Starting with a magical walk around the falls at Iguazu will always be pretty difficult to top.
Walking around Puerto Iguazu and discovering the market and the restaurants lining the street.
Watching the semi final of the Rugby World Cup, Australia vs Argentina. On Election Day in a cafe in Puerto Iguazu. There was meant to be an alcohol ban in the country but the owner decided we could all enjoy a beer and the game. 
Going out to San Isidro to meet Sarah’s extended family. A really great evening.
Watching the Tango show in a small little bar on the Playa de Mayo.
Walking around and around Buenos Aires admiring all the European inspired architecture.
The flight down to El Calafate where we had superb visibility and the pilot was pointing out all the sights.
Seeing the front face of the Moreno glacier, absolutely awe inspiring, especially listening to all the cracking and watching the huge chunks falling off.
Watching the flamingoes just outside El Calafate from the bird watching hut.
Dinner with Saurabh and Arturro in El Calafate, eating Patagonia specialties of lamb and trout.

All the bus trips we have done,some easier than others but we have certainly put in some hours on the buses!
