´Training is nearly over´

Well i´m back in Pucon. One of the nicest towns in Chile. At the base of Villarica volcano and a holiday spot for the rich, it is a really lovely and picturesque town. The passengers are all out climbing the volcano today and it just brings reminders of when I climbed it, swearing every step and having such awesome fun on the way down.
We arrived in town yesterday afternoon after 4 days on the Navimag. The Navimag is a cargo ferry that travels through the Chilean fjords. Some hints if you ever want to go on the Navimag.....take plenty of snacks, drinks and books, be prepared to go a little stir crazy, take sea sickness tablets, stay away from Marcello on the dance floor (trust me on this one) and dance like crazy after BINGO night.
The Pax and I all survived in one piece and even the 3-4 metre waves didn´t make me feel seasick. I feel pretty hard core now. Although the trip back down in a month may have me thinking otherwise.
So only 3 days till Santiago and then hopefully onto Montevideo to have 2 weeks of down time and spanish lessons.
Some shout outs....
.....Aunty Elvrae, thanks for the well wishes. Hope you start feeling better soon.
.....Sam and Mick, Congratulations on the birth of Oliver. He is very cute. Enjoy every second.
.....Mez and Matt, the house looks great.
Would love to hear news from home so don´t be shy.
