Santiago, Chile

We started with a cold beach break in a little fishing village on the shore of the Pacific, explored the colour and chaos of Valparaiso, then headed to Santiago to soak up the city life. The city had an amazing atmosphere with music, restaurants and bars in every corner of our neighbourhood. We acted like tourists and like locals and saw different sides to the city. It is a fun place to be and has a big South American heart.

 Colourful chaos in the hills of Valparaiso. We spent a day running amok from one decorated wall to the next.
