In 2010, my husband and I traveled the Argentinian country-side for over a week. We knew our one trip goal was to reach the glacier, Perito Moreno in El Parque Nacional los Glaciales and left the rest of the journey up to spontaneity and chance. We had planned to visit the national park first, but missed our flight due to what we thought was a lost passport (I'll cough that up to the plights of travel adventures). We had already checked out of our hotel in Buenos Aires, and on a whim, took a taxi to the national bus station, and hopped on a bus going to Bariloche, via Bahia Blanca.
This image was shot during a 35 km bike trip in and around the majestic lakes and mountains of Bariloche. The air was crisp, the views were like nothing I'd seen before. It felt like time stopped moving, the magnitude of the sheer beauty of this place took our breaths away. I could only capture a portion of what we could see, and only the slightest fraction of what we felt at that moment. It is a place that I hope we return to one day.
I hope to one day be able to capture the scent of Bariloche. It's difficult to capture such immense beauty and the memories that come along with it in a bottle. I'd need to find an ingredient or a blend of ingredients that could translate the crisp, glacier-like air. Perhaps mint, and citrus, and cyprus. A future project for sure!
If you're intrigued by Bariloche and interested in this picturesque bike tour, check out the link to Circuito Chico Bike Rental: http://circuitochicobikes.com/ You bike on your own and find your own paths and secret discoveries, which is part of the fun.

Summers in the city can be pretty brutal, and they always leave us dreaming about island getaways. We love the private look of this secluded beach on Alabaster Bay in Bonaire, a gorgeous little island in the Caribbean. Where is your dream getaway?

Pike Place Market Seattle[/caption]
It's a well known fact that New Yorkers are constantly on the move, and that constant business requires great amounts of caffeine! So it goes without saying that we're all pretty big coffee junkies. That said, we're super excited about this weeks Travel Shot Tuesday post about Pike Place Market
in Seattle, WA. This super cool market is the home of one of Starbucks's classic blends, and is a great spot to check out on a lazy weekend afternoon!

The beaches along the Pacific Coast Highway are generally amazing across the board, but the sunsets at the beaches in Malibu, CA, are some of the best we've seen. Be sure to check out El Matador State Park for some amazing beach shots of your own next time you're in the area!
