For over 20 years I have been an avid and passionate traveler, having studied, lived and travelled in Europe, Asia, Canada, South America, the Caribbean, and USA. In September 2006 I made the life-altering decision to move to Buenos Aires, Argentina, the "Paris of the South". For a year I lived like a local, learned Spanish, developed beautiful friendships and enjoyed delicious cuisine. To put it simply, I had the best social life of my life.
After 5 years being back in Canada and continuing to travel the world (Ireland, America, Asia and my home province of Newfoundland), Argentina beckons once again. In late 2012 I will be returning to Buenos Aires to share my love of this beautiful part of the world with other like-minded travelers. If you’re an exotic traveler by heart, or you naturally seek out fun and exciting activities that can be classified as “something different”, then this adventure is for you.
To share my experiences and knowledge of Argentina with you, I’m planning a fun-filled travel adventure for a small group of Canadian woman in November 2012. The experience includes a 12-day escorted and personalized tour starting in bustling Buenos Aires where you’ll get swept up in tango and other Latin American dances, pamper yourself at a local spa/salon, shop until you absolutely drop and indulge in delicious foods and famous Argentine wines. Then you'll travel to a traditional town in the Argentine pampas where you can unwind with nature.
As a free-spirited traveler, I enjoy my own special time to explore a city. So, we’ll make sure that you will have pockets of time to make your own personal discoveries. Your stay will be in comfortable, central accommodations close to many restaurants, cafes and shops.
Here are some articles that sing the praises of both Buenos Aires and the Argentina countryside. Feel free to explore them:

Traveler Alert: As of April 2012, one Canadian dollar = 4 Argentine pesos. That's four times the value for your money!

Remember - Argentina awaits. Let´s Chin Chin!
Note: Chin Chin! is an expression used in Argentina when toasting with friends, family and new acquaintances. It conveys a feeling of warmth, happiness and fun of just being "in the moment" and the enjoyment of savouring that first sip of wine.
