After our stay in Atacama we flew down to Patagonia, and stayed at Tierra Patagonia. I had talked to a lot of people that had been to Patagonia so I knew it would be really beautiful, but I really had no idea just how incredible this region really is! Patagonia might just be the most gorgeous place on earth.
I could not have loved Tierra Patagonia any more! The hotel has such a unique and modern design. The service is really good, and all of the food and drinks are excellent. It was fun to be really active during the day, then come back to the hotel and have a really good dinner.
Tierra Patagonia is located right on a lake, and every room has great views. We arrived at night, so the next morning I opened my window to this view. WOW!
Tierra Patagonia includes all meals, beverages, and excursions every day. So on the first morning we talked to a few guides to plane out our next few days there. The first day we did the Cornices hike. The view from the top was amazing!!
We went back to the hotel and had a wonderful lunch, and then went on a really fun horseback ride. I could never get sick of the views!
The next day we drove around the Torres del Paine National Park. I loved how different the colors of all of the lakes are.
Then we went on a boat trip to Lago Grey to see the glaciers. Oh my gosh, this was so incredible!
The next morning we went on the Hunters Trail hike, and saw lots of animals, including guanacos, foxes, and condors.
The last afternoon I got a massage and relaxed at the spa. Pretty good decision if I do say so myself! I loved the Jacuzzi outside!
Tierra Patagonia is the perfect honeymoon destination for a couple that is really active and looking for a unique experience together. You can combine a stay in Patagonia with many other great spots in South America.

The absolute best part of my job are the amazing travel opportunities that I get. I was recently asked to go on a trip to Chile, and I could not have said yes any faster! This was my first trip to South America, but certainly not my last!
Our first stop was Tierra Atacama, in the Atacama Desert in Northern Chile. This is a luxury adventure lodge, which includes all meals, drinks, and daily activities. Let me be clear- I am definitely not an adventure traveler. But it was so fun to have such a new and different travel experience, and to stay in such a beautiful destination!
I did SO much in the few days I was in Atacama! When you arrive at Tierra Atacama, a guide goes over all of the options of excursions available and makes recommendations based on your fitness level and what you are interested in.
The first day we went to the Salt Mountains and to Moon Valley. So beautiful! And yes, that is salt not snow!
That afternoon we did a long bike ride to Cejar Lagoon, where you float in the salt lagoon. It was such a crazy feeling floating in the lagoon, and not even being able to put your arms or legs down into the water!
The next morning we got up early to see the Tatio Geysers, and then had breakfast just after sunrise. Such a beautiful experience!
That afternoon I relaxed at their amazing pool- just look at that view!
I really enjoyed the hotel. It has really modern design and every suite has an outdoor shower with great views. The food was amazing as well, with menus that changed daily. It was really fun to be active during the day, and then have wine and a wonderful dinner each evening. It was a true luxury, adventure experience.
I would highly recommend a stay at Tierra Atacama for couples that are really active and looking to do something different. This destination can be paired with many other places in South America as well.
Next up- my adventure continues at Tierra Patagonia!

New Years Eve is such a fun holiday! This year, I will be spending New Years in Bangkok and will be sure to share all of the exciting details upon my return. For now, here are some fabulous New Years Eve celebrations from around the world.
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Venture down under for one of the biggest and best firework shows in the world in Sydney Harbour. Get a front row seat by hiring a skipper and floating around on your own boat or reserve a table outside at one of the waterfront restaurants by the Bridge. If you can muster the courage the next day, strap on a harness and climb to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge where the fireworks extravaganza takes off.
GOA, INDIA: Join the hottest Bollywood stars & spend New Years Eve dining, drinking, & dancing under the stars on the white sand beaches. Keep in mind, the biggest parties tend to be around Anjuna, so if you want something a little more intimate, head south to Palolem.
RIO DE JANIERO: Head south where it’s the middle of summer and celebrate with over 2 million others who gather to watch the fireworks off of Copacabana Beach. Everything happens right there on Copacabana Beach, so dawn your flashiest whites (traditions say wearing white brings luck with the New Year) and head to the Beach. While every restaurant and hotel will have a special New Years Eve menu for diners, one of the most scrumptious is most certainly Copacabana Palace Hotel. The hotel also has a fabulous party that goes late into the night and has a great view of the firework extravaganza that lasts up to 15 minutes!
BERLIN: Celebrate “Silvester” (New Years Eve) in the capitol with one of the worlds largest firework shows in the world. The Germans are notorious for spending a pretty penny on their fireworks and it’s said that you can literally see them popping from anywhere in the whole city! The biggest party, however, is always at the grand Brandenburg Gate, where you’ll find, food, music, & fun as everyone celebrates. If you don’t want to join the huge crowds at Brandenburg Gate, venture over to Teufelsberg & Viktoriapark, two fabulous vantage points from which to watch the fireworks.
Wishing you all a wonderful New Year!
