Santiago, Chile 2009

2015-01-07 10.11.21 1These are some of my favourite moments from my trip to Santiago, Chile (and Isla Negra) back in 2009. I never got to share the pictures on the net. Six years after the trip is more than enough time to realize what a great adventure this was.

I was using a SONY Cybershot camera. Left the bigger camera back home. Not the wisest decision at the time, but at least I was packing light.

The people, the places and the history took a part of me. Or perhaps I left it there? I hope to visit Chile once more in the future.

By remembering the past we can understand the present. One should never loose the sense wonder. ♥

  1. I’ve always wanted to go to Chile because it’s such a beautiful Country plus a lot of good Electro bands arose from there. I think that a must have on my dream home wish list is that spider web wrought iron fencing you saw over there. 😉

    I’m happy that your sharing these because sometimes memories so special as these get lost in time your Cybershot did a pretty good job I remember when that camera was so popular and everyone I knew wanted it including myself. Victor and you look so young!

    You capture Chile beautifully I love all the photographs especially the one of the clock tower and the leaves on the side. I hope to you get to go to Chile again soon. <3
