rickshaw staff ross and friend on salkantay trek in peru


To choose a favourite country is just too hard as they are so different, but for a cultural shock (in a good way!) you must visit the high altitudes of Bolivia to explore the salt flats, discover the families of the floating islands of Lake Titicaca, and if you are feeling adventurous perhaps cycle down the world’s most dangerous road! For something a little bit different and a real adventure visit Bolivia, I am sure you will love it as much as I do.

When I travelled to South America I had no intention to stop in Bolivia, and I am so thankful I changed my mind! Considering I am not a city lover, there is something really special about La Paz. My biggest highlight without a doubt was the fascinating Uyuni Salt Flats, I witnessed the most outstanding sunset that lit up the sky in flamingo pink. It will be in my mind forever. My jaw touched the floor for the whole trip, I was so surprised to how incredible the panoramic views were. I cannot wait to head back to Bolivia in the future to discover the Amazon.
