen Tomaten/Zucchinischeiben bis hin
    zu Kuchen, Müsli und Croissants ist alles da. Sogar eine supertolle "Pancake-Back-Maschine", die natürlich von Stephan sofort
    in Anspruch genommen wird. Man drückt auf den Knopf, drin wird dann die Teigmasse portioniert und gebacken. Schwupps nach ca. 1 Minute kommt seitlich das fertige - ur gute und flaumige - Pancake raus. Toll! :-)

    Das Wetter ist morgens feucht und trüb, klart aber gegen Mittag auf und die Sonne lacht ungehindert vom Himmel. Die Luft ist allerdings kühl und es ist windig. Ich weiß nicht wie oft ich mich an- und ausgezogen habe. Jacke an und wieder aus, Halstuch rauf und runter .... schwierige klimatische Bedingungen hier :-) :-D

    Die Stadt Puerto Montt liegt direkt am Meer, eine Insel ist nahezu in greifbarer Nähe vorgelagert. Die Stadt hat Charme, leider aber
    auch einiges von den Unruhen abgekriegt. Wir sehen viele immer noch verbarrikadierte Häuser (zB leider die entzückende kleine Holzkathedrale, in die wir nicht reingehen konnten), zerschlagene Fensterscheiben, vergitterte Auslagen .... die Menschen tummeln sich in der Sonne und das Leben hier ist absolut als normal zu bezeichnen. Überall wird gearbeitet, um die Zerstörungen und Schmierereien an den Wänden zu beseitigen.

    Uns gefällt Chile jetzt schon!!!

    Back to square one

    December 24, 2017 in Chile ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    We walked all over the towm and didn't find anything open exca small shop selling alcohol and groceries. We bought some drinks and salty snacks for the night. None of the restaurants was open so we decided to go back to our hotel since the restaurant was open there. When we reached back, we were told that the restaurant kitchen was closed. We requested that we didn't have any place to eat so they asked the cook if he could fix something. He agreed to do sandwiches for us. They had the desserts available as well so we ordered some pana cota as well.
    Well, that's how our Christmas celebration went. We we there in the restaurant way after everyone had left, eating sandwiches, drinking wine and enjoying pana cota 😁

    Christmas morning at Puerto Montt

    December 25, 2017 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    We woke up a bit late and made it to the breakfast table just 10 minutes before closing. After the breakfast, Maria came over to our room with the Christmas goodies. We had some sweets and after that, we took some time to get ready and decided to go around the town to see if anything was open.Read more

    Arrived in Puerto Montt!

    May 16, 2015 in Chile ⋅ 🌬 16 °C

    We're here! A few hours delay due to the rough seas but we arrive at the port safely and watch the docking of the ship. A short bus ride to the station and we say goodbye to half of our newfound friends heading off on new adventures.

    The rest of us are in town for one night and explore everything Puerto Montt has to offer.. which doesn't take too long! First port of call was lunch... We start walking towards the markets however it starts raining heavily and in the confusion we are bustled into a small "restaurant" which turns out to be the third floor of someones' house! Fortunately we have Lorena there to translate. Salmon all round and a seafood soup for Suki.

    Bellies full we head off to the fish markets to check out the locals in action. The port is located next to one of the largest salmon farms in the world and here we find mussels the size of my hand and salmon going for equivalent to $6 per kg.. too bad we can't stockpile it!

    More rain into the evening so we find refuge at the nearby mall and arrive just in time to catch the new Avengers movie and some "doggis" for dinner :-) The National Park is closed due to the recent volcano eruptions so we are off to Valdivia tomorrow!

    A walk in the rain

    December 24, 2017 in Chile ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    We checked in and had our lunch in the restaurant of the hotel. After that we all went back to the rooms and took a short nap. When we woke up, it was still raining. We went down amd asked at the reception to find us a good place to celebrate Xmas. They told that most probably everything would be closed but still started making some enquires over the phone. After about 20 min, we were told they couldn't find anything.
    We decided to go for a walk and see if we could find something.
    The whole city was closed. No shops, no restaurants, nada... Nothing was open. The church was open so we went in to check it. It was lovely and well lit.

    Back to the hotel

    December 25, 2017 in Chile ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    We walked around the town for a while more. We found a nice hotel with a pool on the top floor. The views were lovely but the restaurant was a bit expensive. We went around the town but couldn't find anything open so we just went back to the hotel and had our dinner and slept.Read more

    Back in Santiago

    January 21, 2018 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    We spent 1 day in Puerto Montt (due to a techno-heavy music festival going on in the main square we quickly termed it “Techno Montt”) and then took a flight back to Santiago, where we arrived in the evening.

    After being on the ferry for 24 hours, we were keen to go for a little walk in Puerto Montt, so we devised a little “Mirador-Route” (mirador=viewpoint) and enjoyed some views over the bay of Puerto Montt. There is a lot of German-speaking influence here, so a lot of places have German names (for example, we walked past a minimarket called “Ausblick View”.) We also managed to find a cafe that has soy milk and so Anna was able to enjoy a cappuccino again after weeks of tea only :-)

    Finally back in Santiago, we checked into our hostel (again a very nice historical building-turned-hostel) and went to bed. Tomorrow: two days of cycling around the wine region in the Maipo river valley. :-)
