Argentina, Cordoba, Wishes for you

Argentina, Cordoba, Wishes for you

I know it has nothing to do with the travels, but I am at the internet cafe, waiting for the bus to Salta (Argentina) and reading, listening some inspiring stories.

If you are still reading my post I am truly wishing you peace, harmony, laughter and love. Imagine that you have them all in this moment. How great it feels, hah?

I have couple of photos from Mar de Plata, Buenos Aires, Rosario and Cordoba which I will publish one day and being honest I cannot wait to visit last city in Argentina and finally move to Bolivia. I need a fresh culture, I feel thirsty of adventure. I think I found one reason why I travel. I am just easily getting bored when I am stuck and travel makes me feel like I am on the constant path into unknown, into surprise, into beautiful life.

Again imagine: peace, harmony, laughter and love.
Great hah?

Argentina, Rosario, 5 things not to miss in Argentina

Argentina, Rosario, 5 things not to miss in Argentina

Just for fun I decided to point out 5 things not to miss in each country. As I am still in Argentina lets start from A.

1. Asado - if you think you can cook beef, or your father is doing great barby, go to Argentina and you will never look at the steak the same. It is more then brilliant. There is no word that explains how delicious Argentinian beef can be well prepared by Argentinian. With the good company, wine and music you will never forget this country.

2. Foz de Iguazu - if you want to see a mindblowing waterfall before you die, forget about Niagara. Go to the ARg-Brasilian border to see some extraordinary nature.

3. Perito Moreno - You hate cold? Dont worry you will never say this after visiting that awesome glacier. Officially you dont have to go to Antarctica to feel the power of ice.

4. Usuaya - Sounds cheesy, but this is officially fin del mundo, the end of the world. As they say where you start dreaming. Do some snow trekking in Terra del Fuego and feel happy warming up at the fireplace afterwards.

5. Tango - watch 60 years old passionate Argentinians dancing this most sensual dance over the planet. Or learn it if you have time and patience. Just to keep up with the South American beardy casanovas.

Michał Lange, One of us has gone forever ... =(

Michał Lange, One of us has gone forever ... =(

One of my best mates from primary school has gone=( ...

Odszedl jeden z moich najlepszych kumpli z podstawowki - Michal Lange. Chlopak ktoremu wiele zawdzieczam: niezapomniane chwile smiechu w czasie gdy mieszkalem w Gdansku z rodzicami, szalony przepelniony lzami smiechu i bulami brzucha wypad w Bieszczady czy jachtem po pochylniach na Pomorzu, inspirujace rozmowy o designie, kobietach, muzyce, popkulturze, pierwsze rify gitarowe ktore szlifowalismy godzinami, a przede wszystkim pierwsze kroki w designie, pierwsze komendy w Photoshopie, pierwsze slowa otuchy w moich nieudolnych projektach gdy pomieszkiwalismy razem w Sopocie na 3go Maja.

Dzieki niemu dostalem pierwsza prace jako grafik - amator. Gdyby nie Michal nie wiem czy ktokolwiek by uwierzyl ze jestem w stanie cos zaprojektowac. Dzieki Michalowi zdobylem pierwsze niezbedne doswiadcznie, jakze niezbedne w przyszlosci. Kto wie czy nie dzieki niemu po czesci podrozuje sobie po swiecie majac wewnetrzny spokoj i wiedzac ze w kazdej chwili moge przysiasc za Photoshopem i zrobic przyzwoita strone.

Ostatni raz widzialem Michala w bardzo kiepskim stanie w Spatifie w czasie krecenia Nocy w Trojmiescie IV. Jakbym rozmawial z innym czlowiekiem. Bylo to w 2005 roku jesienia. Chyba nie bylem swiadomy ze cos sie dzieje zlego... Szkoda moze moglbym pomoc...

Pozniej znowu sie zgadugadalismy na Gadu. Obiecalem ze przywioze mu sliczna Filipinke. Zartowalismy jak za dawnych lat. Bylem pewien ze wrocil stary dobry Langus, czy wczesny Jimmi Turturo... Niestety.

