7 months in S.A.

Wow! I can’t believe I’ve lived in South America for a total of 7 months. . . . Half a year of living on another continent.Half a year of learning another language.Half a year of living in another culture. . . . It’s crazy to think about all the things I’ve done / learned in…

Happy Valentine’s Day! <3

So, this is my first post in February, which makes me kinda sad (I really wanted to post more) and I don’t have an excuse for not posting (I did post a lot last months, but this month has just flown by). I promise, I have more posts coming soon (I’ve been doing a lot…

Foreign Language Classes Abroad!

So, I realize I said that posting more on my blog was one of my new years resolutions (and this is only my second post), but I promise I have a lot of posts coming (they’re all written down, just not posted yet…). Just know that I haven’t given up on my resolutions, I’m actually…

Day 1 in Buenos Aires, Argentina

I made it to Buenos Aires, Argentina!  . . .  My first 24 hours here were a whirlwind of emotions. I couldn’t believe that I was actually here (it seems too surreal). I was so happy that I finally made it! But, after the initial feeling of amazement and happiness, the culture shock hit me. I…

My Trip to Argentina! (Part 1)

So, I haven’t posted in a while, but the video below explains it all. (I will try to write a post very soon.) . . . > In the meantime, click HERE to watch the video! -LiveForAdventure! 🙂

A new chapter!

Update on this blog, and my life:A new chapter is starting very soon (Dec. 5)! . . .  I am “moving” to Argentina! I say: “moving” because I will be living there for a minimum of 3 months (possibly, longer).And, although I’m nervous and a little sad (as this will be my first Christmas away from home); I’m also…

I have a question…

I said that phrase SO MANY (more like TOO MANY) times when I was living in Chile. Or, at least, that’s what I told myself because I thought I was getting annoying, but, turns out people didn’t mind answering my questions; and I learned so much by asking all those questions during those 3 months….

Travel…

If you love those things as much as I do, and you also love to travel and explore new places, check out this program to find your next amazing adventure: GreenHeartTravel I also copied my review of the program I did below: Program: Teach English in a home-stay in Chile (for 3 months, in my…

Home after living abroad!?

Coming back home after living abroad for a time is not easy! . . . Yup, Reverse Culture Shock! It’s a real thing! . . . So, I’ve only been back from Chile for about a week now and the only way I can describe coming home after living abroad for a time is: “weird”…

Living with a host family… / Leaving Chile…

My experience living with a host family in another country in 3 words: Interesting-Exciting-Difficult . . . So, in case you don’t know. I lived with my host family in Chile for three months, and I really got to know them and they really started to become like a real second family. But, at first,…

¡Una publicación en español!

So, just a heads up: this is a short post… Also, please don’t judge my Spanish. I’ve lived in Chile for 3 months, so I’ve learned a lot, but, I know, I still have lots to learn. But, I wanted to try to write a post in Spanish. So, here it is: . . ….

Coco!

So, I just had a “weird” experience. . . . I just went to the movie theatre here in Chile and watched a Spanish movie (w/o subtitles). . . . It might not seem like such a weird thing, but that’s the best word I could think of to describe it. It made me feel…

Stranger danger!

So, “stranger danger” can’t really be in my vocabulary anymore. . . . Remember when you were young, and your parents told you not to talk to strangers? Well, that comes with a lot of terms and conditions, the biggest one being: Traveling. P.S. I’m not talking about those creepy strangers in white vans (you…

It all makes sense…

I finally understand everything that happened before this trip. . . . So, here I am. I made it to Chile! I am living in this beautiful country, teaching English and learning Spanish with my host family. The process to get here was long, but definitely worth it! But, there are still days that feel…

“Slang” palabras en español…

So, I’ve thought about writing a post in Spanish, but to be honest, I don’t know if my level of Spanish is ready to write a full post in Spanish (but I will soon, hopefully). So, I thought, instead, I’ll just write a few new Chilean slang words I’ve learned (because Chileans use a lot…

A day in Viña del Mar, Chile!

So, a few days ago, I took a bus to Viña del Mar, which is 1 hour away from the town that I live in, here in Chile. And, although it was a quick one day trip, it made me love Chile even more. . . . Here are a few pictures I took of…

Hope For Your Future…

Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future. -Robert H. Schuller . . . So, before I begin, I should start by saying that I don’t know the person who said that quote, but, when I read it, I immediately remembered one of the main reasons why I made the decision to live here,…

Where in the world?

So, I’ve recently realized that I’ve written a few update posts about my life here in Chile, but I never really shared where exactly I am living in Chile. And, so I figured I would share my location, just for those of you that are curious, and might want to visit Chile one day. ….

An hour into my day!

The following post is just one hour into my day (through 15 minute intervals), today-January 28, 2018. . . . I’m going to start with the hour during & after lunch. 15:30 – Lunch time (by the way, I’m currently living in Chile & that is a normal lunch time). Today for lunch, I ate:…
