The more time I spend in Argentina, the more I fall in love with this country and its charm.
*
This picture was taken in San Antonio de Areco, a small town in northern Buenos Aires Province. Only two hours away from the capital, it is an idyllic pampa town to experience the charm of Argentine Gaucho life ๐ŸŽ The town dates to early 1730 and to its day it preserves many Gaucho traditions, including silver work and saddlery of its artisans.
*
The weather-beaten corner building, you see on this picture, was originally a general store and is more than 200 years old. The building seems to be taken from Don Segundo Sombra (most popular Gaucho novel). Now itโ€™s a pulperรญa, a place that can be best described as a mixture of wild west saloon bar, restaurant and deli.
*
We spent a couple of hours wandering around the town, exploring local stores, discovering artisans workshops and of course, meeting incredibly kind and friendly locals, who were always happy to appear on the picture.

One of the most beautiful sunsets I've seen in a while.
~
If you are in Buenos Aires and you would want to get the best view from above, I suggest you to visit @palaciobarolotours for the best sunset spot ๐ŸŒ† Palacio Barolo is a fascinating landmark office building that was built in 20th century and until 1935 was the tallest bulling in South America ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ‘†๐ŸปIf you would like to see more, check out my stories ๐Ÿ“ฝ๏ธ for more insights from another day in Buenos Aires.

Including walk around La Recoleta Cementerio, one of the most beautiful (and probably most haunted ๐Ÿ‘ป cementaries in the world), visiting Casa Rosada (the executive mansion and office of the President of Argentina ๐Ÿ˜ฑ) and tour around Palacio Barolo with the most stunning view ๐ŸŒ† from above.

Buenos dรญas, Buenos Aires ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท Itโ€™s so good to be here!
~
To be honest, I still donโ€™t entirely realise that I am on the other side of the world now. Itโ€™s not autumn, but spring, and instead of fallen leaves I see cherry blossoms and purple jacarandas. For the last 48h, since Iโ€™ve arrived here, Iโ€™ve seen and experienced so much beauty, kindness and hospitality. Iโ€™m really grateful to be here!
~
This shot was taken at La Boca (thank you @dy_ellie for capturing this), the oldest and most colourful neighbourhood in Buenos Aires. Itโ€™s famous for art, music, tango and, of course, football. The neighbourhood was settled and built by Italian immigrants in the end 19th century and you still can feel that European flavour.

Youโ€™ll find more insights through my stories ๐ŸŽฅ Also, thank you all, who sent me suggestions about must places to visit and experience in Buenos Aires! Itโ€™s really amazing to be part of such an international community, like you, guys! ~
Thank you, @travelbuenosaires for such a warm welcoming! @visitargentina @huntgram #travelbuenosaires

Today I'm escaping sweet London's autumn ๐Ÿ and heading to warm Buenos Aires spring ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒธ (I can't believe this is actually happening ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท) I'm beyond excited to partner with @VisitArgentina and @TravelBuenosAires, to visit the country I've been dreaming to explore for so long ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ”๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŽ During next ten days I'll be sharing my first Argentina experience via photos and stories ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ“ธ Has anyone of you been to Argentina before? Or maybe there's someone who's actually from Argentina? ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท #TravelBuenosAires #VisitArgentina @huntgram

The only two things I'm missing on this picture are horses and a carriage ๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŽ York is one of these cities that take you back in time โœจ On another note, I'm finally catching up with editing videos from this year's travels ๐ŸŽฅ There's new video on my YouTube channel, and this time I'm showing you around beautiful Cote D'Azure, France (in collab with @visitcotedazur) ๐Ÿ’› As always, link in bio ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿป

Vintage bookstore delights ๐Ÿ“šYork has so many second hand and antiquarian bookshops. I could probably dedicate one whole day just to exploring these stores ๐Ÿค“ On a book inspiration note: what are you guys reading now? Or would you suggest to read? ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ“š

I've wanted to visit Saltburn-by-the-Sea for a very long time now โš“๏ธ๐Ÿš A delightful coastal town is situated in North Yorkshire. It has retained much of charm that made it favourite of holidaymakers in Victorian England ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Many of Victorian features have been preserved, including pier and water balanced cliffside tram ๐Ÿš  It was opened in 1884 and it's the oldest remaining water balanced cliff lift in Britain ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ‘†๐ŸปThis part of Yorkshire is also believed to be a popular surfing destination in England ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒŠ (must admit - not as great as Cornwall, though ๐Ÿ˜ฌ)!

If you are traveling to Yorkshire, you should add Staithes to your list. The village has the air of a place lost in time. The cobbles, alleys and cottages are pretty much as they were in the 18th century.
The young James (later Captain) Cook had his first job here, as an apprentice grocer, oddly, not a seaman โš“๏ธ๐Ÿค“ The place is also famous for its geological history. There are many fossils found under the cliffs and being part of the Jurassic coastline it has been given heritage coast status ๐Ÿš It's one of the prettiest seaside villages I've visited in England. I didn't have much time to explore it, but I hope I'll be able to return there soon! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป What's your favourite village to visit in England ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง?

Probably the most enchanting alleyway in England โœจ The Shambles was previously known as 'The Great Flesh Shambles' and was formerly home to many local butchers. The walkway also believed to have been the inspiration for Diagon Alley in J.K. Rowling's Harry Porter series ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿค“

York welcomed us with rain โ˜”๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฆ But it didn't stop us from spending all day exploring the city ๐Ÿ There's so much charm in the labyrinth of these quaint cobbled streets ๐Ÿฐ
