Valdivia, Chile - Polarsteps

Another day without knowing how far we would make it. But we continues on the highway Ruta 5 after saying goodbye to our Chilean family and a delicious breakfast! During the day, we discovered nice picnic spots right next to the route and we were motivated by the kilometer marks indicating the distance to Santiago. In the evening, we made it to the little village Los Lagos to buy some food for dinner. A bit outside of the village, we asked at a small cafe right next to the highest if we could pitch out tent next to it. The owner was really friendly, washed some strawberries for us and allowed us to also use the bathrooms. Although the camp spot was quite beautiful, it was a rather noisy night with dogs barking and trucks passing on the highway.
