Purmamarca, Tilcara, Humahueca

Saturday, 17 Jan 2009 | Views [430]

Diego, D'arte, Charlie, Mirri and myself spent a day in Purmamarca, climbing the small mountains for a better view of the place. There was a steep, narrow slope up to the top of one of them and I called Charlie chicken because he wouldn't do it. Like ... Read more >


Salta - Purmamarca

Friday, 16 Jan 2009 | Views [705]

Spent a few days in Salta but didn't really do much there apart from suffer from severe diarrhoea which I reckon was from brushing my teeth using the tap water as I hadn't eaten anything that would have given me it. There is a cable car that goes up ... Read more >

Mendoza

Sunday, 11 Jan 2009 | Views [482]

After I had spent a few hours asleep I went walkabout around the centre of Mendoza. There is a central square and four smaller ones off it each with different themes. I was roasting here as it was very humid and I'm not used to the heat anymore. Bought ... Read more >


Journey from Hell (Part II)

Saturday, 10 Jan 2009 | Views [450]

Arrived in Ushuaia airport with just over an hour and a half to go before the flight...they say you only need an hour.  The queue was really long for check-in and they started to move people on my flight to a different line to check us in faster. It ... Read more >


Tierra del Fuego

Friday, 9 Jan 2009 | Views [388]

When I returned to Ushuaia I went back to the party hostel that I had booked. Had chosen this one because I was going to be here for New Years and I wanted people to celebrate with. Good idea and simultaneously a bad idea! Met with Judith, Dan and Maryanne ... Read more >

El Calafate and Torres del Paine

Friday, 12 Dec 2008 | Views [1496]

Spent a few days in El Calafate not really doing much as trips etc were quite expensive.  Ended up booking two trips together which gave me a slight discount. Didn't reallly have sufficient time to trek in Torres del Paine so opted for a day trip instead.... Read more >

El Chaltén

Tuesday, 9 Dec 2008 | Views [577]

Met up with a Canadian couple in their 60s in the hostel and an American girl Nicole. There were also a pile of Germans. I must say I think that I have seen every possible combination of khaki and army green at this stage. We were talking about what there ... Read more >

Esquel -> El Chalten

Sunday, 7 Dec 2008 | Views [1888] | Comments [1]

  Spent four days in Esquel. Wow. Never thought it was possible to be so bored - and I went there with 3 fresh books! After Bariloche, Esquel is nothing special. Surrounded by mountains but they are dusty rather than the pretty green, snowy ones of ... Read more >


Bariloche

Tuesday, 2 Dec 2008 | Views [356]

San Carlos de Bariloche is a pretty, alpinesque town. It is on a lakeshore - Lago Nahuel Huapi and there are mountains in the background with snow on the top. It´s quite expensive but nice all the same. My first night here I met up with 3 Costa Ricans ... Read more >


Advice for travellers to Buenos Aires / Argentina (Liz, Liz and Paul this is especially for ye)

Tuesday, 2 Dec 2008 | Views [386] | Comments [1]

Argentina is huge - add at least an extra month onto how long you planned to come for. Buses are very plush which is just as well cos the journeys take literally a day Be careful when mentioning wanting to go watch Boca Juniors - quite a lot of porteños ... Read more >


Uruguay

Tuesday, 2 Dec 2008 | Views [293]

Acted the total tourist in Uruguay. First went to the thermal springs in Salto. They were nice and warm but the hot water is so far down in the earth that they just pipe it up into swimming pools. Before I went I had expected something like Rotorua in ... Read more >

Rosario

Friday, 24 Oct 2008 | Views [308]

Time spent in Rosario was too short really but it wasn´t helped by the fact that I arrived on a Bank holiday wkend when everything was closed bar a few touristy attactions and bars. Despite, or maybe because of, it being shut this is my favourite city ... Read more >

Cordoba

Sunday, 12 Oct 2008 | Views [379]

In Cordoba at the minute but leaving tmra to go to Rosario. The city has a really European feel to it, maybe cos it´s a university city. Apparantly it was the place where rich Argentinians came to about 50 years ago when there was lots of money in the ... Read more >


MUGGING in Iguazu

Well, I had been warned it was gonna happen but didn´t really expect it to pan out the way it did. On the tour from the Puerto Iguazu to the Argentinian side of the falls we had been given a packed lunch of a bap and an apple. Bout three hours into walking ... Read more >

Left Rio on a mammoth bus journey - it took 25 hours! There was recliner seats though and I was wrecked from partying the previous night - thanks Wacky! so I slept for most of it. Was the only Gringo on the bus though so had no clue of what was happening ... Read more >
