There were a few sights to see on the way, my favourite being the crazy curvy bridge that we drove over. I couldnt work out if it was designed to be so retarded or if it collapsed in at some point, but it was fun and functional. After this we drove passed bikini beach, which is where all the celebrities hang out in summertime and another popular stop along the coastline. It seemed to be a pretty up and coming place to be seen, along with our next stop, the smaller, more quiet town of Jose Ignacio
We were getting hungry so thought that this would be a great place to have lunch. We walked down to the beach with our previously prepared picnic, found a nice patch of sand near the lighthouse. It was a really cool little place and an unexpected stop on our journey. The freedom of having a car had almost already sold me on the idea.
We got back in car and kept driving to our next stop, la paloma about an hour and a half further up the coast. We got to an area on the coastline that google maps said was all good, but there was a spit where the road stopped so we had to drive back about another 30 minutes over the shittest road in the world to drive around a lagoon!.
We arrived and soon realised that there wasnt much to do besides checkin out the lighthouse so we did that and then detoured passed the skatepark to watch some kids skatin around. We had heard there wasn't much by ways of amenities or supermarkets in la pedrera so we topped up on groceries before heading on.
We then kicked on to la pedrera
Some guy got out of his car as i was looking for the hostel and started raising his voice at me. I responded in my calmest spanish and explained what was going on. He told me the hostel was the driveway next door but it was closed, as was every other hostel in town. We had no choice but to head back to la paloma.We hacked some wifi and booked a place which was expensive as there was literally nothing else open. There was a wedding over the road and a lot of the guests were staying here which didnt help the price but it turned out to be nice.
