Saying goodbye to inspiring Chile for now. . We drive past endless lakes, forest, waterfalls, glaciers... It’s a slow journey, the road is loose gravel but our kombi Marina is not complaining so far. It’s the lake General Carrera that stretches hundreds of kilometers along the road on the left side and the national park with the same name on the right. Few other cars are with us today, probably not the best weather for this type type of roads. . After a few hours the sky opened up and let rays of sunshine through to lead the way. We stopped for a little bit to enjoy the warmth while listening to Eddie Vedder. And he reminds us to not get too lost in everyday life and focus on the important things: β€œ...you think you have to want more than you need. Until you have it all you won’t be free...”. So we stayed and kept taking in the view before continuing onwards to Argentina. . #marinathevan #theslowmovingvan . . . . #chiletravel #chile_shots #chilegram #chileestuyo #visitchile #surdechile #lakes #lagogeneralcarrera #dreamtrips #dream_spots #landscape_lover #landscape_capture #landscapelovers #landscapehunter #sonyalpha #a7 #vidanatural #viagemtop #summer #instagood #moments #momentos #vanlife #kombilife #rvlife #verao2019 at Lago General Carrera

at Glaciar O'Higgins

Our new favorite glacier. . We boarded a boat knowing that it would take 4h just to get to the glaciar. It was grey, dark, and drizzling this morning. We hadn’t booked anything and just turned up at the little, new port of Bahamondes. Luckily a bunch of people didn’t turn up and we took their space on the boat. . The ride was torture. Strong winds from the west made the entire boat turn port side so much that it was not possible to stand up for more than a few seconds. After about 2h we left the parts of the lake protected by mountains and the winds created waves that made us question if we accidentally had entered the pacific ocean. At this time half of the passengers were already running to the only 2 bathrooms available. @paupetri had turned slightly green and I was white like a ghost. Luckily the boat turned westwards at some point and we had the wind coming from the front which stabilized the whole journey. . Getting closer to the glacier O’Higgins we could see numerous other glaciers and huge chunks of ice floating towards us. The most amazing event was the sun coming out right when we arrived at the glaciar. So much that we could see the little brother glaciar coming down the mountain on the left, a stunning combination of blue sky and clouds, and all of it floating above the turquoise waters of the lake. . #marinathevan #theslowmovingvan . . . . #glaciarohiggins #glaciar #glacierlagoon #chileπŸ‡¨πŸ‡± #patagoniachilena #chile_natural #carreteraaustral #ruta7 #igtravel #moments #traveladdict #travelgram #travelers #travelphotography #landscapephotography #landscape #sonyalpha #sony #a7ii #earth_shots #planet_earth_shots #planetearth #nature #natureza #vanlife #kombilife #rvlife at O'Higgins Glacier

The beautiful colors of Chile. πŸ˜πŸ™Œ . So many lakes and so many rivers. When we think back to the endless desert landscape of Atacama in the north of Chile it becomes even more fascinating how much water there actually is in the south of the country. The melting glaciers of the huge ice fields are doing their part in filling up every valley we drive through. And it almost seems like each of the lakes has its own color. From bright, almost white through turquoise to the darkest blue all is part of nature’s colorful paintings. . #marinathevan #theslowmovingvan . . . . #patagoniachilena #south #ontheroad #roadlife #lakes #roadrunner #vw1600 #brisk #summertimesadness #kombivan #berge #seen #bluesky #turqoisewater #vanliving #vanlifestyle #vanlifemagazine #vanlifeadventures #rvliving #fulltimerv #reisefieber #viagemdossonhos #viagemadois #viajemais #viajeporchile #lifechangingplaces at Puerto RΓ­o Tranquilo

After the rain comes the rainbow. πŸ€— . Traveling south on the Carretera Austral, somewhere near Rio Tranquillo, the rain stopped just for a little bit to let the sun warm our faces. And with it came a rainbow so vivid in colors and complete that we had to stop just to stare... . #marinathevan #theslowmovingvan . . . . #chile #patagonia #carreteraaustral #sur #summer #sunshine #rainbow #igtravel #travelgram #wanderlust #fernweh #reiselust #adventureisoutthere #wildernessnation #justtravel #traveladdict #viajedekombi #kombihome #kombilife #vanlife #rvlife #homeonwheels #homeiswhereyouparkit #instagood #moments at Puerto RΓ­o Tranquilo

