Welcome to the travel blog of Luke Kelly. I flew to Brazil in January 2011 with a one way ticket. Follow me as I journey around South America, getting by on the proverbial shoe string. I love football, design, music & food amongst other things and I'll be working as I travel - so those will probably be regular themes here.

Hostel Inn Tango City – Buenos Aires

La Cabrera, Buenos Aires... the best steak of my life!

The craziness of Club 69 – Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is a city I’d been excited about coming to from the moment I’d decided on visiting South America.
