Spanish in Rosario

I’m sad to say, but our time in Rosario, Argentina has come to an end. We’ll be leaving Rosario tomorrow morning. I know, that’s rather sudden! We had found out about our departure a few weeks ago. I was waiting to say anything about it, though, because I was hoping I would have a little more information to share other than “we’re leaving.” Now What? Alas, though, that is all I know right now! We’re leaving Rosario tomorrow morning, but… Read more »

sloth amazon rainforest

One of the coolest parts of staying in the Amazon Rainforest is all of the incredible critters you get to see during the day and at night. We spotted many different types of monkeys, sloths, birds, fish…and even alligators and gigantic spiders and snakes! My last post was dedicated to what it was like staying at Treehouse Lodge. (Click here if you missed that.) So, for this post, I will be sharing one of the ways we spent our time… Read more »

Treehouse Lodge

As the name suggests, the Treehouse Lodge is indeed a lodge made up of honest-to-goodness treehouses! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience that was nonstop excitement for us. (This is where we were over the weekend and earlier this week.) Our 4 days there were chocked full of activities. So, for this post, I’m going to focus just on the lodge itself, what to expect when staying there, some cool wildlife sightings right from our treehouse and my thoughts on the price/how… Read more »

uluru

*Regular readers: We’re going back in time! It’s been over a year since I visited Uluru in Australia. However, I’ve recently been getting a lot of questions about this specific area of Australia. It made me realize it would be far more helpful to answer questions if I put together an itinerary for those trying to plan their trips…something I didn’t do last year. So, sorry for the time travel! But please enjoy some old Uluru (and surrounding area) photos…. Read more »

Machu Picchu

So, today’s post is going to be wildly different than my usual travel/style posts. Today I wanted to share with you all a really cool travel, writing opportunity. In addition to blogging, I do take on freelance writing/marketing assignments. And one of the companies I work with is looking to add 50 talented travel writers to their talent pool for an upcoming marketing campaign. I’m helping with the recruitment process and wanted to let my readers be the first to… Read more »

Riding horses through the Andes

Horseback riding through the Andes with Don Daniel Ranch is hands down my most favorite experience in Argentina so far. Heck, I’d say it’s one of my favorite experiences of my life! (Tied only with our adventures up Rainbow Mountain and Mount Fuji.) This is a one-of-a-kind, authentic experience I can’t recommend enough if you find yourself near Mendoza, Argentina one day. What to Expect – Getting to the Ranch For this adventure, you’ll need to book a guide. We… Read more »

Mendoza, Argentina vineyard

Mendoza, Argentina is world-famous for its amazing wineries. There are many different ways to visit these delicious wineries, and a bus tour (or a private tour with a driver) are generally the most popular. However, if you’ve been following my travel posts at all…you’ll know that my husband and I like to make these sorts of activities a bit more interesting. So, when I saw we had the option to bike from winery to winery my interest was piqued! Wine… Read more »

La Boca

Visiting cities in a rush is becoming an unfortunate theme on here, lately! But fret not, I’ll be returning to Buenos Aires soon enough to give it the proper visit it deserves. However, if you do end up in Buenos Aires without much time to spare, here is one way to see some of its important landmarks in just a half day. *Please note, to visit these places in a half day you will need to find a form of… Read more »

Thank you so much for following Have Clothes, Will Travel through this year – I appreciate each and every one of you taking time out of your days to read my posts. And as I did last year, I put together this post to show which of my blog posts were hits and which were flops this year. This… Read more »

Tigre

Who knew you could take so many day trips from Buenos Aires? Haha. I swear in my next travel post I’ll actually talk about Buenos Aires itself. But for now, I’m going to share my thoughts and some tips for visiting Tigre Delta – which is also very easy to get to from Buenos Aires. (If you missed my day trip post about Colonia del Sacramento, click here.) Tigre Delta – What Is It? And Why Would You Visit It?… Read more »

Here are some of the top places that should be on your itinerary when you come to this unique and… Read more »

Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay

For anyone planning a trip to Buenos Aires, I can’t recommend a day trip to Colonia del Sacramento enough! It’s very easy to get to (only an hour ferry ride away). And the Barrio Histórico (historic quarter) section of Colonia del Sacramento is a designated World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is SO beautiful and relaxing. You can even rent golf carts and sand buggies to scoot around the city with. It’s a really unique, laid back place to visit…. Read more »

Fushimi Inari Shrine (伏見稲荷大社, Fushimi Inari Taisha)

Guest Post by Amy Smith Many travelers seem to skip over Japan when traveling the world. It’s unfair, really, as it’s one of the most culturally rich destinations you’ll ever come across – from the wonder of its major cities to the intrigue of its rich history and heritage, Japan’s culture is prevalent and diverse, making for a very unique experience. If you’re considering a trip to Japan for the culture, here are four of the best destinations to find… Read more »

