Viña del Mar, Chile (Coast)


Joel, Laura and I headed to Viña del Mar on Chile’s coast the first weekend they were in town. It was a nice change to get away from the pollution and crowds of Santiago. I had a really good run along the coast, even with a massive hang over. The town also has a very nice casino, we didn’t end up gambling but we had some nice drinks with a friendly bartender.

A lot of these pictures are of these weird cable cars (funicular railways) that run up the steep slopes. And then the view from the top of a port / small navy base. The funicular railway we tried opened in 1883! Can you imagine how mind blowing this thing was in 1883! The USA was still fighting the American Indian War in the 1880s.

This is bwb’s personal blog so he can share his thoughts with the world, however scary or silly they might be. Plus family and friends can track what I am up too, and where I am in the world.

I am pretty simple. I love Mangos. I love the ocean, although mostly at sunset as I’m a ginger. I love to travel, eat exotic food, read, and use my imagination. I love creating and developing ideas into businesses, understanding how all businesses work, and building cool stuff. I am a globalist and see the entire world as my responsibility and playground. And, I am married to an amazing woman who makes life even more fun :)! And, we are now the proud parents of Calico Jack :).
