Bettina from Switzerland, living in Chile

Hello everyone :sunflower: My name is Bettina, I`m originaly from the German part of Switzerland. 14 years ago I left Switzerland with my family, we emigrated to Coyhaique in the south of Chile. I speak German, English, Spanish and still remember a bit of French unfortunately I mix up the French with Spanish. Before I got married I used to travel a lot.
Speaking different languages helped me a lot then and now here in Patagonia. So in summer I work as a tourguide with the cruise liners in English and German. I enjoy chatting with people from all over the world, tell them about nature and culture in Patagonia. At the same time, I learn a lot about other places and customs. It keeps me in touch with the world, since we live either at the end or at the beginning of the world :wink: .
Last year I started to teach German to teenagers here in Coyhaique. I really enjoy the classes with them.
I started to give Babymassage classes here in the south two years ago. Our familybusines now is farming. We breed Angus cattle and have a lot of hens to sell “Happy Eggs”.
I love to explore our region and to discover new beautiful places in my free time with my family. My hobbys are travelling, spending time with my family, reading a good book, meeting up with friends, watching good movies and a lot more!

Welcome, Bettina! I live in Concepción, Chile. It looks like soon there will be a small community of Chatterbug tutors in Chile :wink:
Until now, I haven´t been in Coyhayque, but Patagonia is very beautiful! In 2015 I went to Torres del Paine and I would love to go back some day…
