2 Comments Chile, San Fernando

Every room comes with a free guide puppy – Julian and Paul bonding
We have been in the mountains near San Fernando, about 2 hours south of Santiago, for the last couple of days, being waited on and constantly plied with wine, beer and Pisco Sours, by William and Carolina at their mountain hideaway.

One cool hot tub

Paul and Gill have been off on horses with a local guide exploring secret waterfalls and icy-cold pools, while I have been issued the task of stoking the fire for the wood-fired hot tub, making sure it was hot enough for their return. Sometimes I think this relationship is a little lop-sided!


Well that’s it! 26 hours and three flights door-to-door, and we’ll be back in sunny Perth … planning the next escapade.

Thanks for reading and as the cartoon says … “That’s all folks.”
