Puerto Montt

I had been reading Chilean history for a couple years and knew that I wanted to visit. It didn’t seem like I needed to spend a whole week in Santiago, so I went to the Lakes District first.

I had been reading Chilean history for a couple years and knew that I wanted to visit. It didn’t seem like I needed to spend a whole week in Santiago, so I went to the Lakes District first. I used Puerto Montt as a base from which to explore other towns in the region. Puerto Montt turned out to be just that….a base to explore from. As I began walking along the lake to my hotel, I spotted a bunch of death metal fans. One was wearing a DEICIDE shirt. I tried to talk to him, but neither him nor his friends spoke English & my Spanish is not good enough (that’s a VAN HAGAR song) for deep conversation. I don’t know any DEICIDE songs, but I know what they sound like, so I started singing what I thought a typical DEICIDE song sounded like. Well, the young man in the shirt started headbanging and singing along. I wish I had that on video!

I grew up in a small borough outside of a small city in eastern Pennsylvania. As soon as I got my driver's license, I started going to see my favorite rock bands (Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Pearl Jam, Slayer, Sleater-Kinney to name a few) and quickly realized that I wanted to spend as much time traveling as possible. After earning my bachelor's degree in Management/Marketing from Penn State University, I started traveling overseas and have since traveled to 38 countries spanning 5 different continents. I'm an urban explorer who loves using public transportation. My 4 favorite American cities are New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C. & Boston. I'm a lover of food and culture who has been to every state except Alaska. Brazil and Russia are at the top of my bucket list. If you need advice on where to get the best pizza or French macarons, I'd love to help!
