I wanted to share a great article I read today on PANK “professional aunt with no kids”. The article is about how career women who don’t have children of their own but who love to travel enjoy sharing the experience with young relatives or acquaintances.
Can’t wait to organize a trip to South America for such great and inspiring women!

How about applying these principles to your travel? It will keep you engaged, impressionable, relevant and constantly learning new things. Do you think Albert Einstein would agree?
Are you a fan of Poet Pablo Neruda? If you are in Chile, you should definitely take the time to visit his unique homes, which are open for tours. The homes reveal a man of surprising tastes and reflect on the country’s tumultuous past. We recommend visiting his Isla Negra home as that is the final resting place of Neruda and his wife, whose graves face the sea. If you want to learn more, read this excellent article by the LA Times : http://www.latimes.com/travel/la-tr-neruda-20110501,0,4236577.story
