Iguazu Falls is located at the corner of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. It’s an hour and half flight from Buenos Aires making it an easy day trip. Technically, there are two sides to the waterfall, just like Niagra. Except if you are visiting Iguazu and want to visit both sides, you will need to obtain a visa to cross over to Brazil. With our limited time in Argentina, we opted to just do the Argentine side of the falls so that we could visit in one day and then leave early the next morning for El Calafate in Southern Argentina.
He’s my travel companion. Together we have gone across the US and the world and we don’t plan to stop anytime soon. He’s probably the most well-traveled Panda you’ll ever meet, and he’s not even six inches tall.
I’m tired of feeling like I’m perpetually behind on my household chores. Like when I run the dishwasher when I already have half of the next load piling up in the sink. Or like when I do two loads of laundry, when there are still two more to go.
It’s that hamster wheel feeling; like you are doing everything you should but still aren’t going anywhere.
Located just an hour outside of Sacramento, Sutter Creek is a convenient weekend getaway worth its weight in gold.
If the name Sutter is familiar, it's because of John Sutter (or maybe his namesake the late Sutter Brown) who is associated with the California Gold Rush and for the establishment of Sutter’s Fort, located in my current home town of Sacramento.
Sutter Creek itself maintains much of the gold rush charm. Historic buildings line the main road, which would make you feel like you are going back in time if not for the parked cars that also line the road.
