Punta Arenas was a bit of a weird time, I really enjoyed my time there but not for the city itself, but the hostel I was at and the people within. I stayed at Entre Vientos which is on the outskirts of town, but it had amazing ocean views, a great kitchen and lots of good people which made it a fantastic four nights. I arrived late in the arvo on Christmas Eve, hoping that there would be a group I cook a dinner with. There was, in fact, a group but even better they were already cooking and they had extras. I brought some extra wine to the party (can't show up emptyhanded of course) and the eight of us had a great night. Most of us had met only that day! No photos, was too busy having fun. Side note - I need to stop falling for Europeans, my heart can't take seeing a someone for a few days/weeks then separating, never to be seen again! I was in Punta Arenas for four nights as I needed to sort out two tyres and change the front sprocket back to the 16 tooth to get some extra speed. The Zona Franca had the tyres for almost the same price, if not cheaper than back home. I ended up with a road tyre for the front but its no issue as there's only 100km of gravel left for the whole trip. I met another overlander at the hostel who also needed work done - so we teamed up to search for parts. For working on the bike in Punta Arenas I can't recommend highly enough the crew at La Guarida. Its a motocafe with a super lovely owner, a bit of a hub for the local moto scene. Took the rite of passage on the ferry - a fairly boring two hour trip. Grey and rainy which is classic Patagonia. Today I rode to Ushuaia. I can't believe it. I did it! I rode all the way to Ushuaia, Argentina! After 27,434 km and 165 days I've arrived at the southernmost city in the world after starting in Los Angeles, USA. Also, nobody ever mentions the last 50km of the ride includes some awesome twisties through the mountains, it was a super nice surprise after thousands of km's of straight roads! I'm off for a steak and beer.. more thoughts later.
