Monday 28th November. By Jodie.
On a ferry for 3 whole days! With scores of other tourists, sleeping in bunk beds, and notoriously bad weather. This could be awesome or awful.
When it’s clear the scenery is wonderful. When it’s cold or windy, the “pub” provides a cosy place to hang out. When we reach the open ocean and experience the infamous 5 meter seas, it’s crazy fun standing out on deck, like a roller coaster ride. The other passengers are typically long term travelers, with interesting stories to share. The facilities are better than expected. And it’s a treat not to have to make any decisions for 3 whole days.
We almost didn’t take this trip on the Navimag but I’m glad we did. There was an element of fate involved: the website to book our flight was down, the bus to Cochamo didn’t arrive, so we had 3 days spare and no transport booked. The weather looked good and the Navimag was scheduled to depart in a few hours. Perfect! Let’s do it!
