One of those days…

We were desperate for some internet and I woke up with a stomach bug. We thought we could just head to the next town and find a place. It’s never that simple.

We drove up the coast until the road ended. Then, we turned around and detoured inland for another few slow hours on the dirt.

It was a beautiful drive, though I wasn’t really enjoying it and certainly not taking many photos. Wildflowers blanketed the countryside and entire fields were yellow, red or blue. By lunchtime, I’d developed a fever.

A bit of a rough travel day – I guess they can’t all be good.

We finally made it to Pichilemu, a cool surfing town. And just as we pulled into some cabanas near the beach, I started feeling better. Funny how that works.

    there always seems to be one of those days per month for us.

    We just met a cool german couple in Haunchaco. They are heading south in a bus. I gave them your website and they are gonna keep an eye out for you. They were really cool. Here is their blog. I’m sure you’re fluent in German. My is rusty as it is my 5th language. HA!

    Isn’t it sooooo true that it’s never that simple…. Whenever the thought crosses your mind that you’ll just stop into a city/town and find what you need… you find yourself 5 hours later, frustrated and still in search of it 🙂

    Love keeping up with your stories guys!
