A Client's Adventure through Chile and Argentina's Patagonia

We consider ourselves lucky at Craft Travel to have well-traveled, adventurous clients who come back year after year challenging us to up the ante. One client who always keeps it entertaining for us is Paul, a globetrotting architect from New York who has a passion for all things off the beaten path. On his most recent trip with us, he and his wife Sandi explored the best of Argentina and Chile, heading from Mendoza to Buenos Aires, and then south to Patagonia, crossing from El Calafate on the Argentinean side into Chilean Torres del Paine. He enjoyed the journey so much that a local New York newspaper featured his incredible account of the trip.

October has always been one of our favorite months to explore Brazil. October in Brazil means the early days of summer which means longer days and pre-Carnival celebrations. It's also prime jaguar season in the Pantanal and the driest (translate: beach weather!) in the state of Rio de Janeiro. Of course summertime (November - March) is Brazil's peak season, but October has a special place in our hearts. 

This year, October has proven to be particularly epic for Brazil. In the past couple of weeks, we've seen no less than three pieces of news that are absolute game changers for travelers to Brazil. If you're thinking of traveling to Brazil in the months ahead, you can't miss the tips in this post!

Travel: The #1 Gift Idea

It's not just come December that we all must think of gift giving. The birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduations, bar & bat mitzvahs of our loved ones requires us in most cases to ask ourselves: "What kind of present should I be giving?" Perhaps we are biased but it seems to us that there is no occasion for which a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience would be inappropriate.
