We are finishing our Round the World today. Last stop, Rio de Janeiro. Right where we started, five months ago. As I write this last post before we head back to London, I am reminded of these buddhist words of wisdom, which I quoted when we were in Burma early...

Where Nature is stronger than Man

Where Nature is stronger than Man

As in Up (a favorite DVD night during our round the world), we followed Mr Fredricksen's dream of seeing the largest waterfalls in South America and headed to Iguazu falls. Impressive..really. Nature is stronger than Man (i hope) As the falls lie exactly at the border...

One foot in Argentina, One foot in Brazil overlooking Paraguay

On the way to visit the world-famous Iguazu falls, we landed on the Argentine side, and drove over to the Brazilian side, crossing over the majestic Iguazu river which continues to Paraguay just 20km away. It was interesting to find ourselves at a cross-border on the...

After thoughts from visiting the Recoleta cemetery

After thoughts from visiting the Recoleta cemetery

I was debating for a little while whether to keep these words below for myself, but in the end, I find them so touching and expressive of what a 5-year old might think of after-life that I decided to share them with you. We visited the famous and worthwhile seeing...

The Best of Buenos Aires with Los Niños

The Best of Buenos Aires with Los Niños

We came back to Buenos Aires after Mendoza, and all together have spent more than a week in the city. While I would not call BA a very family-friendly city, because it's noisy and polluted, huge with lots of traffic, there are pleasant activities and itineraries to...

I learnt in Mendoza that some winemakers are called garagista, when they make wines out of a passion with rather basic equipment. Carmelo Patti, whom we met and visited, is Mendoza's most famous garagista. And then there are the real garage, like this one below, that...

Wine tasting in Mendoza, Argentina. Children not permitted.

We toured the wine region of Mendoza for 3 days, leaving the kids behind in Buenos Aires under the loving care of nonna. ¡Salud! Mendoza is the 4th largest city in Argentina, and its wines are exported all over the world, especially the Malbec, which I am a big fan...

Arriving in Jorge Luis Borges’ Buenos Aires

Arriving in Jorge Luis Borges’ Buenos Aires

We've been in Buenos Aires for a few days now, living like porteños. Everywhere, I am reminded of this poem Las Calles / The Streets from one of Argentina's most famous poet, Jorge Luis Borges. He used to live around the corner from where we are renting an apartment,...

From Chilean Patagonia to Argentine Patagonia

From Chilean Patagonia to Argentine Patagonia

It was fun for the children, the idea of crossing a border by road after so many airport immigration points during our round the world. However, it was a bit abstract for all us to understand where Chile ends and where Argentina starts! This is what the Argentine...

How I traveled to Syria for my birthday, and loved it

How I traveled to Syria for my birthday, and loved it

Yes I traveled to Syria last week. Not the broken and abused Syria that we all know from the news but the Syria full of colours, smiles and flavours that once stood proud. That’s right, that's where we all went on Thursday night with a bunch of super girlfriends and...

I wonder what Hemingway would say about Cuba today

I wonder what Hemingway would say about Cuba today

Everyone's talking about Cuba these days, and I am thrown 20 years back to when I first visited this special island, and left it with mixed feelings about its future. I was 20 years old back then. During a summer internship in Caracas (that's a whole other blog...

The wife vs. the mother, Bhutan |1|

We're back from a trip in Bhutan, which I really want to document properly on BozAround. It will be mainly through photos as I took sooo many, and they will tell much more about this beautiful country than my own words. Bhutan is roughly the size of Switzerland,...
