Three places to get off the beaten track in Bolivia

Welcome to Tarabuco in central Bolivia

Bolivia really is an incredible place. Before we visited the country we never imagined it would be somewhere that would leave such a large impression, would be as impressive as it was. We didn’t really think there was a beaten track in Bolivia nor that it would be the place that you can really get …

Santa Cruz finale and the Pantenal

We were ejecteed out of the taxi at a supermarket to pay the balance of the tour, to be left there afterwards. Turns out that Michael Blendinger tours don`t give you the information you need and after a call to the organiser (www.discoveringbolivia.com/) who cut us off after the only point that she reiterated was …

Samaipatas Parque Nacional Amboro

Our bus cruised up to Samaipata, but didn´t stop. We realised that as the final destination was actually Santa Cruz, we had to be pro active and request the stop. A bit difficult when you don´t actually know what it is meant to look like. Either way we got off in the nick of time …

Day 3: Geysers and Volcanoes of Bolivia

Pictures speak louder than words and word cannot describe day 3 too adequately. We were abruptly awoken at 4:05am, too early for all, especially with the cold that we faced when getting out of our beds clothed with our numerous layers and covered with 4 thick blankets. Either way we had another exciting day ahead as …

Day 2: The Siloli Desert

We woke the next morning in awe at the Hollywood-esque landscape. The dawn was just breaking and it seemed that the rainbow was being pulled by mother nature skyward. A dark blue was undercut by a faint yellow, when in between them an orange appeared, followed by a pink in between, then green, purple and …

Day 1: Salar de Uyuni

How the Earth can look like this is truly awe inspiring. We finally set off on the trip that we had been looking forward to the most in South America.  We had met a guy outside the front of the closed tour office who was French and had lived in Guyana for 7 years and …
