Our special stay in Bariloche continued to be filled with more adventures. For those of you just joining us now, check out Bariloche, part one – Revenge of the nerds. Our next day trip we planned was to visit the Cerro Otto lookout point which was accessible via chairlift or for those stupid enough, by foot. Never ones to turn down a challenge, we opted for the latter. And a challenge it was. 2 kms of a steep sandy trail that ever seemed to end. Hot and flustered,
After our mini trek we were quite exhausted and our intention to walk around Lago Gutierrez turned into a brief pit stop where we grabbed a snack
And headed back to town where we spent the rest of the day planning and organising buses, hostels and our whitewater rafting trip the next day!!!
Gear on and we were ready to take on Rio Manso.. Josh excited and me.. eek.. not so.
From the very first rapid Josh was right in there…
When we all sat down at the end to watch the videos which the photographer had taken, my sneaky fall into the safety of the inside of the boat was all revealed and my secret was out. Was a great day, met some great people, conquered the nerves and definitely felt a good sense of accomplishment at the end!
Was a fun adrenaline-lifting way to end our stay in Bariloche. Well that is it for now but if you missed it, check out Josh’s thoughts on traveling with me, quite a laugh.
