Butting up to the Puerto Madero neighbourhood in Buenos Aires is the ecological reserve. A huge park, right on the Rio de la Plata. The park is full of willows, pampas grass, and walking paths, and is a great way to spend a morning. Beware – because of super wide paths, there is not a
I’m back with Travel Tuesday this week friends! I’ve got so many non-restaurant related posts all bundled up inside me that I’m just about bursting at the seams! So first – thank you – for being patient well I show off my sweet restaurant review skills to Tourism Richmond (hi, guys!) And before I leave
San Telmo on Sundays is packed full of antiques, tourists and locals. But weekdays. Weekdays are special. Quiet streets. Locals in bars. And sparsely attended afternoon-long happy hours and tango shows in the Plaza Dorrego. Later today, I’m going to do a Foto Ruta in San Telmo. I quite excited, and hope I love it,
Ok friends, here is the promised post on how to get a last minute trip to Antarctica. Because getting to Antarctica is expensive. Really expensive. This year (2012) January and early February rates ranged from $6,000 to $9,000 per person for the cheapest room on the boat (often a triple or quad). Late February and
Happy Valentine’s Day! Well, with that out of the way, let me get on with it! This Travel Tuesday is going to be more along the lines of my recent Antarctica posts (see Days 1-3 and Day 4) than a regular Travel Tuesday post. But, since it is Tuesday and I’m talking about travel, this
We got back from Antarctica this morning, and I don’t yet have the words to describe it. Our trip was everything that I hoped it would be, and so much more. I’ve got hundreds of pictures (culled from thousands), thousands of words of stories, and all sorts of advice about how to do it on
Remember Best Of? If you aren’t my mom (aka, you have’t been following since the very beginning of this blog just over one year ago – whoa), Best Of was a Sunday round up of my favourite travel, food, photography, and design posts on the web. It sort of fizzled in April, and while I’ve
Last time we were in Argentina, we didn’t take the ferry across the Rio de la Palta to visit Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay. A small city, only 40kms from Buenos Aires, as the crow flies (or, in this case, as the ferry goes). This time, we were in Uruguay anyway shooting Morgan and Agustin’s wedding
Once again, I’m a little late with my Travel Tuesday post. Or, if I’m being totally honest here – cause that is how I roll – on Tuesday I forgot it was Tuesday and posted my Argentine Asado post. A the joys of being newly self-employed! No fear, I’ll just give you a “Travel Thursday”
Today is quite literally a Travel Tuesday. At 12:26 PST we flew from PSP to LAX from where boarded a flight to Houston. I’m posting this in the boarding lounge in Houston awaiting our 9:00PM flight to Buenos Aires. We’ll spend the next week in Uruguay and then move into an apartment in Buenos Aires
The last stop on our summer trip was Barcelona. It was my first time in Barcelona. My first time in Spain. I fell in love. In fact, it reminded me somewhat of Buenos Aires. Where I will be in just over two weeks. Be still, my heart. If you are wondering where that awesome terrace
Our third stop on our summer trip was our week at the Chateau Ventenac in (surprise, surprise) Ventenac, near Narbonne. Food. Friends. Wine. Day trips to markets and to Carcassone. What could be better?
Our next stop on our summer trip was the Loire Valley. Just a day. I was incredibly sick. But it was as beautiful as I remembered. Chambord. Chenoceau. Little car. Amazing day.
J’adore Paris. Images from the first stop on our summer trip.
This post is sort of like a double whammy. Not only do you get sweet New York Travel Tuesday photos, but you get to see how the first roll of B&W went! Exciting, right? On September 30 – October 2, the Suter kids went for a weekend in NY. We stayed in the Syncapse pad
