oh goodness is this ever scary, i leave Chile in three days and arrive home in four. it is so strange to think that all of this is coming to an end, that soon i’ll be saying my goodbyes and getting on a plane. That soon i’ll be able to hug my mom, and my brothers and my best friends and my dog. Oh my goodness my dog, i get to see my dog! I don’t know how to explain this, because it’s the strangest thing. I feel happy and sad at the same time. I know i’m going to miss so many things here but i miss so much from home that will be incredible to be able to have again.
deep breaths. i’ll figure it all out
a few pictures from our recent trip to easter island! this was an sbsolutely incredible week. we saw amazing sights, did great things and got to know fantastic people
i really hope to go back the island someday, it was just so beautiful
I called my mom this morning to say happy mother’s day. yes, that’s right, a real phone call. i had to figure out how to do it over skype and stuff and it was really complicated but i figured it out. It was really strange talking to her, and i have to admit i started to cry. i’d forgotten the way she answers the phone, which has always seemed really funny and formal to me, and it made me laugh this morning.
I miss her a lot, she’s always been an amazing mom. But i’ll be home soon and get to see her again :)
Today i also celebrated mother’s day for my host mom too, i made her a handmade card and brought her her favorite breakfast in bed, which she really liked.
That’s a bit of hard question to answer, because there’s a lot of things that made me want to come to Chile. Firstly, i wanted to learn Spanish, and go to south america, and then Chile jst seem to draw me. It’s so interesting and different, with the mountains, the ocean, the desert, the patagonia. And it’s also different from the rest of south america, which interested me too.
And well, it’s chile!
a few pictures of Osorno and surrounding areas (including going up an active volcano!) from my trip there to visit my friend Marla!
sunset on Lago Llanquihue, the lake on which rests the town where i visited my friend

my exchange kitten! A friend of mine’s cat had kittens and he gave me one as a present!
've had him for about a month now and his name is mickey meow.
i thought it would be funny to tell my mom he was coming home with me to Canada….but she didn’t go for it. Luckily my host family agreed to keep him after i leave
