Home from home….

I have always wanted to go to Patagonia. Just the name sounds so interesting and wild. Patagonia. We never managed to make any long trips last time we were in Bolivia due to Latin Link rules, but our current mission organisation is more flexible.
We travelled to Buenos Aires and then Bariloche in the northern Lake District of Patagonia. Flying across Argentina, it was as if it had been ironed flat. Just miles and miles of pampas grass lands. Then suddenly, out of nowhere mountains appeared.
We stayed in a log cabin which we rented through Air B and B. It had gorgeous views through the trees to Lake Nahuel Huapi. We took the advice from our hosts and found lovely walks through the woods to the lake, stopping at viewpoints and reaching the summits of various peaks. The views were spectacular.
We spent a day kayaking with Santiago, our host, in his three person kayak.
A wonderful experience. Paddling through crystal clear water, with perfect reflections and not a sound except the lapping of water. We loved it.
We even stumbled across a Welsh tea shop and a couple of Welsh sounding places from the early pioneers who went from Wales to settle there.
