I took the cross-boder bus from San Martin, which left ridiculously early at 6am - I had no option, there's only one bus a day to Pucon...damn you bloody Argentinians!! It was a beautiful drive, nice cloudless day and we went through the Parque National Lanin as we crossed into Chile...surely one of the most beautiful border crossings in the world! Typical bag checks etc trying to get into Chile took an hour or so, but around 11am we rolled into Pucon, with the stunningly imposing Volcan Villarica on the horizon. Pucon has an awesome setting here in the Lake District, with Lago Villarica on one side and Volcan Villarica in the background about 30km away.
Unfortunately I was coming down with a head cold the day I arrived, so my time here has been spent relaxing and trying to get myself better.
Hopefully I will be feeling better this week as I head up to Maule Valley for some wine-tasting and then finish off in Santiago!
