Ohmyitskye Goes to Chile

Happy Weekend! It is about time that I drop another video on you .. y’all ready? If you weren’t already itching to travel this one should do the trick! I grabbed my pal Lex and went to Chile last April to visit Santiago, San Pedro de Atacama and Valparaiso, all thanks to a badass deal on TravelPirates!

So v quick back story on my Chile trip — I came in from working an overnight flight and stumbled upon an error fare with Copa Airlines — who by the way are amazing to fly on –talk about throwing it back old school they had meals on meals on meals. I’m telling you they even fed me for my puny three hour flight down to Panama!

Back to the story, so I had been wanting to make the trek down to Argentina, but when I saw the numbers I couldn’t resist, so I jumped ship and purchased my fat round trip ticket for a whopping total of $190 dollars from DC to Santiago. WHAAAAT. Like how awesome?

When I began to start researching Chile and which direction to go because we were limited on time and because it is like the longest skinniest country ever, I realized how much this South American treasure had to offer. You can literally do anything there. You can get caught in a desert storm or go glacier hiking – eat seafood by the coast or stuff your face with the best steak and potatoes you’ve ever had — dive right into the heart of a city or choose a place that is a little more desolate. Like you can seriously do ANYTHING!

Pick your adventure and your direction and you are bound to have an incredible time!

So fast forward a few months after I purchased my ticket I mentioned to a few pals to keep their eye on Chile .. I predicted it would be the number one spot to travel to in 2018 .. dun dun dun dun! Low and behold! My trusty sources at Lonely Planet released their top countries to visit in 2018 and guess who made the number one spot .. You guessed it people. Mother – Freaking – CHILE! You can peep that list RIGHT HERE! Go. Pack your things and go.

Side note — this is my fourth year in a row predicting the number travel destination for the following year .. I think I may be on to something. Maybe i’ll set out my predictions for 2019 around April!

ANYHOOOO check out my video below! And if you havent already, make sure you like and subscribe to my Ohmyitskye YouTube Channel and stay tuned for more fun things happening all throughout this year!

Colombia not Columbia

It’s urgent that you visit Bogotá. Bogotá lives in Colombia. Colombia has things that are important. Things that are important include coffee, cheese, arepas, fried things, corn sent from heaven, a bread delivery service, etc. and that’s really all you need to know.. yes. Post over.

You should also know it is Colombia.. not Columbia. It’s not the sportswear or the University.. we are talking about the country people. Please do not get confused. Trust me when I tell you, I just spared you a very, abusive scolding, from an extremely, proud Colombian, at some point in your life and yes take note that most Colombians fall under the extremely proud category… And to answer your question, it’s true, I did receive that scolding at one point in time from a very proud Colombian, thanks Laura. Viva Colombia!
