Mira Hola, I am planning a trip to Argentina next year starting in Buenos Aires. I am interested in hearing from anyone who has been there or is planning on going. I am learning to speak Spanish which I've been informed is a must. I'm planning to stay for a month. Looking to go during the Argentine spring or fall. Mira

comehikewithmike Hey Mira, I'm learning French at the moment and just found a site called LiveMocha.com. Looks good. I've done a few courses. But I think the real value with be talking with locals.

mtlmike Argentina is wonderful. Went to Buenos Aires, Bariloche, El Calafate, El Chalten, Puerto Madryn, Salta, and Mendoza regions. If any of that interests you, let me know and I'll give my thoughts on it concerning what I liked or didn't like. By the way, you'll love it!

Mira Hello to comehikewithmike and mtlmike.

I appreciate your comments and suggestions.

mtlmike, I am still pouring through lonely planet and other guides mainly focused on areas to stay, how to rent a place, guest houses, etc. Any advise on BA would be helpful. I would prefer a quite barrio to stay in. I am more into cafes, parks, walking, art galleries, tango, plus I am vegetarian. I'd be interested in knowing what you did not like. Did you spend any time in Palermo? I'm not sure of the other places you mentioned although the Mendoza region appeals, as well as El Calafate. Iguazu Falls is also on the list.
I've been told that it is best to go during the Argentine spring or fall and to avoid summer.

Todd Hey Mira. We just arrived in Montreal and were able to rent an apartment within three days. It was good to stay in a hostel and check out the different areas of the city before settling on a place. It turns out our first hostel was in the worst part of town, so it paid to arrive before choosing longer term accomm. Interesting wat you say about summer too, since we were planning to go then. hmmm.

Trave With a Mate.com Hey Todd. Thanks for taking a look. I'm looking for travellers to interview about their travels and help promote their blog sites too. If you're interested let me know, if not feel free to comment on any blogs you find. Hope you like. There will be more added in the coming days and weeks.

Todd Sounds great, especially as we're putting a lot of effort into getting traction with our blog (we call it Notes of a Globetrooper). I'll read your blog tomorrow and get in touch. Meanwhile, you've left the 'L' out of your name. :)

Mira Hi Todd, Sounds like an amazing but gruelling journey. Have you been in ARG before? This will be my first time. I am guessing you are from Australia. I lived in Sydney for many years. I am not sure exactly when I will be going but it would be cool to meet up with others in BA. Thanks, Mira

Todd No, never before. Can't speak Spanish either. But am really looking for Aconcagua and BA. Yes, I'm in Sydney at the moment, but we're off to Montreal in less than 2 weeks. Then on to BA from there. Still not sure when; we'll just go with the flow. But will certainly keep you updated.
