Iguazu falls

Coming off a nearly perfect and relaxing night in Puerto Iguazu, I was well rested (a solid 5 hours!) and ready to see the falls.  While I do enjoy nature, I didn’t have high expectations for the falls since usually things of that sort entertain me for about half an hour tops before I’m like […]

A Perfect Disaster

I’ve been sitting on the bus for 17 hours from Buenos Aires to Iguazu Falls.  While I will defend Green Toad’s customer service, they did fuck up and book us from Iguazu Falls to Buenos Aires instead of the other way around.  The next bus was 5 hours later and then ran 3 hours late. […]

Buenos Aires: Barrio Chino and La Recoleta

After drinking during dinner and then spending three hours drinking during a blackout with the hostel manager needless to say I was mildly hungover the next morning. And by mildly I mean all I wanted was a bowl of egg drop soup and a gingerale. Unfortunately I’d seen about as many Chinese restaurants in Buenos […]

Buenos Aires: No Lights, Big City

After the thrilling experience that was Cordoba I was really excited to get the hell out and into a big city. While I’m hopefully not the stereotypical New Yorker that is stuck up my own ass and obsessed with the idea of never having to leave the city for anything, there are certain things I […]

The bus ride from Mendoza to Cordoba quickly taught me a new adaptive skill for traveling. The skill to consume mass quantities of wine in order to pass out cold on a 10 hour bus ride. Apparently there was a thunderstorm and Mark was climbing over me to take pictures and I had absolutely no […]

Touring Mendoza

After a lovely, relaxing and completely on time trip through the Andes, when we arrived at 5:30am as planned in Mendoza, we checked in, set our alarms for the bike tour and immediately passed the fuck out in our room. Because, since we were on time, the hostel hadn’t given up one of our reservations […]

Crossing the Andes: A M***** F******Scary Experience

Overall I’d have to say that while I enjoyed Santiago it was a long shot from contending for my favorite city.  I unfortunately have the attention span of a goldfish and the “impress me” threshold of a typical obnoxious New Yorker so I was kind of excited to leave Chile simply for the sake of […]

Shit I Need to Do: Argentina

1.  drink large amounts of red wine, especially Malbec 2.  visit la Recoleta Cemetery and Eva Peron’s grave 3.  eat asado barbeque with chimichurri 4.  visit Iguazu Falls 5.  eat dinner at a closed door restaurant  6. drink a Fernet and coke (especially since their coke still uses the original sugar not corn syrup recipe) […]
