A Taste of Peru

With only 48 hours in Peru, we had very little time to waste. So to make the most of it, we made reservations at the fifth best restaurant in the world - Central Restaurant. We don't go to sit-downs often due to conflicting potty/diaper/food/snack/food-throwing/tantrum/socks/nap/etc schedules, so we were really living on the edge here. We [...]

Chile with Kids: Visiting Torres Del Paine

Viña Del Mar is a somewhat resorty and way-less-sketchy-than-neighboring-Valparaiso beach town. The gorgeous sunset views from our Airbnb were unparalleled. The apartment [...]

Hand of the Desert in Atacama

Visiting Chile's Atacama Desert With Kids Before leaving the Atacama desert, we had one last stop to make- and not an easy stop by any means. This stop was more of a 4 hour drive, 1 night, and 3 hour drive back detour. Pretty sure it took me longer to force Danny's hand on this [...]

Chile with Kids: The Lagunas of the Atacama Desert

Visiting Chile's Atacama Desert With Kids These are some of the other sites in Chile's Atacama Desert we visited with our kids during our stay in San Pedro.
