Salar de Uyuni – The Best Of Show


Our final destination in Bolivia was Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat. No matter who we talked to, everyone said this is the best of show in Bolivia. I was like, "Really, a giant pile … [Read more...]

Sucre & Potosi


We had heard a lot about the city of Sucre. Everyone told us it was "THE" spot in Bolivia to lurk. We rolled into town ready to be blown away. I think that sometimes it's better to discover a place … [Read more...]

Ojo Del Inca – Eye Of The Inca


Visiting Sajama, (remember here), turned out to be the perfect first stop after leaving La Paz. The road east was open and safe. We left there all fired up, but I was still a little apprehensive about … [Read more...]

Somos Sprinter Life…Sin Pavimento!


It was finally time to leave La Paz, and after being massively out voted in our last post, (remember here), we decided to take Stevie's route south through Bolivia instead of east to … [Read more...]

Help Us Decide: South or East?

Making a run for it…

The Fighting Cholitas: Happy Mother’s Day!

The World’s Most Dangerous Road


Long before we ever arrived in Bolivia I had heard about The World's Most Dangerous Road, and, of course, shortly after hearing about it, I declared to Stevie that WE would be driving it. Caveat - … [Read more...]

La Paz, Politics, and Cheese


We've probably been in La Paz way too long. It's getting close to 2 weeks now. As I mentioned in the previous post, this is supposed to be a quick stop-over. Not a full on post-up hang. The fact … [Read more...]

La Paz – The highest capital in the world


La Paz is not typically a traveler's highlight. It's a giant city located at ebbing altitudes between 12,000 - 13,500 feet. Most travelers use it as a stop over on their way to other parts of … [Read more...]

Moving Deeper Into Bolivia


We really enjoyed our little lake side hang at Copacabana, but we had to move. The internet connectivity was killing us. Before leaving, we went up to the cathedral to have our van blessed. We're … [Read more...]

Isla Del Sol – Happy Birthday Tree


We headed out to Isla Del Sol for my 39th birthday, as noted in our last post, (remember here). I have to admit, birthdays have always been a big deal to me. I've always taken them very seriously. … [Read more...]