Georgia Aquarium

Atlanta is a highly underrated city, in my opinion. It’s the perfect destination for a stress-free weekend getaway with a wide variety of activities for the whole family. Obviously, the Georgia Aquarium is the first thing to come to mind when thinking of Atlanta (and is not to be missed!), but that’s not all Atlanta has to offer! I’ll be perfectly honest, though, by the time I reached Atlanta I was TIRED. We flew to Atlanta (for a conference for… Read more »

Plaza de Armas

Let me start this post off by saying if you can spend more than 10 days in Peru, by all means, do it! There is SO much to do and see in this amazing country. However, if you’re on a time constraint like I was, this itinerary will help you plan your Peru adventure and see as much as you possibly can in your 10 days! (I’ll also share some suggestions if you’re on an even tighter time constraint.) How… Read more »

Machu Picchu

It wasn’t too long ago that I published my first post on Machu Picchu. However, that post was more centered around travel tips and how to get there. For this post, I wanted to actually share some of the cool things I learned about Machu Picchu and my photos of the experience. Enjoy! A Few Machu Picchu Fun Facts *Machu Picchu is an Incan citadel set high in the Andes Mountains in Peru, above the Urubamba River valley. *Machu Picchu… Read more »

Learning how to make a pisco sour!

One day is never enough time to truly experience a city. But that was, unfortunately, the way my trip to Lima worked out. Lima is a beautiful city that deserves more than a day. However, if you’re like me, and only have a limited amount of time there, this is one way to enjoy the city in just one day! Lima Gourmet Company When trying to decide how to spend my one lonely day, I had to figure out what… Read more »

San Pedro Market

I’m going to go ahead and start this post off with a disclaimer. WARNING: If you don’t like seeing dead animals/bits of dead animals this post is not for you. Every piece of the cow is used and sold here (seriously, every piece), and there are some little animals eaten in Peru that Americans regard as pets. So, as long as y’all aren’t squeamish with this stuff…we’ll move onto what you can all buy at the glorious San Pedro Market… Read more »

View from Taquile Island, Peru

The city of Puno is a relatively small one, with the Islas Uros being its main attraction. However, if you’re making the long journey to Puno, the Islas Uros don’t have to be your only stop. Taquile Island is located about 45 kilometers off the shore of Puno. (About a 2-hour boat ride.) There are just over 2,000 people living on the island, and it is quite beautiful! Over 10 years ago, the island was even proclaimed “Masterpieces of the… Read more »

Islas Uros

You may remember me mentioning the Islas Uros in my previous Peru travel post. They are the unique floating islands of Lake Titicaca that are home to the Uros people. If you read that post you may have noticed too that getting to them is quite a long journey! So, is it worth taking 2-3 days out of your Peru adventure to visit them? I’ll be sharing my opinion and a bit more detail about the islands below. (And I… Read more »

Tobi black dress + Asian Eye silk scarf

Just to be clear, I was watching Rojo Tango, not actually dancing. Haha. I do have plans to at least try the tango once before we leave Argentina, but this night was not that night! More on that in a moment, though… let’s first talk about this here outfit! The Outfit – Silk Scarf + A Black Dress I am still just tickled that I was able to have this lovely silk scarf shipped to me in Argentina. (If you… Read more »

Guest post by Holly Tomlinson The best parts of traveling are the memories made, but sometimes we want to take home a memento to remember our experiences by. Too often these items get forgotten about, thrown away, or placed by the layside. To bring home a timeless souvenir you’re sure to treasure forever, read through this list of unique mementos before taking your next trip.

Church of Andahuaylilas

There are a few different ways to get from Cusco to the city of Puno, which is the home of Lake Titicaca. Lake Titicaca is the largest lake in South America and the highest navigable body of water in the world! It is also where you’ll find the “Islas Uros” a.k.a floating islands. I’ll be sharing more details about Lake Titicaca and the Islas Uros next week, though. Today’s post is sharing how exactly you can get to Puno in… Read more »

Salineras de Maras

There as so many cool Inca Ruins in the Sacred Valley, it was worth splitting this series into two! (If you missed the first post, click here.) And just in case you missed the first, I’m not trying to convince you not to go to Machu Picchu by any means – Machu Picchu is incredible! However, don’t let Machu Picchu be the only Inca ruin on your Sacred Valley trip! Moray Moray is an archaeological site that’s a bit off… Read more »

Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu is at the top of many bucket lists, and for very good reason! It is most certainly not an overrated tourist trap and is every bit as magical as one would imagine. However, being prepared and visiting at certain times of the year can make this experience that much better. For this post, I’ll be sharing 10 of my tips for visiting and of course, photos of the experience! Enjoy! (Side note, I have so many photos &… Read more »

Alpaca sweater - Cusco Peru travel outfit

Click to shop: If you visit Cusco, Peru the first thing you will notice is nearly every shop and street vendor is selling “baby alpaca” sweaters. The second thing you will likely notice is that nearly none of these vendors are actually selling “baby alpaca” sweaters. (As the locals say its “maybe alpaca.” Ha!) How to Shop for Genuine Baby Alpaca Wool Sweaters Baby alpaca wool is the wool used when a baby alpaca gets its very first haircut. It… Read more »
