So I have been playing around with this blog and updating it with a few pages at the top about travels and food (two of my favourite things)... and I was looking back through all the posts we have written this year and couldn't find a single thing about Iguazu! I was such a lazy blogger in the middle of this year!
Well I am going to fix that by putting up photos and just saying how absolutely incredible Iguazu was!!
Iguazu is a small town in the province of Misiones, up the very top right corner of Argentina, shouldering Paraguay and Brazil. The big big tourist drawcard for travellers all around the world are the AMAZING waterfalls in Iguazu National Park.
We went here in May with my mum and dad for the weekend. it was THE BEST!! one of the coolest places I have ever been to!!! chris and I want to go back definitely!
It was cheaper for us to fly there and have access into the National Park because we have Argentine DNI's (Documents of National Identity)- because we live here. Mum and dad had to pay double on everything- flights, entry to the park etc... so it was great for us, but if you don't have one of these coveted DNI's, then be prepared to pay big on the flights!
But totally worth every penny!! an SPECTACULAR natural wonder of the world! breath taking!
I just thought I would put some photos up, they don't do it justice, but gives a really clear picture of what we experience. The sounds and smells and jungle board walks and grandeur of nature was fantastic!

Chris and I went back on Sunday for a couple of hours, leaving mum and dad at the hotel to relax before flying back to Buenos Aires. We did this 6km walk through the jungle to this solo waterfall that had a natural little pool at the bottom. If it had been a hot day it would have been a magic little swimming hole. But we had mate and sandwiches and had a great little picnic.
Half walked, half ran the track back because we had to fly back to BA.
Overall- DO IT!! it was the best!
And it was so special and wonderful to share it with my mum and dad!

I know this was 4 months ago, but it was so awesome that it was totally worth blogging about!! I know I have said it a lot, but we are sooooo buzzed with the opportunity to travel! I have been so wrapped up in work and trying to get this Music Department off the ground and I have forgotten what we have access too.
Come on people, stop saying you need to see South America one day, just start saving and get over here and do it!!!
By the way, Waterfall in Castellano is Cataratas-
Cataratas de Iguazu (Iguazu Waterfalls)! woohoo
All my love,
