I am 17 months, it is winter in my hometown, January, and we are about to go to Chile for 3 months period. I have relatives there, and my daddy is gonna work there, so we have lot of things to do. This is first time for us to move somewhere for such a long period so it is a challenge for all of us. Good thing is that in Chile is summer for the moment and it is gonna be nice and warm until we leave. That means that we will have less things to pack with us. Not big jumpsuits or jackets, just light clothes (we were completely wrong but we don’t know that yet). It is necessary to make health insurance for me, because I am small and you never know what can happen in other country. In matter of fact, as my parents are planning some road trips we will all make health insurance. 3 months is long period, but we will move around, visit relatives, some friends will join us on the way, and it will be interesting.
Flight to Chile is biggest I ever had, through London and Sao Paolo in Brazil, it lasts 18 hours with stops. So my parents should be ready for all kind of unexpected and expected situations. Taking toys, stories and iPad to the plane is a must. As well milk and food for me, because I need to eat.
Ok, lets go!
Let me sleep first.
Let me sleep more. ( I slept a lot)
Ok, geographically we are in Vina del Mar. Here, more or less.
This is view from our balcony. It is not promising at all.
This is my tia Silvi and my primo Mariano! We just met!
Mariano has little animal!
Very second day daddy took as at his friend’s place, with kids and playground.
While they was preparing food
I was explaining some things to this little fellow
And to this person as well
And then suddenly.. I was hit by jet leg!
Luckily, there is always place for me to sleep!
Next days we explored Valparaiso… And food market.
Mommy loves this market even though is messy and a bit stinky.
We went to the beach as well.. I must say that we expected sun and summer.
Chileans like to enjoy it like this as well. I got cold after this.
After some time mommy’s and daddy’s friends Pavle and Iva joined us.
They will live with us and spend some time with us here, exploring Chile with us.
I like Chile’s and Valpo’s lifestyle. It feels like home
And home, actually I am always with this guy, Pave. For a moment he is my best friend.
When we go out he takes care of me.
We go out a lot. This is Playa Acapulco. It is packed with people.
But it is not that hot outside, so we are just walking around and not swimming.
We are walking all around Viña del Mar.
In the meantime mommy and daddy are having fun. They like to cook food.
And to eat it after.
They are buying all kind of strange stuff on the street.
I like to eat just some food, in this case bread.
And sushi rice as well.
I love all kind of rice, and this sushi is fine as well.
We did one ride as well even my mommy didn’t wanted to do it.
She was talking about torture of the animals
I found it strangely interseting.
I like my friend Pave. We are having lots of fun.
Every day, night and morning, with all kind of toys.
And finally some really nice weather made us come to the beach for swimming.
I cant swim, but even if I know how to do it it is forbidden to do it here.
This is my first ocean!
Too much sun and sand really exhausted me.
And when I’m gone, I’m gone.
I just love balls. Chileans know the secret.
We are on Reñaca beach, this one is the best one and the most beautiful.
But again, not for swimming.
Huge sea, has huge things in it. They told me that Chileans eat this one.
Psssst! Daddy is on the business trip and everywhere around thinks that Pave is my daddy. We are fine with that.
I am full of sand. That will have some consequences that we didn’t know.
This are the consequences. I am bitten by fleas that live in beach sand.
And for a moment our apartment is full of them. Las pulgas! We had long battle but we defeated them on the end. Next time we will know better.
We did lot of lunches with family as well.
I love Valparaiso, it is like colorful cartoon.
Gangs of Valparaiso.
Seriously, those are real houses?! It is cartoon, I told you!
I spent almost a month here with family and friends. Soon we are gonna hit the road and go south and north. I am ready.
