Tasty and colorful Foz do Iguazu

“Normal” people usually go and visit Iguassu Falls when in Foz do Iguacu, the small city at the Brazilian border with Argentina. But as we are not “normal” and as we had already been overwhelmed by the greatness of the falls on the Argentinian side, we decided to start emerging in the Brazilian culture instead. […]

Different angles, same wonder of the world

Tones of water throwing themselves over the cliffs making strong noise stating their majesty, mist rising amongst the infinite untouched jungle, beauty, natural strength…no wonder Eleanor Roosevelt has exclaimed “Poor Niagara!” on her first sight of Iguazu Falls, taller and twice as wide as the American waterfall. Considered one of the 7 natural wonders of […]

Buenos Aires, almost a perfect city

I’ve been thinking about this blog post for a while, trying to find the best description for this wonderful city, though I still find it very difficult. There are so many things to say! I will start with its architecture that made me constantly stare all around. In the center, Parisian Haussmannian/ Spanish buildings and […]

Fast escape to Uruguay

Uruguay was not on our initial destination list, but as we had some time and wanted to spend it with our new Romanian friends (who wanted to visit the country), we finally put our feet on Uruguayan soil. We visited 2 cities, none of which impressed us too much, but I will write a little […]

Feeling young in Cordoba

Known as “La Docta” because of its many universities, Cordoba surprised us with the huge number of young people all over the city, making it one of the liveliest place we’ve been to in South America. Wondering the streets, we felt as being blended in the young and restless ambiance surrounding us. Even the guides […]

When in Mendoza, happiness tastes like an old wine

Simple, but happy life tastes like good wine, combined with tasty parilla (Argentinian barbeque), next to thousands of green trees surrounded by imposing mountains, on a sunny but not extremely hot day! This is what we felt when we reached Mendoza after almost 50 hours of travelling by bus from the cold and windy Punta […]

Chasing penguins at the end of the world

Travelling, exploring new cultures and new places, discovering parts of this planet that you didn’t even know they existed before and constantly expanding the knowledge that you have of the world. These are just some of the reasons that pushed us further every day during this year. And it seems that these motives have pushed […]

Trekking the Legendary Torres del Paine

  A legend always needs some specific elements: one or several heroes, an environment who’s against them, a glorious battle and a final victory for the hero. So when we were put in front of a truly legendary trek for a truly legendary mountain, we ought to write our own legend… it goes like this: […]

Fitz Roy & Cerro Torre – the most beautiful mountains in the world

It’s not always easy to make a top of the most beautiful things we’ve seen. If we compare the physical characteristics (altitude, size, depth …) the order comes naturally: the highest mountain/volcano/waterfall, the longest river, the largest cave/lake… But what happens when we have to choose the one we liked the most? Well, we usually […]
