South America has been on my travel to-do list for years, but there was something in particular that drew me to select Buenos Aires for my first jaunt to the Southern Hemisphere. Maybe it was the nickname the city is often given, “The Paris of South America,” that enticed me. Or maybe it was the promise of the indulgences that Buenos Aires is best known for: late nights filled with tango dancing, delicious steak, and Malbec wine. Regardless, intuition told me Buenos Aires and I would be the perfect match. I decided to test that hunch and planned a trip as Seattle was transitioning from fall to winter in order to take advantage of South America’s warm temperatures and sunshine.
