About Me

My photo

I´m Michelle and I am traveling in Latin America. I have always wanted to travel here and I finally left my home in Boston, MA in July 2013. I have been traveling since then, working here and there and continuously realizing that the world is filled with opportunities for exploration. I hope to travel for a long time but I always find a cozy place to stay for some time. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions I am more than happy to take you up on them. Live long, travel far, love often.

Cajón de Maipo, CHILE: Just a lil' bus ride outside of the city

The new group of ladies and I went on a long weekend adventure to a little place called Cajon de Maipo. It is a valley with many adventurous activities, beautiful sites and clear blue skies. We were all grateful to escape the smoggy city that we have been living in for the past two months. We have made a new friend, Patricio, who showed us some baños and the good places to go. I even went white water rafting, again!! I'm thinking I could get into that as my next profession....adelante, atras, alto!!!
At first we were stuck on the side of the road...

So, I ate an empanada.

However, the view was beautiful.



Termas Colinas. Hot baths in the middle of a valley. Beautiful and relaxing.

San Jose de Maipo.

O'Higgins. 

So ready to paddle dpwn el rio Maipo.


Is this a good idea?

Yeah, it was super fun!


Then, we did some conopying, or zip lining.
