BE PART OF SOMETHING BIG: ARGENTINA 2019
Sophistication at best in the beautiful Buenos Aires. Sip on a Malbec wines. Learn to dance tango. Go to a fabulous show. Private art tour of the capital. Personalized tour of music, books and theatre district. Unbelievable Tigre excursion (river delta). All with a personal guide, international renowned artist Gene Prokop.
Oh, and be in my next Travel by Dart: Argentina online episode. We’re going to be filming in Buenos Aires, so get your good side on.
Plus: meet and be inspired by 10 other travellers, uniquely selected for this adventure, to make friends for a lifetime and be part of an exclusive group – The Spark Society – that’s forming a tradition of going on further adventures together.
I’ve been asked by a lot of people if they can join me on any of my trips while filming Travel by Dart, the web series I’m doing where I throw a dart at the world map and go wherever it lands.
After setting up exclusives trips for The Spark Experience in Cartagena (HERE), Tuscany/Venice (HERE) or Curacao (HERE) – I am opening an invitation for 10 people to come with me to Argentina. 10 amazing, interesting, select people. Exclusive group. 8 days, 7 nights. Countless fun activities. 1 Life-changing experience. Spark all your senses.
1. All Accommodation + Breakfast Daily
Your seven nights in Buenos Aires you will be covered. Not only that – we will be staying at this amazing hotel called Etoile, situated in a PERFECT neighbourhood of the city. They have a fabulous pool and a gym. You will have daily breakfast provided.
2. Wine Tasting
We can’t go to Argentina without doing the wine experience. We’ll go to a cool place that’s waiting for us and do a fabulous wine tasting. Your fee is paid. We will have lots of Malbec (a specific grape from that region), just so we can have a great time together.
3. Private Tango Lessons
We are invited to one of the Buenos Aires studios to have a couple of dance classes. The first one is private just for us, just so we can get comfortable. The second one is with more strangers, to show off your moves and get you out of your comfort zone.
4. One of the Most Fabulous Live Shows You’ll Ever See
That’s right. We can’t disclose too much of this, but we will get you into a magical show that takes place in Buenos Aires when we’ll be there. Your ticket is paid, be ready to be wowed. 🙂
5. Tigre Tour – Delta Expedition
This is South America, so for one day we won’t be sophisticated, elegant and classy the whole time. Get ready for a fabulous adventure in the wild Delta outside the city, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Your fee is covered.
6. Personalized Art Tour
What you see above in the picture is not a theatre, it’s a bookstore. The reason we chose Buenos Aires for this edition of The Spark Experience is because this city is truly fabulous. It’s full of art and history, so we will take you for a fantastic tour around the capital. If you’re an art lover, you know what we’re talking about.
7. Personalized Wine Bottle
Did we say anything about wine yet? Of course we did, but we need to add something. You will receive a bottle of wine with your face on it – with a personalized label that will make you remember this trip forever. Unless, of course, you’ll break the bottle. 🙂
8. Buenos Aires Private Tour
Argentina’s capital is not just an art city, but a conglomerate of beauties. We will have our own guide and a car to take us around town so you learn everything about it.
9. Shopping Experience Walking Tour
You will be taken to the hot spot of Buenos Aires, where shopping is an experience in itself. You will see with your own eyes, so we’re not going to tell you any other thing.
10. Pick Up From & Drop Off at the Airport
You’ll be picked up at the airport in Buenos Aires and brought to our hotel, where we’ll be waiting for you with a drink. You are a special guest, so we will start your getaway the right way. A ride to the airport on the last day is also set.
11. Local Private Driver
A lot of people are ignorant when it comes to the cost of local transportation when they travel. Since this will be 7-day experience with trips to many locations, we will have my driver where we need to go in group.
I’ll also spend some one-on-one time with you, to chat with you about your life, business ideas, or anything else you may need help with (or, I will tell you how it’s actually cheaper for me to travel than to stay at home) – if interested.
DEADLINE FOR EARLY BIRD PRICE (February 15)
WHO THIS IS FOR
- 9-5’ers or someone who’s been working long hours and wants to detach himself/herself from daily reality.
