Escapism and a little romantic adventure in a Chilean natural park
12 March 2011 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Carla, 37, and her husband are traveling in their car to a natural park in Chile. They encounter some other tourists who show their ridiculous behavior. After a dispute, the husband drives away, leaving her back. Now she has to find their own way back. Soon she learns to know another hiker, Ulrik, a medicine student from Norway, the dream country of the Latinos. He has left Santiago to enjoy nature, too. In his rucksack, he carries a tent. After some hesitation, he brings her to sleep in the tent, too. At first the relationship remains offish, but mutual attraction cannot be stopped in the course of their little adventures in the natural park.

Maybe more rewarding than this travel mate and slightly romantic story is the pinpointing of natural life in that Chilean forest in a temperate climate.
