Wining Our Way Through Argentina


  Mendoza - Wines & Wobbly Bikes Much to Bryan's relief, lately I've been doing a lot more wining and a lot less whining.  Mendoza has been at the top of my list of the destinations I've been looking forward to most in South America.  Delicious wines, gorgeous scenery, tantalizing cuisine - what's not to love?  So after Santiago, we took another double-decker bus eight hours and ...

Bariloche & Back for Boca’s!


If Bryan misses out on any opportunity (especially if it's something fun & unique), I will hear about it for the REST OF MY LIFE.  So when we were unable to catch a Boca Juniors football (soccer) game in Buenos Aires last month, I knew we'd be back to the city in the next 10 years or so for a game.  I just didn't expect we'd be back in less than a month! Beautiful Bariloche I love Barilo...

Trekking Patagonia: Wild Winds, Gigantic Glaciers, and Troublesome Turds


  There are 80 to 90 mile per hour winds in the forecast.  No, it's not a hurricane coming.  It's just another typical day in Patagonia!  The locals don't even seem to notice it, but us tourists sure do.  Bryan and I have been through two hurricanes in the last several years in Southeastern Virginia, but I don't recall winds like these.  Or maybe it's the 30 degree temperature combine...

Up All Night in Buenos Aires


Yes, this blog is a little lengthy, but we've been pretty busy the last week and a half... Beautiful Buenos Aires Bryan and I were extremely fortunate to have two personal tour guides in Buenos Aires - Manuel and Julie.  Manuel is a friend's cousin and he graciously offered to show us around the city and insisted we stay at his apartment.   Buenos Aires looks more like a European city than...

3 Countries & 2 World Wonders in 2 Days


The other day we woke up in Brazil, spent the day in Argentina, and went to bed in Paraguay.  Just your typical day.  So three countries in one day is our record so far.  The day before that we managed to squeeze two World Wonders into the same day. Iguazu Falls I can definitely see why these falls are described as the world's most amazing and a World Wonder.  They are just spectacular - a...
