Summer in December? It’s easy to forget that for those of us living in the Southern Hemisphere, summer is here!
As a primary school teacher here in Chile I am lucky to be treated to nine weeks of summer holiday. Which is a crazy long time! As I write this, I have two weeks left at school and then I am off until the end of February.
So, Summer is a great time for planning adventures, both locally and afar too. Here is how my plans are shaping up so far for this summer:
Christmas :: 24,25 Dec.
I will be spending Christmas with Carlos’ family who live just outside of Santiago. We will spend Christmas in the least Christmassy way for me: by the pool with a BBQ. I don’t know that a Summer Christmas will ever really feel like Christmas for me, but I do know that it’s still lots of fun!!
Anniversary:: 26 Dec.
The 26th December marks our one year wedding anniversary which means we will celebrate with our favourite food, Indian.
London :: 27 Dec – 14 Jan.
I’m really lucky to be heading home to London again. This time I am going for two-and-a-half weeks and I can’t wait to catch up with family and friends as well as soaking up that real wintery Christmas feeling.
Coyhaique and Carretera Austral :: 1-15 Feb
Carlos and I are heading to the south of Chile (Patagonia) for our summer holiday this year. We are going to be spending 15 days adventuring around Coyhaique and The Carratera Austral, an area that is known for its stunning natural beauty. We aren’t going to plan much, as our travelling style is very much a ‘go with the flow one’, but we are planning to combine a mix of camping, cabins and B&Bs. So excited to explore a new area of Chile.
And now, plans that aren’t set, but that I’d like to happen:
I haven’t been to my favourite city, Valpo, since April! So I am well overdue a trip to the most colourful city, especially as it is oh so close to Santiago!
Summer isn’t complete without a few days at the beach and since Santiago is so close to the beach, I am sure that I’ll head to the beach for a few days with some of my friends from work.
There are a few beaaaaautiful spots close to Santiago that I would like to explore this summer!
