So we're roughly six weeks away from our trip to Chile. We will be there right now looking at 10-12 days witha total of 16 days off from work. saturday we went and applied for new passports. It was $130 each. There's also a visitors entry fee into Chile. It's $130 each also but issues you a card that is valid the life of the passport. We'll be able to return to Chile and enter fee free for the next ten years. So we're at $520 now on the costs. Our employer is a big deal cargo moving company and has perks with all major airlines. We can travel standby almost anywhere we want for a heavily discounted price. We were quoted earlier this week tickets prices for ATL-SCL-ATL at $342 + $18 process fee. so for both of us we're traveling roundtrip at $720; bringing the total costs upto $1240. Staying with my family in Chile at no expense to us and my grandfather is picking us up in Santiago to bring us to Coquimbo and will also return to Santiago upon our return. We're looking at minimal expenses in Chile due to such a great family I have there whom will loan us a truck to get around alone along with all the family activities and sight seeing we'll be doing with family. We will be having such a great time. I'm arranging possibly playing or at the least going to watch a rugby game while in Chile as well as playing golf there. We'll be doing alot of hiking and nature related activities. I can't wait to go!
