ARGENTINA - BlueMarble Vagabonds

ARGENTINA

Argentina is our favorite country in South America – maybe even one of our favorite countries in the world! Beautiful and diverse landscape, juicy steaks and excellent (and insanely cheap) wine can be ranked in the top three reasons why we realized pretty quickly that this would not be our only visit to Argentina.

We spent a month and a half in Argentina, skipping only Buenos Aires and the northeastern part of the country. We reached “the end of the world” in Tierra del Fuego, we were chasing the sunsets on the Atlantic coast, drove almost the whole road Ruta 40 (the equivalent of Chile’s Carretera Austral), hiked in El Chalten – the Argentinian trekking capital, dipped our toes into the crystal blue lakes, watched the ice crashing off the Perito Moreno glacier, and spend time in the north trying Argentinian wines, exploring stunning canyons and dinosaur fossils and admiring the rainbow mountains.

If I can be a little poetic: “Don’t cry for us Argentina, the truth is we never left you..!”

HIKING IN USHUAIA – DOs & definite DON’Ts

Hiking at the end of the world? C’mon, admit it, there’s a super cool edge to it.

And besides, we Slovenians are known to be a “hiking nation”, so when our new friends from the USA invited us to go hiking in Ushuaia together, saying “nope” was not an option. No matter the circumstances.

And that’s perhaps where things started to go wrong.

This is a story about our hilarious hiking in Ushuaia and all the DOs and DON’Ts you should(not) repeat.
