Iguassu Falls – Argentina Side

Iguassu Falls - Argentina Side

19th June 2014 I can’t believe I left it so long to write about Iguassu Falls, our last stop in Argentina. It was such an amazing, indescribable experience that I’ve been finding myself more and more reluctant to attempt to put it into words, and by now it has already…

Salta, Argentina

Salta, Argentina

Running away from slightly-above-our-budget Chile, we headed instead to Argentina.
