"The Love Boat, First Part - La Croisiere s'amuse 1" Región Aisén del General Carlos Ibáñez del Campo by Maillekeul

What we must say is that sailing is nice, even more in a cargo ! We were crazy to put our money in this cargo trip across Patagonia seas, from Puerto Montt to Puerto Natales. So, we started in the Region of Aisen del General Carlos Ibañez el Campo (not that short !) and finished in the Region of Magallanes (the one and only). And I think that we fed our eyes more than correctly !

Rien a dire, c'est bien le bateau, encore plus quand c'est un cargo ! On a fait une folie en s'offrant une "croisiere" (facon de parler, dans un bateau bourre a craquer de remorques en tout genre) partant de Puerto Montt et arrivant a Puerto Natales. Le voyage nous fera traverser les Regions Aisen del General Carlos Ibañez el Campo (il fallait le dire) et de Magallanes, sur les rives du Sud-Ouest (du Chili, hein, y a pas de Toulousains, ici !)... On comptait en prendre plein les yeux... Ce fut reussi !

The view from our cabin.... At the beginning, we were to stay in a dorm, but, eventually, the crew allowed us to enjoy this little 4-places room (with a welsh couple)... But, as there were very few people on board, I am sure that they wouldn't have let us sleep in a sort of death raw ! You can see the trucks
on the deck and this is also a nice landscape...

La vue depuis notre cabine : en effet, on a eu la chance d'etre sur-classe... A la base, on aurait du dormir dans des sortes de couchettes-couloir, et finalement, on a herite d'une petite chambrette, en compagnie d'un couple de gallois (un peu anglais, les Gallois, pas super cosants, dans le genre...). Bon, faut dire que compte tenu du peu de monde sur le navire, ils allaient pas nous laisser dormir dans les bas-fonds...
Sur le pont, donc, les toitures de remorques s'enchainent et ca, c'est beau aussi...

Maillekeul, dressed to fight the cold, turns his back to the magnificent chileans fjords...

Le Maillekeul, en tenu de combat contre le froid, fait dos aux magnifiques fjords chiliens...
