Aerolineas Argentinas: Inaugural Flight of the fourth Boeing 737 MAX- 8

Last Tuesday March 6th 2018 I had the privilege of participating in the inaugural flight of the fourth Boeing 737MAX-8 of Aerolineas Argentinas. As being an ARPlus Gold Member, the company invited me to this unique experience, which I shared with seven other members and with Alejandra, who works in the frequent passenger program of our beloved Aerolíneas Argentinas. AR, as it’s also known, for the Argentines it’s a pride, the representation of our national flag in the skies around our country and the world, connecting us to shorten distances in our big country and of course, connecting with USA, … Continue reading Aerolineas Argentinas: Inaugural Flight of the fourth Boeing 737 MAX- 8

Restaurante de la Bodega Ruca Malen en Mendoza: una visita obligada

El día martes 6/3/2018 visité la Bodega Ruca Malen, en la zona de Luján de Cuyo a unos kilómetros de la capital mendocina.

Argentina, so many places to visit…

My country has a lot to offer, Argentina has a unique mixture of landscapes, so different to each other. We have all different kind of weather, mountains, countryside, sea, lakes, desert and jungle, big cities, smaller, charming towns. My last trip inside Argentina was to Ushuaia and El Calafate, in October 2016, two magical places, with only one visit for sure isn’t enough. As a child I visited El Calafate, in the 80’s, on a family road trip, with my dad driving a Ford Falcon around the Argentine routes. After leaving Buenos Aires we stopped a few days in my … Continue reading Argentina, so many places to visit…

Mendoza, land of wine, Aconcagua Mountain and much more

Now, I’m sharing this post about the city of Mendoza, and some places near this provincial capital. I had visited Mendoza three times and I know I’ll go back. It’s so beautiful and a lot to do there. My first visit to the land of wine was in April 2006, the second in October 2007 and finally November 2015. Except for the 2006 visit of a week, the other two occasions were only 3-day stays; in fact Mendoza Capital is ideal for a typical weekend long getaway. The City of Mendoza has several squares, starting at Independence Square in the … Continue reading Mendoza, land of wine, Aconcagua Mountain and much more

Mendoza, tierra del vino, el Aconcagua y mucho más

Siguiendo con los post pendientes de mi país, escribo sobre la ciudad de Mendoza, y algunos lugares cercanos a esta capital de provincia. Llevo tres visitas, por lo que volvería y volvería. Lo que pasa que la Argentina tiene tanto para recorrer que se prioriza lo que no se conoce. Primera visita a la tierra del vino fue en abril de 2006, segunda vez en octubre 2007 y por último noviembre de 2015. Todas las veces, me quedé con sabor a poco.  Y eso que no tomo vino!!! Sin embargo, obviamente visito las bodegas y hago las degustaciones. El clima … Continue reading Mendoza, tierra del vino, el Aconcagua y mucho más
