I had my first taste of Patagonia traveling for ten days. My trip started with a 10 hour $15 overnight bus ride from Santiago to Pucón.
While traveling solo, I met some people at my hostel for some day trips on local buses.

I saw some Araucaria or Monkey Puzzle trees for the first time in a private reserve called Santuario Cañi
