2012 Week 12 – Buenos Aires, Argentina, Special Bucket Challenges!

19 Mar

Bucket Challenge: 5 Challenges to accomplish while visiting Argentina
(Ending 6th May 2012)

With a new job opportunity, we are going to stay in Buenos Aires Argentina for a month!! It is a great opportunity graced upon us 🙂 It is a new experience for both us, as we have not been to Argentina before, nor any countries located in South America.

We did some homework about the country, places to go, things to do and food to eat! Some information to share below (extracted from Lonely Planet)

Iguazu Falls

Argentina has gorgeous landscapes, cosmopolitan cities and lively culture. It is a traveler’s paradise. It stretches almost 3500km from Bolivia to the tip of South America. It is almost the size of India. There are mountains, waterfalls, glacier and shopping malls! Many opportunities to learn Spanish, tango and get to know the locals. Not to mention delicious steaks and busy night life.

So while we are there in Argentina for a month, we have come up specific bucket challenges for Argentina 🙂 (Actually the fact of being there is already a completion of one long-term bucket challenge of ours!!)

1. Take tango lessons and spend good quality fun time as a couple together!
2. Learn how to speak basic Spanish (at least 200 words)
3. Visit IGUAZU FALLS

Saltenas

4. Take cooking lesson and learn how to make local food (Saltenas)
5. Visit EL CALAFATE and THE PERITO MORENO GLACIER in Patagonia
