Hope you had a great time in Buenos Aires. I'm Argentinean, sort of a "wild rover" like yourself, I live in France now but I've recently been to Ireland. I just loved it. I visited Galway, Killarney, Cork, a couple of small towns like Tarbert and Listowel among other places and... Dublin! Great city, great places and fantastic people. This trip was like a "dream coming true", I always wanted to visit Ireland, well, being of Irish origin myself (half Irish and half... french and gallician... you know "celtic Spain"), it (kind of) makes sense... but now I'm seriously thinking of leaving the "frogs" (lol) and going to Ireland, at least for a few months... I've a lot of questions and I would like to keep in contact with you, if you agree, maybe we can exchange our experiences...
Here's my email :
Hope to hear from you, and have a great day...
Slainte from Paris!

Hola Quickroute,

Californian with similar hobo habits. I haven't had time to live abroad but have tried to travel as much and as far as I can for weeks or months at a time. I'm off to BA in January (hopefully for a year but at least until August). Wouldn't mind making a new friend when I land in BATown.

@ Ted: Sounds good - It's always good to travel - Stretches the pocket but broadens the mind!

Hey there, just stumbled onto your blog and I like it! It helps that I'm a bit of a wanderer myself and I'm about to head down to BA in a couple of months. I'll be doing some serious reading around here before I do though because you seem to know what you're on about. :-)

Take care,

Just found your blog (via nomadicmatt). Like you I'm a green-card-lottery winner. Like you I started wandering early, but an unplanned little one in 1996 stopped that fairly sharpish. Am now in Seattle but planning a RTW with husband and two kids. Check me out at

Bizarre - I'm a Paddy who just moved back to Dublin having been away for 14 years, the last 5 of which were in Madrid, and my other half is also Argento. Been there lots of times and we're considering taking over the family business in the north of Argentina (none of your cushy bankin' lark for me!).
Discovered your blog through - they like that mirror-thing of being in Ireland and seeing how an Irishman is doing in their country!
I think you've got Paddy in Madrid to thank for posting your link on there.
