By the time we took these photos, we were about one month into our travels. With that said, I have never been one to become homesick, but when on the road for an extended period of time, it is hard not to. Sometimes I miss the comfort of having more than one pillow to prop me up while sitting in bed, or maybe, I am missing Mexican food one day or maybe it is just missing knowing where to go and how to get to places. Well my friends, I have a remedy for this homesickness!
To remedy homesickness while traveling, if timing and proximity permits, go back to somewhere you recently have been. While in Chile, I am sure you found it pretty obvious how much we loved Valparaíso. It felt like an edgier version of San Francisco. So while in Santiago, I was feeling nostalgic for familiarity. So, Ryan and I decided to take a day trip back to Valparaíso.
The bus ride to Valparaíso from Santiago ranges about $4-15 USD each way depending on the time, and can take around 1:30 to get there. So from a budget and time perspective, it was completely doable.
It was such a treat to return to – at this point in the trip – my favorite city on our adventure. So to impress my favorite city, I decided to pull out some of my cute packed away clothes, and return with my Sunday best. So I hope you love my leopard flats, because wow, you are going to see them a lot during these fashion posts!
