I’m hoping to go to Argentina next year so I’m just starting to do my research on where to go. Salta looks like somewhere I would love to visit. Thanks for the detailed post
Ahhhh, I loved Salta. This was our first city in Argentina after crossing in from Bolivia. We got integrated quickly into the Argentine way of life–ie, eating ,massive steak dinners after midnight and drinking wine and dancing until the wee hours of the morning. And the area around Salta was stunning, too. Cafayate was one of our favorite cities on our entire year long RTW trip. Biking to and from all the different wineries was such a great way to spend some days. And Torrontes, yummy. Great post to get me all nostalgic about that region.
I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
Thank you Margaret for your kind comment. I’m really glad you like the Velvet Escape blog. I hope to keep publishing interesting, inspirational and exciting new articles! Hope to hear from you again soon.
