To Chile We Go: Three Reasons Why Spontaneous Travel is Necessary

Things that make me happy. Buying spontaneous plane tickets to Chile for ten days.

Other things that make me happy. Somehow managing to convince my family, who by the way has only done light international travel, to join me on my excursion to South America at 5am last week. Needless to say my convincing skills are pretty impressive right now.

Can we take a second to first shout out the most incredible travel group on Facebook Girls Love Travel (GLT) (Yes, this group is only for the ladies) and also Travel Pirates because holy cow.. without these two resources I would have spent over $1000 on a roundtrip flight to the Southest of the South instead of $171.

**Travel Pirates had a wild deal the other morning! All last month I was working redeye flights, so basically I was a nocturnal human..which is pretty much just my natural state of being anyways. Back to the point, I got to my house around 5:00am and was scrolling through the inter-webs (aka GLT) and came across a flight deal for a roundtrip ticket to Santiago, Chile for $160 ROUNDTRIP .. yes you read that correctly. Roundtrip tickets to Chile for $160. So naturally I panicked/blacked out and bought a round trip ticket to Chile for my birthday. As I was booking this trip, I figured I should let my mother know. Who by the way has accepted the fact that I am borderline psychotic, when it comes to leaving on a whim.

Little did I know this lady aka mom of mine, was feeling just as psychotic as me and booked tickets for the rest of my family. So yes. The Belli family is going to Chile.. Still convinced she was half asleep when she booked this ticket. But that’s okay because the damage is already done. Yippee! **
