Wandering in Valparaiso Chile

I will always remember our day in Valparaiso, Chile as a perfect example of how travel dreams don’t match reality – and that’s OK. I think I secretly thought Valparaiso would be even a tiny bit like the busy trade port described in Allende’s Daughter of Fortune – Panama Canal be damned. It wasn’t. There Read the Rest…

Souvenir Shopping in Chile

For a day that started with a 4am wake-up call to get to the El Tatio Geyser field at dawn, BigB was surprisingly still cheerful at our mid-afternoon souvenir shopping stop. This grandmother had knit the hat he’s modeling (which we bought) and didn’t need much persuading to join him in this photo. Read more Read the Rest…

Death Valley Chile

Death Valley, Chile is just outside San Pedro de Atacama, high in the altiplano. The town, though pretty, is a pricey tourist trap but with views like this visible in the desert just a short drive from the town center, who could really complain?

From Argentina to Australia

Bathroom Door Sign

My boys fell over themselves laughing when they found this by the restrooms in a cafe in Santiago. (We’ve since seen it in other restaurants, cafes and the odd hostel). Oh, yes, the joys of traveling with teen boy (bathroom) humor. It’s a laugh-a-minute most days. Trust me. Head on over to DeliciousBaby for more Read the Rest…

Visiting The Concho Y Toro Winery

  (Our camera was stolen the day before we visited Concha Y Toro. The picture above is my husband’s rendition of our tasting experience.) We like to drink wine in my house. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that we love to drink wine. We’ve toured vineyards in Napa and in Walla Read the Rest…

Sand-boarding Near San Pedro de Atacama

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time you’ll know that I’m partial to winter sports. On a cold winter’s day, I really, truly love the feeling of hurtling down a (fairly) steep mountain slope on a snowboard.
