New Year’s Eve Plans 2023-2023
Hopefully next year we won’t be doing virtual new years eve parties but will be back to the real world. If you’re a forward planner like we are and are planning a trip to Chile next year, I highly recommend spending it in the Lake District in Patagonia. It’s one of the most scenic places we’ve spent it and is great for couples and families of all ages.
