Hello! Restaurant? It’s there. Ooohh I’m sorry! I thought this was the parking but turns out I just rock up at somebodies house Good morning internet! It is one minute past seven in the morning and welcome back to the channel. As you can probably see from my face I’m leaving a little bit earlier today after the last ride I was thinking I really should leave early so it’s not so hot because today I am riding to Mendoza I’ll show you on the map I am now here in Malargue in Argentina and today I’m going straight to Mendoza but this little bit on the map is still 330 kilometers so it’s still quite a significant ride although I do believe that this time round everything is paved so it should be a quick ride so I hope to arrive in Mendoza relatively early because today is Christmas or today is Christmas Eve and I’ve been riding for the last 5 days straight. Or this will be the fifth day in a row that I’m riding because I just really wanted to make it to a bigger place for Christmas to celebrate it there so I can really notice that I’m getting quite tired of riding every day. I just really need a break, so that’s why I thought okay, come on, last day then I’m in Mendoza and then I’m going to take a few days rest and also make all the videos because I have not made the videos yet from these days riding that is the plan. I bought breakfast yesterday. Some yoghurt and muesli and stuff and I put it inside the hostel over there in the fridge. And I asked them, is the door open also early in the morning so I can grab it They said: yeah the door is always open. So it’s not. So I couldn’t get my breakfast. I also had some fruit I bought some fruit which I had in my room, so I had that but yeah, not much food, but anyway, it doesn’t matter let’s go and then I’ll see if I eat something along the way or just go straight to Mendoza and have big lunch or something I’m going to grab my jacket and then go So I just covered 200 kilometers and this is the first village, town that I see I’m going to see if I can eat something here right now, I’m really quite hungry Is this not the restaurant? Hello! Restaurant? It’s there Oooh I’m sorry! It’s okay I thought this was the parking but it turns out I just rock up at somebodies house Merry Christmas! Enjoy your time in Mendoza Yeah Merry Christmas to you too It doesn’t feel like Christmas when it’s so hot right? yeah Okay, ciao! Good luck, ride safe! Well, I had my breakfast and quite cool, I met this guy, Spencer, from Canada and he cycled all the way from Cartagena, Colombia to here and he is on his way to Ushuaia incredible and he from Colombia to here what did he say, 11 no he left in February yeah, in like 10 months really impressive well, as you can see by the traffic and by how big this road is, I’m very close to Mendoza it’s only 10 kilometers to go my GoPro was overheating in the last ride that also happened and then it shuts down so I just let it cool off a bit and now it’s working again so let’s ride into Mendoza find a place no I think I said let’s find a place in Mendoza but actually in this case I made a reservation just because of Christmas look at those tyres hello it’s somewhere here, ah here it is hostel Lagares There is a button There You have to do it together Like this I am sweating a little bit I put Dhanno right here Kind of half in the entrance and half not I took all the luggage off and it just fits, it was a bit of a manoeuvring because here there is a small slope so I put her here. She is a little bit on the street but pretty safe So this is the hostel where I’m staying Close this one So here I’m going to celebrate Christmas they have a kitchen where the breakfast will be then a common room and then, my room, is over here I am here! so, a tiny little room with a huge bed, so perfect let’s close this one man I am sweating I am so glad that I left early this morning I mean the beginning of the ride, the first 200 kilometers was really doable, it was just the last bit was really quite hot getting into the city but other than that, fine ride not too exciting but I’m just really happy to be here. Fifth day riding in a row, I am absolutely shattered so I am just going to spend Christmas here I already met some other travellers, backpackers so I am sure I’ll meet some people to have a dinner together or something like that which is nice so I think I’m going to take a shower now so that was it for today, I hope you liked this video if you did, please give me a big thumbs up and subscribe down below and then I’ll see you in the next video!
