The sheet we have to fill in and sign because of prohibido substances. It looks very strict: crabbing the bags out of the bus, walking through the bus while we're outside doing the migration. Scanning our bags. The only food which is important are fruits ๐Ÿ™„. So it wasn't a problem but important is to say that you got this substances like Rice or plants and don't hide anything ๐Ÿ™. It takes one hour ๐Ÿ˜ฌ At 16pm we arrived at Punta Arenas and take a ticket at 17pm for the 3hour bus to Puerto Natales โœ…. Now sitting here driving through ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฑ.

Driving to El Calafate and don't & like this city, maybe because we're sick ๐Ÿ˜ท. Changing the Hostel after one night. We get Dulce de Leite, Marmelade and white bread with coffee and tea at every place. #breakfastinPatagonia Doing nothing at that day, but buying food ๐Ÿฅ˜, getting money ๐Ÿ’ฐ and relaxing in a double room ๐Ÿคง. At that evening we buy tickets for the glacier the next day ๐Ÿ‘

3 February 2017

We walk this 10km in 4hours like all maps where saying it's possible. But we're running, cause knowing the landscape... We get so happy arriving at the hostel and taking a cake ๐ŸŽ‚ with a hot chocolate like we did at the beginning. Taking a shower ๐Ÿšฟand i book a bus to El Calafate at 6pm and also a hostel there by booking in a restaurant #badwifiinhostel ๐Ÿฆ #expensivehostelsletusleavethisplace ๐Ÿ™„ Ooh, and i forget because those things are not important: we had no cash for the hostel and the Cardmachine ๐Ÿ’ณ didn't work. So we do our camping and say that we come back and pay. It works to pay with card after the camping โœ… #it'snotourproblem ๐Ÿ‘Œ #it'sourtrip ๐Ÿ‘
Getting up at 4:45 to walk roundabout 5 in the morning in the darkness to the top with some other people doing the same... ๐Ÿ‘ฃ On the mountain we saw the landscape but not the Fitz Roy because you have to go up to the mountain in front of it and then you saw #Fizzi. Well the weather was bad, getting higher and higher this shiddy way from stones in the fog and rain. No โ˜€๏ธ sun rising and people are coming back and say: "don't go there you see nothing!" We don't on there and turn around being very wet and freezing โ„๏ธ. At our tent we arrive at 9am. We took breakfast and decided to walk to El Chalten back. #cold โ›„๏ธ #wet ๐Ÿ’ฆ #badweather ๐ŸŒฌ #butgreatpictures ๐Ÿ˜

Some people talk about getting up early in the morning and walk up to the mountain to get the first sunstreams on the #fizzi ๐Ÿ™„

1 February 2017

We eat a cake and a hot chocolate before we start at 3pm to walk 4km to the first camping โ›บ๏ธ. The first kilometer was not easy with the bags (we let a whole bag in the hostel) and had a snacking bag. It goes up and it was more than a kilometer. But the nature is amazing and walking makes you fresh ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‘ฃ. At 7pm we get to the camping point (4hours instead of 2) but we're walking really relaxed ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿฝ. We don't know how to build up the tent โ›บ๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™ˆ. A friendly guy helps us to get it up. He was wearing a Quechua jacket ๐Ÿ˜‚. #itworks ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿค“ #wesnacksomericewitholiveoilandspicesandpeanuts ๐Ÿ˜‹ #wesleepwellandwarmwithalotofjacketsandwarmstuffonus โ›„๏ธ

We do a little trekking by first getting to an information point where we get informed about the nice trekking area. #glacierwaterisdrinkable ๐Ÿ˜‹ #whichtreksdotobybadweather ๐Ÿค“ #freecampingareas ๐Ÿ˜Š So we walk three hours up to two different views from a mountain. Falling asleep and sleep long the next day because the 20โ‚ฌ Hostel doesn't have breakfast included ๐Ÿ˜ฌ.
Finally we arrived early in the morning at 7:30 right at the hostel, because the bus company is next to it. Everywhere are people who are looking like trekking, hiking and walking. ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿšด We do breakfast cause we were prepared with coffee โ˜•๏ธ, mate โ˜•๏ธ, bread ๐Ÿž, sausage, apples ๐ŸŽ... ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿค“๐Ÿค“ Planning to go on tour, cause sitting for 24hours makes you wanna run ๐Ÿƒ.

29 January 2017

The people from the hostel and from the bus company told us something like that: Only this bus takes the Ruta40, you have to change busses at 3 at night in Los Antiguos where you have 20minutes to get some food... We saw the Marga bus till in Los Antiguos and the course looks very similar. We arrived in Los Antiguos at 20pm and at the bus terminal was no possibility to buy food or drinks. In the new bus we are roundabout 13 people. Oooh we got snacks again ๐Ÿ‘ป๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿซ #seeyoutomorrow ๐Ÿ˜ด๐ŸšŽ๐ŸŒŒ
#listofwordsmakesyoucrazy&smiling #cambio #cambiocambio ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ‘พ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ˜ฌ In Buenos and Bariloche people standing on the streets saying only the word #cambio so often and so fast #cambiocambiocambio ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ‘น๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿค– #hola, quรฉ tal? #hola, como estas? Like in some other countries: "hey whats up?" "Hi, alles klar?" ๐Ÿ–• #chicos #hola chicos That's sweet from the stewardess ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โœˆ๏ธ in a bus who always begins her sentence with "chicos, algo mas? or "chicos, bebida? ๐Ÿ‘ป #hola o gracias To everybody at the trekking in El Chalten you say "hola" or "gracias" if you are waiting to let them go first. #after50peopleit'senough ๐Ÿค
#losandes โ›ฐ #naturaleza ๐ŸŒฑ We got snacks ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ An apple ๐ŸŽ and apple juice ๐Ÿน with a bread integral filled with cheese and legumes ๐Ÿ˜‹ #hipsterhealthyfood ๐Ÿ˜ In the morning we even got instant coffee y una alfajor con dulce de leche ๐Ÿฎโ˜•๏ธ.

