Amazing Argentina

Laura and I returned last week from an incredible journey to Argentina. We spent the first 2 days exploring our neighborhood in Buenos Aires and then headed south to Patagonia for 4 days. Laura described being in the Patagonian wilderness as “what heaven should look like” and I couldn’t agree more. But we had to leave our version of paradise and head back to BA for 4 more days of sightseeing. Hopefully the pictures speak for themselves, this might just be one of my favorite trips yet. And did I mention the dulce de leche ice cream?

  1. Great pics! Is that Laguna Torre in the picture with the teal lake? The glacier has retreated quite a lot if so – when I was there the glacier was *in* the lake, and there was chunks of ice floating in it.

    PS – dulche de leche EVERYTHING! So yum!

    • Thanks so much! The lake is actually Laguna de los Tres. I would have liked to see Laguna Torre but we didn’t have enough time. And I am still dreaming about the ice cream… and cookies too!
