9 Reasons To Visit the Araucania Region of Chile

•••
I love Santiago, but after a few days hopping between Independence Day Fondas, I was ready to see what else Chile had to offer. The thing with Santiago is that you can always see mountains. They sit strategically on the horizon of the city, towering above any of the tall buildings and creating perfect sunset visions which you can't help but pause and admire.[...]

Skiing in summer: Bariloche, Argentina

•••
Being from England, I’m used to bad weather in the summer... but to be standing on top of a mountain in a snowstorm in mid-August is a surreal experience!

Beyond the valleys & the vineyards: Cycling in the Italian Alps

For an Indian, the first place that comes to mind when thinking of traveling abroad is Nepal (usually followed by Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Thailand).
