Aug 9, 2008 - Argentina - The waterfalls at Iguazú National Park

We were up early today and headed to the bus terminal at about 8am. There we got a bus to the Iguazu National Park. At the park we followed the crowd to the train station and got the small train to the next station. There everyone started queuing for the next train, not having a map we decided to do the same. Then we thought we need to escape the madness of the massive queue we were in so got out of there and then found a big map on a wall. We headed down a little path that lead to the waterfalls, it seemed everyone else was off to see...

May 27, 2008 - Iguazu

Ja saa var vi ogsaa i Iguazu! Et kaempe smukt vandfald. Eller der var jo faktisk 200 af dem, saa man kan vidst ikke bare sige "et". Vi koerte i bus 24 timer fra Salta til Iguazu, og ankom kl.14.30. Saa skyndte vi os paa hostel, saette bagagen, og saa skulle vi ha noget MAD! Vi var godt sultne.. Vi havde ikke haft noget mad med paa busturen, og da vi koerte med semi cama frem for cama (2.klasse bussaede - indtil da havde vi kun proevet at koere med cama) kom de kun med en lille fesen toastsandwich, og hvis den nu var for svaer at tygge,...

Apr 14, 2008 - The Iguazu Falls

Hello again, Yesterday I arrived in Puerto Iguazu which you may already know if you´ve had nothing better to do than read my last log. It poured with rain here yesterday and the Lonely Planet I left on the windowsill to dry is now totally soaked from rain that came through the window. Perhaps I should throw it in the falls tomorrow as it has such an affinity for water. Today we; Niv the Israeli and I, joined another group of three Israeli`s in Puerto Iguazu for a day trip to the Brazilian side of the falls and a visit to Paraguay. I...

Mar 15, 2008 - Puerto Iguazu

Puerto ihuazu is the town that everyone goes and visits when they go to the cataratas. we stayed at the Hostel Inn which was fantastic. it was an old casino/whore house and not its a hostel.......so basically the party continues. haha. it looks like a hostel not like a casino. we stayed there for about 5 days while we saw the falls. its kind of a meca for backpackers because everyone from all over the world comes to this town to see the falls. funnly enough it only has one major hostel which holds about 300 ppl. this hostel rocks. big pool....

Mar 15, 2008 - Iguazu Falls

The first thing that i have to say is that how these falls are not on the list of natural wonders of the world i will never know. Probably coz the americans have that other big waterfall. shannon and i originally tried to go to the brazillian falls which turned into a right pain in the ass. we aparantly didnt have some bit of immigration paper that this idiot at the border wanted and if we didnt reproduce it by the time we left brazil we would have to pay a ´Fee´...whatever. the lonley planet says your side of the falls isnt that good...

Mar 3, 2008 - Iguazú - Itaipú und Minas de Wanda

Neben den Wasserfällen, für welche Iguazú hauptsächlich bekannt ist, gibt es in der näheren Umgebung noch viele weitere besuchenswerte Attraktionen. So haben wir zum Beispiel das Wasserkraftwerk Itaipú, welches sich zwischen Paraguay und Brasilien befindet und den Fluss Paraná staut, angeschaut. Mit 14 Gigawatt installierter Leistung (zum Vergleich: KKW Gösgen ca. 1 Gigawatt) gehört die Anlage trotz des etwas höheren Alters zu den weltgrössten. Ein sehr eindrückliches Kraftwerk, vor allem natürlich für Bauingenieure :-). Mehr Infos gibt's...

Mar 3, 2008 - Buenos Aires to Iguazu falls

Week 2 completed, only 50 to go! We experienced our first long-distance bus journey from Buenos Aires to Iguazu Falls. The bus station was a little hectic but once on the bus we were surrounded by an air-conditioned luxury environment with fully flat reclinable beds, waiter service, hot meals and Champagne, and Seb's favourite - TV. 16 hours later and the following morning, we arrived in Iguazu and spent our first day chilling by the pool before heading off to Brazil for a few hours. The falls on the Brazilian side are amazing with elevated...

Mar 2, 2008 - Iguazu falls

As we flew from Mendoza to Iguazu, we met Michelle at the airport during the layover in Buenos Aires. The Gutmann girls were so excited to be reunited that they didn't stop giggling the whole time till we got to Iguazu. Iguazu falls is surely one of the most amazing sights this world has to offer. Because it's so beautiful, Cheryl made sure we stayed at the Sheraton in the National Park which is the only hotel allowed to be located on the park premises. Cheryl also made sure we all had a room with a view of the falls in the distance. By far...

Feb 27, 2008 - Cataratas de Iguazú

Die Busverbindungen in Argentinien sind wirklich prima. Einsteigen, 25 Stunden fahren (mit eingerechnet die Wartezeit für einen Ersatzbus, nachdem der erste Bus in der Nacht eine Kuh überfahren hat und so kaputt war, dass er nicht mehr weiterfahren konnte) und schon ist man x-hundert Kilometer weiter, in unserem Fall in Puerto Iguazú, einem Städtchen an der argentinisch-brasilianischen Grenze. Von dort aus kann man die Wasserfälle anschauen, welche die Grenze zwischen den beiden Ländern bilden. "Wasserfälle" tönt etwas nach understatement;...

Feb 17, 2008 - Iguazu Falls

So... hop on a flight and on to Iguazu Falls on the Argentinean side. We’re only here overnight so we have a jampacked 2 half days to get it all in. Again, OMG! This place is glorious. Anyone coming to either Brazil or Argentina MUST do this. We drove across to the Brazilian side and took a helicopter tour over the falls. WOW! Rob got to sit next to the pilot and got some amazing shots. We then went into the National Park and hiked into the falls. CRAZY! You can walk right infront of the falls and you get soaked by the mist! It truly is...

Dec 29, 2007 - Puerto Iguazu!

Well, hello again! I hope this entry finds you all well rested after the crazy holidays and just in time to wish you all a happy new year! We`ve had a hard time getting a good internet connection because it has stormed here every afternoon knocking the power out. Well, where do I start. Argentina is an interesting place and very different depending on where you are. Much like the States, people, places, and ofcourse prices are different depending on the region or in some cases your nationality. Meaning, we get charged more for things...

Nov 14, 2007 - Iguazu Falls, Argentina

We arrived in Buenos Aires mid-afternoon with the thought that we could find a hotel near the airport, spend the night, and fly out to the Iguazu Falls the next morning. In all our time on the road, we have never needed to worry about finding a place to stay. There is always a room available somewhere. Well, not in Buenos Aires. We hired a taxi to take us to the city center and stop at a couple hotels to find a room. After two dumps, one of which had a room but looked really scary, and after realizing that we were in a different area then...
