For my birthday this year, I knew I wanted to get out of the country — I was born on March 3rd, and I always end up with the worst weather for it if I stick around the Mid-Atlantic! Tom had the grand idea to head to Mendoza, Argentina to celebrate Year 29, which is Argentina’s wine region. Wine and warm weather? I couldn’t pass up the opportunity! I knew this trip was going to be one for the books, but I was surprised at how much I fell in love with Argentina.
In the first part of my Mendoza Travel Guide series, I’ll give you the low down on everything you need to know before heading to Argentina: the culture, where to stay, and all about downtown Mendoza/the day trips out of the city. Next week in the Mendoza Travel Guide part 2, I’ll go a bit more in-depth about the wine tasting experience — because it’s incredibly different than what you’re used to in the States!
