Location: Buenas Aires, Argentina

Buenas Aires

We started here in BA mid January and this is where we have to say goodbye to our South American Adventure. After almost 3 months of travelling the bottom half of this amazing continent we have been fortunate enough come to the end safely and with huge smiles for having seen its natural spectacales and experienced its beautiful cultures.

To try and summarise....we winded through the Andes Mountains in amazement, sampled Mendoza wines on bikes, enjoyed the vibe and went to Spanish School in Buenas Aires, was in awe at the beauty of Iguazu falls, viewd the wildlife and remote sunsets of the mozzie ridden Pantanal, snorkelled the crystal clear streams in Bonito, endured the longest bus ride across Brazil, admired the Costa Verde with its green waters and scattered islands, admired caperioria dancers in the colonial town of Parity, swam at Lopez Mendez the best beach in Brazil, were speechless at the sight of dolphins playing by our boat´moi linda´, Lis fell very ill and beat a servere intestine infection from the local food, we´ve been to Rio de Janerio..what more can you say about that, we were almongst the biggest party in the world in the Sambadromo, danced samba with the locals at bloca street parties, watched the city lights of Rio come alight from the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain, watched the sunset over Ipenema beach, chilled out on the beaches on the pennisular of Buzios, saw the Andes mountains through the smog in Santiago City, attempted to climb an active volcano in Pucon, took a road trip through the Argentinean and Chiliean Lakes District, saw colonies of sea lions and peguins, ´hardcored it´trekking and camping in one of the most breathtaking national parks in the world - Torres Del Paine, was in awe at the size and beauty of Moreno Glacier and to close we travelled to the southern most city in the world.

Looking back its crazy when you think of everything that we accomplished. Of all of the places and things we set out to see and do we achieved and not to mention exceeded expectations. We have experienced the culture, food, made freinds with locals and explored the special sights that Chile, Argentina and Brazil have to offer the world. We highly recommend that you get to experience them one day too, we know you will love it as much as we book your flight now!
