Hope you are all well. The time has finally arrived for us to head home!! After 5 months on the road in South America, we're outta here and back to the sunny shores of Sydney!
Over the past week we have visited a couple of smaller cities just outside Santiago, Valpariso and Vina Del Mar. The are both situated on the coastline, and about 9km apart. We stayed in Valpariso, but walked the 9km along the beach front, and through the fishing area to Vina del Mar for the day. Not a lot to see in either places, but nice place to relax and chill out for a few days. The weather has been great, lovely cool sea breezes, sun shining, glorious days, Im even starting to get some of my tan back!
In Santiago it has been the same, nice and warm. We caught up with another Aussie couple that we met in Ecuador a few days ago for drinks, then we met the following day and went up to Cerro Santa Lucia, gondolas take you above the city skyline to a lookout, pools, and the virgin mary statue.
In the afternoon we had a nice relaxing picnic in one of the parks.
Well Im off to start packing the bags now, Hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas, Cant wait to catch up with everyone at home. Keep in touch!
