When you are traveling with kids it is important to find balance. It can be challenging to keep everyone happy, which is why we always do our research about what child friendly activities are available in each location we visit. I am not one to shy away from dragging my children to museums and art galleries, but I always balance that with attractions and activities which are fun and kid friendly.
Last night, as we sat around our dinner table in Peru, we did some reflection about our favourite (and least favourite) places that we have visited so far. It’s always fun to write a reflection post, so I decided to do one for the first country we traveled in South America – Argentina. The BestContinue reading “Best and Worst of Argentina Travel”
Now I know that saying you don’t like the food of a particular country can stir up a whole lot of emotions, but you know what. I’m going to say it anyway. We didn’t really like the food in Argentina. Although, let me start with a couple disclaimers. Firstly, we were not eating at eachContinue reading “Why We Were Not The Biggest Fans of the Food in Argentina”
Patagonia was high on our bucket list, and we wanted to get the most out of our trip to the south of Argentina and Chile. However, since we had kids in tow, we were not able to do all of the more adventurous things that we would have done in our unattached days, but asContinue reading “Our Best Photos of Patagonia”

From there we went south, so it’s probably no surprise that all of our top 5 photos come from Argentinian Patagonia. Bariloche We had a few ups and downs during our visit to Bariloche, but one of the upsContinue reading “Our Top 5 Photos of Argentina”
Bariloche was our first introduction to Patagonia, and god damn, we were so excited. Mendoza had been a let down for us (our fault though, not Mendozas), so we were really looking forward to what Bariloche had to offer. From the moment we exited the airport we were in awe. A massive, clear blue lake,Continue reading “The Ups and Downs of Bariloche, Argentina”
The southern Patagonian ice field is one of the most important collections of glaciers in the world. The ice field which spreads along the Andes for 350 km’s. There are several places to see the glaciers of the Southern Patagonian ice field, but the two most accessible are in El Chalten and El Calafate. AsContinue reading “Exploring the Glaciers of Argentinian Patagonia”
There are four family friendly day hikes that depart from El Chalten, all of which are in the 6km – 8km range. All but one of the hikes do involve a bit of uphill, but our 4 year old was able to complete them all with only minimal assistance.
Sitting on a patio in the sun, a glass of malbec in your hand, looking out over the fields of grapes with the Andes in the background. Mendoza. The primary wine growing region of Argentina, specializing in Malbec. So that’s what a day in Mendoza should look like right? Right. Our time in Mendoza lookedContinue reading “Our Epic Mendoza Fail”
