Posted in , , , ,

If Argentina has the best of anything, it’s food. Argentines structure their days around food and drink. Breakfast is not a big meal, desayuno consists of coffee or tea and a little bite to eat like some toast with jam. Wait just a couple hours and it’s time for tea, enjoy a couple cookies with another…

Adare, Ireland Literally, written out plans. It was 2006, I was 19 years old and on my first overseas adventure.
