Prepare thine passport. The travel experts at Lonely Planet just released their list of the top ten countries to visit in 2018, and the number one country is...Chile!

Pack your bags, seasoned traveler, because we’re headed to South America. With the Andes, Pacific Ocean and Atacama Desert, the country’s vastly diverse geography lends itself to all types of explorers. Also, we heard the capital, Santiago, has become a hub of trendy shops, restaurants and culture just waiting to be discovered. Finally, to top it all off, the country will celebrate 200 years of independence next year.

So bring on the pisco sours and empanadas...we’re headed to the land of poets.
