Chile

Camping Abroad Chilean Style

Kirra McGowin is a student at University of Colorado Boulder and an ISA Featured Photo Blogger. She studied abroad with ISA in Valparaíso, Chile.

I have spent nearly five months in this beautiful country called Chile. Since I only have class three days a week, There is a great amount of time to travel around and explore! After many weekend trips and a break for Fiestas Patrias (the celebration for the Chilean Independence Day) someone mentioned to a friend of mine that it was like we were camping abroad, not studying abroad. Studying abroad has great benefits, including this! It’s nice to have time to really see the area of where you are in and learning all about the culture and the city. Getting out of the city for a few days allows you to unwind and enjoy the absolutely beautiful nature of Chile. From great camping spots, to the great views, how can you not fall in love with this country?
