Bilbao, Spain

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Bilbao after hearing so-so comments from other travelers, but as always I went with an open mind. I got lucky with beautiful weather and ended up meeting some really nice locals, so I have to say it beat my expectations! The Guggenheim is really impressive, both the building and the exhibits I saw. Walking along the river lined with huge green trees you can’t help but be happy. Plenty of outdoor cafes to enjoy. Driving is tricky, the streets are a set of windy one-ways, but I managed! In the end I wished I had more time to spend there.

Punta Arenas, Chile

I am still not sure why I went to Punta Arenas! The city is big and felt lacking in any sense of vibe or culture. Walking around the town many places were shut down (not just for siesta hours), it just felt like there was no life to the place. I visited an old house that was converted into the Museo Regional Braun-Menéndez which was interesting enough. Puerto Natales up north held much more charm for me.
