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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Parque de la Independencia

Last week I had shared a photo gallery of my home state of Wisconsin. So, it’s only fair that I share my current home of Rosario, Argentina in photos too! I’ve done 2 other posts featuring photo galleries of Rosario, so for this one, I tried to find different spots in the city that were not shown in those posts. Most of these photos are mainly in the area of Parque de la Independencia. I had shown this area in… Read more »

Mate gourd and bombilla

Seeing someone drinking mate for the first time can be particularly confusing for someone not from Argentina or the surrounding area. To get the obvious out of the way, it can bear a striking resemblance to a far less legal substance. But, mate is a tea-like beverage (not drug-related beyond caffeine)! However, it’s not something you simply prepare by heating up some water and dropping a tea bag into a cup. Oh, no, there’s a whole process and social code… Read more »

Rosario

Hola, amigos! Hoy estoy hablando de Rosario! Hopefully, I wrote that grammatically correct in Spanish, haha. I know quite a lot of words in Spanish, now, but I have some work to do in the grammar department. But anyways, as promised, today I’ll be talking about/showing photos of Rosario. I had many requests for photos of architecture, which I was more than happy to oblige. I also thought it would be fun to share some of the things I’ve learned… Read more »

Rosario, Argentina at sunset

We made it! It was one heck of a journey from Sydney to Queenstown, NZ to Rotorua, NZ to Auckland, NZ and then Buenos Aires, but we’re finally moved into our new place in Rosario. I just wanted to give a little update on how everything went, as I’ve been getting some questions that I haven’t had a chance to respond to. (It’s been a bit crazy + we JUST got the internet in our place.) And I’ll start posting… Read more »

We're moving!

Yep, you read that title right. We are moving all the way across the world yet again! Don’t worry, we’re just as surprised as you. We really thought we were going to be calling Australia home for much longer than 6 months. But hey, no complaints here! We’re all for new adventures. We actually just squared away the last of the details yesterday, so now I can say with certainty we are moving to Rosario, Argentina on April 8th! It’s… Read more »