Jedynie mam nadzieje ze tam gdzies, Michal odnajdzie prawdziwa milosc, jakiej zawsze szukal. Jesli slyszysz bracie to wiedz ze takich ludzi jak Ty nigdy sie nie zapomina.

Argentina, Buenos Aires, Bla bla

Argentina, Buenos Aires, Bla bla

After weekend in Mar de Plata, I came back to Buenos Aires. Finally I left the hostel lifestyle and I am staying with the couchsurfers: Tobi, Ana, Aliosha and Mariano. It is totally different experience. I feel like I am traveling again. In the following days I want to see if I like tango, I have to wait for my credit cards and experience few parties with Portenos (people who live in Buenos Aires). It is hard to write anything at the hangover state.

What happened in last few weeks: tasting everyday the best beef in the world, going for wild parties, meeting random people, taking Spanish classes, discussing art with local artists, trying Bigos and Pierogi with my Venezuelan friend, meeting other Venezalans , dating Buenos Aires, watching Boca Juniors, visiting my friend in Mar de Plata, reading 7 laws of spiritual success by Deepak Chopra - very inspiring, sightseeing and getting ready for the next stage of my trip.

I feel like I traveled more inside myself in Buenos Aires then in any other city in America. Maybe because I felt a bit lonely for the first week¿ As I have heard past is the history, future is the mystery and presence in the gift in your hands.

Argentina, Buenos Aires, BA as London, BA como London

Argentina, Buenos Aires, BA as London, BA como London

Buenos Aires reminds me of London. Big city, lots of people, traffic, massive impersonal nightlife, and a bit of loneliness. If I was going to compare both cities there are more similarities than differences.

London has

+ great job opportunities (at least before economical crisis)
+ is a cultural center of the world
+ convenient access to social services like Post Office, Doctor ...
+ cheap airlines flying anywhere in Europe and in the world
+ great parks and open spaces in the city
+ cultural diversion including all languages and skin colors in the world
+ the best football teams
+ parties usually end up at 2am not at 7am
+ modern art
+ good English sense of humour

Buenos Aires has

+ better weather
+ better looking women
+ easy flight to best city in the world=) Rio de Janeiro
+ great Italian and Spanish inspired food
+ romantic language

Why am I writing about this. Because I am bored of taking photos of Buenos Aires, in somehow that city stopped inspiring me. Or its just caused by the never ending hangover.
I am stuck with the Spanish course which I bought and I have to complete. Otherwise I am ready to go. I am ready to hit the road and again feel the joy of exploring unknown. Am I already addicted?

------------------

Buenos Aires me recuerda Londres. Es una ciudad muy grande, mucha gente, trafico, vida nocturna tan grande e impersonalizada, y tampoco me siento solo.

Londres tiene

+ trabajo con muchas oportunidades (aunque antes de la crisis economica)
+ es el centro cultural del mundo
+ accesso para servicios sociales como Correo, Medico...
+ aviones baratos hacia toda Europa y del mundo
+ parques y espacios abiertos en dentro de la ciudad
+ diferencia cultural incluye todos los idiomas y colores de piel
+ mejores equipos de futbol
+ las fiestas terminan a las 2 de la noche no a las 7 de la mañana
+ arte moderno
+ me gusta el sentido de humor de Inglatera

Buenos Aires tiene

+ mejor clima
+ mujeres mas lindas
+ accesso facil y rapido para llegar a la mejor ciudad del Mundo: Rio de Janeiro
+ comida rica con influencia Italiana y Española
+ idioma romantico con buen sonido

?Por que estoy escribiendo sobre eso? Porque estoy aburrido de sacar fotos de Buenos Aires. ?No se por que pero la ciudad no me inspira mas?. O posiblemente la razon es la resaca que no se puede terminar. Tambien tengo clases de Español y tengo que pasar 12 horas mas. Pero estoy listo para salir. Estoy listo para viajar y sentir la felicidad de explorar cosas nuevas. Piensas que soy adicto?
