Potosi, Sucre, and Santa Cruz, or the one where it comes to an end

It’s all winding down now. I’ve basically not taken my camera out in the last couple of weeks (I’ve stolen a couple of pics from Rav instead), done very little of note, generally been getting ready for the end. It’s strange, after such an action packed trip, to be ending with a bit of a … More Potosi, Sucre, and Santa Cruz, or the one where it comes to an end

Uyuni and the Southwestern Circuit, or the one where I can only describe it in photos

People often ask me how I am going to cope with a return to the cold of England. While it’s true that we’ve had more than our fair share of days in the hot hot sun, mainly Bolivia isn’t like that.

Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, or the one where clouds nearly ruined our day

By this point we were completely exhausted from all the steep uphill sections … More Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, or the one where clouds nearly ruined our day

Cusco and the Inca trail, or the one where we have visitors from home!

Even after a couple of days rest in Lima, nothing was going to get me back on another night bus for a little while. With flights not too expensive and about 20x faster than the bus, we took one of our only internal planes and arrived in Cusco within the space of a couple of … More Cusco and the Inca trail, or the one where we have visitors from home!
