Well this is going to be a real quick update as have been to 3 ports in Chile now but the first wont count as was only off the ship for 30 mins due to it being a tender port.
Punta Arenas is still the same as 10 years ago, not alot there so not alot to say.
Puerto Montt was really good as went on tour to some other towns that are situated on a lake with the volcanos and mountains in the background. Visited a small german settlement as they arrived there in about the 1850s. They make great cake there and do some great weaving with big looms. The countryside is amazing as you will see when i manged to get the pictures online.
Valparaiso, Well have been off to a vineyard today to sample the wine which wasnt that good really. The white was ok but am rather more partial to the red side of wine but the stuff i tasted was really not nice so opted out of buying any. We then went round vina del mar which is the beach resort and very cosmopolitan. The beaches are packed as its the summer holidays here so the whole family spends the day there.
Well we have 8 sea days now until we reach Papeete and Bora Bora, how excited am i. I truely believe am off to paradise and really cant wait as those 8 sea days will be worth it at the end.
Its been a really good cruise this one around South America. Pictures to follow really really soon.
