Chile is the second Country in South America on my big trip. I barely made it over the border, before they closed it due to the Corona Virus Mid March 2020. 🦠

    Adiós, Sofia!

    July 10 in Chile ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    And today, it was time to say Goodbye and Adiós to Sofia! 😢
    Even tho I know that saying goodbye is always a sad thing, I hope to see Sofia again one day in Mexico! 💃

    Girl, thank you soo much for the wonderful time together at the MUFFIN hostel, the laughs, the tears we shared, the amazing food - Arepas, Gnocchis, Shakshuka, just to name a few! 🤤

    Sofia will first fly to Miami, the same flight that Mariel and I will take next week on our way to the Dominican Republic.
    Then she wants to see her sisters, family and later move to Mexico.
    And since my plan is to go to Mexico too, the chances are really high that we will meet again! ❤️

    Take good care, Amiga 😘

    Au Revoir, Tristan

    July 9 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    The next one of the Frenchis is leaving! 💔
    This morning before 10 am, Tristan left the MUFFIN to travel back to France. 😢

    He left us a note on the board, said goodbye to everone (especially to Sofia 😍) and then started his long travel back (over Frankfurt in Germany).

    He arrived safe and sound at his home and already sent us a picture together with his family, outside in the Garden.

    I hope to see you again one day Tristan, it was a pleasure to meet you, many thanks for all the fun moments together, the good food, also the french classes, the talks and of course our kitchen towel fights!! 😂😂😂

    Au Revoir, David

    July 3 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    The next of the Muffineros Survivors is leaving: David is flying back to France! 😢

    He will stay one night in the capital Santiago with a friend and then take the plane the next day. First to Sao Paolo in Brazil, then Frankfurt in Germany and afterwards to Paris in France. 🛬
    What a trip! 😳 But I guess that is traveling during Corona 🙄

    As a last good bye, I made a no-bake cake with a strawberry and cookie filling and used chocolate and almonds for the decoration around. 🍪🍫
    Actually I wanted to write something on top, but the chocolate letters didn't get hard enough to remove them from the paper. 🤔
    So I IMPROVISED ☝️ and used some left over Pomegranate seeds to form the word "BYE" instead. Sofia helped me to arrange the seeds with chopsticks. 🥢😁

    After eating the cake, we gathered at the door, where David hold a last speech, gave everyone a big hug (I saw some tears here 😭) and left the hostel with Bugra to go to the bus terminal. 🚌

    We all followed his last steps in Valparaiso from the windows of the MUFFIN Hostel and saw how Bugra said his final goodbye to David. 👋

    It's been some days now, David arrived in France all safe & sound and is probably already planning his next trip 🧭😉👍

    Thank you for the last month together, for the good and bad moments, the help when I messed up a dessert, letting me watch TopChef in french with you and Tristan, the Caramel, the hot chocolate, the delicious dinners, the french class on the terrace, the songs you played on the guitar and much more. 😂😂😂

    Tout le meilleur & prenez soin de vous, David! 😘

    Hostel under water

    June 29 in Chile ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    It was raining heavily around noon today! In between it even hailed!! 😱

    I just finished my only lessons online when it started. It rained in the kitchen under the door and on the side where a glass in the window is missing.

    We immediately got towels to stuff the hole and buckets and mops to wipe up the water. 🌊

    The water ran down the walls and dripped from many spots inside the hostel, we set up pots and moved the furniture. 🌧️

    In the living room a large glass is also missing in the window and a lot of water came in. We covered the electronics with a plastic bag and hoped for the best.

    Tristan and Sofia were outside to buy some things. Luckily, they could hide inside a store and didn't get that wet!! 🏃🏃🏽‍♀️

    We are waiting for everything to dry, outside is the perfekt weather now, with a lot of sun and blue sky ... 🤷🏼‍♀️😐🙄

    Last BBQ together

    June 27 in Chile ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    We had our last night-BBQ all together, since David will leave next week. And the week afterwards Sofia and (maybe) Tristan! 🤭🤫 Tristans flight back to France got canceled twice already - but that's a different story ...

