Thank you, yestravel.

111op: this is a trip report by yours truly:

Of course, it cannot compete with the ones you write, but....LOL!!!

We looked into RT airfares from JFK - EZE for March, super expensive, ended up using frequent flyer miles for First Class, these are the trips we save our miles for.

We're so excited to be returning for a third trip (after a two year hiatus), going to BA - El Calafate - El Chalten - Villa Angostura - BA. We are so excited, but do have to get through part of our winter first!

How many miles for that first-class tickets?! Wow, that's what you call travel in style!

Av, I skimmed the report and it's really interesting. (Sorry -- you complained about that in your report, that people don't post detailed comments.) Usually people don't comment on mine either, and that's why I was surprised when you seem to know about them! I think that there are many who read without bothering to comment (that's what I'd like to think).

Well, 111op, this forum doesn't have THAT much volume, so, when someone new pops up, sometimes I read his/her previous posts, to get a better idea of how we can help.

That's why I know you are a "phenomenal trip report writer". LOL!!!

Only 250,000....

We charge everything (but also pay off our bills every month). You'd be surprised at how fast the miles accrue.

Is that per ticket or for two tickets?

If you don't mind my asking, you must be an expat, av? You keep referring to Argentina as your country, but your English is way too perfect. (I hope that I don't sound insulting -- I'm just curious. )

I wouldn't want to "blow my own horn", 111op, but I'm native Argentine from waaaaay back, when the Spanish conquerors landed in this blessed land, I have always lived here, I have NOT studied abroad and no one else in my ascendant family speaks English.

Within those limitations, I modestly (LOL!) believe I am the Argentine with the best English you will ever meet.

I would willingly challenge for that title many Argentines who have studied and/or lived abroad, but I'm a tough competitor and dislike giving any undue advantages.

ROTFLMAO!

Rest assured you'll have a great time in MY country, 111op!

Wow. I'm truly impressed!

I guess some people just have a knack with languages. I've a friend in France who can finish the Sunday Times Magazine crosswords and I can't even finish the Monday crosswords!

I guess we all have our own talents.

Ok, first question. I'll arrive on Saturday and leave the following Saturday night. I assume that Iguazu Falls should be top priority? Is there anything else to look into?

I see a few side trips listed on Frommer's.

Thanks!

Yes, 111op, our Iguazú Falls are a must for a first-time visitor.

Tigre (our delta), Colonia (in Uruguay) and a visit to an "estancia" are suggested day trips, as Frommer's says.

Check out http://tinyurl.com/3xna57
to see if you are interested in that kind of not-too-touristy "estancia".
