Hey from London! After four epic months in Buenos Aires, it was time to say adios to Argentina.  Danny and I really enjoyed our time living the Porteno lifestyle and we were very sad to leave – but then again, there was summer in Europe to look forward to.

Move over Indiana Jones, because Olivia Oyster is about to take on The Devil’s Throat in Jujuy, Argentina.

It’s a five kilometre hike outside of the town of Tilcara, passing through mountains in […]
