Updates and Links for March 2012

The weather has finally cooled off in Buenos Aires and people started to fill up the city coming back from vacation. With only 15 days left in this city, I’m really going to miss this place but I’m ready to keep on moving. We’ve had been here for over 3 months. It’s been good.

On April 14th, I’ll be traveling west from Buenos Aires going to Rosario, Cordoba, Mendoza, then finally Santiago, Chile by April 22nd. I’ve never been to Chile so I’m excited to check it out. We plan to stay in Santiago till May 2nd and possibly fly back to the US afterwards.

On Art of Backpacking, we have our new apps page you can check out on the menu. We expected that our Eat The World app would be released a month ago but Apple has decided to waste our time and make development more difficult. We hope to have our app completed soon. In the meantime, if you have any recommendations for what to put in our app page, do let us know in the comments.

5 Simple ways to travel like an Architect on Tend To Travel: I love the drawings in this article. A different touch to the usual photographs. The humor is really great too as I have no idea what it’s like to be an architect.

Meeting Panda Bear for the First Time – Chengdu, Sichuan, China on Runaway Juno: I’ve been to the Panda Research Center twice and loved it both times. The pandas in the pictures are super cute. Juno took some really great shots of the pandas eat, sleeping, and playing (all they really do).

How to not look like a backpacker while living out of a backpack on C’est Christine: Luckily I don’t have to worry about jewelry or makeup.

Costa Rica – Beans and Rice, Rice and Beans on Nomadic Foodie:  I’m a huge fried plantains fan and any dish that includes it, I love it.

Travel without a plan: My Curacao experiment on Latin Abroad: Ever get on a plane and have no idea what you’re going to do when you get there? Maria did and she writes about her experience. Really great pictures of her trip as well.

Couscous history: A delicious photo essay on Travel The Middle East: Definitely looks delicious!

    I loved Santiago!  And you must spend a few days in Valparaiso, only an hour bus ride away.  And if you can swing it and are a wino like me, rent a car and check out the bodegas in Casablanca Valley.

    You’re going to love Chile! I think it was my favourite country in South America. Santiago is such a great place to just spend time…

    Thanks for including me here Michael. I’m glad you now know how architects travel these days. They’re pretty much the same as how everyone else in the world travels..i think..;-)
