Mar de las Pampas | Argentina

The major highlight of my trip to Argentina was the trip down to the coast, specifically Mar de las Pampas which is about a 6 hour bus ride <north?> of Buenos Aires. We (Florencia and I) left Buenos Aires around 10 am on Thursday morning and arrived in Ville Gesell (more on that in a … Continue reading »

Back to Buenos Aires

Truth be told, I just could not keep myself away. For the past 9 months, I have been floating around South Africa and Namibia. Found the most awesome job in Swakopmund as a software developer and life is going swell at the moment. Picked up running as my sporting activity of choice and trying to … Continue reading »

Salta – Rafting, Zip Lining and Horses

On leaving Mendoza, there were two more stops on our itinery. Cafayate and somewhere of insiginificance. Spur of the moment on behalf of Jono our driver a question was raised.

Mendoza – Wine Capital of South America

Mendoza, the wine capital of South America and producer of some of the best wines in the world. We spent two days in the Hostel Independencia and enjoyed lots of steak and wine (in my case, beer mostly). I have never been a wine drinker as it takes me back to the “poor” student days … Continue reading »

Bariloche – Argentina’s Switzerland

It is as if a tornado ripped up a city in Switzerland and dumped it in Argentina. Everything from the architecture and Saint Bernards to the chocolate is present. The city is intricately built between a mountain range and lake as you will see below. There were a wide range of activities and excursions which … Continue reading »

El Calafate and the Perito Moreno Glacier

El Calafate. A quaint little town. Streets paved with bricks. Log cabin styled restaurants and shops. But to be honest, there is not all that much to do here… In my mind, the only reason El Calafate exists is because of the Perito Moreno glacier which is the main attraction here. I’m currently writing this … Continue reading »

Ushuaia – The End of the World

I am at the “End of the World”! Ushuaia is the southern most city on the very tip of Argentina. To get here, we had to pass through Chile and Tierra del Fuegos which is Spanish for “Fireland” even though there was not fire to be seen. We had a massive drive day of 15 … Continue reading »

Into Patagonia We Head

With Buenos Aires behind us we hit the road. Next stop, Patagonia! Ok, to be fair, it’s a little bit far so there was some free-camping to be had inbetween. But as I write this post now, we are on the truck (it’s not a bus!) slowly making our way to Ushuaia which is better … Continue reading »

Buenos Aires

Meaning “Good Air”, Buenos Aires (BA) is an incredible city. We spent four days here and barely scratched the surface. There is so much to see and do that it would probably takes months to feel like you know BA. I am definitely coming back here. We didnt have a set itinery here, rather, we … Continue reading »
