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! 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!

Hi all! This post is coming to you from Chile, South America! I’ve been here for a little over 15 days and am thoroughly enjoying this country so far.
