  • they're now coming it's not like in the  videos where you sing and they come running  

  • maybe they don't like my song oh my  gosh they're running away if anything  

  • so yeah we are currently driving to villa alpina  argentina it's 18 kilometers off the paved road  

  • we've been driving for a while we're not quite  sure how close we are because the dirt roads  

  • force you to go a lot slower but yeah we just keep  stopping along the road wherever there's a nice  

  • lookout wherever we encounter cows and horses  and yeah i think we're at least halfway there

  • do

  • well hello hello guys and welcome to villa  alpina the name it means alpine village yeah  

  • quite accurate i used to say we had to drive  18 kilometers on dirt roads to get here so yeah  

  • quite isolated it's not too far from where we're  staying in terms of kilometers but uh the road it  

  • took a long time yeah you gotta take it easy yeah  probably close to 40 minutes just like winding  

  • through the mountains yeah but it looks likebeautiful quiet little village exactly a small a  

  • small population but a beautiful setting fantastic  place to go hiking to just wander around the town  

  • to experience uh you know farm animals too i mean  there's horses there's houses there's cows there's  

  • mules i think i've seen some sheep as well goats  goats i should say yeah and so it's uh it's just  

  • a fantastic place to be visiting especially if you  like kind of like tranquil destinations with a lot  

  • of nature and yeah we can't wait to explore the  little town and also maybe to do a little hike and  

  • we should also talk about what we did yesterday  we did a little bit of filming yeah just a little  

  • bit yesterday was mostly about errands but aside  from that we also visited the town of los reyes  

  • where there is a river that runs through the town  and it was the perfect place to visit yesterday  

  • because it was so hot the most refreshing place to  just dip your feet in we just rolled up our pants  

  • kicked off our shoes thank you considering  this is just the start of spring the the  

  • temperature of the river was reasonable like  you could actually you could go swimming and  

  • in the summer you would definitely go swimming to  cool off yeah and so yeah we've got a beautiful  

  • day there's not going to be any rain it's just  a little bit of cloud lots of sun and we plan  

  • to you know check this place out and also hope  we hope to visit some other spots nearby as well

  • so

  • um

  • so this town is more of a place that you come to  experience it doesn't have tourist attractions per  

  • se but one of them is hiking to el champaqui which  is a six to eight hour hike we actually saw quite  

  • a few vans a drive into town and like unload  a bunch of hikers and then they're gonna make  

  • their way up the mountain so that's one thing that  you can do here and then there's also a river that  

  • runs through the town so right now we're walking  down to the river because we feel like we need to  

  • cool down just a little bit so it's all downhill  which has been relatively easy but on the way back  

  • i have a feeling it's gonna bebit harder it's all steep in the sun

  • well guys i can tell you that my hiking boots are  waterproof i don't feel the water on my socks or  

  • toes good purchase yeah mine are not okay mine  are sandals and you're you're yours are perfect  

  • for this but definitely not waterproof my feet are  waterproof that's good enough for me flippers so  

  • sam what have you learned about this town what can  you tell us well i can tell you a few different  

  • things firstly locals are extremely friendly  we've had about two or three conversations well  

  • you and your dad have with locals in spanish  and um i'm ready to tell you the grand total  

  • of the sprawling metropolis are you ready for  it i'm ready for it three zero thirty people  

  • it's incredible for anyone who likes nature peace  

  • tranquility and a little bit of elbow room  from your neighbors yeah you can't beat villa  

  • alpina argentina and there's a lot to do here  so you take this little serpentine path and  

  • you come down to the river and there's alsolittle footbridge you can walk across too so  

  • so far and the impressions of this little  town have been extremely favorable i mean  

  • to visit it on a nice beautiful day like this  has been you know nothing short of ideal and um  

  • yeah man like what uh what a little hidden gem out  here in the sierras of cordoba argentina for sure

  • really nice town but they don't really  have any restaurants like it's so small  

  • 30 inhabitants it's not set up for lots of  tourism like most of the people who go there
