The Shopping Trip

Yes, ladies I know you have been shopping before...Paris, Milan, LA...but you haven't been here you haven't heard about ...not to mention the handbags...and the clothes...This is the best unknown destination for shopping that you have never been to before.

You are going to be looked after in exclusive style-you and your girlfriends. You can plan the perfect trip. It is one week of hedonist shopping, with everything in place for the perfect voyage. And you will not forget this one!

Keep guessing, because I am not telling you where it is yet.

Ok Ladies, I know that you are dying to know what shopper’s paradise I am promising you, but I am not going to tell you yet. But take it from me; you are not going to be disappointed. It is a modern capital city, with many beautiful buildings. It has been modernized in recent years and now has a bustling port area which has been turned into a centre of nightlife. Yes, this city has a cracking nightlife, but that is not why we are recommending it. It is because it is a shopper’s paradise.

Firstly there are many antique shops, you know, those kinds of things you can't find anywhere else. Some celebrities have discovered this location, and make a point of looking for antiques whenever they are there. A famous British singer is well known in this part of town.

Then there are the shoes. Of course, there are many of the best known designer names here, but you wouldn't necessarily come for that. It is the up-and-coming names that will catch your attention. Why? Because some of these shoes will make your grillfriends (yes, that is the correct spelling-these are girlfriends who will grill you until you tell them where you bought the shoes! Only they won't be able to get hold of them quite so easily!).Different know the ones that will make your grillfriends perk up and not stop the questioning until they get some answers.

The handbags are mostly made from pure leather of the best quality. Something different, something to really get your hands on. They don't make them like this anywhere else. Made to inspire and to spread envy amongst the female population. These bags will inspire confidence and admiration.

Somebody whispered to me the location must be Rome. No, it is not Rome! And you might not want to go home (not in a hurry anyway), as Michael Bublé might have said. But, there is plenty of Italian influence, and the Italian restaurants are to die for!

Yes, the food is great, and for some foods it is the best in the world. Full stop. No doubts. Because when you are on a serious shopping trip, food is important. Ladies have to keep their energy levels up. How else can they keep going day after day, after many a wimpy man has long given up?

Even the name of the city is cool. Cool. Cool! A city you will never forget, that you will dream about.

No, you haven't guessed it Michael Bublé might have sang, but he didn't and to put you out of your misery, it is not anywhere in Canada.

I am going to give you a quick dance around the city. It is a European city but is not in Europe, they speak European languages, but alot of English is also spoken, the British have had a big influence on the city, but so have the French, the Spanish and the Italians. Latin sophistication and English charm, or English sophistication and Latin charm. Whichever way you want it, it is here.

The city is classical, but modern, old but new, big but small, bustles but is calm; this city is what you want it to be....

And so let me explain a little. You will be blown away by the classical buildings, built in the style when they really knew how to build properties to stare at, to stand in awe of, and to live in style and luxury. And yet they have modern buildings, in glass and steel that stand comparison, although in my opinion in a different way, to the wonders of the past.

They build new shopping malls here, for example, like nowhere else. They look and feel like monuments, they are celebrated buildings with lines which pay homage to the classical architecture of the past. They have frescoes that look like they were plucked from the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican. Did Michelangelo live a second life here? It certainly looks that way.

And yes! This is a city of music and dance and shopping, celebrated and renowned for shopping, but not as much as it should be. You can be romanced and listen in awe to delicious pop songs, ballads and opera. And the dance! They do not so much dance, as set the place alight! Yes, you can dance while you shop. Ladies prepare to move your bodies; you will discover parts of your body you didn't even know existed! Wow, let's go Buenos Aires.
