Atacama – Trail through the desert mountains

Here we have an fabulous recommendation for bicycle riders, mountainbike fans and off road tourers from the end of the world. While we traveled through Chile from north to south we had a break in San Pedro de Atacama. It´s a good spot to chill in the hot climate, as well you can do a lot of outdoor activities. Like crossing a part of the desert by mountain bike for example.

Bore Namazu Tattoos – Arica

In Arica on the northern Pacific Coast we made a little stop to do some surfing. The beaches and the waves are quite nice for several month. Next to the harbor we passed the Tattoo-Studio of the artist Bore, who showed us the shop and gave one of our colleagues an ear-piercing-plug for free. So we thought why not write an article about the tattoo studio. In the link you will find an interview with Bore and a video of a tattoo session and his shop.

Valparaiso – Welcome to Hostal Voyage

During our journey in Chile we made a stop in Valparaiso and could stay in the most interessting Hostel of the city: Hostel Voyage. It´s much nicer to stay at a friends´ place than in a hotel room. A lot of people prefer therefore couchsurfing, it´s a cheaper and as well much more personal way to travel. And at the doors of Hostel Voyage we were welcomed exactly that way. After riding the whole night in a horrible bus through half of the country and searching for over two hours for a place to stay – out of 20 hostels really nobody opened – we finally have been greeted at this nice lodge.

La Serena – Streetart and Inauguration of a Masterpiece

Another very cool surfers spot in Chile is the second biggest city in the country: La Serena. Here the Elqui-Valley is just around the corner, it´s one of the main producing areas for the Chilenian national drink Pisco. It´s a very nice drink, you can get in Germany as well, but for sure not comparable to the one you can get there at the vineyards. The city is really nice, with the historic center built in the colonial style and if you arrive from the north it is quite pleasant to arrive at this alive and green place after a lot of ghosttowns in the Atacama desert, who remind on the salpeter mining period.

Atacama –  Sandboarding Adventure

We recorded some of our more or less successful tryings. It´s definitly harder than it looks, especially if you are not used to be on a board at all. But we are very used to stand on boards. But in the snow. So it´s quite interesting, a lot of little factors change, and it´s a completely different element. Sand makes your board slower and you have to move quite different to get speed, as well you have to bend much more and try to use uge weight to get forward less than use it for making breaks. Actually you should try to slow down in any way. Be happy when you reached some speed!

Santiago – City Tours

Maybe you know the series. Where is Wally? It was or still is an animated series about a strange odd guy with some glasses, a bobble cap and a red-white-striped t-shirt. This guy is always somewhere hidden in the series and you have to find him. And then you have to find out other stuff together with him. It´s exactly this little gag what the guys from “Tours 4 Tips” from Santiago de Chile used for their own undertaking.
