A bit of a history of Argentina

What do you know about Argentinian history? Let’s say, in a last two hundred years? Honestly, I didn’t know anything… And this is the best part of traveling — not just seeing the beauty. But learning the stories.

Instagram beginner

for-post_web

I never had my own instagram account. I bought my first iphone which gave me an opportunity to join this app just a year ago. I just never got a value having an expensive phone as everything I need a phone for – call, text, take photos and use google maps. The last one is comfortable, but, couple years ago we made a road trip by car with my brother and his two kids from St Petersburg to Lofoten Islands and back without smartphones and online maps. And we didn’t have any problems. And I never play games. I just find it boring.

Anyway, I decided to join instagram at the same way I decided to start a blog, so these two are new for me. But I’m trying by best to make it both fun and interesting.

Follow me here and there! And if you have some spare time — check my portfolio website.

When I asked locals if there is anything happening in Buenos Aires for the New Year’s Even they said there is not much. And then I asked if there is a main square like in all the other big cities, so everybody come and there is a music and fireworks and crowds of happy people. And they said there is nothing like that in Buenos Aires. And I was like what? I don’t believe in that, there should be something. Continue reading

Top 8 best free accommodation websites

img_7793accIt’s been 8 months since I’m away from home. And there wasn’t a single night I paid for my accommodation. In these 8 months I spent 3 months in Italy, 4.5 months in Brazil, a week in Uruguay and now in Buenos Aires where I’ve been having a free bed and breakfast until February. Usually travelers pay the same money for the bed as their daily budget for everything else, so I will tell you how to make your expenses double less. Continue reading

Life in a hostel. Day 1

Today’s afternoon I checked in to the hostel where I will spend the next 30 days of my adventure life. I never stayed in the hostel before for that long, so I’m a bit scared. As an exchange for my bed and breakfast I’m going to give them some help with social networks and graphic design stuff. I’m also planning to do some art classes as the hostel has free activities every day and I want to add my hand also into it.
