Infused exposures is going on vacation!

Wait, aren’t we already on vacation?  Yeah, it’s just a vacation within the vacation!

Last week, we visited Chile’s most colorful city, Valparaiso.  If Chile, San Francisco, Brooklyn & Paris had a baby, it might be Valparaiso.  It is very hilly like San Francisco (but it’s more like a poor, distant cousin), gritty like some parts of Brooklyn, the streets are windy like Paris but after all, you are in Chile and reminded of that too, namely by all the stray dogs and cats everywhere!

beautiful Valparaiso!

hilly, cobblestone streets

it really reminded me of San Fran; there were even streetcars!

I took two different cooking classes in Valparaiso and had so much fun learning more about Chilean food and recipes!  I promise to share all of those experiences with you soon.  For the past four days, Laurent & I have been in Santiago in anticipation of our flights back home.  We are taking a three week vacation (Laurent to France & me to New York)  to visit our families and friends.

6 months of traveling around Argentina, Uruguay, Chile and of course Antarctica have been beyond-words amazing.  We live on a truly beautiful planet!  We realize how lucky we are to be getting to see so much of it and are grateful for all our moments.  For those of you reading our blog we really appreciate it and are happy to share some of our experiences with you!

We are excited to be returning to Chile in three weeks but for now we are happy to be going back home to visit all the people we have missed.  I wouldn’t trade the travel experiences for anything in the world and we have met amazing people on our trip but nothing compares with family and friends back home.

We look forward to reconnecting with everyone and will be ready to get back on the road in May!  We are trying to find ways to make infusedexpsoures even better, so stay tuned!

Here are just a few photos from our time in Valparaiso:
