An Aussie in Chile

The cultural insights of a young woman who moved to Santiago Chile to explore and learn.

Web Site:

You know, living in another country is kind of challenging. There's the new food, the new language, the new culture, the new music, the new transport, the new job, the new people... I mean, its a lot to take in. But if its so hard then why do people do it? What makes people look for the opportunity to change their whole world and start fresh?

Obviously there are a bunch of different reasons and it would be boring to give you all the answers right away. Instead, I hope to share some of my thoughts on the subject with you through this blog.

This blog is going to be primarily about keeping track of experiences, revelations and learning in general which will all take place in and around the South American country of Chile. So let me introduce myself...

I am Australian, have lived in China for three years and now have started a new chapter of my life in Santiago, Chile. After only six weeks, I have already learnt so much from this country and its people. I have been bombarded with cultural differences I didn't see coming and I am enthusiastic to tell people about everything.
