Route 3 is the long highway that goes from Buenos Aires all the way south to Ushuaia (the southernest city in the world). Travelling on our full Kumuka bus/truck we travelled countless hours over a week to get to the end of the world, stopping off at some filthy campsites and bush camps (and a few good ones as well). This trip is a story in itself where travelling 12 hour days puts me to sleep as well as wakes me up with all the bumps and crazy Argentinian drivers overtaking on blind corners. Chess, listening to music and eating icecreams at every trucker stop was my usual daily routine and probably will continue to be until the end of the trip. We stopped for 2 nights in Puerto Madryn where we did a day trip on a bus and boat and saw sea lions, different bird species, penguins and awesome views of the bay area which was fantasic. As we are camping for the next few weeks, we have cooking and cleaning duties as there are 24 of us. Cooking food for 24 people can turn out to be an absolute disater and the rice i tried to make one night did turn out that way... oops. The views out the window are very picturesque heading into Pategonia however they havn´t changed much in the week heading south. Flat, grass, shrubs, sky and clouds, thats it. No trees, no mountains, no water... yet.
I cant wait to hit Pategonia and start doing some fun activities. Glaciers, volcanos, mountains, wildlife, multiple day treks and differnt towns to explore. (i can finally work off the icecreams!)
