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!

Vibin’ on Venice Beach

Life as a flight attendant definitely has it perks. Living on the road 98% of the time comes with a lot of quirks and you begin to live as full-time nomad. While most people become regulars at their favorite local restaurants or bars, I’ve become a regular at several places, they just happen to able all over the country.

In LA there is a quaint greek spot by my hotel and my favorite noodle bar down the street. New York has a sweet spot that serves the freshest dim sum in the heart of Flushing. I have my coffee place in San Diego and the fresh peanut butter stand from the Saturday market. The perfectly spiced kabab from my Lebanese treasure in Detroit. Our shuttle drivers  greet me with their warm smiles and tell me ‘it’s been too long.’  The den in Boston is stock piled for the crews that come by, equipped with la-z-boys and books just to make you feel at home. And how can I forget the bartenders in Baltimore that still remember you drink order even if it has been a few of weeks.

How can I explain all the beautiful that comes from being a regular in a situation that isn’t the most regular. All of the familiar faces and places are what make this job the best and unique career on the planet.

So when you finish work on Friday night and head out to meet your friends, I do the same. It just happens to be somewhere else. A few weeks ago we took our after work outing to Venice Beach for some Poke and carnival food. I’ll take the California sunshine all day — plus it keeps my hair perfect! Check out my latest video for some Cali INSPO or if you need a travel pick me up. When I have really long layovers I call them my f-acations (Fake Vacation) — because I get to play in new places — working seriously feels like a dream sometimes!
