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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Isla del Sol

This is where the Inca’s believe that the sun was born and the next island over is Isla del Luna, the birth place of the moon. The Inka legend says that it was the god, Viracocha, who rose here from Lake Titicaca after a great flood, to create the sun, moon and stars. There is also an underwater temple […]

Copacabana

We arrived in Bolivia a few days ago and stopped in Copacabana for a little recharge before heading off the Isla del Sol and Isla del Luna. This is a cute little beach town where the sun seems to shine everyday. Here is our friend, Sergio, from Colombia that we met on the bus from Puno.

We are staying in […]
