Iguassu Argentina

19th June 2014 I can’t believe I left it so long to write about Iguassu Falls, our last stop in Argentina. It was such an amazing, indescribable experience that I’ve been finding myself more and more reluctant to attempt to put it into words, and by now it has already…

Fuerza Bruta

Fuerza Bruta, Buenos Aires

15th June 2014 We finished off our five days in Buenos Aires with a bang – more of a nuclear explosion, really – that was completely fitting with our extraordinary few days there of excitement and new experiences: the Fuerza Bruta show at the cultural centre in Recoleta Park. Some…

Bikes and Wine, Mendoza (6th June)

Mendoza Wine Tour

I’ve already mentioned our five days in beautiful, peaceful Mendoza, right in the heart of Argentina’s wine-region, but I purposefully left the highlight for a post all on it’s own! On the Friday, we packed a lunch and took a bus outside of town to Maipu, a small neighbourhood packed full…

Our first stop was the popular northern town of Salta, a…
