After nearly eight weeks in the vast nature and small towns of Patagonia, we're back in the big city. It's good fun but the bustle and rush is taking some getting used to. This time last month we were here, in the Frances Valley of Torres Del Paine, with not a sound but the wind and rushing water. We'll be back one day, Patagonia.
Love wine? #VisitChile 🍷 Boca Nariz wine bar has nearly 400 bottles to choose from, a sweet subterranean wine cellar & awesome food. Or you can spend $3 at your local botillería and get a damn good bottle of wine (No, this isn't sponsored, we just ❤️ vino!) What's your favorite country for wine?
Punta de Lobos, Chile, is more than just a surf spot, the place is also home to a unique coastal ecosystem and traditional fishing community. The powerful big wave break was approved as a World Surfing Reserve in 2013 after surfer Ramon Navarro teamed up with Save the Waves to protect the spot from unwanted coastal development.
Based on 20 years of wave and wind data, Gaia figured out that January, February and March were the best time to go surfing Punta de Lobos.
During those 3 months, the spot usually receives a solid head high ground swell with consistent SW cross-offshore winds
Congrats to @stwcoalition @surfnavarro @lobosporsiempre for fighting to preserve this amazing spot !
