Lately, I've been dreaming of Argentina. Buenos Aires has always been a dream location of mine, with its lively and colourful barrios such as La Boca and Recoleta which are teeming with tangos, beautiful architecture, and culture. What fascinates me about the Argentine capital is its eclecticism, each barrio has its own unique character so there's always something new to see. But it's not just the capital city that has sparked my interest, Mendoza- the wine capital of Argentina- also has its own soul and has a more laid back vibe. You won't have any trouble finding something to pair with those fine tipples either. If you're a meat lover like me then Argentina is paradise. Asado- an Argentine barbeque- is the perfect way to enjoy the local cuisine and if anything I'm slightly concerned it will be so good that it ruins beef for me forever!
However, while its cities should be top of any South American itinerary, no discussion about Argentina would be complete without mentioning Patagonia. This region stretches right to the southernmost point of South America, with a wide array of natural wonders to explore such as Argentina's lake district in the Rio Negro province and the world famous Perito Moreno glacier in El Calafate. There's no better way to finish your Argentine adventure than by visiting the end of the earth. Ushuaia- capital of the Tierra del Fuego province- claims the title of being the world's southernmost city and can cater to a wide array of outdoor pursuits.
