Arrived in Buenos Aires!

buenos aires argentina

Last night I flew into Buenos Aires (Argentina) for the start of a 5 month journey through South America! As a I mentioned previously, this trip has been on my agenda for some time now and I’m super excited about touching soil in an entirely new continent!

I have a week before I start a Spanish language course with Expanish, a private language school in Buenos Aires. Until then though I’m going to be using this week to get my bearings and indulge in some Argentine specialties like steak and Malbec! I’m also hoping to make a quick trip to Montevideo in Uruguay for 3 or 4 days! In the case of the latter it is actually rather close to Buenos Aires, with just a 4 hour journey to get there by bus and ferry combined.

As for what route I’ll be taking through South America I don’t yet know, however it is most likely I will be heading up the East Coast first (excluding a small detour to Iguazu Falls) as I search for warmer weather at this time of year! Brazil is definitely on the cards next after Argentina and Uruguay.

My plan after this trip is to hopefully provide you with some useful advice should you ever visit South America yourself in the future. I’m also hoping to get a lot better at speaking Spanish! I hope you’ll join me and follow along on my updates and articles throughout my time here.

    Look forward to all your hints and tips.

    Have a great time! Your spanish will be great in a few weeks, such a diverse mix of countries and dialects. Have fun!!

    I was in Buenos Aires a few years ago and loved it. So many cute little neighborhoods! The metro is great and the buses are wonderful, I love the way people stand in line and wait for the bus. Try a restaurant called Minga in Plaza Palermo Viejo. Lots of locals and the food was excellent!
