For the past month Audrey and I have been working on a secret project here in Buenos Aires from our short-term rental apartment. Although we've now made several city guides from various locations around the world, we wanted to create our biggest one yet in Buenos Aires. Because we love the city so much we wanted to show you the best of its attractions, museums, food and neighborhoods. The following is a 50 things to do in Buenos Aires travel video:

This past summer I was fortunate enough to spend an entire week traveling around the Lombardy region of Italy. Half of my time was focused in Milan with the other portion dedicated to visiting scenic rural places such as Chiavenna and Bergamo.

In Milan, I was surprised by the diversity of activities on offer – aside from just shopping – including sampling cuisine unique to the city, wandering around streets covered with tasteful street art, and experiencing fine dining and drinking in the evening.

Even more fascinating to me was how easy it was to escape the city and be fully immersed in the countryside. An hour or two by train allowed us to be straddling the border with Switzerland in the Italian Alps or marveling at the magnificent Lake Como.

The following is a travel and food guide of 10 unique things you can experience while visiting Lombardia.

While visiting the quaint town of Bergamo located in Lombardy, Italy little did we realize a unique Italian sweet originated from there. It was only after hearing about it from a local at lunch that we realized we had to go on mission to try and find one for dessert.

Well, it certainly didn’t take us long as Polenta e osei very distinctly stands out in many windows of Italian shops. The dome shaped polenta cake is cornmeal yellow and typically features marzipan sculptures on top. In this video we made the mistake of thinking polenta was actually added to the exterior of the cake; however, truth be told (and probably this is a good thing given that polenta is more of a savory ingredient) these sweet treats are actually only made to resemble a savory Polenta dish that typically features bird inside.

Everything about this snack is saturated in sugar. Normally we both have enough of a sweet tooth to finish a dessert on our own; however, we needed to help each other out to polish this one off. If you’re in Bergamo be sure to try Polenta e osei.

Having spent significant time in both Dublin and Belfast it was time for a road trip to visit Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland. Although the weather was nice when we left Belfast it didn’t take long for it to change into the more typical overcast day with intermittent rain. Along the way we stopped for lunch in Ballycastle where we devoured some fish and chips, warm soup and a pint of Guinness. After warming up by the fire we finally arrived at Giant’s Causeway (Irish: Clochán an Aifir or Clochán na bhFomhórach) and spent the better part of the day exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site before heading back to Belfast.

It’s not everyday that you get to dress up like Kings and Queens while touring a castle. While visiting Cavernago, Bergamo we had a chance to do just that along with learning how to make traditional Italian cuisine. Our first order of business was preparing lunch, so we headed into the kitchen for our Italian cooking class.

Our lesson consisted of making a full course meal including pumpkin ravioli, steak tartare and tiramisu for dessert. Everything was made from scratch, including the pasta, which gave us a new-found appreciation for the amount of preparation that goes into making high quality Italian cuisine.

After devouring our Italian creations we toured Castello di Malpaga (Malpaga Castle) all decked out in fancy attire. It was the perfect way to end what was an incredibly fun day.

Bergamo is a little magical, especially at Christmas time.

Having spent over a week in Dublin, Ireland it was time for me to escape the hustle and bustle of the city to visit more of rural Ireland. With this in mind, I headed over to Killarney by myself by train. While visiting the city I was impressed by the passion locals have for Gaelic football (green and gold was everywhere) and I spent the majority of my time exploring Killarney National Park en route to Ross Castle. Although I didn’t have a lot of time to spend here I did have a very favorable first impression and would gladly return again in the future if given the opportunity:

Over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to visit my share of festivals. However, I’ve yet to attend one that is purely focused on one particular food item. That all changed while visiting the town of Chiavenna, Italy. We happened to be in town during Dì de la Bresaola. This Italian meat festival centered around Bresaola – a meat we found kind of similar to prosciutto. Typically served as an antipasto, this air-dried salted beef is usually aged two to three months before becoming dark red and hard enough to serve.

Wandering around the streets before lunch we hit all 14 stands along the circuit grabbing a small sample from every single table.. It felt as though we were having our appetizer a little bit early 😉

The festival itself had a lot more going on than just meat tastings. Marching bands and vendors selling all kinds of trinkets vied for the moving crowds attention. Overall, we had a great time and it was wonderful that the weather improved significantly as the day went on. If you’re in Chiavenna in the fall try to time your visit around this festival. It’s the kind of unique quirky experience you’ll surely never forget.

This looks awesome! It's a bizarre and bamboozling concept to me for there to be a festival entirely centred around one food ingredient (other than the infamous Oktoberfest, of course), but this sounds really intriguing and amazing! Bresaola looks really delicious, because I adore prosciutto. Great post! I wish I can visit an exciting festival like this too one day! Haha, one can dream.

Come join us for a full Northern Irish (Ulster Fry) breakfast in Belfast, Ireland. Our breakfast consisted of soda bread, potato bread, rashers (bacon), sausage, beans and fried egg. What’s cool about most restaurants that sell it is the fact that you can order it just about any time of day. For this particular taste test we ended up having it for our lunch 😉

Lately Audrey and I have seen a shift in our travel preference from larger urban centers to more remote quiet towns. Coming from Milan to Chiavenna allowed us to slow down the pace of our travels and really get to experience what this quaint town situated in the Italian Alps has to offer. During the two days we spent here we had an opportunity to visit an Italian castle, a grotto restaurant, an artisan’s workshop and attend the Bresaola festival just to name a few. One of the highlights was waking up early enough to drive across to Switzerland to eat some Swiss chocolate and snap a few photos of the ice capped mountains in the distance. Out of all the places I had a chance to visit in Italy I liked Chiavenna the most and would gladly return again someday in the future.

When we first arrived in Belfast we asked some locals what kinds of Irish dishes would be worth trying. One of the most highly recommended was Boxty, consisting of grated and mashed potato fried in a pan, that was readily available in local pubs. Come join us as we sample this dish for the first time:
