Week One Living the Viña Life

by Katie Baker

Hi friends! This is my very first blog post from Viña del Mar, Chile. The first week in this beautiful country has been quite a rollercoaster.

I am so excited to be able to be living a life I never thought I would have the opportunity to be a part of. I’m not going to lie and say that it has been easy, because it hasn’t. While I am doing all that I can and trying to soak up all the opportunities that come with studying abroad, there is also sadness. I have found that no matter how independent you are, you can still get homesick. I am enjoying so much the opportunity to visit different places, go to beach and all the yummy churros, but at the same time I realize how much I miss my loved ones that are still in the states.

We have only had one day of classes, so these upcoming weeks are going to be a real learning and growing opportunity. While I am quite nervous to be in a class with all Chileans, at the same time it is exciting too. It is quite a challenge, but I am up for it.

So, to sum up my first week in Chile, I have had sunburn, major blisters from all the walking, homesickness, but at the same time I’ve had the time of my life getting to know a great group of people in this beautiful place called Viña.

This rollercoaster of emotions I have been on is sure to pay off in these upcoming weeks of travel, excitement and learning. Can’t wait for the next opportunity to post about my trip!
