Jinshanling Section of the Wall

Not sure if we lucked out with the weather this week or not? We have had manageable temperatures (for that I am grateful) but no sunshine, either.  The view changes from completely socked in a grey fog to some green hills peaking through the mist. At times it feels as though we are in a dream, walking along this […]

Salta and Cafayate

Thank goodness, Michael and I were able to get the last two seats on the Tuesday bus out of San Pedro de Atacama to Salta. My departure date is fast approaching and since the buses only run on Tuesday and Fridays, and if we had missed that one I would have had no time in Argentina. The bus ride […]

Floating in Laguana Cezar and Vallee de la luna at sunset

Since we never actually made it to the Valley of the moon on our bike ride adventure the other night, we decided to book a car to take us there. The tour also included an afternoon at the Laguna Cezar which is this super salty swimming hole in the desert…similar to the Dead Sea. What an interesting experience to […]

Sunset and star gazing from sand dunes

One of my most memorable adventures on this trip so far has been the night, Michael, Andrew, Rich and I rented bikes and headed out of town at golden hour, with the hopes of making it to the Vallee del luna for sunset. We underestimated the time it would take to get there and when we arrived at the […]

San Pedro de Atacama

Finally, warm weather and maybe the best shower I have ever had! You can imagine after 3 days without one and splashing our feet in the water on the salt flats doesn’t count! I love this quaint Chilean holiday spot. It is full of vacationers, local and foreigners, there are great restaurants and lounges with dj’s playing great music. […]

Salt Flats of Yuyuni

The last three days, and 1500km, have been the highlight of my adventures so far…so much exquisite natural beauty, it feels as though words won’t do it justice! We had an amazing crew, 6 of us in a Land Rover, plus our guide, Tito. We left from Yuyuni and our first stop was the Salt Flats. The white ground […]

Sunny Days in Oruro

As I was walking in the sunshine mint chocolate ice cream in hand, I began thinking about all the fantastic things I had seen and experienced the past 4 days of Carnival. I really believe this is a festival for everyone’s inner child…a time to come out and play freely! It is a time to dress up and drink […]

Carnival in La Paz

I have now discovered that Brazil is not the only country that celebrates Carnival, they ALL seem to in South America and for most of February! We arrived yesterday in La Paz, what a hectic city! The driving here is insane, I don’t understand how it works, but it seems as though there are no traffic rules and therefore […]

Adventure in Sorata

We spent two nights in Sorata and had an amazing time! We stayed at an old Colonial residence with a magical faery garden full of wild flowers, ate the best pizza, hiked 7 hours through the mud to discover a clear underground lake deep under the mountain in San Pedro and even rode a pedal boat around this incredible […]

Journey to Sorata

I said goodbye to my friends, Ka and Astro, on Isla del Sol and I am travelling now with my friend, Michael for this next leg of the journey. We are on a similar schedule with the same itinerary and it has been great to have the company!

The boat ride back from Isla del Sol first thing in the […]