Two busses ๐ŸšŒ are going from Bariloche to El Chalten ๐Ÿ“‰. #ElChaltentravel starts at 7:30 in the morning along THE Ruta40, no snacks and terminal in the centro of Bariloche. #Margabusses starts at 15pm and takes another route, but is cheaper and snacks included at the bus terminal. We heard that the cheapest buses are bad and our hostel recommended the ElChaltentravel. 7:30 en Domingo: As we arrived at the ElChaltentravel bus just standing on the street alone in the morning two bus drivers and two bagpackers are sitting in the 44seated bus. ๐Ÿ˜… We take a seat ๐Ÿ’บand our bags take too and our food-snacking-bag for 24hours ๐Ÿค“ #wellprepared ๐Ÿ™ #letthetravelbegin ๐Ÿ€

#thedaywherewemissalot ๐Ÿ˜ข Today we take a bus to a mountain where we walk the 1km up to the top through a forest ๐ŸŒณ by getting an amazing view of the whole landscape with all the lakes ๐Ÿ˜. But we lost one of our sleeping masks ๐ŸŽญ on the way, which was the whole world ๐ŸŒŽ for us. Little things are happening and you know where you went wrong and hope that this cute chickens ๐Ÿฅon the mask makes another one happy like it makes us sad ๐Ÿ˜ญ. #YESweneedasleepingmaskforwalkingonahill ๐Ÿ˜ฌ #ifyourreadingthisandlaughing ๐Ÿ”‡#it'snotfunny โŒ #itwasafriend โ™ฅ๏ธ #weleavehimalone ๐Ÿ’ญ

"Only by cash ๐Ÿ’ฐyou can pay only by cash" The cash machine one kilometer away had no cash, than he told us that we can do it with paypal, but not the whole price. So we do this and has to leave the hostel, because we had an Airbnb stay for the next two days. In the next village called Dina Huapi. #cheaperthaneveryhostel โ˜ƒ๏ธ We had to change busses in the centro and so we relax there at a market, eating a choripan ๐Ÿ—, chocolate ๐Ÿซ and ice cream ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜.

23 January 2017

#snacksagain ๐Ÿฅ๐ŸŒฝ๐Ÿง€ #lunchat12 At 20 o'clock we finally arrived at Bariloche with great views of the nature. Free Wifi at the bus terminal and contacting the hostel where we are and hoping that they catch us, because we ask them 2 days before. But they got no car ๐Ÿš—, so because of our late arriving we had to take a bus ๐ŸšŒ where our SUBE card works ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘. But we got a room for two instead ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ The hostels in Bariloche are double price than in Buenos, so this douple-room is way more expensive ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ’ฐ.
In the middle of the night the floor gets wet because the stewardess ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โœˆ๏ธ cleaned it. Our important bag with all our cards and passport-stuff laying on the floor #besthidingplace gets wet too. Sooo good that we got this orange bag #dryinside ๐Ÿ‘Œ While your sleeping, the bus stops and you wake up. You don't get it if you're sleeping 2 or 5 hours. Everything is fine and you fall asleep ๐Ÿ’ค again thinking about nothing. In the morning you see the sun rising โ˜€๏ธ and want to look at the beautiful landscape. The next 6 hours we're driving through the Pampa and it's really like you think it is ๐Ÿ’ญ. Breakfast just some cookies and coffee after a little break in city in the middle of nowhere ๐ŸŒต.

22 January 2017

We got snacking in the bus ๐ŸŽ‰ ๐ŸŽ‰ ๐Ÿฅ˜ #meatwithham&cheese+potatos๐Ÿฑ #4differentsmallsnacks+coffee&coke ๐Ÿฅƒ It gets dark and it starts to rain as fuck with lightnings every second makes the heaven burning red and violet โ›ˆ๐ŸŒฉโšก๏ธ By driving through a neverland.
The first destination after Buenos Aires is Bariloche in the middle-west of Argentina ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท. Get ready for a 24hour bus ๐ŸšŒ๐Ÿ•. We got at 13:30 at the bus terminal in Buenos very early and relax there 1 hour and a half when we get nervous because the bus isn't written on the screen at 15:00 ๐Ÿ“บ ๐Ÿ•˜. The bus is late... how late nobody knows but a policewomen ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™€๏ธ told us something like 3 hours. So 3 hours and a half later the bus arrives. We take a snack and were just waiting there and the 5 hours runs not that slow that it seems. Other people waiting there. The bus terminal don't got nice snacking stuff so we can't get a frozen shake๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ซ, just empanadas, but good ones ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐ŸŒฎ. #freewifiatthebusterminal โœ… #6differentphoneloadingstations โœ…
