Nov 12th 2012 9:28PM I swear I'm not trying to advertise, I just wanted to share some of my favorite shots I took from Chiloé earlier this year.
Overall though, Chiloe was my least favorite place we visited in Chile. There's plenty of coast to explore on the mainland and the glaciers and mountains and rivers are much more interesting to me.
Aug 28th 2012 1:37PM It can be difficult. My wife & I are vegan and travelled for 3 months in Chile/Argentina this year. We found it too difficult to stay vegan and switched to vegetarian but it wasn't easy either. We felt we were a burden and inconvenience to many people. Especially down in the south where fresh fruits and veggies are hard to come by, it was much harder. We did a lot of hitchhiking and depended on the graciousness and hospitalities of many people. We did our utmost best not to be a pain, and we probably weren't, but it was stressful for us. Our Spanish is probably at a 2nd or 3rd grade level and they would all want to know why we didn't eat meat and it wasn't exactly easy to explain!
We're definitely going to be doing more travel in the future. It can be done. It's worth it, but every experience will be different. Sometimes it will be easy and sometimes hard.
Jun 8th 2012 3:30PM I just turned 30 but my wife & I love getting out in the parks every spare moment we can. We have our own business and have lots of flexibility thankfully. I think many young people today are afraid of the wild places... or worse, bored. They're afraid of being alone with their own thoughts, alone without the internet... they can't take the earbuds out of ears long enough to hear the quiet... the parks are almost like an inheritance that get handed down from our parents generation to ours and if our parents don't take us out to experience these wonderful places, I'm afraid few will discover them.
