Bolivia: Salteñas and Salt Flats

There is something magical about traveling; going to an unknown place with an oftentimes different way of viewing the world and with its own cultural and natural wonders. One of my favorite parts of traveling is wandering; exploring sites of interest that are on and off the beaten path is one of the things that excites me the most. A view from above.

Why not make Sucre your next Travel Destination

Not being much of a planner, I often arrive at my next travel destination not knowing what to expect and Sucre, in Bolivia was no exception, however, I instantly fell in love with this quaint little city.

Bonsai Mel

Exploring Lake Titicaca

Bolivia and Peru are two neighbouring South American countries that share as many similarities as they do stark differences. Both boast incredibly varied landscapes. From lush jungles teeming with plant and animal life, to baron deserts that stretch for miles, to gorgeous expansive beaches, to perilous, rocky snow capped peaks, valleys and mountains, some with cities and towns built right into them. If you travel by bus through either of the countries for a mere few hours, you’ll be bombarded with a shocking amount of different kinds of natural beauty.
