Erin

An Aussie copywriter and translator in Chile. After living in Spain and majoring in the fine arts of tortilla-eating and arriving late, I moved to this skinniest of countries on the tail end of a year's backpacking in South America. I can't get enough of hiking, spicy food, and buying plane tickets to far-flung lands. (Also jazz. And brand-new notebooks. Oh, and avocados.) Look me up at erinfranceswalton.com
