Argentinian like very much their Ice cream, when in Rome… have a Gelato! maybe is their Italian heritage đŸ™‚ D-licious!

Our F8 trip is already in its 19th  Week and the countdown Will start soon. My family and I are spending 4 Nights in San Carlos de Bariloche and the hotel is Costa del  Nahuel , everything in Argentina has been handcrafted by my network travel partners – Designer Trips ,  Matias and Lucas , and everything has been perfect – length in each place and lodging accordingly to our budget.  We are experience it to plan it in the future for you . đŸ™‚ exciting !

We entered Argentina by bus and I feel good and confident that the time they took in the border, frontier, with bus and luggage manually checked, probably avoid further problems . We saw several police bording the bus.  We, later, exited the bus for X-raying all the luggage.  After which, we were on our way again.  The advatanges of riding by bus are the amazing views , the forced time to sleep and read, and the affordability when you are a party of 4.  After many buses with different carriers,  I must say that our Favorite attendant, Patricia  (Cata International) was outstanding and attentive.  A bonus was that the meals on this route, Mendoza -Barcelona, where awesome – all full meals, breakfast and snack.  The excitement to  see the  Andes mountain range and spot the white tips in the summer “mode” was like a JACKPOT.  The  word, “el niño”, is always discussed to explained  the drastic weather changes including: dry rivers , unusually hot or cold, as well as other phenomena. In any case, we are fascinated with the Patagonia landscapes , the pristine lakes , the easy going and safe streets , the amazing  blend of cultures in the hotels architecture with structures resembling Switzerland  The healthy air and very low humidity breathed in is incredible.

We are getting used to sweets and other non-traditional items for breakfast instead of the eggs , ham or sausages.  A good “asado” or Italian pasta for lunch is the norm with whatever is leftover for dinner.  Argentina was at the top of the list for my husband  and so far the first 5 days in this land did not disappoint a bit!

Stay tune for next week where we will go to Perito Moreno Glacier and first hand feel the glaciers .

Please write me if you have any questions at ANYTIME !
