John and Cathy's Argentina Adventure
Top of the world ma!
With help from our friends at Adventure Life we experienced much of Argentina. From the restaurants and cafes of Buenos Aires to the natural beauty of Patagonia, the Perito Moreno glacier and the Iguazu Falls we fell in love with the country.
After months of anticipation we were finally on our flight to Buenos Aires. We were able to book a non-stop from New York, so the flight was doable. We were able to get some sleep on the plane. Our taxi driver found us at the airport and conveyed us to our hotel. Our hotel is mid-class with a helpful staff. It is well located. We spent the …
Today we discovered that it is difficult to change traveler's checks here. After much walking and even more patience, we had our pesos. Decided to ride the BA metro to the zoo. The metro is quite easy to navigate. A thirst forced us to stop at Sullivan's drink house. Ah those Irish! They,re everywhere, thank goodness. Palermo is very pretty and …
Started the day with breakfeast in hotel. It was nice to meet a couple from US at the hotel. Next was a city tour with tour guide, Leo. We finally met our tour mate, Margie from Salt Lake City. Much of the tour repeated yesterday's walk, but this time we had Leo explaining the significance of what we were seeing. We stopped at the flea market in …
Today was an early day. We had an early breakfeast and an early pick-up by our driver and Leo for our trip to the airport. After a return to the hotel for some forgotten item, we headed out again. Whoops! Wrong airport! We made it to the right airport in plenty of time for out flight to Ushuaia. Arrived at Ushuaia AOK. Considering that we are …
A perfect day,weather-wise,for our trip to Tierra del Fuego National Park. We were picked up early by guide, Freddie, from Canal tours. What a great guide! His English was far superior to our Spanish. He was very knowledgeable about the area's ecology. We followed trail up to "Freddie's Balcony", a great spot for a coffee and soup …
Another great day, sunny and clear when it needed to be. AM shower gave way to a beautiful afternoon. Drove with Canal tour guide Augustino to southend. Like his fellow guide at Canal Augustino was very knowledable. He drove us to a zodiac dock. The ride across the Channel was windy and cold but even Cathy didn't care because we were going to the …
Today was a travel day so we had breakfeast early. The ubiquitous ham and cheese sandwiches appeared again. We did some shopping for gifts before leaving Ushuaia. Check-in and flight to El Calafate went well with no problems. The rain in El Calafate was the first big rain we have seen. This provided us with a great excuse to have a rest day after …
Another early start. After a quick breakfeast we grabbed the last two seats on the tour bus to the Perito Moreno Glacier. One's first views of the glacier are deceptive. Your really can't tell the true size and scope. After a short boat ride we landed at the "eco"camp at the foot of the glacier. Our guide gave a great introductory talk …
Today we returned to BA from el Calafate. BA is having a heat wave (37 degrees C) and it shows. There are not many people stirring. Margie has to head back to the states today so we will miss her during the rest of our trip. We decided to walk around San Telmo again. This is such a great city to walk. There's always a small block you missed …
