Is there a way I can say this without sounding like I’m bragging? I get 90% discount on flights starting…. TODAY! So Pablo and I are flying to Puerto Montt, Chile tomorrow and spending the weekend there with some of his friends that, unfortunately, had to drive there. We also had plans to make it to Easter Island next weekend for their annual cultural festival, but the flights are full and there is pretty much no way 5 people are not going to show up so we can get on standby. That means I’ll leave for Hawaii to visit my parents and brother a bit earlier than planned and arrive there next weekend to spend two weeks there. I’ll be in the U.S. for the Super Bowl! Pablo was dying to go to Hawaii to watch the Super Bowl with my dad, but it just wasn’t worth all the vacation days to travel so far for such little time. Mexico and the Dominican Republic are on our list to vacation together since the flights are direct with LAN. On my way back, I’ll stop over in LA, get a ride to San Diego, spend a weekend there, then take the train back up to LA for a night and then head back to Santiago.
I’m thinking this blog might turn into a travel blog for a bit. And I promise to take lots of photos, artistic ones, not just point & shoot, but with my SLR, since one of my goals this year was to take more photos of my “daily life” and I haven’t really stuck to it yet.
Happy Summer! (in the Southern Hemisphere)
