The tour comes to an end today and it ends in victory for Ireland - a historic first Test series win in Argentina.
Day 14 - 'Job Done'
The match itself may not have been pretty but if you can't celebrate and enjoy a win then you're in the wrong game.
It has been a hard tour in many ways - lots of travel, difficult pitches, hugely physical opposition - but there are always positives to take and lessons to learn.
We have capped six new players - Rodney Ah You, James Cronin, Rob Herring, Robbie Diack, Noel Reid and Kieran Marmion.
They have gained exposure to the highest level of the game and the coaches have gained a greater understanding of them as players.
We have put more building blocks in place on the road to next season and to the Rugby World Cup.
The day itself is a long one with a trip back to Buenos Aires straight after the game and a meal and the cap presentations for the new lads.
Every squad is different, every tour unique. For two weeks you are in a privileged environment where everyone is committed to one goal - winning.
But every squad must break up and so the dinner serves as a farewell for 'Plum' - forwards coach John Plumtree - as he leaves the coaching team to take up a new role in New Zealand.
John, the other coaches and players can look back with satisfaction at a job well done this season - Six Nations champions and summer tour success. In the words of IRFU President Pat Fitzgerald, 'a great season for Irish rugby'.
After that it is like the last day of school. The bell goes and you're on holidays.....until the focus switches to November and the GUINNESS Series.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny has joined a host of political, sporting and broadcasting legends to send a message of support to the Irish Women's Rugby Squad ahead of the forthcoming Women's Rugby World Cup, which begins in Paris on 1st August.

Speaking after the IRFU's Annual Council meeting, Chief Executive Philip Browne highlighted the importance of ticket revenue to the Union and also their sustained investments in the professional and domestic games.
Listen to post-match reaction from captains Anton Lienert-Brown and Peadar Timmins following the Ireland Under-20s' 45-23 loss to New Zealand in the IRB Junior World Championship 3rd/4th place play-off at Eden Park.
Earlier this week the Ireland squad and management were guests at a reception in Buenos Aires hosted by James McIntyre, the Irish Ambassador to Argentina. We spoke to team manager Michael Kearney and IRFU President Pat Fitzgerald on the night.
Looking forward to the second Test against Argentina, Iain Henderson said: "We need to get our breakdown right and make sure we get a good return from our set piece. If we do that, the backs will look after the rest for us."
Ireland Under-20 head coach Mike Ruddock was 'really pleased' with the performance of his players as they claimed a 38-0 bonus point win over Fiji to advance to the IRB Junior World Championship semi-finals as Pool B winners.
