This week, we visited the beautiful Isla Del Sol which the Inca believe is the place where the god Viracocha arose from Lake Titicaca to create the world.
We did one of the most insane things this past week: We cycled down the world’s most dangerous road – Bolivia’s Death Road. Luckily, we survived the trip!
We spent the last week in Sucre, Bolivia’s capital, where we discovered dozens of types of potatoes in the market. Did you know that potatoes were Bolivia’s main staple?
Explore breathtaking (literally!) Potosi with us, the highest city in the world, colonial gem of Bolivia and once the world’s richest city thanks to its silver mine.
We didn’t expect to like Potosi, the highest city in the world, all that much, but ended up extending our stay by two nights – find out more about this colonial gem!
We finally ticked a huge item off our travel wishlist – the Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia. The best surprise was that the 3-day jeep tour through the Altiplano was about way more natural beauty and adventure than we had expected.
One of the most terrifying experiences on all my travels: Cycling down Bolivia’s notorious Death Road, also known as the most dangerous roads in the world!
We highly recommend Hostal CasArte Takubamba in Sucre, Bolivia! A beautiful hostel with an artsy vibe, we found clean and bright rooms here, a sunny courtyard and good breakfast!
This week’s Polaroid features one of the most memorable sunrises we have experienced on our travels so far: the sunrise over the magnificent Salt Flats in Bolivia.
