Puerto Madryn #list


2 March 2017

Sitting in the bus ๐ŸšŒ; now in Cordoba and only 13 hours left ๐Ÿ˜… Second largest city in ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท just crossing ๐Ÿ™ But today we get for breakfast an Alfajor with Coffee โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿช at 7am #whysoearly๐Ÿ˜ด 5hours later we get chips, peanuts, cheap Fanta and what you guess an Alfajor ๐Ÿฅ”๐Ÿฅœ๐Ÿช๐Ÿผ. Ooh at 4pm we get an Alfajor with Coffee โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿช Sooo good that we got banana ๐ŸŒ, apple ๐ŸŽ and some sandwiches ๐ŸŒฏ. Hoping to get the meal at the evening early ๐Ÿ™ At the time we booked many companies had closed because of holidays and another one arrived in Salta at 22:30. So Andesmar was the best decision ๐Ÿคfor this long and expensive trip ๐Ÿค“ Our way through Argentina ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜
Strange eating in Southamerica: #InstantCoffee โ˜•๏ธ It's normal to get hot water with coffee powder, sugar and milk powder. That's why we celebrate good roasted coffee here ๐ŸŽ‰ #Breakfast ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฐ Getting cake/cookies for breakfast or just marmelade, dulce de leite and sweet cornflakes. #Sugar ๐Ÿš Jogurth with sugar, juice with sugar, sweets everywhere, coffee with sugar (also the regular coffee powder) #chocolate ๐Ÿซ Drinking chocolate everytime tastes good made with real chocolate ๐Ÿซ. But buying chocolate in a supermarket you can't get much diversity or good ones ๐Ÿ™„ #carne&verduras ๐Ÿ– ๐Ÿฅ’ The empanadas are filled with a lot of meat but the vegetarian variation is only a little bit of spinach (most times). You can find really good ones with verduras o atรบn/pescado. #buses ๐ŸšŒ Okay these are busses, but in Argentina. You can get two meals with Coke on a day and a small breakfast which is good. Or you get alfajores, chips, peanuts with cheap coke. Need luck with the company ๐Ÿ€

In the other Hostel we stayed two nights till today we got 10% with our ISIC student card ๐Ÿ’ณ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜ and checked out at 12 going into a coffeehouse where we get such a nice Espresso from Honduras ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฎ; and from Brazil ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ทwith icecream using Wifi. Changing this place to Mostaza where we are getting 2 menus paying 1 with our ISIC ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ๐Ÿผ and going a little bit to the beach. At the bus terminal a lady just gives us two sandwiches ๐Ÿ€and at 21:30 we take the 33hour bus to Salta ๐Ÿ˜…

Today we drive first to Punta Cantor only hoping to see Orcas passing by. We arrived in the fog at 9 and can't see the sea ๐ŸŒซ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ‘Œbut the same numbers on the wall: Last watching 25.02. 6Orcas ๐Ÿ˜ง Alone in the nature waiting an hour to see the sea and getting hope ๐Ÿ˜ฌ. Taking pictures from penguins ๐Ÿง, sea lions ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿฆ and relaxing in the sun โ˜€๏ธ. We're waiting so long, eating some sandwiches and drinking tea. The sun hits me hard i didn't realized it with the cold wind. At 4pm the rangers told us maybe in two or thee hours the Orcas will arrive. We got water and durazno ๐ŸŠ from the rangers who showed us pictures and videos from the Orcas. At 5pm we drove away, cause we mentioned that the rangers didn't know if the Orcas will arrive ๐Ÿ˜… #beautifulsunsetwaiting ๐ŸŒ… Relaxing day feeling like a photographer waiting for THE photo ๐Ÿ˜ƒ We tried it really hard to see them knowing that the first day was correct but not the place ๐Ÿ˜Œ.

26 February 2017

These day we do nothing thinking about the missing Orcas. At the evening we decided to do it tomorrow again with the german lady, cause the boy was driven to Buenos Aires. Holidays in Puerto Madryn crosses our plans and no car left for the next day, which have to be beautiful. It was a beautiful day and we saw everyone on the Playa ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. Crazy city on holidays ๐Ÿ˜‚. The day after this we get a car ๐Ÿš— and drive again to the Peninsula Valdรฉs, hoping for the Orcas.

25 February 2017

At 5pm we have to drive back for getting by light back home. The next stop was Punta Pyramides where we saw at least Sealions ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿฆ and a great view. The last stop on the way back with a nice island and Flamengos let us again see the beauty of the nature ๐Ÿ˜ So today we had a nice sunny day with a lot of animals in the nature and only miss the Orcas.
Along the road of stones for 50km to see some Penguins ๐Ÿง and Seaelephants ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ˜ But at this place was written: Last Orcas watching: 25.02.2017 ; 6 Orcas ๐Ÿ˜ง #noway #wearrived2hourstoolate Waiting at this place again and a ranger takes a picture from a black point in the water ๐Ÿ’ฆ which might be an Orca ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜ฌ
Arriving at 9 at Punta Norte, so driving 3 hours for being right to the high tide at this place. We're waiting there, the first 4 people for an hour and then arriving some other people... We saw the Seelions ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿฆ relaxing at the beach. The Orcas can catch the little ones by landing on the beach, that's why we're waiting until 13:00. We didn't saw an Orca and decided to drive to the next place called Punta Cantor.
5 am we woke up and hope for a coffee and cake but we don't get the promised breakfast that early, cause the woman from the hostel was sleeping an hour too long๐Ÿ˜…. Well, driving along the road for 100km was easy with a beautiful sunset ๐ŸŒ…๐Ÿ˜ and Guanacos on the way ๐ŸฆŒ. But the next 60km on a road of stones driving 60km/hour and less because of sheeps ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ‘, chicken๐Ÿ”, guanacos ๐ŸฆŒ, rabbits ๐Ÿฐ, one fox ๐Ÿบ.

23 February 2017

In the nice hostel where we get selfmade baked cakes every morning we met a woman and a guy from Germany. With those too we rent a car ๐Ÿš— for driving to the Peninsula Valdรฉs to watch the Orcas two days after arriving. A tour costs for both of us as much as the car but we are four people ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘Œ We buy food the next day and organized some things cause we want to drive early.
