To me, easily the best thing about going to Latin America and Argentina in particular is the fact that you can visit places that you would never be able to visit in Europe. Although I studied in Buenos Aires, I tried to travel as much as possible – definitely worth it in a country like Argentina! This is a country that has amazing waterfalls set in beautiful rainforest in Iguazú in the North-West, wild-west style deserts with stunning salt flats in Salta in the North-East, and amazing glaciers in Patagonia to the south – an incredible combination! Argentina has landscapes that are like nothing you have ever seen before and I feel really lucky to have been able to explore at least part of this beautiful country.
So what have you got to lose? Argentina is an amazing country – I was a bit anxious before I went but I would definitely recommend it. I met some great friends that I am still in contact with and would like to go back to visit as soon as possible!
