Chile – probably the most diverse country on our planet!
When the Creator looked at his world, which was built in seven days, he discovered remnants everywhere: pieces of jungle, patches of desert, waterfalls, copper mountains, volcanoes, fjords, hot springs and glaciers. At his behest, the angels poured all of this on a narrow, long strip of land between a sky-high mountain range and the endless ocean.
This is how Chile came into being, according to an old legend. The most diverse country on our planet offers you countless opportunities for exciting vacation work, or for work and travel.
