Our next adventure will take us on a holiday visit to South America. We take off December 23rd for two weeks south of the Equator. We’ll spend Christmas with some of Nick’s family in Santiago and also explore the Colchagua Valley wine region and stay beachside at Punta de Lobos. Afterwards the two of us will head to San Pedro de Atacama for a few days touring the nature of the driest non-polar desert on Earth, before returning to Chicago. We’ll soon share stories and photos of us drinking Pisco Sours, climbing a volcano and riding horses in the desert (maybe not in that order), but in the meantime, here is a collection of fun facts I’ve learned while researching our destination:
