When the Stars Align

When we headed to the south of Chile, we flew into Balmaceda (close to Coyhaique) and wanted to get a bus to start our Cerro Castillo trek the very next day.  But, the bus was full so we had to wait an extra day and then get the bus the day after.

Oh, we’ve missed a day of our holiday, was our first thought.  But, sometimes the stars align, and you gain an extra experience.

We asked our friends, who we were staying with, what we could do in the area.  And, they told us about Bahia Acantilada. We set off, not knowing what to expect, and finding a place of real beauty.  Where actually, the clouds and the rain made it that extra bit special.

When did they align for you?

  1. I always get worried when things don’t happen exactly like it planned on trips, but then I feel like these types of experiences happen that never would have happened in the first place if your plans didn’t change! Bahia Acantilada looks absolutely beautiful and the fog makes it look totally unreal!

  2. This place looks like it got straight out of a movie. I tend to prefer sunny days but, in this case, I see why fog and drizzle worked perfectly. #WanderlustWednesday

  3. Beautiful post! Sorry that the bus was full and that it threw off your plans, but like you said, sometimes everything happens for a reason! Although slightly gloomy, this place looks so beautiful! The gloom is just all part of it 😀
