Argentina -ARKAKAO Gelato in Buenos Aires


Elegant European Cafe setting and delicious ice cream! ARKAKAO GELATO in Buenos Aires. A must for a taste of authentic "home-made" Italian ice cream in Recoleta. ARKAKAO, a brand originally from Italy, has recently opened it's new locale a couple of blocks away from Ave 9 de Julio (the wide avenue with the obelisk).

Arkakao comes to Buenos Aires with the promise of serving delicious ice creams that are prepared daily with out chemicals, artificial colors, or additives. They also offer to deliver these yummy treats to your home or hotel room. So next time you're in Buenos Aires, make a b-line for this beautifully refurbished Parisian Style mansion where they serve delicious Italian Gelato ice-cream in style.

Some notable flavors served by ARKAKAO are Dark Chocolate with orange; Dark Chocolate with cinnamon; Vanilla from Tahiti; Caramel Flan and Dulce de Leche. Mmm, mmm, delicioso!

Arkakao's location in Recoleta also offers an interior garden room setting and a couple of tables on the sidewalk for those who prefer to enjoy their ice creams outdoors.

Geneva - Three day Train Pass - The Swiss Flexi-Pass


This just came in from Laura, an adventure seeking crew member who just returned from Geneva, Switzerland a few days ago. She sends us valuable information on the Swiss Flexi-Pass, a three day train pass that covers unlimited travel trough Switzerland on trains, buses and boat lines. All this, for a flat fee of 216 Swiss Francs per person. It sounds pricey, but it's not if you compare the price of individual train tickets to any destination in Switzerland by train. With The Swiss Flexi-Pass, if planned carefully, you can travel extensively throughout Switzerland for a more economical price.

The Flexi-Pass can by purchased at the Office of the Train Station. Bring your Passport to show that you are a non-resident, since these passes are only available for non-residents. Laura and her friends took a train to Luzern, a boat ride from Luzern through the Interlaken, had lunch (not included) along the way and then took the train back to Geneva through part of the Golden Pass route (which is the scenic route through Switzerland). She still has a day left in her pass to use when she returns to Geneva before the end of the month.

Thanks Laura! Now I can't wait for my next trip to Geneva!
