On the Road with Killer Kyla

I skied every single day this winter. Literally. Teaching skiing in Park City, I had access to the best skiing the country on a daily basis. Not only was the whole experience ludicrously fun, but I also learned about the more technical aspects of the sport, which transformed my own skiing. Conclusion: it was an awesome winter. I … Continue reading On the Road with Killer Kyla

Back to Bloggin’

It has been a RIDICULOUS amount of time since my last blog post. It has only hit me that I'm home in the past few weeks. Yes I have been home for almost three months. But only lately has it really felt like it. I was in a bit of a daze for the past … Continue reading Back to Bloggin’

Gardens and Museums

I haven't seen as much of Buenos Aires as I would like. So on Saturday I took the day to myself and set out to check some adventures off my list. I visited the MALBA and the Jardín Botánico. Here are some snaps from my day. I hope to post again soon but my laptop … Continue reading Gardens and Museums

Iguazu: Big Waters

I am writing this post while sitting in my favorite place in Buenos Aires. It is called Libros del Pasaje and I have plans to move in permanently. Affordable yet delicious food, amazing atmosphere, perfect music (jazz at the moment), perfectly mismatched decor, and a green house dining room where the sun streams down on you as … Continue reading Iguazu: Big Waters

Be Back Soon, Patagonia

On our last day in El Chalten we got a bit lazy. We had planned to go on a shorter hike than the day before but ended up getting a later start than expected. Our day was still amazing though. We had noticed a creperie in town and figured we had to try it on … Continue reading Be Back Soon, Patagonia

How Fitz Roy Broke My Heart

This post will be heavy in photos and light in words. The reason being because there are few words to explain how beautiful this place is, and photos are only slightly more sufficient. On our second to last day in Patagonia, we woke up at 6 am to chase the sunrise. We got started later … Continue reading How Fitz Roy Broke My Heart

Why Did I Ever Leave El Chalten?

The drive to El Chalten should have only taken 2 hours. It took us 3. What did we do in that extra hour? Well we ogled at the landscape, ate lemon pie at 9:30 am, ran... no, sprinted after herds of sheep, and played with puppies. All perfectly legitimate reasons for arriving to El Chalten … Continue reading Why Did I Ever Leave El Chalten?

Perito Moreno Glacier aka Middle Earth

They should have filmed The Lord of the Rings in Patagonia. Can’t you see hobbits, orcs, and elves running up the mountains, fleeing across the lakes, and battling on the hillsides? I’m almost tempted to Photoshop fortresses and armies in to these photos… The dork in me was geeking out as we toured the Perito Moreno … Continue reading Perito Moreno Glacier aka Middle Earth

El Calafate

Patagonia is made of beautiful mountains, sweet dogs, and spectacular people. My adventures there began last Tuesday as I hopped on a plane to El Calafate with five other girls in my study abroad program. About four hours later we arrived at our hostel, Albergue & Hostal del Glacier Libertador and went straight to bed, … Continue reading El Calafate

Un día en Tigre

On Saturday my forehead changed colors.   Sorry mom, apparently I didn't put on enough sunscreen. Don't worry though, its actually just my forehead. I have Tigre to thank for my new lobster-inspired look. Tigre is a town about 20 miles north of Buenos Aires and is known for its winding canals and rivers. These are … Continue reading Un día en Tigre
