So I started this blog to write about my travel experiences. Turns out I can talk about them all day long to anyone but trying to get myself to sit and write about them is a lot harder… I have visited a bunch of amazing places in Chile and have not written about a single one… so I am going to backtrack a bit to October 2016 and try and catch up.
One of the first things I wanted to check out in Chile were the beaches – because there are a bunch close to Santiago – and the wine. So, back in October, two of my friends and I got in the car and drove down to Pichilemu, a little surf town about 4 hours south of Santiago. It was a little chilly since winter had just ended, but still really beautiful. We stayed in a pretty cool hostel (Hostel Patiperro) with pool and a sweet view of the ocean.
On the way back up, we drove through Valle de Colchagua to try some of the amazing wine from that region. Chilean wine is as good as they say. I will definitely have to check out more of those. We chose to visit Viña Montes. Amazing wines with a pretty awesome view and tour of the vineyards.
