    Ruta de los Siete Lagos (RLSL) Day 1

    February 28, 2016 in Argentina ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

    First day of our bonkers bicycle tour of the Seven Lakes Road. It started with a boat trip to a peninsula, where we biked through lovely old forest - lovely except for the very steep sandy sections and the steps we had to push the bikes up, some of which were unnecessary as we missed the path... Ho hum. Eventually arrived at town called Villa la Angostura for lunch. Then the final 26km turned into over 30k as we thought we'd missed the turning, hadn't, but added several km in the looking... Ho hum again. Altogether 60 km later, with sore butts and in need of food we arrived at our hostel by the lake. It's more like a homestay, with sheep & pigs roaming the garden and a gorgously ancient wooden house. Mama of the house, whose 70th birthday it was that day and who is 4 foot tall, 4 foot wide and charming, made us steak, tomatos & wine for dinner, bless her. There was nowhere else for us to go for miles around before you ask... Hot shower & bed by 9!Read more
