Returning to the mainland after our visit to Chiloé, we now made our way back to Puerto Varas in the Los Lagos region. I’d found a cheapish hostal when I’d visited a few days earlier, just a couple of blocks round the corner from the hotel where mum and dad would be staying. My hostal had a garage so I’d been able to leave the bike there with peace of mind whilst we went off our on road trip. My room there was a little damp though, so it was very nice to be able to take our afternoon breaks at mum and dad’s much nicer hotel (who kept us plied with cups of tea:).
The weather was a little better this time round and we set off eastwards round Lago Llanquihue to hunt out the best views we could find of the volcanoes.
