    Nov082009

    Today I checked out one of the world’s top ten views according to National Geographic. It’s called Cerro Campanario. As you can see, it doesn’t disappoint. And this photo is only the half of it.

    A day looking out the window

    Nov082009

    When I was in Mendoza in Hostel Lao I met an English couple called John and Sonia. They’re cool guys. Yesterday, after walking down to the lake to almost get blown into it for the above photograph, I bumped into them again in a café called

    On our last night in B.A. myself and Richie went for a few beers. We didn’t have the biggest night in the world, but it was a late one nonetheless. As a result we were quite tired last night. So after our meal in the local Mexican restaurant we c

    The beautiful Bariloche

    Nov082009

    A few years back friends of mine were in Argentina. Upon returning they raved about one place in particular – Bariloche. I flew here today and I can see why they loved it so much...it’s a very picturesque place. It’s full of hostels t

    Steak and tango part 2

    Nov062009

    There are three main ways to see tango – the first is by catching free performances in places like San Telmo and La Boca. The second is by going to a ‘milonga’ club where anyone can try it. The third is by going to a tourist-driven ta

    Buenos Aires has a good mix of neighbourhoods. There’s La Boca which is the most famous (and one of the most dangerous), there’s San Telmo which is a lovely historical quarter with cobbled streets, and there’s Palermo, full of trendy

    A truly awful, awful football game

    Nov062009

    Argentinean football fans may want to look away now – earlier today I went to see River Plate play. It was one of the worst games of football I’ve ever watched. I now know why any decent Argentinean players leave for Europe.

    Yesterday my good friend Richie arrived. He was extremely happy to see me waiting to greet him at the airport. I was a bit tired though (his flight was in at 8am), as was he. What we ended up doing last night isn’t our average Saturday night...

    Steak and tango part 1

    Nov062009

    Last night I pigged out on lots of meat. Not for the first time in Argentina I might add. Meat here is a big thing, and unless you’re a vegetarian, you’ll be eating lots of it here.

    A new podcast and a quiet night in

    Nov062009

    Hostelworld.com’s Travel Podcast for Cusco is now finished, as you know from the other post which states that. I’m happy with it. Hope you are too if you give it a listen. Spent a good bit of time editing that last night and didn’t ma
