If you are looking to travel from Chile to Argentina, a scenic and unique experience is to go by road. From Santiago, Argentina’s wine region of Mendoza is a full day’s bus journey away. Yet there is little chance you will get bored on this drive, with spectacular views around every twist and turn.
After it being near the top of our USA bucket list for years, we finally got to experience how grand the Grand Canyon really is. After our visit many people asked us, “Which rim of the Grand Canyon is best?”
When I was working in travel, a lot of clients planning a visit to South America would ask if Santiago in Chile was worth spending a few days. As I discovered, the city is surprisingly cosmopolitan, friendly and artistic. If you like food and wine, architecture, great views and a bit of quirkiness, you’re going to love a Santiago stopover.
Los Angeles is an interesting place; life moves to a different rhythm and put simply, anything goes. I was recently in Los Angeles for a few days with two friends and in order to get the most out of our stay and explore different scenes of the Hollywood state, we decided to hire a car.
Cuba is hands-down the most fascinating place I’ve ever visited – photographically speaking, too. On my first day in Havana my camera might as well have been surgically attached to my hands; I just couldn’t stop snapping. Oh, look at that cool vintage car! Click. Ooh, an abandoned theatre! Click, click, click.
Arriving into Bariloche, Argentina, you could be mistaken for thinking that you’re flying into a European alpine destination. The region’s landscape is very similar to the EU, dense with cypress trees, mountains, lakes and quaint villages. I felt I had been transported from South America direct to Western Europe!
I’m your average modern day traveller. In other words, I live by the motto ‘photo or it didn’t happen’. I upload my best shots to Instagram, I own a selfie stick (please reserve any judgement until you’ve travelled solo) and I always research my next destination on Google Images.
