My 2nd trip to South America. On this trip, I started in the lake district & ended in the capital district. I’m glad I did it that way. Forgetting my iPod was a major disappointment. Besides flying between Puerto Montt & Santiago, I used public transportation to get everywhere. Since I can’t go without music while riding a bus (or train), I had to use a portable DVD player and play the few CDs I brought. Yes, I got a few stares lol! Santiago did feel like a smaller Buenos Aires to me, but it seemed more expensive. I stayed in a very nice area and was able to use the Metro to get to most places. For me, riding the Metro is a must when visiting any city. Like Rick Steves, I try to experience places like a local. I don’t know anyone in Chile, but I did my best. I’m also wearing one of my favorite shirts (Yeah Yeah Yeahs). I judge any trip by whether or not I wish I had more time when it was time to leave. I would like to see more of Chile some day!

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!