    The time together in the MUFFIN hostel is coming to an end and therefore we celebrate our times together even more! 🥳

    Bugra started the bbq with Choripan and bread on the grill and Mariel made Rotkohl German Style earlier to go on top of it all 🌭 - DELICIOUS as always ❤️

    I will really miss those get-togethers out on the terrace 😢

    Tristans B-DAY

    June 23 in Chile ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    Today on the 23rd, Tristan is turning 23! 🙊
    Time to celebrate this special day together. 🥳

    David made pancakes in the morning 🥞 and we all had breakfast together, until I had to leave and tutor German classes. 🤓

    Meanwhile, Sofia and Kait organized a scavenger hunt (Schnitzeljagd) for Tristan. They hid notes in the hostel and Tristan had to follow the trail. 🐾
    Step by step, he found a mask, money and, as a final task, should go out with Sofia to buy alcohol for the bday party in the evening.
    We just didn't noticed that the kiosk on the other side of the street was closed. 🙈

    Later that day, we played Twister that Kait & Sofia designed (it's hard to see the colour on the pictures) and we had so much fun!! 😂

    Tristan had wanted empanadas for dinner. We ate together and played other party games afterwards - I don't go much into details, just say balloons 😂🙈😉

    Last but least, we had a no bake birthday cake that I made earlier. Tristan wanted to blow out the candles, but Sofia was accidentally faster. 😂😂😂

    Tristan - HAPPY BIRTHDAY - and may you have a wonderful year without Corona 😑☝️

    Roof Top Party

    June 21 in Chile ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    We started the Sunday Funday at 4.30 pm already with a nice afternoon cocktail! 🥃

    Later that day, we could convince Bugra to go on the roof! 🤓
    It is not so safe, but we promised to be really careful and keep our drinks on the terrace!
    And it's Southamerica ... what is safe here anyways?! 🤷🏼‍♀️

    One person was holding the ladder and then the another person could climb up.

    I was the last and took Tristans phone and a speaker with me. So the party could continue on THE ROOF!! 🥳🥳🥳

    Afterwards, we ordered chicken at KFC, because Schmariel Mariel was too lazy to prepare the Pumpkin Soup and this kind of food fits better to being drunk anyways ... 😍😋🍗

    Good Bye, Alex

    May 18 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    After more than 2 month together, Alex made the decision to travel back home to Switzerland. 😢

    We all knew that he had to go home ONE DAY, but then just a few days ago at the breakfast table, he announced that it would be today, the 18th of May ... 😵

    The embassy chartered a flight from Santiago to Europe. The next days he planned everything together with the embassy. He asked for busses to go to Santiago and bought a ticket for the bus at 2.15 pm.

    We all had the chance to write or draw something in his travel book/diary. 🧡
    And as a final Good Bye, we gave him a little glass filled with the sand from the beach of VALPARAISO 🏖️

    Around 2 pm, he said Good Bye to everybody and left for his bus to Santiago with the final destination to Switzerland. Btw, his family has no idea that he is coming back already! 😂

    Good Bye Alex and many thanks for the wonderful days together, the laughs, the drinks, the games and your delicious desserts! 😘
    We are gonna miss you here ...

    Drunk Beach Day

    May 15 in Chile ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    The weather changed from bitter cold to sweet sunshine all day with a beautiful blue sky.
    So we decided to go to the beach 🏖️

    Mariel and Bugra went first and bought some beers, the rest caught up later with lunch.
    On our way, we bought a tequila bottle and took some cans of soda water with us.

    First we eat our chicken and vegetables at the beach, afterwards the girls went for a quick jump into the (still ass cold) ocean 🌊🌊🌊

    We drank the tequila, watched the sunset and even saw a japanese space station 🤔🙄 (not a 100% sure tho)

    At one moment I was so tipsy that I attacked Mariel. Definetly a bad decision, since she grew up with 2 brothers and knows how to defend herself 😵😂😂😂

    My bad - the beach fight was fun tho 🧡

    BBQ with dance party

    May 14 in Chile ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    I like our BBQs outside on the terrace, especially when the weather is nice & the mood is right! 🥳

    Tonight we had delicious meat, prepared by Bugra on the grill and afterwards stayed a little bit on the terrace to talk, dance and drink.

    The cats Luna and Hermano are always around ... these little cuddle balls 😸😸
    Well, Hermano got a wet ass lately, so we kinda keep him on distance 🙄

    It's so cute how in particular Luna tries to sit on our laps, when we sit outside playing Blackjack, Cards Against Humanity or just chat about life in general. 😋
