ImageIdea to organize trip to South America we had since I’ve started work in Lufthansa. At the beginning we thought about Ecuador or Venezuela but instable political situation and threat of tropical diseases cause we chose country less exotic but definitely more safe for travelers.
Glimpse on geographical atlas gives us idea what we can expect. Chile is 4 thousand kilometers long and 350 wide. There are several climate zones (from place where human never record of rain to places where raining everyday), huge diversity of animal and plant life. For sure everyone finds something interesting.

Image Even first part of journey seems interesting. We have never travel so long with Alicja to starting point. 4h from Gdansk to Warsaw after 2h to Frankfurt, 17h to Santiago de Chile…

When you sum all time it is 31h enroute (I’ve skipped time of waiting). Alicja was brave even during 17h flight to Santiago. Starting point for us was Altiplano – high plateau on Bolivia – Chile border.

San Pedro is not very interesting city and that is why we climbed to neighbored hills. We could see two majestic volcanos.
