My name is Danielle and for the most part I live in my own fantasy world. When I'm not doing that I spend my time travelling, teaching and writing about all the weird and wonderful experiences I have while out on the road. Come and read about my appendicitis in China, the time I met the leader of the communist party in Zhejiang province, the night I partied with a Tibetan Rastafarian and discover exactly what scorpion tastes like. Currently I am living in South America in Buenos Aires and will hopefully have many adventures yet to come

    Shame Clonmel..I was always intrigues about Argentins ! planned a visit I know live in Costa rica ex pat Brit/USA ..21 years and truth is they ALL think we have dollar trees in our backyard ..Sorry to hear Argentina is the same ..maybe the Latina mentality ?? However cheaper to live here and a lot nicer weather ..WHERE would you live if given a choice ? I know there is no Utopia ..and I have traveled to MANY countries ..this I found best so far..but ready for retire and a change of scenery

    I like your post on Argentina.I\'ve been living here for nearly six years and to be honest I can\'t stand the place,I\'m only here because my kids like their school.I have a little bakery and shop in padua and I am constantly being robbed by outsiders and staff.People think because i\'m Irish i\'m made of money and are always looking for ways to take it.The biggest problem this country has is it\'s goverment and all in it including the presidentthey have no interest in the people just lining there pockets.So how do you like it here.
