Back in October I traveled to Chile and wrote about my experiences here (and here, here, and here) on the blog. Now, five months later, I'm finally getting around to writing about my trip on National Geographic Traveler's Intelligent Travel blog. Below is my first post, "Out of Office: Authentic Chile."
Traveler staffer Giovanna Palatucci writes about her trip to Chile, where she quickly discovered there's more to this South American country than the dry Atacama Desert to the north and the snowy peaks of Patagonia to the south. This is the first post about her trip.

However, I was here to explore its heartland and to try and get a bead on the culture.
I traveled to several of Chile's wine regions, each characterized by rolling valleys covered by miles and miles of grapevines.
