Leaving South America: Reflections and a numerical breakdown

Leaving South America: Reflections and a numerical breakdown

I’ve spent a lot of the free time in my life traveling — through Europe, Australia, Egypt, India, the Caribbean, etc. — but South America always stuck out as one glaring to-do flag that just never was crossed off the list. And now, after 4.5 months through Peru, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile and Colombia, I can’t … Continue reading »

WWOOFing in Argentina, or Why I Will Probably Never WWOOF Again

Eaman and I knew we wanted to WWOOF at least once during this trip, and we thought that Patagonian Argentina or Chile would be ideal because the landscape is beautiful and working for accommodation and food would be smart considering the high-priced region. We were accepted to only one farm — some farms were full, … Continue reading »

Day hiking in Los Alerces National Park — and Eaman’s coming to Colombia!

We’re now on our way to Trevelin, Argentina to begin our WWOOFing gig. There’s no internet at the farm, so you won’t be hearing from us much during the next two weeks. (Sad, I know.) But to hold you over on this New York to Nomad diet are some shots from our day-long hike we … Continue reading »

Road-tripping through Argentina: Learning to drive manual via YouTube and other fun goodies

We had been wanting so badly to do a road trip somewhere in Argentina, but we quickly realized that choosing the best route (not an easy task in this massive country!) was the least of our problems. As it turns out, there are no automatic rental cars on this continent, and if we wanted to … Continue reading »

Biking the Circuito Chico in Bariloche, Argentina — and meeting an Argentinan playboy along the way

With just two days to spend in Bariloche, we knew we didn’t have time for much — not that we minded considering how active we were in El Bolson. But we knew we wanted to bike the 60-some km Circuito Chico, a popular route that can be driven, biked, or if you’re ready for a … Continue reading »

Falling in love with El Bolson, Argentina: Part 2 — the nature

We’ve left El Bolson and are now in Bariloche, Argentina — a beautiful, albeit far more touristy, ski resort town in the Rio Negro Province. For the first time, we had a really hard time leaving somewhere when we drove off from the amazing La Casona Odile. It was such a good fit for us, … Continue reading »

Happy new year from El Bolson!

Last night we rung in the new year at our hostel, La Casona de Odile, which threw an incredible dinner and dance party. The festivities began at 8:30 p.m. with canapes, appetizers and berry punch in their backyard and continued indoors with a lavish three-course dinner. We’ve been at hostels for group dinners, like the … Continue reading »

Falling in love with El Bolson, Argentina: Part One — the hostel

As I last mentioned, we’re currently road-tripping through the state of Chubut in Argentina for a week of small towns and beautiful hiking. We started in Esquel, a former Welsh colony, where we spent one night. There isn’t much to write home about re:Esquel, but we’ll be going back there for a few days — … Continue reading »
