The inquisitive voice in our heads has been chanting something recently. “Go south, go south” it shouts. The Southern Hemisphere is calling us, loudly, and it’s getting hard to resist. Perhaps it’s the untapped vibrance from cities like Valparasío, Chile that we want to discover. Or, the intrigue of oasis like Huachachina, Peru that need to be experienced. Maybe it’s the hemisphere’s long love affair with nature and its conscious preservation of ancient crafts. And even though half of the world is experiencing summer, us Northerners are mid winter and dreaming of snow.
Here’s where we’d go to hit the slopes and chalets below the equator. Get ahead of it, and start planning a summer trip to one of these snow capped escapes today.
