Heya! As I hope you are aware by now, from my countless mentions in my January posts, I am currently in Sydney, Australia with one of my best friends from my Auckland school days. (Well actually at the moment I am getting ready to come home late tonight!). So while I am away I have lined up a few guest bloggers to share so awesome new things with you, with the occasional check in from me on my Social Media (see right sidebar). Today’s post is brought to you by Selene who blogs over at Everyday Selene about lifestyle, home design and Travel. Enjoy learning about Buenos Aires, her hometown! Sarah-Elizabeth xoxo
Update 25/03/2016: Unfortunately Selene is no longer writing her blog Everyday Selene.
Do you like traveling? So do I. Well, I wish I could. You know, getting to know new places, new faces, new food…everything about discovering is just wonderful. Is Argentina in your top places to travel to? I read a lot of bloggers who are lucky enough to travel to many countries, but I’ve only seen one blogger who came to Argentina. It surprised me, in fact, as Argentina has beautiful places to visit. And (almost) especially in Buenos Aires. Today I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite places to visit as an Argentine born girl that I would definitely recommend to anyone who would like to know new places!.
Important buildings – such as the Teatro Colón (a must!), the Pink House, and others – are located around that area. One of the most important avenues is placed there, and just a few blocks away from there, there is also another important place of Buenos Aires (that I will mention later).
The blind theater
This is a place where I haven’t been yet, but everyone that did told me it was an excellent experience. “The Blind Theater turns the body into the stage of a sensorial theater. The piece plays with the body as the central stage of a different theatrical experience. Upon entering the theatre, the visitor is met by a personal guide. This guide follows the user through the whole play, a half hour long dive into a different sensorial reality. For the first time, the blind gain full access to the theater and –on the other side- the sighted gets the sensation of the blinded.” (Source)
The japanese garden
It is probably one of the most beautiful places to stop by, even more if you’re a plant, garden lover. It has a relaxing view, and eveyrthing there has it’s japanese touch. There are also excibitions, like martial arts, origami, etc.

Temaikén is a must. Is almost outside the city. It is a zoo, but not exactly a zoo. Yes, it makes sense. Each animal has it’s own space, and it is all acclimated as their habitat would be. They eat as they would if they were ‘wild & free’, they have veterinary care 24/7 in the same place, so the animals don’t need any kind of transfer. It is a beautiful place to visit, and again, a must!
A place where I go to every month, at least twice. Even though it is still the city, it has more open air, you have plenty of restaurant choices, and it is a very calm place to be at. You also have a river and get to see some ships and boats you can even rent. Lots of tourists go there and take pictures – trust me, I had to take pictures for over 15 tourist so far!.
These are the 5 place of a few. Want more? Abasto Shopping, Barrio Chino, La Boca, El Ateneo…sooo many!
Hope you guys enjoyed the read, and if you have any question, feel free to leave a comment below with it!
