I will begin this story with a quote from our blog ¨What´s the Point¨: ...down here, what you see everywhere, are stray dogs.  I am the first person to say that you have to help people before you help animals, but this is ridiculous.  You see animals ... Read more >

You know a trip is going to be crappy when the first thing you see when you get to your destination is a toilet full of crap! And that was the first thing Meli happened upon when we got to Chiloé. Chiloé is a small island in the South of Chile. ... Read more >

Reached Bavaria, Chile?

Pucon, Chile-it could possibly the adventurer´s dream.  The small community itself is completely surrounded by verdant mountains that jut powerfully into the sky.  More stunning however is Volcan Villarica that looms in the distance.  It smokes daily, ... Read more >

So anyways, in Pucòn, there is a ton of stuff to do.  Despite how great it would have been to climb the smoking volcano, we opted to go for a horse trek.  The Steve McQueen in me is obsessed with horses and Meli is pretty much down with any animal big ... Read more >

Here we are, day number 6 in Chile.  We left the capital of Santiago several days ago and arrived in Valparaiso (literally ¨"go to paradise") on Monday afternoon.  This city is definitely a place everyone should see before they die.  The city ... Read more >
