The bus to Bariloche was by far the best bus we have taken. It was 22 hours journey with some really comfy big seats. We got some sandwiches and brownies and a drink about an hour in and we though that was probably all we would get as the bus was quite cheap, but no! At about 7 the steward came round with a bottle of whiskey and gave everyone a glass, then at about 9 we were served up a 3 course meal with wine and beer which was actually pretty nice. We also got a glass of champagne after our meal. Then we got breakfast in the morning. It was amazing! The buses in Brazil are much more expensive than the ones here and you donĀ“t get anything!
So after the scenic bus journey, we arrived in Bariloche, a city sat on a lake, surrounded by snow capped mountains.

It was pretty chilly when we arrived which was exciting after having been hot and humid for so long (it had warmed up by lunchtime though). We got a lift to the hostel from one of the owners which was nice, and then headed into town to have a wander. The town is pretty European, almost like youre in Germany or Austria with all the log/stone buildings- a bit touristy, but it all looks nice. After having a look round some markets and stuff we caught a bus up to a place where you can hike to a waterfall. It took us ages to get there, walking along a ridiculously dusty track- but it was cool in the end. The actual waterfall was pretty crowded so we went exploring further up the river, where there werent any paths and found another 3 tiered waterfall that was empty.
