Tagebuch auf Deutsch VIII

Hier der 8.Teil des Tagebuchs auf Deutsch. Viel Spaß!

Fr 19.2.2016 Punta Ninfas and Punta Lomo

Die Sonne strahlt wieder und ich entschließe mich, noch einen Tag hier im Hostel zu bleiben und einen Tagesausflug nach Punta Ninfas zu machen. Leider entpuppt sich die Fahrt dorthin als extrem eintönig, da es 70km nur geradeaus geht. Außer ein paar die Fahrbahn kreuzenden Schafen und Pferden, die zugegeben wunderschön sind, passiert nichts Aufregendes. Am Ende werde ich jedoch mit einem tiefblauen Meer und absoluter Einsamkeit belohnt.

border experiences

Sat 13.2.2016

I stand up very early to reach the ferry back to Punta Arenas. Everything is packed and my last egg is boiled because I can’t take it over the border to Chile. The sun is shining at 8°C and I’m fighting with the wind. Reaching the Argentinean border at 10 a.m. I’m in Chile at 10.30 a.m. giving me enough time. But my GPS is not working anymore. It re-boots all the time. Not important for now because I know the way and following Alex’ and Heinz’ hint I turn right 60km ahead of Porvenir into a nice small road which is open only in summer time. It goes up and has bends, too. But it is getting damned cold (4.5°C). It’s time to reach warmer areas. Even though I don’t know if I really like the 40°C in Buenos Aires.
After taking out the SD-Card and re-booting my Garmin works again. Good news. Earlier than expected we reached Pta Arenas at 4.15 and immediately I drive to Alejandro for my new tire. He says if I leave it there I can pick it up at 6 p.m. because he has to wash the bike completely before it can enter the hall. Then I asked him just to take the back tire and I take it off.

Tierra del Fuego

Tue 9.2.2016

I stand up very early and I’m in time at the harbor. And who was already there when I arrived: Isi. They don’t have as well a ticket and so I looked for Alex who already queues. We’re lucky and got tickets for today! And the price is fair: $ 11.300 (€ 16,-).

Punta Arenas and excursion to Isla Magdalena and Marta

After an endless search for a dealer who has tires for my motorbike I finally found one in a little street who has “my” Heidenau available for $154.000 (€ 200,-) – only the rear tire. Then I visited the Museo of Magallanes that contains interior of that time.

National Park Torres del Paine

After a lot of issues with the flat tire (many tries were not successful) we finally ended up in a nice Cabaña in La Turia where Diego, who came by on his way to his home, was so nice to offer it for free (!) and brought Alex back with a tire that worked at least for some kilometers. After border crossing, which was very easy again, he had again a flat tire 5km ahead of Puerto Natales. We were looking for a hostel and luckily got one with 3 beds available. An endless search for a new tube ended up in a still too small one. But he was able to bring the motorbike to the hostel. Then we said goodbye because they want to go to Torres del Paine by bus for a 5-days trip while I’m going by motorbike for day trips.

Already the way to the national park was nice. And the park itself is indescribable. I found a great camp ground in the middle of the park which was the best starting point for the 3 days.
