After the smogginess of Santiago we were keen for some fresh sea breezes, so we headed to Viña del Mar, which is a few hours away on the coastline. We decided to stay put here for the final 2 months of our trip (with one final excursion to come before we fly home).
We were lucky to find a beautiful apartment 5 minutes away from the beach, with lovely sunset views each night. Nelly and Clementine started another pre-school, and as usual they flourished and thrived amongst their new friends. In fact, some weekends they actually complained that they'd rather be in school than hanging with us on the beach...
We occupied our time by starting work on some new side-projects, snoozing on the beach, and sampling the local restaurants a few times a week.
All in all, it was a fantastic spot to spend some time for the last stretch of our 12 month adventure.
