Nanni Bodega, organic wine

I left my heart and sobriety in Cafayate

Next we made our way to Cafayate, where the wine country begins which makes Argentina famous for its delicious reds and whites. From Salta your only option is going with Flecha Buses which leaves Salta at 5:50am, 10:30am, 1pm, 5pm, 7:30pm and 9pm daily. The three-hour drive was incredible and...

The hill of the seven colors

From South to North, Salta

From the very bottom of Argentina and one of the most Southern towns in the world we flew back to Buenos Aires for a night before jumping abroad a night bus to Salta. All in all we ended up spending eight nights in Buenos Aires so it was good to...

perito moreno, el calafate

The deep South, Ushuaia and El Calafate

Our travels turned a little bit cooler once we landed in Ushuaia, we went from 24° in Buenos Aires to a chilly 4° in Ushuaia. Unfortunately all Antarctic cruises had left for the season which was a pity as although we weren’t intending on each forking out $5K plus on...

Aerolíneas Argentinas

Buenos Aires via Ushuaia to Buenos Aires

After six nights in Buenos Aires our next destination was calling us, Ushuaia. With over 60 hours of bus hours on the cards to get us so far South we booked a reasonable flight with Aerolineas Argentinas and were excited to get down there. The flight went from the painfully...

Montevideo

Three nights in Uruguay

To add a 37th country for me and a 39th country to the tally for Rob a one hour ferry ride from Buenos Aires to the small smugglers town of Colonia, Uruguay was in order. There are three ferry companies to choose from Seacat Colonia, Buquebus and Colonia Express to get...

Buenos Aires, The Paris of South America

We spent 5 days in Buenos Aires, and I fell in love with the city, I ended up researching whether Kiwi’s can apply for working visas in Argentina. Getting from Puerto Iguaza to Buenos Aires overnight was less memorable, we chose the company Rapido Argentino which was completely rubbish, especially...

Puerto Iguazú Falls

Puerto Iguaçu, The Devils Throat

Everyone says that visiting both sides of the Igazcu falls is a necessity, whether you do it Brazil > Argentina like we did or Argentina > Brazil. However I recommend Brazil > Argentina as although the Brazilian side was remarkable the Argentinian side was astounding and provided a whole day...

Bus stop Foz

Foz da Iguazú to Puerto Iguazú (Brazil to Argentina)

Our gateway to Argentina came via a 20 minute local bus ride to the Brazilian border to clear immigration. It was kinda cool leaving a country and entering another via a land border, I can’t remember the last time we did this, perhaps Laos/Thailand a few years back. We paid...

Foz do Iguaçu

One amazing day at Foz da Iguaçu

Foz da Iguaçu is the Brazilian side of the mighty Iguaçu falls and our last stop before hopping over to Argentina. We will be back in Brazil around the end of June for our three FIFA World Cup Soccer games. I am really glad we are returning in June as...

Barra da Lagoa

Florianópolis

We took our first of many overnight busses from São Paulo to Florianópolis a few days ago. The “Executive” bus suited us time wise so we went for this option, although this was the more expensive choice and mentioned free water never actually made an appearance. Going with “Conventional”, would have probably...
