Medical tourism for vagabonds

Hospitals might be the last place a traveller feels like visiting while exploring a new place, unless the purpose of their trip is to get that [insert organ/procedure] for a fraction of what it would cost you at home.

Photo dump: Cordoban clout

Cordoba – Argentina’s second largest city – showed us no signs of a second rate attitude. Smack bang in the geographical centre of the country, the locals seem to wear their cultural heart on their sleeve. Not an attractive stop at first sight, the city’s beauty lies in the core surrounding the leafy plazas. Blessed […]
