Celebrating one year of travel! Some reflections, new plans & our favorite memories

One year ago on October 4, with much trepidation and excitement, Laurent & I landed in Buenos Aires, Argentina with just backpacks strapped to our backs containing everything we would need for the next two years. I had quit my job back in New York, sold my car and many of my possessions and had no idea what the future would hold.

The last photos of our trip … Goodbye Chile & Hello Bolivia

Just another quick update.  We put most of our photos from the north of Chile, The Norte Chico (Valparaiso, Pisco Elqui …) and the Norte Grande (San Pedro de Atacama, Putre, Parque Nacional Lauca, …). And the first pictures of Bolivia (our 3 weeks in the beautiful Sucre).  You can find all the best photos from Laurent on his Flickr gallery (Already available Uruguay, Argentina, Antarctica and now all Chile). You can also go and like his Facebook page L.L.P..  So if you are tired of reading, you can just look at the pictures!  Click on the ‘photos’ tab and you can search by place.  Enjoy!!!

Sucre for 3 weeks, learning Spanish and getting to know Bolivian food

After our rough introduction to Bolivia, we finally made it to Sucre. And like so many travelers before, we fell in love with this city. In fact, it's easily become one of our favorite cities in all of South America. We decided to spend 3 weeks here learning more Spanish and we could have stayed for 3 more. Why all this love for Sucre? Well, that's easy.

A fitting farewell to Chile & a crazy hello to Bolivia

If any of you remember, we walked into Chile way back on January 28! Since then, we have had a great love affair with this country. Chile has some of the friendliest, most interesting people. People who are innately curious and who offer much in terms of their culture and of course their food! Let's take a walk down Chilean food memory lane.

Life on Mars. Otherworldly Chile

It's just barely dawn. You are up almost 14,000 ft (4,200 m) at the highest geysers in the world. The sun is barely a sliver and already the light starts pouring into the vapor filled landscape where mud pools noisily bubble & everywhere you walk, the earth hisses at you. It's a scene straight out of the dawn of time. During the day, pink flamingos crowd altiplano lakes while volcanoes look menacingly on.

Drinking Pisco in Pisco, eating sun-cooked goat & spotting Saturn’s rings

Did you know that there is a war going on? Well, here in Chile, the war against Peru is alive and well and it has been going on for 400 years! Esepcially in the town of Pisco Elqui, when in 1936, the name was changed from La Union to Pisco Elqui just to prove how passionate the Chilean's are about 'their' national beverage, Pisco. Corner any Chilean and ask if Pisco is Peruvian or Chilean and you will likely get a heated, passionate response that will naturally end in favor of Chile. Both Peru and Chile lay claim to fame to this controversial beverage. So who wins? The war rages on!

Infused exposures is back!

We're back! It was my first time taking a 'vacation' to go 'home' so that was kind of weird but it was also pretty amazing to be able to make this opportunity happen. It was a bit of a whirlwind and time flew by for both of us but it was great seeing so many friends and family. I discovered I don't miss New York that much but I miss its people. Okay, so I missed burgers, pizza and bagels!! And real coffee! Now we are back to 'No es cafe' (Nescafe).

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.

Earthquake!!

Now that I have your attention, no there wasn't an ACTUAL earthquake here in Chile, although the drink we tried is named for Chile's notorious past with these natural disasters. The earthquake we experienced was the 'Terremoto drink'. It's definitely not fancy enough to be called a cocktail!

Would you like some crazy with your may?

What's up with that title? Crazy with may? What does that mean?! Have I completely lost it? 6 months of traveling and now I've gone mad? No, I am simply referring to 'locos con mayo' and one of Chile's more humorous translations.