- Freelancers and entrepreneurs who want to spark their business spirit with some sun and sea, and meet some partners in crime who may become creative collaborators, or just inspire an brilliant idea over wine.
- Mid-life crisis individuals who don’t want to have regrets. My parents always told me that the only regret they had is not traveling enough.
- Someone who wants to recharge their life, and press the reset button.
- Someone who wants to surprise his/her partner with an incredible birthday or anniversary gift
- Friends who’ve been asking me if they can come with me on any of my travels.
- Someone who is coming out of a relationship and wants to experience things they feel they’ve been missing out on and celebrate being single.
- People who want to get out of their comfort zone.
WHAT THIS EXPERIENCE IS NOT
- An all-inclusive trip where flights, drinks and all meals are included. Breakfast included everyday. Flights are your responsibility.
- A mastermind conference or MLM business.
- A drama-queen friendly zone. Leave your problems at home.
- A ‘please-stay-with-the-group-the-whole-time’ experience.
- A big group of people where you get lost in the shuffle.
- A party all night, sleep all day trip. You can do that at home.
- Your average day.
Nope, you won’t ride an ostrich. We’ll do that in Curacao in February.
WHO ARE THE 10 SELECTED APPLICANTS?
Similar to the Spark Experience participants who join the Cartagena or Tuscany trips, I am carefully selecting the people that will be coming to Buenos Aires. Hence the application form. I’ll tell you why.
The people you meet are one of the most meaningful parts of a travel experience. Do you know how sometimes in a group there’s someone who the rest refers to as: ‘that guy’ or ‘that chick’? That’s not going to happen here. After phone interviews, researching social media profiles, getting references from common acquaintances, I’ll put together our travel dream team. You’ll be with people who have life stories to tell, knowledge to share, and dared to apply to be part of this Travel by Dart episode.
I want all ten people who come with us to leave as best friends at the end of the trip.The idea is to keep in touch forever, become an exclusive community over time, and go other memorable trips together.
Here is the kicker: you won’t know who the other nine travel partners are until a day before the trip! I will send you a personalized email revealing who you’ll be spending this amazing week with.
This is the last Spark Experience cohort, spending quality time in Tuscany.

THE REAL ROCKSTAR
Gene is an international renowned artist, being invited to host art workshops all over the world. He will be our private guide in Argentina.

HAVE WE MET? HERE IS WHY YOU SHOULD TRAVEL WITH ME
One of the best things that happened to me was to be laid off from OMNI Television. It forced me to find ways to support myself and challenged my entrepreneurial spirit. As Jim Rohn says, “Formal education will make you a living, self-education will make you a fortune”.
My breakthrough came after a trip to South Africa that I initially didn’t want to take because I wanted “to wait until I make more money”. But my best friend pushed me to go. Although I spent more money than I anticipated or wanted to, the getaway changed my life. It made me realize that life experiences are far more intrinsically valuable than things, it revitalized my mind, sparked my imagination, and inspired me to create the venture that ended up being my bread and butter today.
I now travel and have unique experiences that generations of families don’t have in a lifetime, from diving the shipwrecks in the Bermuda Triangle, to discovering the mystery of the Easter Island heads, cruising on pirate ships in Indonesia, being invited into J Balvin’s house, and staying in 5-star hotels.
For the last few months, I’ve made sandy beaches and pools my home in Colombia, Curacao, Portugal and Bermuda. Let me share my love of travel, adventure, and Argentina with you.
For those who want to immortalize themselves, this is your chance to be on a travel show and be in the Italy episode for my Travel by Dart web series.
If you’re looking for a creative spark, I’m an entrepreneur who has been a sports reporter, made the State’s “most wanted” list in Romania, had my films shown at film festivals, acted in movies and commercials, worked as a TV producer, created my own web series, and I’m also the founder of the mega-popular Scam Detector platform, a web-based app that educates consumers about the fraudulent activities all over the world. I’ve been featured on ABC, BBC, CBS, FOX, Global, Kiplingers, and pretty much all the major media platforms in the world.
I really hope to meet you in Curaçao. So come with me, and let’s make some real magic together.
I am not a travel agency. I am a lifestyle agency.
