It was great being back behind the wheel again, captain of my own ship with my beautiful co-pilot at my side. Even though our rental car was tiny and not quite a ship, it was great to be in control again, great to be able to pull over and stop where ever you like, great to be able to drive at any speed of my choice (till the co-pilot threatens to jump out) and great to be able to set your own pace for the day.
By now Inge-Marie had become an expert navigator, when she had a good map of course. But finding good maps in Chile is not as easy as it sounds, especially maps of the wine regions. We tried our luck at sourcing some good tourist maps of the wine regions in Santiago, but neither the tourist information bureaux nor any of the book stores we visited had anything detailed. We searched on line for wine tourism information and found nothing except astronomically expensive private wine tours that were way out of our budget. Bad maps weren't going to stop our wine adventure so we took what we had, and set sail.
