Day 60: Godoy Cruz and River Plate

Today has been another quiet day of planning, we booked our bus across the border and our hostel in Santiago, but we STILL have not managed to figure out what to do about Patagonia – we know the routes we want to do but are still unsure if it is… Keep Reading

Day 59: The Lost Day

After yesterday, it sounds lame but I was hungover BEFORE I went to sleep, so I really wasn’t up for doing much today. Kind of luckily, the weather wasn’t great so we decided to get some chores done; we got cash out, we went to the supermarket for a big… Keep Reading

Day 58: Wine Tour Numero Dos

Some would say that wine for breakfast is a sign that something is wrong but today was a huge exception to the rule! We booked another wine tour for today, this time a far more in-depth, all day tour that would take us to the Uco Valley region of Mendoza.… Keep Reading

Day 57: Wine Tour Numero Uno

Today was our first wine tour in Argentina, something we’d been excited about since we first booked our trip. Unfortunately however, having consumed quite a lot of wine yesterday, Jamie woke up with a horrible hangover headache. Not ideal when you’re about to spend a day drinking MORE wine. So… Keep Reading

Day 56: Wandering Around Mendoza

We were obviously exhausted, because we woke up late today, missing breakfast and not managing to get up and out until around 12pm. When we did surface however, and got ourselves together, we met a lovely, friendly, old inhabitant of our hostel. Although we didn’t catch her name, we decided… Keep Reading

Day 55: To Mendoza!

Today was a day of hanging around loads, although we had to leave our AirBnB at 11am which was annoying considering our flight wasn’t until 6pm, meaning we had to carry our bags around with us all afternoon. We went to the cool cafe we went to a few days… Keep Reading

Day 53: Mothers, Planning & Afternoon Tea

According to Wikipedia, Mother’s Day in Argentina is not until October, however at home in the UK, today was Mothering Sunday. So, we spent the morning and early afternoon in conversation with our mums! And as if we needed an excuse, we used Mother’s Day to justify eating sandwiches and… Keep Reading

Day 52: Moving to another part of Palermo

We are definitely not ready to leave Buenos Aires just yet. So we have booked an AirBnB for a few nights in a slightly different part of Palermo. It’s actually a really nice apartment and I could see us staying here for even longer! The area is really nice and… Keep Reading

Day 51: We’ve Been Tangoed

We’ve been in Buenos Aires quite a few days now and had still yet to see a Tango show. Well, we decided to change that with a full dinner/show combo this evening. The day was spent chilling out and getting lunch back at the football-shirt-covered place that we had a… Keep Reading
