Hi y’all! Another long, overdue post here. I figured for this one, I’d talk a bit about day to day life with my host family.

Both cities are in the Valparaíso Region about 2-2.5 hours north of … Continue reading Chile: Life Abroad

Hi everyone! So it’s officially the final country post on our world travel adventures. Hoch and I decided to splurge and go out with a bang for our last stop, and Iceland was the perfect way to go.
