Hello Fall?…

IMG_20180104_103705_486
Yes, this is what Fall looks like in Quillota, Chile!

…So…when I normally think about Fall, I think about:
Leaves falling
-Sweater weather
-Time to get ready for snow…and Christmas…

Well, that’s not the case for me this Fall because it’s Fall right now in Chile, and I can’t think about any of those things. Instead, I’m thinking about: going swimming, maybe getting ice cream, just staring at the sun and being in awe (and confused) about this weather...

. . .

Yup, that’s right. It’s fall here in Chile and the lowest temperature is 10°C (in the middle of the night). During the day, it can still reach at least 25°C and drop to 15°C.

. . .

But, temperatures aside. The other reason I’m writing this post is because it’s the end of March and stores are having sales on summer clothes, people are actually starting to wear jackets, kids are just starting school, the weather is dropping (compared to last month).
In my mind, everything that normally happens in September is happening now, in march. And, in a way, it seems normal because I’ve been here all summer anyway, so I can adapt to it easily. It took me all summer to adapt to the weather in January that now it kinda just seems normal. But, when I think about the date, it seems so weird because my mind is not used to saying: “happy first day of fall” at the end of March. But, on the plus side, I can buy summer clothes here on sale for summer when I get back home.

Anyways, after living here during New Year’s and the first day of Fall, my perspective changed because the seasons being flipped made me start thinking:
For one, I find it so fascinating that some people say it’s a small world out there because literally a 10 hour plane ride (that’s a pretty long plane ride) from you (below the equator) there are people starting school or work, when you are getting ready to go on vacation. That’s evidence that it’s really not such a small world after all. We all live on the same planet, but it’s a pretty big planet with different countries and cultures.

Seriously though, we all live in different places on this planet, and we all adapt to different lifestyles based on the seasons of our country during a time in the year.
The people in the world aren’t so different (we are still all human), but the world is so big and different, which gives us something interesting to learn about when we travel.
Some people are shoveling snow while others are turning on all their fans.
Some people are coming home from vacation while others are packing for vacation.
Some people are preparing for Spring while others are raking leaves.

This is one of the main reasons why I love traveling so much;
To get a different perspective on things in life because sometimes when you look at something familiar in a different place, you can see the importance and impact it can actually have, which will changed your perspective about that things.

People are the same, but the cultures are what makes us different!

The world is round after all; one side is different than the other. Your perspective is right for your side of the world.

A rollercoaster year!

Hold up!
Wait!
Before I even start to talk about this past year, I just have to say that in the beginning of this year I would have never imagined being here in Chile for New Year’s.
That’s just crazy!

. . .

I’ll admit, this year has had it’s down/low moments, but in general, 2017 has been an amazing year.
I’ve accomplished so many things that I am proud to say that I’ve accomplished.
Like: 

  • Going to Belize!
  • Graduating college!
  • Growing this blog! (Thank You)
  • Working at a great hotel!
  • Just living life!
  • And, now, living in Chile!

Honestly, this year has been so crazy that I don’t even want to make any resolutions or a bucket list for next year because I didn’t make one this year, yet I’ve accomplished so much. 

. . .

I still can’t believe today is the last day of 2017.
So much can happen in 365, and you don’t even realize it until it’s all done.
And, if 2017 wasn’t your year, you have another 365 days to change that, with another great year ahead!

. . .

Here’s to 2018!

Quillota, Chile


Thank you so much for reading my blog this past year, and, remember to always continue to:

Summer…

Finally, my favorite season has arrived!

. . .

Summer is my favorite season for so many different reason… the main one being; the sun.
And then there’s; travel because summer is a good time to travel (unless you’re trying to escape snow, then, don’t travel to a place with reversed seasons).
And, the final reason is; it’s finally time to get out and enjoy the outdoors and the sun and the heat and nature and everything you can do in summer that you can’t do in winter.
Do I ever love summer! (comment down below with your favorite part of summer or your favorite season)

. . .

Although, most of the trips I take tend to be during the summer, I have done some (like 2) trips in the fall and winter: And, let me just say, if I could live somewhere with summer weather all year round, I would in a heartbeat! (like this post if you would too)

. . .

Anyways… On to some exciting news.

I have a special promo code for YOU (yes You reading this) to try out this great app.
It’s a great travel workout app (it’s even good if you don’t travel and just live a busy life). It’s like having a personal trainer on your phone.
I like this app because when you travel; you are constantly trying new foods, just being lazy, enjoying your new & amazing adventures… But this app helps you remember to keep your body healthy while still enjoying your trip (& to be honest, when I travel, that’s the last thing on my mind).
No matter where you are in the world, it will make you get outside or go to the gym to get active for at least 3 minutes (that’s right there are workouts you can do for 3 minutes) a day. I love that there’s variety in the type and length of the workouts because when I travel I don’t really want to waste my time doing a workout, I want to get back to exploring as fast as I can.

. . .

Anyways… Enough of me telling you about what it does: go try it for yourself with this  two-week free-trial link  and enter this promo code: AAPTIV2WEEKS
