Today, I came across an article in the National Geographic Traveler Magazine about the World’s Best Trips in 2013. Valparaíso, Chile! My eyes lit up when I saw the Chilean port city was among the Top 20 must-see picks of the season. Especially given the fact I hold so many dear memories of this place I visited as part of my Round-The-World-Trip in 2011: Joining a Chilean Cooking Class with (in)famous local cook & tour guide Boris. Marvelling at some great graffiti art in the centre of town. Enjoying a romantic seaside walk next to an amazing coastline scenery. Meeting your loved one after three and a half months on the road travelling solo … :).
Here is my Valparaíso for you to enjoy!
Learning how to cook typical Chilean Food
Thank God we found this flyer. Advertised at a winery some 800 kilometres south of Valparaíso, I immediately thought: We must do this. So I simply booked online at www.cookingclasseschile.cl and offered Markus to become a Chilean cook for the day. To this day, it has proven worthwhile: We still have a shaker at home we use for making Pisco Sour, a favorite Peruvian & Chilean drink we learned to make that day in Valparaíso.
