End of the Line - Travelling Wilburys

San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina

Last stop on the Argentinian leg is San Carlos de Bariloche in the Argentinian Lake District. We had two days of perfect weather in El Calafate, and have been lucky with another three great days here. It´s absolutely beautiful, and much as it pains me to say it, is probably more impressive than the English Lake District. The mountains are bigger and the lakes are deep blue and very clear. We did a great bike ride round the Circuito Chico - a 25km circuit that offers some fantastic views over the lakes, and also climbed up Cerro Lopez which was a tough climb but worth it for the views from the top.

Argentina has been great - Buenos Aires is a vibrant, cultured city, and the natural and diverse beauty of the glaciers, the Lake District and the Iguazu Falls have got to make it one of the most naturally beautiful countries in the world. And the steaks have been great too! It´s almost enough to make you forgive the Falklands and the Hand of God. But not quite.
