The completed itinerary of a fantatsic trip!

Its sad to think that our 'once-in-a-life-time-trip' to Latin America is actually over! But what a trip it was! We have seen beaches, deserts, jungles, mountains, volcanoes, forests, salt flats and some of the most beautiful sights the world has to offer. We also have checked many things off our bucket-lists! This blog entry is just a summary of where we went plus our highlights on each leg of our trip. Latin America may be over but there is still plenty of travelling to be seen in New Zealand. Thanks for reading and see you on our next adventure! Happy travels!

Our two starting points in Latin America. Mexico in May and Colombia in September

Mendoza: Argentina's wine country


Mendoza was our final trip in journey through South America, so to celebrate, we toasted to a nearly perfect, yet still once-in-a-life-time, voyage.  Because Mendoza was well-known for producing Argentina’s best and more famous wine, we reckoned we should find out for ourselves....

Buenos Aires and New Years


Buenos Aires: an incredible multicultural city full of life and a pleasant surprise as we normally don’t like huge cities. Luckily, Harry had an old school friend, Niccolo, who was living in BA when we arrived and we were shown around all the hot spots, beautiful parks and how to make real empanadas! If I could describe BA in one word it would probably be empanadas... or mate... ok, empanadas AND mate!
