A First Timer's Guide to Torres del Paine

Patagonia is the most beautiful place I’ve ever visited. Even after seeing thousands of photos from social media and fellow bloggers, it was still jaw dropping to see it in person. Since Patagonia is a large region spanning Chile and Argentina, I only scraped the surface by visiting Torres del Paine. But it was still worth every second.

Road Trip Part 3: Huilo Huilo Biological Reserve

From the moment I saw the Pinterest post on Montana Magica Lodge in Huilo Huilo, I was enamored with the hotel, and never in a million years did I think I'd get a chance to visit this "Hobbit House." We booked a couple of nights at this magical resort nestled in a biological reserve, hoping it would live up to the hype.

Road Trip Part 2: Pucon & Waterfalls

When the light started to roll in the next morning, we realized we were floating in the clouds. The house was high up on a hill, so we had clear views of the mountains, and the fog helped give Pucon a magical feel. Our hike to Salto del Claro was about 90 minutes, and was complete with beautiful vistas of adjacent farmland as well as various types of farm animals grazing on the rolling fields.
