Zusammenfassung “Galapagos – Osterinsel – Valdivia” in Deutsch am Schluss des Berichts!
The last 36 days the South Pacific was our home. We sailed from Galapagos and Easter Island over 4106 nm to Valdivia. After
the big storm some days ago we are now happy to be in the excellent marina and shipyard Alwoplast with
its extraordinary landscape. Thanks god that our ruder hit by a wale or container made it till here. Soon we will bike to the base of Aconcagua; with its 6960 m, the highest TOP of both Americas. Fist we have to relax … and then we start some
fitness training in the neighbouring mountains, prepare Pachamama to leave her alone and visit some schools and media people
