Iguazu 8775138259_19a743b435_oArgentina! A country that has everything, whether you like nature, culture, gastronomy, adventure, luxury, sports…

Buenos Aires, with its european tradition, its museums, theatres, restaurants. With its picturesque neighbourhoods, some bohemian, some elegant, some historical…But Argentina is not only Buenos Aires!

From Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world, to La Quiaca, located on the border with Bolivia, 5121 kilometres of amazing places are waiting to be discovered: the huge blocks of ice falling from the Perito Moreno glacier; the majestic Iguazu falls surrounded by dense jungle on the border with Brazil ; the extensive Ibera wetlands with yacares, capybaras, deers and hundreds of birds species; rivers, mountains, salt deserts, vineyards, colourful mountains, lakes, eternal snows, endless sand beaches….penguins and whales, llamas and monkeys….

You like adventure? Then you won’t be disappointed! Rafting, first class skiing, trekking, parapente and kitesurf, diving and biking. Anything you need to keep your adrenaline rising….

Driven by a bit of nostalgia, and a great pride!! I prepared a slide show which (tries to) capture the natural beauty of Argentina, but also its people and traditions… The music I chose is a song by the talented Gustavo Santaolalla called “De Ushuaia a La Quiaca” (From Ushuaia to La Quiaca), and that is the way I present it, from south to north…

I intend in future to post specifically about some of the most beautiful places of Argentina in detail…

I hope you enjoy it!
