Argentina is the first country on my trip. Besides some travels, I stayed here in a hostel in Buenos Aires and worked for food & lodging. ✌️

    Bodegas López & Museum in Maipú

    March 12, 2020 in Argentina ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Early in the morning, we took the bus to Maipú, where we first visited the winery Bodegas López. They offer guided tours for free through their production and a free wine tasting at the end!🍷

    I dont like wine, but I never say no to a new try, maybe this time I will like it. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    The tour was in Spanish, but I think I understood like the basic stuff about the family and the production of the wine. 🍇

    Well, I did not like the wine ... 🙈😖😩

    Afterwards, we went to the National Museum of Wine and Vintage, had also a little guided tour, eat a Pancho (Hot Dog) and relaxed in a park, until we took the bus back to the hostel.

    March 11, 2020 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    It was my job today in the morning to clean the dog 🙈 that fur!! OMG
    In the end, she was clean for 10 minutes and ran into the dirt again 🙄

    Later we worked a little in the hostel, had lunch together, and in the afternoon I went downtown in a bus to walk around and eat a little at starbucks.

    In the evening, I made a banana bread for everyone! 🍌 We enjoyed the bread, sat together and made some Plans for tomorrow 🍇😄

    Before I went to bed, i played with the puppies again, plus the kitty 🐱

    First day in Mendoza

    March 10, 2020 in Argentina ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    This morning I arrived in Mendoza and went with a taxi to the hostel of Luis.
    He is building a hostel here and needs volunteers to help him. 3 other volunteers from brazil live here as well, together with a cat and a dog. 🐱🐶

    I couldn't sleep in the bus, so I got some rest in my new home (for a week), did laundry here and took a shower. 🙌

    I walked a little bit around the area, bought some foods and cooked lunch for Luis & me. The other volunteers went on a hike and will return in the evening. You can see a lot of streetdogs as well and how the neighbours feed then! 🥩🐕

    Later that day I took a bus downtown to discover Mendoza. It is greener and cleaner than Córdoba or Buenos Aires. Next to the road, there are grooves everywhere as a water system for the trees and the typical holders for the garbage.

    At around 8.15pm I took the bus back to the hostel, met the other volunteers for the first time and baked a bread for everyone 😄👍

    Daytrip to Alta Gracia (Córdoba)

    March 9, 2020 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    After work this morning, I was picked up by a friend called Alejandro, who I know from the app hang-outs. We walked through downtown a little and explained some buildings and monuments.

    Then, we took a bus to Alta Gracia, that needed around one hour to get there. 🚌

    First, we visited the Che Guevara museum, which is located in his old home. Afterwards, we had lunch and then walked to the house (also a museum) of Manuel de Falla, a famous spanish componist. 🎼

    In the end, we visited the cave of the holy virgin in a park. Around 8.15 pm we took the bus back to Córdoba to visit another church, where we accidently ended up in a demonstrations to the day of the woman worldwide! ♀️🤹‍♀️🤷

    Paseo de Las Artes en Córdoba

    March 7, 2020 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    I walked a little bit through downtown Córdoba today around the afternoon to visit a cloth fair. I eat a super pancho (like a hot dog) and left because I didn't like the spot. 😕

    A friend gave me a recommendation for a nice bar, so I walked into this direction.

    On my way, I found the Feria Artesanal with lots of cute little stands. It was evening already and the feria looked even better now than in the daytime sun. 😍

    I love those ferias with handmade stuff and of course I couldn't resist to buy something ... even more stuff for my heavy suitcase now 🙄🙈

    From Villa Icho Cruz to Cuesta Blanca

    March 4, 2020 in Argentina ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Ester picked me up this morning and we went straight to the bus terminal in Cordoba. We took the bus to Villa Icho Cruz. From there we wanted to walk alongside the San Antonio river to Cuesta Blanca.

    Unfortunately, the path was very far from the river, so we came up with the crazy idea of ​​walking through the river. As the river deepened more and more, we came up with the even crazier idea of ​​walking and climbing over the stones.

    At first there were visitors and people swimming from time to time, but after a few kilometers there was only vegetation and no human soul. The hours passed and we followed the river but had no GPS and didn't know how long it would take us to Cuesta Blanca.

    We made a lunch break, but with the time, my legs started hurting and we both started to worry. In addition, there were no roads to a city next to the river.

    Luckily, we discovered footprints and an abandoned house with a small path to a larger path and we had GPS again and could see where we were!!! We made it to Cuesta Blanca and from there, took a bus back to Cordoba.

    In the end, this was really a little adventure and many thanks for this beautiful day together, Ester!

    Ticket & backpack for Córdoba

    February 29, 2020 in Argentina ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    I bought the ticket to Córdoba today after my German classes at the Retiro - the central station of Buenos Aires.
    There is a separated bus station in the back.
    I will leave Monday in the night and arrive after 9 hours in the bus station of Córdoba... hopefully safe and sound. 🙈
    Afterwards I walked to the hostel, had one more lesson of German class in a Starbucks 😄 and packed all my stuff together in the backpack!
    It took me a while and I will have to leave some things here in the hostel for later, if possible ...
    Wish me luck for this first of many travels 🍀

    Btw ... tomorrow is my birthday 🎁

    El Ateneo and Obelisco

    February 27, 2020 in Argentina ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    Today we wanted to chill more and walk less. So first we went to the library „El Ateneo Grand Splendid“, that has a beautiful interior of an old theater with a cafe on the stage. 😍

    Afterwards, we chilled in a park in the sun and last but not least we walked to the obelisco to make some pics 📱😬

    I have my last shift in hostel colonial today! 😢
    Monday I will leave to Córdoba, Mendoza and finally to Chile! 🇨🇱

    Avellaneda & Tango Show

    February 26, 2020 in Argentina ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Last week, we booked a Tango Show for today.
    So Sarah & I met a little bit earlier to arrive on time ... in the end we arrived like 3 hours to early! 😂
    The tango show at Señor Tango is in the district Abellaneda (and not really a safe place at night).
    First we went for a walk, then we decided to return to a little park next to the bus stop and sit for a while.
    After some time, we walked to find a place to eat. Turned out all the restaurants were closed or had a bad reputation online, so we walked like a hour to find the Cafe Martinez 😋
    Since it was already dark and even the waitress recommended us NOT to walk, we took a Uber for only 100 pesos ... smart decision 😉
    The show was amazing, a little bit kitschy (with horses and a Evita song etc.) but the tango dances so beautiful!! 😍
    I will not talk about how we tried to find a bus stop close to the show, in the middle of the night, in some creepy street in Buenos Aires - South America - but we survived! 💪

    Chaosday with Sarah

    February 25, 2020 in Argentina ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    You probably ask why I call this a chaosday?
    Well, first Sarah and I went to the Eco parque again to see the cute little Pampa bunnies, where some weired teenager HIT her on the chest 😳
    Then we got almost killed by a thousand cars when crossing a giant street with a zebra crossing but NO traffic lights 😳
    Last but not least, we walked all the way to enter the Planetarium but they did not let us pass! 😳
    At least in the end we could see the Floralis Generica, where we took the Subte back to the hostel ... what a day!! 🤷‍♀️😱
