West Coast web media princess, and the latest Jaunted Embed, Shira Lazar is making her way through Chile on a top secret travel mission. She will be posting daily for the next week, in hopes of creating a glorious on-the-fly travel guide using as much point oh social webbing as she can. Enjoy.

From busy cities to laid back rural communities set against snow-capped mountains we were able to see a ton of Chile in one short week. Throughout our travels, we were also amazed at how friendly all the locals were, counting those we had only previously met online and who quickly became our personal guides and new friends. We are grateful for all of this, so we want to share some tips in how to create your own local Chilean adventure, oh that and we want to show you some videos that might not have made the daily post cut.

After a couple of days of wining and dining during a press trip, we felt more than half way to putting our freshman fifteen back on. So there should be no surprise we were excited to see some physical activity on our schedule in Patagonia. On tap: kayaking and rock climbing!

We had walked the streets of the hyperactive Valparaiso and partied it up in urban restobars with Chileans, but now it was time to ditch the Converse for some hiking boots and get down and dirty in Patagonia.

So the economy sucks, you've lost your job or perhaps, unemployment is in your near future. The time couldn’t be better to get re-inspired, think outside the box and take that leap towards a new career path, er, or at least something to get you far far away from the current U.S. depression.

One word: Gaucho.

Gaucho. It is the new Plastics.

During our travels across Chile we have encountered the Gaucho up close and personal and we think becoming a Gaucho might just get you off the Prozac, or at least off the government's teat.

As we approached our first day in Chile’s Mediterannean heartland, Valparaiso, we left our memories of $4 non-fat, soy, triple lattes and frappucinos behind.

It was 10am on a Saturday, and we sat waiting in a booth at the charming but empty Café El Desayunador (above) for two local Valpo bloggers we’ve never met in person. Desayunador means "breakfaster" in Spanish and according to my email acquaintances, it’s pretty much the only spot that opens early and actually “does breakfast”. Most cafes just offer media lunas (sweet pastries).

For some reason people love penguins. It’s a fascination that transcends generations, genders and nationalities. It couldn’t have been more evident than with the success of the 2005 award-winning documentary March of the Penguins, which was made for $8 million and then went on to reap over $77 million in profits in the US alone.

Super Bowl Sunday. It might as well be a national holiday in the US of A. Families and friends get together to eat, drink and watch some good ‘ol football. But what if you happen to be in foreign lands during this day of patriotic sportsmanship and beer guzzling?

It’s a tragic reality for some, but it might just happen to you one day. Online options aside, here’s our advice on how to celebrate and watch the big game, even if you happen to be in a far, far, far off land.

After enjoying some great Chilean wines in Santiago, it was time for us to venture to the source and visit some wineries only an hour away in the San Antonio Valley. The views were picturesque- rows of vineyards along rolling hills all within sight of the Pacific Ocean. Incredible! As you can guess, the location of the Pacific greatly influences the wine being produced.

Social Travel: 24 Hours in Santiago, Part II

Fair warning, this nightlife coverage came after flying and not sleeping for 24 hours. We don't recommend you try this at home, but it's probably worth the lack of sleep if you're a virgin to South America and you only have one night in Santiago, Chile.

Social Travel: 24 Hours in Santiago

We had one day in Santiago, the capital of Chile and the city where a third of the country’s population (that’s 6 million out of the total 16 million) live. We were jetlagged and a bit loopy, but that wouldn’t stop us from hitting up as many spots we could in 24 hours. Below we have created a list of what we did with 24 hours in Santiago, hoping maybe you can crib something from it when you find yourself wondering these cobblestone streets. The key to our jaunt? Hooking up with local bloggers to get the ultimate insider’s perspective.

Getting The LAN Bump To Biz Class

So my Chile trip began late due to LA traffic (not because of my personal tardiness of course).

Typically you are supposed to arrive to the airport at least 2 hours before an international flight. I arrived a bit less an hour and a half before my LAX--Lima(LIM)--Santiago(SCL) .

A Tale of Multiple Packing Personalities

Our itinerary for Chile is as follows: Santiago, Valparaiso, Punta Arenas and Patagonia.

What does that mean in terms of packing? Expect three climates in the course of a week. What does that mean for a traveler who’s a chick or an over packer (and you know who you are)? Massive indecisiveness and bringing what feels like a wardrobe for every season!
