Noviembre Ruta 40
Posted August 18th, 2011 - 11:02 am by from Alicante, Spain (Permalink)
Hola amigos;

Me llamo Julián, tengo 27 años. Nací en Argentina pero de chico emigré a España. He viajado muchísimo por este mundito, pero me queda la cuota pendiente de conocer de fondo el país donde nací. Por eso y tras dos años de proyecto, reuniendo fondos, el 31 de oct me subo a un avión rumbo Baires para dirigirme hacia el sur y partir de Ushuaia a La Quiaca.

Mi objetivo va mucho más allá de unir dos puntos, será un viaje improvisado, no dispongo de vehículo y mi presupuesto es humilde como para hacer un gasto semejante. Me gustaría llegar a la latitud 0º.00 de Ecuador, con lo cual todo apoyo, toda gente que se quiera sumar a este proyecto será bienvenido.

MI mail es guasonj@hotmail.com y mi facebook Julián Reguera.

Mucha magia y mucha luz para todos.!!

Saludos

Route 40 Argentina,...... LINK

One of the things I love the most about my job is the fact that I’m always on the move, always hunting for awesome treasures in and around this beautiful country that is Argentina.

This time I’m in Mendoza, a breathtaking city at the bottom of the Andes Mountains; home of the KM 0 of the marvelous Route 40, my favorite place in the whole wide world.

Such was my good luck this time that I managed to find a cozy small hotel on the roadside of Route 40!

The city of Mendoza was founded early in the Colonial times, in 1561. The Incas had reached the region we know today as Cuyo, and more precisely Mendoza in their late expansion years, just before they were conquered by the Spaniards. Therefore, this region was a greatly civilized area, known for its stupendous ecosystem and its great Pre Columbian constructions as well as its refined culture.

Today, more than 400 years after its foundation, Mendoza is a regional metropolis and a melting pot between the Argentine and the Chilean cultures, for it’s in the borderline between this neighboring countries.

Mendoza withholds Argentina’s finest wine production and it’s a precious tourism spot for travelers from around the globe. The brilliant combination of natural resources, winter sports, all year long natural spa facilities and the imponent Aconcagua Mountain –the highest most peak of the American Continent- makes of Mendoza a dream destination for every single one of us who loves to enjoy life’s pleasures and treats.

The city of Mendoza is also the capital of the equally named province. This is a modern and clean, nature friendly capital, features a broad and rich cultural and artistic life.

A stone throw away from downtown Mendoza the visitor finds the ever-growing and improving fine vineyards, wineries and boutique wine producers. Most of these are open all year long for visitation and wine trying. Even better is to enjoy this wonderful option during the month of March, when it’s still summer warm in the region, in the fabulous Wineries Classic and Sports car Rally.
