Looking for people who want to share experiences crossing ChileHey everybody!
My name is Katharina and I am a student from Austria. I am here in Santiago de Chile doing an internship for two months. Afterwards I planned to spend one month visiting the whole country. ( or better to say: as much as I can do, as one month is not a lot... ) As I came here alone I still don't know with whom I'm going to travel and I know that travelling alone is not always that much fun (and sometimes being a group even makes travelling easier) so I am asking now if anybody wants to share some experiences in Chile between the 10th of december and the 7th of january. I am an open minded person. I like to share experiences but I don't always have to talk.
Until now I haven't planned my trip at all but I don't want it to be a luxury trip (I even don't have the money to so something like this) ... more an adventure trip. I wouldn't mind staying in a tent and cooking my own dinner in midle of the nature for example. :-) I like to visit the north as well as the south and I was planning to spend either christmas or new years eve at the beach. Thats all I can say for no. I really hope you would answer this and we can get in touch... ah by the way. I speak english ( as you may imagine after reading this text) as well as spanish and german. Right now I am trying to understand chilenian spanish ;-).

I'm plan to travel through Chile and will be arriving in Santiago on the 10th December and fly back to London on the 3 or 4th January (need to check this), i would like to go down to the South but the more i read the more it sounds like you will need to camp and dont really want to carry a tent but it would be easier to share the load with a second person. I also read that in some areas you can hire tents and camp equipement??? I haven't done much planning myself but have just started reading up on the country and it seems that to me that it would be quiet hard to see the whole of the country in just a month (not sure what you think) but would be more than happy to meeting Santiago and travel down south with you and see where it takes us, i'm also on a budget but wouldnt mind mixing camping and hosteling.
As you might be able to tell by now i'm english but unfortunatly i dont have any spanish but hoping to pick up a few words before i depart from London but not sure how much i will learn in such a short space of time and a heavy work load from how until then. I'm easy going and like to travel and meet people, so often when i travel alone i have a rough idea of where i want to go but usually leave it pretty flexiable so that if i meet some interesting people my plans usually change if i put in too much planning :-)
Camping and cooking out in the wild sound likes a cool adventure to me, so if you want a travelling pal for the south of chile lets meet up in Santiago for a chat if you like or email me on your throught or any good information you have found out about travelling in Chile and i will do the same.

2Hi Katharina!! I'm Mara and I'm from Spain, also student. I have just arrived to Santiago and I am all by myself too. I'm planning to travel south all december and maybe the first week of January too. I am also looking for someone to travell with, because as you said, travelling alone is not very fun. The route that I'd like to do is Valdivia, Osorno and then Puerto Natales and Puerto Varas. I have a few contacts that can host me in these places so, if you want to join me, let me know!!
