Andes Mountain range, Chile - 24th December 2012

By: Leslie

Summer so far doesn't really look like it, the sky has been mostly grey and there have been some rainy days :thinking:

Today we made a trip to the mountain range near the argentinian border

As we got closer some nice flowers appeared on the road

And closer we found Araucarias, the national chilean tree!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Chrissi/IMG_1443_zps6d12a62b.jpg

Soon we started noticing the height we were at :)

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Chrissi/IMG_1470_zpsd6538a94.jpg

And we kept going up...
The view was really beautiful from up here!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Chrissi/IMG_1476-1_zps94d545a7.jpg

And the wind was very cold, but fresh mountain air... ahhh B)

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Chrissi/IMG_1493_zps3fc8072e.jpg

It was a very very nice day!
Now we are preparing for christmas ;)

Puerto Saavedra, Chile - 7th January 2013

By: Leslie

We went to spend New Year's day to a beach near a little town called Puerto Saavedra by the sea

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Chrissi/SAM_0008_zps8a6afe33.jpg

When we got there we climbed a big hill to take a look at the beach from above

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Chrissi/SAM_0009_zpsd428cdd1.jpg

Ahhh, how beautiful

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Chrissi/SAM_0019_zps6b9243f6.jpg

Then we went back down to enjoy the sand and the sea

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Chrissi/SAM_0031_zpsa4042f89.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Chrissi/SAM_0027_zps39102553.jpg

That hill back there is the one we climbed :rolleyes:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Chrissi/SAM_0040_zps7cce08b2.jpg

It was a very  nice day
I enjoyed the sea! :rolleyes:

Puerto Montt, Chile - 7th April 2013

By: Leslie

Hi Mum!

Do you remember the city of Puerto Montt that I visited a few months ago? well... now we live here! We moved in summer and eversince we had problems with the internet because we were living in an area with the poorest signal you can imagine, but last week we moved again to a second house in Puerto Montt and now finally everything is normal so I can write again:D

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_1672_zpsdf5b89c3.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_1679_zpsab639d03.jpg

University started again and Leslie seems busy again, but we have still taken some time to explore around... It's autumn now and the weather is changing quickly so now I'm really happy that i have a scarf with me

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/IMG_1704_zps19d34a42.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/IMG_1716_zpseb168c4f.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/IMG_1733_zps35429c0c.jpg

I will come back with more photos soon  :)

Bye bye!

Frutillar, Chile - 23rd April 2013

By: Leslie

On the weekend we decided to make a trip to the city of Frutillar which is some kilometers to the north, I had already been there but a second time it never bad. First we frove to a small city called Llanquihue.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2007_zpsc8b6bcdd.jpg

In Llanquihue there was a pond with lots of lotuses, but because of the time of the year none had flowers.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2011_zpse710e0c0.jpg

To get to our destination, Frutillar, we had two choices, the high way of a small road through the hills by the side of Llanquihue Lake , so we chose the last option because hills by the lake sounded like a good combination for nice landscapes :)

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2017_zps7a78dafb.jpg

What an interesting mural :rolleyes:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2020_zps9cf6b43d.jpg

And here we reached Llanquihue lake, the sign says that we are at the "swans viewpoint", and no wonder why it has this name...

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2032_zps46a3ad0f.jpg

giant black necked swans!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2024_zps6a4ad20b.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2035_zps485495e0.jpg

And here we started out way through the small road to Frutillar!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2046_zps3b355a67.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2050_zpsdbe37b23.jpg

Autumn arrived at this side of the world and you could see yellow and orange leaves everywhere on the ground  :rolleyes:
I really like the colors of autumn!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2058_zps34fa517f.jpg

Most of the land around the lake is used in farms, back there very small you can see Osorno volcano :)

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2066_zpsd692c0d0.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2095_zpsc8be3c7b.jpg

We stopped for a while in these gardens, what a beautiful view we had from up here!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2101_zps15345886.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2154_zpsbff82c23.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2167_zps419509b2.jpg

And after driving a bit more we arrived in Frutillar :rolleyes:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2185_zps4493dc99.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2179_zpsea0fd6fd.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2188_zps11b6ff3b.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2198_zpsd3d4ea99.jpg

This is the main theater that I once told you about :)

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2208_zps37fe891e.jpg

Frutillar is a very musical city, almost everything here is related to music, there was even a fake piano by the lake!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2213_zps2edb3f77.jpg

Autumn is all around! What wonderful colors it brings! :D

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2215_zps8e356552.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2224_zps17ccceb6.jpg

Look what I saw outside the goverment building, do you notice anything familiar? :rolleyes: it is because this city was founded for the german settlers back around 1850... could I stay and say Im one of the settlers maybe?  :p

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2237_zps4c979c73.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Mimi/IMG_2245_zps4c1beff2.jpg

And this was the end of the trip, it was a very nice day! I hope you liked the photos!

