  • Lake TiticacaLake Titicaca (Peru and Bolivia) 21st – 26th August We made it back in one piece, as did the car, to Cusco where we`d arranged to meet the car rental man at the airport. Naturally, being Peru, he didn`t turn Posted by kathystravels in Notes From A Big World | Aug 25, 2010
  • UyuniAnd by bus to Uyuni in Bolivia. This is a very scenic bus ride, the road was good on the chilean side, but unsurfaced and bumpy on the bolivian side. The pedestrian part of the Avenida Arce between the train Posted by UliS in South Amerika | Nov 1, 2019
  • 3 days in the most impressive desert in the world: UyuniI spent 3 months in South America and - with Patagonia - Bolivia was the most impressive country to visit.

  • Salty GoodnessOur bus arrived into Uyuni earlier than expected…we had to get off the bus at 5.30am and it was bloody freezing! Luckily we were met from the bus and taken to a local restaurant for some breakfast. 2 hours later Posted by sdyzart in BrimItOn Tour | Feb 18, 2019
  • Tragedy in La PazWe arrived into La Paz around 3pm and found the border crossing was suprisingly easy. The security check was blasé, they asked if we had fruit, patted our bags and then sent us on our way. Whilst on route to Posted by sdyzart in BrimItOn Tour | Feb 17, 2019

  • Diamond GeyserAn early breakfast done, we loaded up the 4x4 before taking a small stroll over to the local cemetery where interestingly tinsel is used to adorn the shrines (guessing that flowers were hard to come by in the desert). Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Oct 16, 2018
  • Salt Of The EarthThe overnight bus arrived in Uyuni right on time (7am) and seeing as I didn’t need to be at the tour company office until 10am, it meant I had plenty of time for a leisurely breakfast. I wandered down Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Oct 16, 2018
  • I’m A Celebrity What an amazing storm we had last night accompanied by another power cut that lasted all night too (and in fact power hadn’t returned as I left LSV). Goodbyes said and the remaining volunteers set off to work leaving Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Oct 12, 2018
  • If You Go Down To The Woods TodayWhilst I’d mostly enjoyed my time at LSV, I have to admit I was happy with the thought of moving on. I had met some lovely people and had really enjoyed interacting with the animals, but I was desperate Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Oct 11, 2018

  • Monkey Heist Surprisingly I was back on bears and cats but I was rather pleased to be able to get to spend more time with these wonderful animals again. It was also good as the routine was becoming very familiar and Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Oct 11, 2018
  • Rat Room .... Not RaccoonDay 2 on cats and bears with Kenny which was good news for me. As with the birds, there was a set routine which is basically clean, feed and observe. The bears were first with Aruma as usual Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Oct 11, 2018
  • Goldilocks And The Three BearsYay, no birds for me today! I was down to work with Kenny and Bram on Bears and Cats so I was very excited. I even got a clean shirt for the occasion! First a small walk through the rain Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Oct 11, 2018
