Homage to Patagonia

ARGENTINA | Saturday, 31 Dec 2011 | Views [2308]

Since we arrived in Argentina, a lot of Argentinians have been asking us if we were planning to visit Patagonia. I guess that Patagonia is for Argentinians what the Outback is for Australians – a large, sparsely inhabited area, where life can be tough ... Read more >

ARGENTINA | Thursday, 15 Dec 2011 | Views [2233] | Comments [1]

As mentioned in my previous blog, we loved Buenos Aires. Another nice attraction of Buenos Aires is the amount of places within a relatively short distance. We didn’t make it to the well-spoken-of Tigre, but we did head down the coast to Mar del Plata ... Read more >

ARGENTINA | Monday, 14 Nov 2011 | Views [2334]

Buenos Aires sure was a head-spinning week or so. We watched a game of soccer in a crowd famous for being the most fanatical and passionate in the world; we attended a local birthday at probably the biggest house we’ve ever been inside (as a guest);... Read more >

Brazil - It's Big

BRAZIL | Tuesday, 8 Nov 2011 | Views [2249] | Comments [1]

After a longer than planned stay at Puerto Iguazu waiting for our Brazilian visas, we crossed into Brazil. All of a sudden, our hard earned Spanish was next to useless, as the language turned to Portuguese (I bitched about this until I realised that ... Read more >

Northern Argentina: Shake Hands with Beef

ARGENTINA | Thursday, 3 Nov 2011 | Views [1902] | Comments [1]

Coming from the intensity of Potosi in particular, and 3-odd months in Peru and Bolivia, Argentina seemed a bit of an oasis. The roads weren’t terrible, you could (safely) drink the water, butchers decided to spring that bit of extra cash on refrigeration ... Read more >

After our horror afternoon and night in Lima, we got the first bus possible the next morning to head to Huaraz, where we were looking at undertaking a couple of hikes within the Andes. We arrived late in the evening and made our way to a comfortable ... Read more >

PERU | Friday, 7 Oct 2011 | Views [19242] | Comments [7]

We ended up spending considerably longer in Peru than we’d intended, with hiking taking up the vast majority of the time. To try and avoid an overly cluttered entry, I’ve split Peru into two. This blog will tackle Arequipa, Cusco and Lima, and all ... Read more >