Bye bye!

Fresia, Chile - 1st May 2013

By: Leslie

Hello mum!

A few days ago we thought of exploring around the undiscovered south, so we got in the car and started driving :rolleyes:
There are really beautiful green prairies around!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/IMG_2258_zps948afca9.jpg


After driving for a while we arrived to a small town called Fresia,
there was not much to see there, there weren't even people on the streets, a very small and quiet town it was.
This seemed to be the main church of the town.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/IMG_2272_zps5fdb6b94.jpg

As there was not much to see in the town of Fresia, we kept driving on the roads through the country.
This seems to be the land of mushrooms!
I found one so big and round that almost resembles a bun! :D

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/SAM_1260_zpsb62fcf1e.jpg

In the middle of nowhere we found this monument standing by the road, it marks the place where the last battle between the spanish and the chileans was, on March 6th, 1820.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/SAM_1183_zps9942519f.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/SAM_1176_zpsb8011848.jpg

This is the coat of arms of this place, Fresia.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/SAM_1191_zps4f1beb21.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/SAM_1187_zpsc301452b.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/SAM_1177_zps0cd73f42.jpg

All the trees look beautiful dressed in yellow :rolleyes:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/SAM_1211_zpsb90c49ac.jpg

Then we kept driving and on the top of a little hill we saw a church :rolleyes:

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/SAM_1218_zps73ed20c9.jpg

So we drove to it, it was beautiful!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/SAM_1224_zps3f4bdc0a.jpg

And next to the church there was a field with deers! :D
The fawns they were a little shy to come closer so I could only see them from the distance, but the grown up ones were friendly!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/SAM_1257_zpsabca7977.jpg

The ground was full of chestnuts, the deers loved them!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/SAM_1275_zpsfc0d129a.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/SAM_1265_zps389e60f6.jpg

Next to the church there was a small cemetery.
When the sun started setting we went back to the car and returned to Puerto Montt.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/SAM_1286_zps34356b11.jpg

And we went to a supermarket where I found "piñones", the seed of Araucarias (monkey puzzles - the national tree). They're sold as food, the only thing you have to do is boil them and theyre ready to eat :o

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/vaca%20puerto/SAM_1291_zps1e016121.jpg

It was a very nice day!
Bye bye!

Caleta la Arena, Chile - 21st May 2013

By: Leslie

One afternoon we drove to a small fishing village, it was already getting dark when we got there but I could still take a few photos :)

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/IMG_2286_zpse4a667d6.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/IMG_2289-1_zpsbe5bd85e.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/IMG_2291-1_zps45f09e4c.jpg

It was very cold also, so we hurried back into the car and drove back home.

Bye bye!

Puerto Montt, Chile - 22nd May 2013

By: Leslie

Hello hello!

We visited a train museum, it was very nice and there were lots of old trains and machines!

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/IMG_3491_zpsb6733416.jpg

This is what they used to load the coal inside the trains..

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/IMG_3497_zps1c728673.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/IMG_3508_zpsf91ec26d.jpg

Most of the trains of the museum were back there, but I couldnt go any closed because there was a closed gate that we couldnt pass.

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/IMG_3517_zps0a66d0d2.jpg

This was the presidential car long long ago :o

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/IMG_3521_zps6b255b08.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/IMG_3527_zps1c4682c1.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/IMG_3529_zpsec594899.jpg

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/IMG_3532_zps798cdb8e.jpg

Next to the museum there was an art gallery so we went in to see a few paintings...
This was my favourite  :D

http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/b445/Resurie/Claire%20Tamias/IMG_3511_zps4118a9ee.jpg


Now I'm packing my bags, tomorrow I leave back home! :D
Bye bye and see you soon!
