Cool2 Do you know Quintay? It s in Chile .Let me share some pics.

Do you know what and where is Quintay.
It s a little Chilean coastal village.
Today (may 12) is a especial day for my wife. So, we decided to ride our Honda Transalp, and reach this place.
So now, let me share with you some pics and words of this trip.
We left Viña del Mar , it was cloudy but warm, or at least not cold.



we rode the coastal range, that means the road was plenty of curves , ups and down.


here our Transalp and my wife Flor


my riding


As Quintay was ever a fishing village , we found at our arrival a fish boat


In here Quintay Bay






unlikely , in the past there was a whale industry. Today there is only some of the building




And there is 2 kms away a beatiful beach, where we stopped and took some pics







Flor and me


also it s used by surfer





From Quinaty , me moved toward the central valley, we wanted to reach Casablanca village, and on the way we saw somes wineyards, where are produced some of our good wine...






Finally some pics in Casablanca town, main square and church








And that `s all.
Hope you have enjoyed.
Bye

Thank you for sharing - beautiful area

My only experience in Chile was a business trip into Santiago. I didn't see any of your beautiful country but would love to go back and ride it top to bottom. I see so many ride reports through your country and they show such a diversity of climate, people and conditions.

Thanks again for sharing these pictures with us. Congrats on having a wife who likes to ride with you. That makes riding so much more enjoyable.

Having spent time south of Puerto Montt around Hornipen, Chile you report brings back nice memories of your great country. Would love to ride my GS there. Another thing I like about Chile is that your flag is very similar to ours here in Texas.

Tu informe es muy bueno . Gracias por compartirlo.

Me gusta tu pais super mucho y le extraño. No he estado alla con un moto pero un día en el futuro, ojala!

Your report is great. Thanks for sharing it. I like your country a lot and I miss it. I haven't been there with a bike but one day in the future with luck.
