I learnt today that the Three Lakes Crossing (Puerto Varas to Barlioche (vice versa) is not operating at present. So I may have to change my plans travelling to Pucon. My alternative route maybe via San Martin de los Andes (the seven lakes region). However, I will probably decide when I get there what route I will take, and if the crossing is in operation. Final payment for the trip is due a week on Friday and now began saving up for my big trip out! yay! Another update later.... read more

Just paid off my Spanish course, accommodation and Recreational package (including 1 day excursions and 2 half day excursions) for when I am in Pucon with Cactus Languages.

Just reserved my hostel accommodation for Barlioche and Mendoza. I booked rooms as I want my privacy and the rates were reasonable. The total cost of my hostel accommodation on this trip is how much I would pay for 3 nights for a room in a UK hostel! Half the cost! I am wating to receive information about booking the lakes crossing from Barlioche to Puerto Varas and when I can, I will be booking this along with odd nights' accommodation here and there! I wish the 4 months wait for this trip arrives now:) Another update later......... read more
