Trip to Chile: Quick Recap of an Amazing Experience

Posted by on Nov 26, 2012 | 4 Comments

I spent the last few days with the Merrell Chile team, and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I’ll be writing a full recap in the days to come, including a recap of the Bareform clinic I held, our run in the Andes, and our Crossfit clinic. Here’s a recap video:

Shelly and I have kicked around the idea of living outside the US for awhile, and I think this could be the exact destination we’d love. The country is basically a more laid-back version of California mixed with the outdoor potential of Colorado… without the crowds. Mix in a safe environment, stable economy, and low-cost phenomenal wine and you have a recipe for utopia. I met some awesome people that further fueled my desire to get back there as soon as possible.

Anyone ever been there? If so, leave a comment. I’d love to hear your impressions!

    I spent a month in Chile during my junior year of high school. I loved it! We spent time in Santiago, Vina del Mar, and Melecoton (unsure of spelling).

    I want to go back and live there so badly. I disagree with Bare Lee about the swimming. We spent time in the ocean at Vina del Mar and I did not find it to be cold at all.

    Yah, great country. You’re never far from the coast or mountains. Got the desert in the north, and snow-capped mountains in the south, and lots of great food, wine, and people in between.

      One problem: the water is too cold to swim in.

    Wow, that is beautiful. I watched a documentary about a guy who walked the entire length of the Amazon. The first hour or so was spent in the Andes, and it looked very similar to the area you were in. I’m glad you liked Chile. I will definitely add it to my list of places to visit.
