Anna Kaminski is a travel writer for Rough Guides, Lonely Planet, and Trailblazer. She is the coauthor of The Rough Guide to Chile, a country she has been enamored of ever since becoming hooked on Isabel Allende's novels and Pablo Neruda's poetry while doing a degree on the history and literature of Latin America. Since then, she has traveled the entire length of Chile on several occasions—for research and pleasure—though it's the frozen south that entices her the most. She considers Patagonia her second home and finds herself returning year after year. To learn more, follow @ACKaminski on Twitter.
