Reflections of Salta

As we approached Salta, Argentina, the more nervous we got. We were in our last country. It is over. Sure we are going to try and enjoy the last of it... but it is over. And while we had been looking forward to visiting our friend Leigh (thefutureisred.com and Cloudhead.org) since our last foray at… Continue reading Reflections of Salta

Photo Friday: HDR – Train Cemetery in Uyuni, Bolivia

One of my favorite things to photograph - hands down - has to be anything industrial, decaying, peeling, and full of all that agey texture that only time can make into the perfect patina. So I found myself in a steampunk heaven during the first 30 minutes of our Uyuni Salt Flats tour at the… Continue reading Photo Friday: HDR – Train Cemetery in Uyuni, Bolivia

Tupiza, Bolivia Made Me Shout YEEHAW!

...not really but if you look at the pictures below, you can understand why. Seriously though, do you know how creepy it is to be horseback riding through saguaros and red mountains (like those found near Phoenix vacation rentals) and convincing yourself you aren't in Arizona? As we walked onto the dusty ranch, and I… Continue reading Tupiza, Bolivia Made Me Shout YEEHAW!

Geek Alert: Dinosaur Museum in Sucre, Bolivia

When I was in the 4th grade, Jurassic Park came out and rocked our world. I was one of the millions of kids who heartily exclaimed, "I want to be a paleontologist!" with a little too much glee. Hey, I think Shaun was doing that too. I'm not the only one. Regardless, I find myself… Continue reading Geek Alert: Dinosaur Museum in Sucre, Bolivia

Episode 20 – Death Road in Bolivia

Easily one of my favorite adventures, the World's Most Dangerous Road (or Death Road) in La Paz rocked our face off! What we didn't realize was that we started in the snowy peaks of the surrounding mountains and end in the warm and rainy rainforests 30-40 miles away. This experience single-handedly got me addicted to… Continue reading Episode 20 – Death Road in Bolivia

Since I was a kid I would dream about the mysteries and unknowns that can be found in this mystical, undiscovered place. You really don't know what to expect. So little can be found in… Continue reading Into the Unknown: The Bolivian Amazon

Just a few bits to get a good idea of the very cute and quaint town Copacabana Bolivia on the Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca.
