Buenos Aires is the capital and the largest city of Argentina and also one of the largest cities in Latin America. Buenos Aires is a multicultural city that always welcomed immigrants from all over the world. The city is a top tourist destination and is known for its protected Spanish European style architecture and rich cultural life. Buenos Aires has a lot to offer to its visitors. One of them is shopping. Everybody can find something to buy that fits their preferences in Buenos Aires. Let’s discover the shopping life of Buenos Aires.
I have traveled to 54 countries and most of the times alone, so that I can define myself as a solo female traveller but I have many friends and cousins who have children. I also met many travelers who hit the roads with their kids. Here are a few things I learned from them and
While we were staying in Buenos Aires, Argentina we visited Uruguay which is a stone’s throw away distance from Buenos Aires. With a one-hour ferry trip you can reach Colonia del Sacramento in Uruguay from Buenos Aires. We spent 5 days in Uruguay and visited one of the oldest towns in Uruguay; Colonia del Sacramento, the capital of Uruguay; Montevideo and Miami of South America; Punta Del Este. We found many common things between Uruguay and Argentina. Uruguay was a little bit expensive than Argentina though.
I have some good news for you. If you fly with Turkish Airlines your luggage won’t be a burden to you. Until your last moment in Istanbul you can enjoy your travel because you can drop your luggage at the Miniport offices, which are located in Taksim and Istanbul Ataturk Airport
The number of domestic flights in Turkey has been increasing in recent years because of the new airport constructions of the Turkish government and recent investments of the private airline companies. A flight ticket can be occasionally cheaper than a bus ticket owing to the promotion campaigns of the airlines.
My first visit to Buenos Aires and South America was in 2006 by myself. I only had stayed 4 days in Buenos Aires which captured my heart with its architecture, cuisine, friendly people and Tango. Last year I had the chance to visit Buenos Aires once again with my sister and a friend of mine. Three girls, we really had fun. This time I almost stayed a month in Argentina and visited Tigre, Cordoba, Mendoza, Salta, El Calafate and El Shanten besides Buenos Aires.
After a very interesting Chile trip, our next stop was Brazil. The main reason for our Brazil trip was the Carnival. My sister, a friend of mine who flew from Istanbul to join us, and I spent 15 days in Brazil. We visited Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Recife, Salvador de Bahia and Iguazu Falls. We really enjoyed the Rio and Recife carnivals of Brazil and its amazing nature. We were there during the carnival period so the prices were higher than normal time especially for accommodation. But Brazil is not the cheapest country in South America.

After spending three days and nights in Uyuni Salar which was an unforgettable experience, our trip ended at Portezuelo del Cajon (also called Hito Cajon) border which is between Chile and Bolivia. From this border, San Pedro de Atacama is 45 kilometres (28 miles) away. If you are going to cross this border, you should arrange your transportation ahead.
The real price of an airline ticket is not always the one written on it. Most of the times it actually is more than that. It may sound awkward to you but it is a fact because there are many hidden fees that airlines will charge you for. The prices on the websites and advertisements seem very reasonable and affordable but most of them have the hidden fees I’m going to tell you about.
Last year my sister and I headed to Bolivia after travelling in Peru. Same as before, we had very limited time for this beautiful country and we only spent a week there. We got the chance to visit the capital La Paz and Uyuni Salar Region. La Paz is the world’s highest administrative capital. The Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat which is 10,582 square kilometres (4,086 sq miles). Its area is almost equal the size of Lebanon. To see enough of the Uyuni area, you should spend at least 3 days to see the main attractions.
