After a few weeks of deliberation, I have officially decided.
I’M GOING TO ARGENTINA!!!!
I knew I would come back to this decision. Argentina was always my first choice. After I wrote the post Argentina vs Thailand, the response to go to Argentina was overwhelming. I cross checked some money and budgeting problems, e-mailed a few people, looked at apartments, and finally made the decision.
As of right now, I’m planning on living in Buenos Aires, Argentina for 3 to 4 months, starting in August/September. I decided to stay in one central location as opposed to moving around South America for various reasons. I want the experience of living like a local for a few months. I want to take my time and explore the country. I want to RELAX. At this point in my life, the last thing I need is a bunch of moving around and stress. My anxiety attacks have been getting more frequent and stronger, so I really just need to chill out for a few months.
I do plan on going to Brazil for a few weeks. I’ve ALWAYS wanted to go to Brazil, plus it’s a great gym motivator. I can’t be on the beaches of Rio De Janeiro looking a hot mess right? Right.
Guys, seriously. I’m so excited. I know this is the best decision for me. I’ve always been a sulty, sexy, South American goddess at heart. And can we talk about how I’ll be able to drink Malbec wine ALL THE TIME?! Be still my heart.
So, this is where I ask for help from all of my lovely, gorgeous readers. What should I do while I’m there? What is a typical daily budget? Where should I live? Any apartment rental information? Beaches? Nightlife? Wine? Food? Tango classes? STEAK?! Give me all of your Argentinian wisdom.
