5 Instagrammers to make you fall in love with Chile

•••
While most of my personal bucket list countries lie in the far north of the northern hemisphere, there is one place in the south, that is constantly on my mind: Chile. There is something so mysterious about this country that stretches for thousands of miles from the dry desert of the Atacama to the fjords and glaciers of southern Patagonia. It is over 10 [...]

10 things I've learned while teaching in Chile

•••
Teaching is often a go-to profession for those of us who want to see the world, I’ve been teaching English as a second language for 3 years now, with 1 year in Japan and 2 years here in Chile under my belt. I’m lucky enough to get to travel, immerse myself in new cultures - and still get paid! I would recommend this job to anyone. But this lifestyle isn't j[...]

A different world in the Atacama Desert

•••
Atacama Desert in Chile is otherworldly. The rugged, dusty, red terrain is so unusual that it is often used as a substitute for Mars in Hollywood films. And the fact that it’s hot, dry and at high altitude means the desert has some of the clearest night skies on earth, and is supposedly the best place in the world for star gazing. That's why it’s home to the[...]

The Travelettes Itinerary: Hiking in Patagonia

•••
“Don’t ask about the weather forecast, it’s Patagonia” is scrawled on a sign outside one of the campsites on the W-trek. I first saw Patagonia on Pinterest. I can't remember what I was searching for. But I remember the mountain. Ice capped, mythical, surrounded by water tinted a shade of blue all its own. But there it was amid recipes for banana muffins a[...]

Photos which will whisk you away to Chile's Rainbow City of Valparaiso

•••
Located on 44 hills which cascade into the Pacific Ocean, Valparaiso was my last stop in Chile and perhaps my favorite. I only had a day here, which was just enough time to get to grips with the rainbow city, but not quite long enough to explore every nook and cranny of the city, something which I would have loved to do, but perhaps which would take a lifeti[...]

9 amazing things to do on Easter Island Besides seeing the Moai

•••
Remote as it is historically alluring, Easter Island (Isla de Pascua in Spanish; Rapa Nui to the locals) often tops the bucket lists of intrepid travelers. Most make the 5-hour plane journey from mainland Chile for one reason alone: the Moai. These ancient statues— erected by different tribes for what is believed to be religious worship— are scattered throug[...]

7 Reasons to travel Chilean Patagonia by Bike

•••
“Vos sos Holandesa?” asked the 89-year-old Chilean caballero over and over again during our stay. My partner and I just passed his house when we realized that we weren’t going to make it to our planned destination, Hornopirén. We felt like we had walked to Mecca and back (in reality we had cycled 40 kilometres, in the mountains, on an unpaved road), [...]

The world's most amazing swimming pools

•••
Traveling can be hard sometimes. I mean wearing your backpack all the time, visiting thousands of sights, walking through streets the whole day, taking trains and planes and buses non-stop - all that stuff can be exhausting. Therefore, every now and then, you just need to give yourself a break. In your ho(s)tel bed... getting a massage... or while taking a n[...]
