I clearly knew where I was going while at the Rich Eisen show! —-♂️ Just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone there for being such wonderful hosts once again. I’m looking very forward to coming back! PS Rich, It was lovely to meet your fantastic mum too! @RichEisen @RichEisenShow #TheWitcher
Woke up this morning with some thoughts. As you know, I love me some country and Chris Janson says it best in this song. LA left me with some Good Vibes! Thank you to Mr Janson for putting it so perfectly and thank you to all of you for making this trip an unforgettable experience! So, Goodbye LA and Hello Buenos Aires!! Oh and for anyone wondering where those fancy trousers and that snazzy plum jacket come from? They were both put together by the master artisans at Huntsman of Savile Row. Best I’ve ever worn! @TheChrisJanson #TheWitcher @HuntsmanSavileRow #LA #BuenosAires #Argentina
About last night…… ‘Twas my first night ever in Argentina so thought I might check out some of what makes you guys so special, and I found at least part of it! Argentine Tango is b.e.autiful! And the dancers, musicians and singers at Café de Los Angelitos had me enthralled. Couldn’t help but wonder that if Geralt never ended up being a monster hunter, would he have been an Argentine Tango dancer??? #Argentina #BuenosAires #CafeDeLosAngelitos #TheWitcher #TangoGeralt
If you don’t like the meats….look away now. I went out for a little more culture last night and found the best steak I’ve ever had!! Genuinely…. I don’t need to post this, I just feel like I should. The steak in Argentina is absolutely incredible…… I had a 600 gram filet mignon and didn’t slow down once throughout. That coupled with some mega good malbec, made it a dinner I will not forget! Then I got to meet the people responsible for the legendary hunk of meat in the kitchen of El Mirasol (that’s the restaurant). This fella here clearly thinks I’m great. Couldn’t cross my wrists for Heliotrope but maybe some Quen would give me the edge! #BuenosAires #Argentina #ElMirasol #Steak #TheWitcher
As I’m sure you may know by now, I am in Sao Paulo, buuuuuut I just wanted to give a big shout out and a thank you to the fans in Buenos Aires! It was so wonderful to meet, see and hear you all! A thank you to Shawn Mendes as well, pretty sure I borrowed some of your fans outside the hotel! Argentina, I will be back! Most definitely, I will be back. #TheWitcher #BuenosAires #Argentina
