When I was planning my trip around Argentina, it worked out that we would be spending a total of 4 days in Ushuaia (a.k.a. The Southern Most City in the World). Now, spending 4 days in Ushuaia is not necessarily what most people do when they plan their adventures around Argentina or Patagonia. I could not find a single article on a 4-day itinerary when I was trying to figure out my time there! I know it’s much more popular… Read more »

sailing the Beagle Channel

If you’re heading to Ushuaia, Argentina, spending at least a half day on the Beagle Channel is a must. There are many species of birds as well as sea lions to be seen and some outstanding views of Ushuaia. And there are many different companies offering boat tours of the Beagle Channel. However, there is only one who offers the option to take you out in a sailboat – Tres Marias Excursiones. Why choose a sailing tour? I chose this… Read more »

tribal print cardigan - black skinnies - black booties

Cardigan (Similar here, here & here) | Booties (Similar) | Jeans | Scarf (Similar) | Earrings | Sunglasses c/o* Why hello! Long time no see! I’m finally back to blogging as usual, and thank you, again, to all of my lovely guest posters for picking up the slack while I was moving/traveling. And my travels did actually bring me to “the end of the world.” Ushuaia, Argentina is dubbed “Fin del Mundo” in Spanish, which means “End of the World”… Read more »

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 »

Mendoza, Argentina vineyard

If you liked this post, it is now available as a self-guided tour via GPSmyCITY. Click here to download it. 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… 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 »

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 »

Floral dress & pink cardigan

Click to shop: I officially no longer know what season it is here. The calendar tells me it’s winter, and I was wearing boots, scarves, mittens and a winter coat last weekend…but this weekend we had weather that hit 80 degrees Fahrenheit! This left me scratching my head over how I should dress, as I had only unpacked my warm clothes since we arrived in Argentina. However, sifting through my summer wardrobe I was excited to pull out this dress!… 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 »
