Apparently Buenos Aires is the place to go if you’re on a budget

I was haphazardly browsing homeaway.com because I was in daydream mode. I was picturing prancing around top notch travel destinations in the perfect outfit…no really I was. Then I stumbled upon THIS AMAZING APARTMENT in Buenos Aires’s Recoleta neighborhood. The location, furnishings, and views are all stunning and then I got to the crazy part…it’s $490/week and $1390/month in the high season. Yes, Alex and I could stay there for an entire month well under $1500. Prices like that are unheard of for me.

Now I just need to find some cheap air fare and some more vacation days. gahhhhhhh

Buenos Aires was already on the list of places I really really really want to go to…now it’s numero uno.

Santa Fe was great…and now we’re back.

Santa Fe… awww Santa Fe. When we first arrived I couldn’t help but realize how very much like Phoenix it was. Except for the absence saguaro cacti…I half expected to be on my way to my grandmother’s house.

We rented an exceptionally adorable adobe styled casita 8 blocks from the famous Plaza. It was so cute and fully stocked with anything we may need. Tin foil, ice, batteries, and washer/dryer were in full abundance and we took advantage of it all! And for $115 including tax per night…it really couldn’t be beat. Next time you’re traveling ANYWHERE check out homeaway.com. It’s based here in Austin and so far we’ve used them for European and American accommodations and have been so pleased each and every time!

We jogged into the Plaza of Santa Fe on the first day and immediately met friendly locals that directed us to their favorite hot spots. It was incredible how helpful these locals were. Giving us directions to churches, restaurants, and parks. We were so grateful for their hospitality and willingness to talk art and culture.

There were many high points to this three and half day stop. But my favorites included perusing dozens of art galleries (there are over 200 in the city), eating local Santa Fe fare, visiting the Georgia O’Keefe Museum, and window shopping. We even saw the oldest church and house in the U.S.

And now, we’re back. It was nice that we came back on a Friday so that we had an extra two days to settle in. Our yard was a lush, green jungle that resembled FernGully. Guess my dad’s secret fertilizer recipe worked…it’s a highly protected mix of manure, oregano, and the sweat from a mature bison.

And because of all the refreshing inspiration I gathered throughout the entire trip I’m elbow deep in two craft/art projects. It’s totally Martha Stewart-ville on our dining room table at the moment!
