I met Sarah and Corinna, from Germany, on a Safari tour in El Calafate, Argentina, along with our tour guide, Fran! My first cool people in Argentina. As you can see we enjoyed our tour so much we went out for dinner and drinks together the next night.
.Jessica and Silvina from Argentina. Met them at my hotel in Calafate and we got friendly because I told them about the city since I had already been there a week – all in Spanish! We almost hiked together in Chalten and had a wonderful time talking about life and they taught me how to properly enjoy a matte!
Nath and Flo from France. Met them in Ushuaia on the way to the Laguna Verde. I didn’t know you had to hitch a ride there, so they were my first hitching partners! We hiked through tons of mud, and somehow their shoes were spotless and mine were a mess. They’re also on a break with work to live their lives.
Maria who I met in Bariloche on the bus from the airport. Turns out she quit her corporate job to travel for a while, and we had a lot in common. And, looks like we have some travel paths in common, looking forward to meeting again!
Leila and Martha from the north of Argentina. We met in Bariloche and traveled together in Villa La Angostura. Absolutely LOVELY and they always made sure I got home safely at night. Thank you!
Lou and his family. Argentinians who live in California. We met because Loui saw I was alone for a boat tour and immediately took care of me. I had great company the whole day, meal companions and wonderful conversation!
Lourens from South Africa. We met in Villa La Angostura and ended up traveling the same way for a while. Thanks to him I saw small towns I never would have even heard of, hitchhiked, slept on a police office floor (!!) and ate lots of good food as he’s an excellent cook!
My yerba mate friends! Took an amazing class with Melanie, Mera, and Sofia in Bariloche. This taught me so much about the culture and history of mate and made me enjoy the drink even more, thank you!
Michael, who I met on Easter Island because he had picked up my friends hitch-hiking there the day before! We had a great day exploring the island in his rental car.
