Chile A Land of Plenty

Written by
Due to its long and narrow shape, Chile is a land of extremes. Stretching from the Andes Mountains to the very southern tip of the continent, each region of Chile is unique and full of natural beauty.

In the middle, the climate can fall anywhere between the two. So for travelers looking to get the most out of their vacation, Chile is the place to go. From vineyards, to hip cities,…

More For My Bucket List

Written by
While reading the stories in this issue of JAX FAX, I added a few more destinations to my “Travel Bucket List.” These are the journeys for someday - places I’d really like to see at some point in the future. As for today, I am too busy with work, the kids, the house and those countless other reasons we put off the things we really desire. As you might imagine, being the editor of JAX FAX and reading so many fantastic articles every month, my travel bucket list grows longer with each issue.