The β€˜Carretera Austral’ never ceases to amaze. πŸ™ŒπŸ˜Ž . We were hiking for a few days off grid but now we’re back online! ;) . The road to the far south of Chile is treating us with otherworldly landscapes. Every turn we take provides new highs for us travel addicts. It was right before the weather changed into windy drizzle on the road and snowfall on the Cerro Castillo range on the right. We’ve been lucky weather-wise, it has been more than a month since the last rain, but now we had to prepare for a few hundred kilometers of wet gravel road... . #marinathevan #theslowmovingvan . . . . #chile #patagonia #carreteraaustral #sur #cerrocastillo #lifewelltravelled #traveltogether #instatravel #traveladdicted #igtravel #lovetravel #viajandopelomundo #adventuretime #wildernessnation #wanderlost #adventureisoutthere #vanlife #rvlife #kombilife #kombihome #viajedekombi #homeonwheels #homeiswhereyouparkit #vanlifediaries #moments #instagood at Cerro Castillo Patagonia

Mini kombi family in Puerto Yungay. 😍✌️ . We came down the road from Cochrane to O’Higgins and had to take the ferry at Puerto Yungay where we saw this lovely kombi friend. It was parked with all curtains closed. The owners were nowhere around so we assume they took a boat to somewhere... πŸ€— . #marinathevan #theslowmovingvan . . . . #chile #patagonia #sur #carreteraaustral #travellife #instatravel #travelgram #lifewelltravelled #viajandopelomundo #travelphotography #iphonephotography #kombi #combi #bulli #kombilife #kombihome #viajedekombi #vw #aircooled #vwbusner #kleinbus #vanlife #vanlifediaries #rvlife #homeonwheels #homeiswhereyouparkit #instagood #moments at Puerto Yungay

Solid water in biiiiig quantities. πŸ’§>❄️ . We really wanted to visit some of the ice fields in Chile but hadn’t really researched much about it. Little did we know, there is more than one ice field so we started with the northern one. We found a cheap ferry that took us to Puerto Chacabuco so Marina could relax and recover a little from the unforgiving gravel road that is called Carretera Austral. It took 12h in torrential rain so we couldn’t see much of the hundreds of islands we passed. At the same time it was a very good nap and netflix helped, too. . We arrived on Saturday and it was still raining and raining and raining. Asking around for boats to the San Rafael glaciar, Paula heard from a few people who had just returned that it was awful: 6h in the boat, super cold rain, crazy winds and an almost not visible glaciar. It appeared to be really expensive as well but in the end after checking 10 different weather sites and forecasts, we decided to do it the next day. Forecast said cloudy but no rain. . We woke up to beautiful sunshine at the same time the guides already warned us that the ice field and the laguna has its own microclimate and we only really know the weather when we get closer. And they were right, in the end it was a little cloudy but what amazing views of the glaciar! wooooow, we had never seen anything like it... Even before boarding the zodiac to go closer it was already mind blowing. The colors of the icebergs just floating around the boat was surreal. A few more years and all will be melted and gone... . #marinathevan #theslowmovingvan . . . . #glaciarsanrafael #lagunasanrafael #chile #pataonia #carreteraaustral #glacier #ice #travellife #lifewelltravelled #earthpix #awesomeearth #hikingtheglobe #trekking #wandern #wanderlust #kombilife #viajedekombi #viajandopelomundo #vanlife #landscapephotography #sony #a7ii #travelphotography #earth #goplayoutside #landscapelovers #getoutdoors #nomad at Puerto Chacabuco, Chile

Termas El Sauce. πŸ€—β˜€οΈπŸ” . We went a little to the west and crossed into Chile at paso FutaleufΓΊ. The color of the rivers is a deep turquoise, most of the roads are not paved, and we met only one other person at the border. . Sometimes we just stop to take in the beauty of the nature along the road. Other times we stop and stay. On the way to the the hot springs near La Junta, we parked at this place. Marina’s engine paused for a moment while we looked over the snow capped mountains on the horizon. The sun is very strong here and we get to warm up nicely in our parking spot... . #marinathevan #theslowmovingvan . . . . #lajunta #chile #patagonia #vanlife #rvlife #kombilife #vwkombi #combi #kombihome #vanlifediaries #vanlifeexplorers #vwbusner #viajedekombi #homeiswhereyouparkit #homeonwheels #naestrada #ontheroad #livinginavan #travellife #lifewelltravelled #viajandopelomundo #goplayoutside #thegreatoutdoors #iphonephotography #landscapephotography #hikingtheglobe at Termas Naturales El Sauce

View over Llao Llao. πŸ˜Žβ˜€οΈπŸ” . A quick stop on the way to a small brewery near Bariloche reminded us how easy it can be to forget about the troubles and just sit.
