Ole Amigas!

Leigh Court and I are back from our month-long trip to Santiago, Chile and Buenos Aires, Argentina and we had a blast! It was the adventure of a lifetime, and I took advantage of every minute of it J

One of the highlights for me definitely was learning to tango in La Boca. The teacher was great…

… but one of our, er, travelling companions, was not quite as into the lessons as I was.

Turns out the La Boca/Caminito area of Buenos Aires was where a lot of Italian immigrants first arrived in Argentina, so while Leigh didn’t tango, she was at least interested in seeing the area where her relatives arrived 60+ years ago. The area is painted in brilliant colors to cheer up the poor residents who live in the area now.

But of course the highlight for me was seeing my favorite band, the Rolling Stones, play in both cities, Santiago and Buenos Aires. This is the farthest I’ve ever traveled to see them, but it was totally worth it! And 58,000 fans in Buenos Aires agreed with me J

I definitely got “satisfaction” from this trip! The adrenaline rush hasn’t completely left me yet, and hopefully I will find as unique a trip for Leigh and I for our next adventure.

How about you? Ever had a vacation you’ll remember forever? Share!
