Hi everyone! Hope you’re enjoying the weekend! Can’t believe it’s already football season! I re-joined an all girls fantasy football league after a year hiatus and am so out of the loop! We’ll see how well my team actually does…. Anyways, this will be my last Peru post. After our hellish overnight bus ride, we arrived to our last destination, Arequipa. It’s the second largest … Continue reading Perú: Arequipa and Colca Canyon
Hi guys! I am back again with another recap post on my time in Peru. This time I will be talking about my time spent in the Amazon Jungle! I had originally wanted to try and make it to Iquitos, which is in the middle of the jungle in the north of Peru, BUT it is only accessible by boat or plane. Option 1 takes … Continue reading Puerto Maldonaldo, Peru
Hi everyone! For those of you who saw the eclipse, I am jealous! I enjoyed seeing all the photos on social media and hate I missed it. Hopefully, I’ll get the opportunity to see it one of these years! Well anyways, for today’s post, I wanted to share a recap on my time spent in Machu Picchu and Cuzco! To start, I flew to Cuzco … Continue reading Machu Picchu and Cuzco!
Hi guys! So today I will start to share some of my Peru travels. 😊 For this post, I’ll start with Lima, Peru. I only spent two full days there, which I think was sufficient time to see the city. I had an early flight from Santiago (5am which meant I needed to be at the airport by 3am, ouch!) and arrived around 9am. I … Continue reading Lima, Peru
Happy Sunday everyone! I am currently in Peru and am loving it so far. I will share all the travel deets eventually, but first thought I’d start with Hoch’s visit to Chile! Hoch didn’t have a lot of time off of work so we debated a bit on where we wanted to visit while he was here. We finally settled on a few places in … Continue reading The Hoch comes to Chile!
Hi everyone! So as I mentioned in my last post, I am finished with the English Opens Doors Program and am now getting a bit of traveling in before I head back home. Before I start sharing my travel adventures, I wanted to write a brief recap and reflection on how I feel now that the program is over. First, I’ll start with a recap … Continue reading EODP Volunteer Service is OVER
Hi everyone! I am officially finished with the program and have already started my post-program travels. Hoch arrived last Friday and we’ve been exploring the south of Chile together! It was a bit surreal seeing him at the airport. It really is crazy how fast the time has flown by. Before I know it, I’ll be back in the States looking for work (womp womp). … Continue reading Chile: Weekend Adventures – Part 3
Hi all! So I finally broke the once a month post streak I had going there. I am back with a continuation of my last post on weekend trips I’ve taken while here in Chile. So I’ll go ahead and dive right in! El Tabo, Quisco, La Isla Negra, and Algarrobo: (2-2.5 hour bus ride to Santiago and then another 2 hour bus ride directly … Continue reading Chile: Weekend Adventures – Part 2
Hi everyone! So I am at the end of my semester here and can’t believe how fast the time has flown. It has been fun and challenging, but I am ready for it to be over so that I can start my SA travels! It’s difficult to do a lot in just a weekend so I’ve been making plans to travel more after the program. … Continue reading Chile: Weekend Adventures – Part 1
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. To start, I am teaching in a small high school in Cabildo, but am living in the small city of La Ligua (it is about a 20-minute commute). Both cities are in the Valparaíso Region about 2-2.5 hours north of … Continue reading Chile: Life Abroad
