December 20 marked our three month travel-versary so I thought now would be a good time to look back on how these past few months — which have taken us from Peru to Patagonia — have shaped up. In a nutshell, life is freaking awesome. I feel so lucky that I can get up every … Continue reading »

Everyone raved about how stylish everyone is in Buenos Aires, so Eaman and I were a little skittish about how our decidedly grubby backpacker clothes would fit into porento life.

An ode to Buenos Aires meriendas

Yesterday, I shared with you the major food groups in Argentina. But there’s one food tradition I left — for good reason. It’s the merienda, and it deserves its own post.
