Many day-trippers venturing to the coast from Santiago, Chile, find themselves in Viña Del Mar. But the neighbouring seaside town of Valparaíso, or Valpo, offers a far more authentic cultural experience. What I found in these colourful hills makes the top of my favourite vacation destinations list!

I’m an adventurous introvert who prefers to step off the beaten track and feel like a local. That’s why I’ve decided to spend a year in South America without an itinerary. I’m taking my time in each city, town, and village, volunteering in animal care and construction. I’m learning not only a new language and culture, but also life skills in recycling, permaculture, and bio-construction. These are in addition to my skills as a bike mechanic, circus performer, and vet nurse. When I’m not hard at work, you can find me on top of a mountain with my camera, practising yoga, or creating a new vegan recipe! To learn more about me visit: earthlingecho.com
