Meet Sol Salute
I’m Erin and I write & manage Sol Salute. I was born and raised in a beautiful, small town in Texas. After staying close to home for university (Gig ‘Em Aggies!), I took off and never looked back. I’ve lived abroad for my entire adult life: studying in Spain and spending nearly a year in the US Virgin Islands before settling in Buenos Aires, where I have spent the past 9 years building my life.

Why I Travel & Where I’ve Been
I have always been tempted by the unknown. I love the feeling of boarding a plane to a new country, not knowing anyone where I’m going or what to expect. I spent a semester in Granada, Spain. Then I returned for a post-graduate degree in hospitality in Marbella & Barcelona.
Next, I spent nearly a year working in the Virgin Islands before moving one last time to Buenos Aires, Argentina. I’ve been here for 12 years and have properly settled down and put down roots, exchanging my Spanish accent for a Porteño one.
I miss my family and friends back in Texas, but the friends I’ve made along the way are the family I chose. I’ve learned a new language and greatly expanded my appetite. I kept telling myself, one more year abroad and then I’ll start my “real life.”
After 14 years abroad, it turns out this is my real life. I love living abroad, I love the challenge. Traveling the world has shown me that the world is intrinsically a good place filled with kind people, fascinating cultures, and damn good street food.
In this blog, I want to help you explore my new home of Argentina, where my heart is in Texas, and everywhere in between.
