This trip to Jujuy and Tilcara was my first solo travel trip. There were friends made, buses ridden “black” (past the destination on my ticket), hills climbed and cacti gawked at, as they towered over my head. I came home with sandal, necklace, sunglasses and earring tan lines. The bus ride from Tilcara to Buenos Aires took a full 24 hours.
The national park full of cacti remains one of my all-time favorite places I’ve ever been. I’d kill to go back with a DSLR.
Where did you take your first solo trip? Have you ever seen this area of Argentina?
