I, Shantamurti( Shark) and my wife, Jennifer(Jenni) have been traveling ever since we met for the first time. Started with Lyon in France, we started traveling Europe and South America and now India. One of the best trips we had has to be Chile. Traveling Chile has been the most intriguing and fun I would say. The best part of Chile according to me is the Andes. Hey there, readers Europe is overrated. Chile is quite chilling, this place we visited in June this year is called the Volcano Osorno. It is an active volcano in the Andes range with a height of 3000 meters. We started from Puerto Varas in the South of Chile in the morning on a rural bus with beautiful country music(not John Denver haha). We reached a lake and we finally got the first sight of this amazing volcano from distance, What you will see attached is an amateur attempt from me to click this majestic view.

My wife seems happy haha
I tried to click the volcano with my wife but failed. With a 55-250mm lens, I was not able to get the peak and my wife both to fit the photo. Although she seems happy in the photo, she got angry when she saw what I clicked. Do not try these photography stunts at home, you might end up with a fight with your wife. And always mention that she is more beautiful than the freaking Volcano. The temperature outside was around -3C so she calmed down quick haha.
We reached the Volcano!!!!!!!
After 30 mins of travel on the bus, we finally reached our desired destination. We got out of the bus, and we could see the peak near and clear. But the weather was not on our side for 2 hours. It was -14 degrees outside with a wind speed of 80kmph. Quite a blizzard it was. But it was all good as we sat warm in a cafe there( the only cafe) with our cup of mochaccino. Freezing outside, warm inside, a cup of coffee with your love, what more do you need......
Weather got better, time to step out of the cafe..........
After what you call a chilling blizzard, the weather was clear for us to make the climb to the peak. And definitely, try some snow sports.
-14 degrees, yet I gotta show off....
Damn, it was cold, super cold. But I wanted a Hollywood click with the Volcano and the Lake. The view you get can be cherished for a lifetime.
My wife wasn't that brave XDDDDD
My wife unlike me was completely clothed and warm and that's why the smirk on her face. I was just kidding her smile is completely justified as she is experiencing something heavenly. And to y'all atheists reading this post, heaven exits ok? hahah
Time to return...... 🙁
Unfortunately, we cannot stay there forever. So I clicked this with a sad face, one last time cherishing the beauty of her majesty. Aurevoir Osorno, see you next time. To y'all travelers looking for adventure come to Chile and definitely visit this gem of a place. Again I say, Europe is overrated. PS.- Mont Blanc was nothing special.
