I’ve made it across the Pacific Ocean to Chile!
Learnings & Observations:
– Chilean Customs officers may or may not fine you for bringing in fruit and not declaring it, depending on the mood of their boss when they ask.
– When getting a share-taxi from the airport, the only instructions after paying at the desk are: “Go to door 5. Find Antonio”
– Keeping within a road lane is completely optional – why do that when you could drive hovering over 2 lanes and weave in and out of traffic as you please?
– English is not the common language spoken by travellers here; there’s lots of Spanish and French.
Yay! So finally I have my blog set up!
Some of you may think I’ve already gone seeing as I did tell everyone I was leaving on the 28th of July, but no, I’m actually still in Melbourne. Still packing.
If all goes according to my you-can-barely-call-it-a-plan plan, I’ll be on the Sydney to Santiago flight at midday on Wednesday the 6th of August. Only 2 days to go! From there, I may or may not spend a day in Santiago before catching another 6 hour flight up to my first official destination: Bogota, Colombia.
