¡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: . . ….

Hello Fall?…

…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…

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…

Two sides to everything…

Sometimes you just have to turn around and look behind you for a second. It might change a lot more than you think! . . . Location of picture: Cortina Puclaro 25 minutes from Vicuña, Chile 50 minutes from La Serena, Chile . . . While taking the picture above, I was drawn to the…

Oceans…

Within a year I’ve been to the North Atlantic and the South Pacific in 3 different countries! . . . From: Nova Scotia, Canada To: Glover’s Reef, Belize To: Chile And, the craziest thing is that every time I went to the ocean in those country I forgot which country I was in for a…

Face the fact!

Do YOU own a passport? Fact: Did you know that more than half of the people that live in North America don’t own a passport? . . . Now, I don’t know exactly how many people live in North America, but it’s definitely a fair amount. And, the fact that only half of us own…

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. ….

It’s a big world out there!

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” — Astronomer Carl Sagan . . . So, I found this quote and wanted to share it because it makes me want to get up and travel somewhere, exploring the unknown parts of the world. There’s a place out there in the world that has something incredible…

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:…

The world around me…

So, for today’s post, I decided to observe the most popular place of the town where I’m currently living. . . . So, I’m just sitting here in the middle of “La Plaza de Armas” in Quillota, Chile, eating manjar ice cream in 30 degree Celsius weather, in the middle of January. . . ….

Learning…

For the record: I don’t know the person that posted the previous tweet, but I very much agree with it. Here’s why: . . . As a high school and college graduate, I do think education is important to start your life by learning the basics. But, as a traveler, I know that I still…

Strange, yet Fascinating! 

Wow! That went by quick! 2 weeks to living in Chile-in the books! I can’t believe it’s already, and only, been two weeks. It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long, but yet, it also feels like I’ve done so much. . . . This year (2018) has already been a crazy year, all about…

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,…

Street dogs everywhere! 

So, I’ve only been in Chile for a few days now, but one thing I’ve notice since I got here are all the street dogs. . . . Now, I didn’t say ‘stray dogs’ because they are not strays. They get fed, but when they grow up and are not puppies anymore people don’t want…

Merry Christmas! 

Have a Merry Christmas! 🙂 Wherever you are in the world; enjoy the traditional Christmas!

Growing-Up…

I hate adulting! Growing-up Sucks! Yes, sure, sometimes it’s cool, but sometimes it just sucks! . . . Yes, it’s not the funnest thing ever, but you must learn to embrace it because saying ‘it sucks’ isn’t going to make you younger; you’re always going to be growing-up. So, you might as well accept it and…

The Unknown… 

I’m tired of feeling stuck! I want to travel & experience new & different things! . . . I’m tired of living in this bubble of what I know about the world. I am starting to get tired of my comfort zone (I think this is a sign that I need to change something). I…

The Grocery Store

The most interesting & culturally diverse place in the world!  . . . Seriously though, grocery stores really are the most interesting and culturally diverse places in the world!  See it for yourself, next time you are in a new country. Just go visit the local grocery store because you can learn a lot about…

Why I love learning new languages?

Hello – Bonjour – Hola – 你 好 . . . I’ve always been so fascinated with languages (I don’t know if that’s because I grew up speaking 2 already or because I just really like learning about different languages and cultures)! . . . Anyways.. It’s all just so fascinating to me… …That people…

Country-Island-City kid…

You’re such a city kid! You belong on the island! You seem like a country person!  . . . If you’ve never been told any of these sentences, then you’re doing a great job at blending in with your surroundings! Congratulations!  However, if people tell you those things, it doesn’t mean that you’re not still…

Wander Always… 

I have major wanderlust! I am always homesick for places I’ve never been! I always want to be elsewhere and my wanderlust grows stronger the more I Travel! Every time I travel, I’ve found that the best way to truly wander is to just get lost and immerse yourself completely in the moment and the culture!…

Generations…

“Wow! The next generation is gonna ruin this world that we worked so hard to build for them!” –Says: people born in the 60’s . . . The following letter is for people born in the 60s. Dear elder & wiser human,       Please don’t be offended by this; just read through to the end;…
