C is for Chile


With over 6400 kilometers of coastline, I always think of water when I think of Chile.

We visited Chile mainly because we’d had a high school exchange student from there live with us in Alaska for one year and we wanted to visit her and her family.  As you can imagine with that much coastline, water and the beach are things they like to do in their free time.

The coastline was rugged in parts and had nice smooth beaches in parts.  There are plenty of fisherman and we ate at fish restaurant after fish restaurant enjoying the freshest of ingredients. In Santiago, we just had to go to the Central Market where there were fish I had never seen before and restaurants that feature all kinds of fish dishes.

Chile is a beautiful country, and for us it makes one of the more special places we’ve visited because of our connection with Polyn, our Chilean daughter.

Have you ever been to Chile or had an exchange student?

  1. Great to read you’ve been in my country 🙂 Did you have a chance to visit Valparaíso? I’m from there…
    Keep up the amazing posts for the challenge…

  2. Chile is one of the rare places that I have neither been to nor know many people from. But, it’s definitely on my list as I’ve had friends who have traveled there and have enjoyed it. It’s great that your exchange student was able to show you her home country.

  3. Never been to Chile, but certainly would like to – and this post made me want to go even more. Seems like “my cup of tea” Corinne:-) Amazing scenery in those pics 🙂

  4. That’s kind of sweet that you have your ‘Chilean daughter’. Our family used to have exchange students stay with us when I was a kid, but it was only for a week or two each time and never really stayed in touch with any of them.

  5. I haven’t been to South America yet. I have been close, with 50 miles, but not on the shores, so no Chile for me. However I was an exchange student in Germany, and my family hosted one as well.
