  • coastline washed aglow by that morning light and yes we set an alarm to make it

  • happen

  • peninsula has been incredible I almost didn't make it I woke up this morning I

  • was asleep in I'm so glad we came and did the hike and the higher you get the

  • views just become even more spectacular because you can see a part of the beach

  • to the lo vidya which is a place by the water where the sea lions and elephant

  • seals have their babies apparently that's where they teach them how to swim

  • so we want to go see that they told us it's a bit of a walk up the hill

  • anywhere between five to seven kilometres the information seems to vary

  • so you figured let's do it what time of day is it right now Sam I don't know if

  • you can hear that 9:00 in the morning but it feels like midday and he is not

  • joking so if you come here lather up with your sunscreen bring lots of water

  • a hat got a scarf to cover myself as well but yeah we really want to see

  • those sea lions and elephant seals so we are on our way but it feels like we're

  • walking through the desert

  • Oh shade here's the lovely shade we love you shade Emma it looks like we're in

  • the right direction yes gonna be a lighthouse in the

  • distance I can see it right over there over there well hard to see on camera

  • but to the naked eye well we made it we hitched a ride with a kind stranger from

  • the Netherlands who drove us the rest of the way

  • so now we can admire the seals and the sea lion ooh and the water looks

  • beautiful

  • after visiting the sealions we returned to the hotel on foot but it took us way

  • longer since we ended up getting lost under the scorching Sun we somehow

  • missed the turnoff for the hiking trail that cuts back into town so we had to

  • hike along the highway which wasn't a whole lot of fun but we rewarded

  • ourselves with one of the best meals ever at a restaurant called la Cucaracha

  • hello what did you order oh there's one heck of a big burger so I got the

  • Patagonia burger made with lamb meat Wow we even let me let me lift the hood oh look at all the

  • baked cheese on top guys that is a big patty

  • and underneath stuffed with greens and look at this sun dried to me sun-dried

  • tomatoes looks really interesting and that's a big burger a sequel a burger

  • also came with some wedges here you know the burger is so large it looks like he

  • could share it if you wanted to but not that I want to share mine is so good

  • hope that I want to share follow this either

  • so good just the meat the meat is what makes a man Wow done to prevent them

  • excellent but I got to tell you I personally think

  • I ordered bus this time I got the giant ravioli stuffed with prawns in a mussel

  • cream sauce topped off with calamari a la provençale this seafood pasta dish

  • still makes my mouth water

  • alright guys so now we are walking around town we are currently on Avenida

  • de la SOPA de nos that means Avenue of the whales it's the main drag here in

  • puerto piramides it is hot how are you doing it's hot but I mean wowie

  • but it's so colourful there's some fascinating murals there's some really

  • colorful looking cafes and restaurants I think we're gonna pop in maybe get a

  • cool tea or something wonderful I guess a perfect way to spend an afternoon here

  • in this town

  • if you're asking yourself where is everybody right now why is this town so

  • empty so dead it's because everyone is at the beach it's also siesta time it is

  • what time is it it's literally it's in the thick of

  • siesta time it's the 4:30 in the afternoon 4:30

  • it's the hottest time of the day everyone's chilling out either at the

  • beach or sleeping yeah it's awesome because walking down this little stretch

  • of town a few blocks away from the beach we kind of have it all to ourselves

  • love it we walked up and down the main drag looking for a place to have a cool

  • drink but it was quite evident that all the establishments were on siesta time

  • we then returned to the beach where we found a hotel with smoothies on the menu

  • so this seems like a good time as any to give you a tour of the hotel where we've

  • been staying so right now we are at Oceano Patagonia which is an eco hotel

  • right on the beach like quite literally if you look outside our window we have a

  • terrace sand some vegetation and then ocean I can see people swimming in there

  • right now but anyways let's focus on the indoors

  • let's begin the tour first things first I'm going to show you our little office

  • and breakfast nook this is where we've been eating in the mornings with a

  • beautiful setting um and one thing that I really like about this hotel is that

  • they stock your fridge with breakfast supplies so it doesn't matter at what

  • time you wake up once you're hungry and you're ready to eat you can help

  • yourself and we've got some different jams cream cheese dulce de leche

  • orange juice milk they left us eggs fruits butter and then in the warnings

  • they also give us fresh bread artisanal bread so good it's a pleasure to eat

  • right here this is like our living area we have two nice comfy chairs we can sit

  • here enjoy the view read a bit or plan the next leg of our travels as we've

  • been doing we've also got like a little kitchenette area happening you can do

  • some light cooking and prepping so yeah perfect for a self-catered holiday here

  • is the bed large and spacious very very nice oh and one thing I should also

  • mention is that for a lot of the furniture they've used recycled wood so

  • it kind of has rustic feel to it it feels very warm

  • cozy but also modern because we have concrete floors and like these massive

  • windows so yeah it's been good we've enjoyed our safe if you follow me this

  • way I'll show you the bathroom quickly so nice big shower rainforest showerhead

  • we've got our sink lots of counter space toilet bidet we also have quite a bit of

  • storage space but we haven't actually bothered unpacking since we're only here

  • for a couple of days but there you have it our room at Oceano Patagonia yeah it's

  • been good I'm gonna be sad to leave this place tomorrow but there's more of

  • Argentina love to see so onwards we go

  • our plan for the late afternoon had been to rent some kayaks and enjoy some time

  • out on the water once the Sun wasn't quite as strong but it just wasn't meant

  • to be by the time we went down to the beach

  • most of the stands had either closed up shop or they were in the process of

  • packing up their kayaks so that was that you win some you lose some

  • this wasn't our best day in terms of things going to plan but that's just

  • travel for you we hope you still enjoyed this little tour of Puerto Piramides and

  • we'll see you in the next video with another day trip around the peninsula
