Do you know how many times I’ve gotten the reaction- “there are skyscrapers in Santiago!?!?!??!” to one of my Instagram photos? One too many …. Now that I’ve lived in Santiago for the better part of a year and a half, it’s strange to think that most of my friends and family back home don’t know the first thing about this city, or my life here. Even
I constantly get the question- “What are you doing in Chile?” Seriously, all the time. Even from close friends and family back at home. I thought I shared more of my life on social media than anyone cared to know about, but apparently, I’ve been sparing the details. And so, for my first “Little Look at my Expat Life” I’m going to be giving you
So, apparently, I love horseback riding… Who knew ….? When my boss from the US was in town and gave me permission to plan a weekend “work” outing, the possibilities seemed endless. I have a very long never-ending list of activities that I’d like to do in and around Santiago- markets, museums, beaches, vineyards, mountains, and so on– so how would I choose just one?
A few weeks back, I wrote about my thoughts on taking a blogging break. I was feeling exhausted, stretched too thin and pretty overwhelmed trying to keep up with blogging and my new 9-5 work life (which isn’t really 9-5). Truthfully, most of those feelings still exist, but after a lot of thought, I’ve decided that maybe a “break,” isn’t the way to go. Maybe to
As has been the story of my life the past month or so- I’ve been pretty swamped with work. It’s actually been a really good thing and I’m absolutely loving my new job. That doesn’t change the fact that it’s been pretty busy lately though, leaving little time for other things. And while I don’t like to mix work with pleasure, I’m happy to announce
If you’re a regular in these parts, or a follower of my social media channels, it may be no surprise to you that lately I’ve been somewhat, well, absent. Who knows, maybe not. Maybe I hide it better than I think.. I’ve said it a lot over the past few months, so I’m sorry if this is getting somewhat repetitive, but things around here are
Is anyone else at all freaked out that it’s been a whole year since Marcella, Isabel, Van and I started Wanderful Wednesday ….. Sure, it’s super exciting that our linkup has made it this long, but it’s also crazy to think that over a year ago Marcella and I met for the very first time [in real life] in a Santiago café to put this little project of
Hello from the other sideeeeeeee! Yes, I’m channeling my inner Adele for today’s blog post. But seriously, have you ever thought about the differing seasons in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres? I know I never had until I was forced to. I guess I always “knew” that the seasons were opposite, but it just seemed too silly to be true. Christmas in summer? Halloween in spring? After
It’s been a longgggggggg time [I actually can’t remember how long] since I’ve updated anyone in the blogosphere as to what exactly it is that I’m doing right now……. and well, I owe you all an explanation. Truthfully, I haven’t given an update yet, because I hardly knew exactly what it was that I was doing myself. I’ve been a bit all over the place and trying
Hello hello and happy Wanderful Wednesday friends! I’m officially back and writing from Santiago, Chile! [Yes, yes I know. I owe you all an explanation, but that’s another story for another day.] I haven’t had a chance to write down all of my ideas/thoughts/plans yet, so instead I’m going to continue checking off posts from my long list of ideas covering my January travels in Southern Chile.
