Put Chile on your travel map

I’ve just come back from one of the most hospitable destinations ever. The people, the food, the scenery and the wine of Chile makes it one of the best places to enjoy Latin culture without any strain or pain.last Not only is the south a winter wonderland that takes your breath away at every turn, but the north offers the world heritage city of Valparaiso with its fabulously painted fairy tale houses, the amazingly individualistic home of Neruda, the tiny fishing village where horses pull out the boats from the sea and the gracious and evolving metropolis of Santiago.
I stayed with a host family in Santiago who were able to not only share their wonderful family with me but their farm, their city flat and their experiences as SERVAS travellers themselves. Will I be back? Do kids like sweets?…hmmm. Joyce Martin
