Bolivia

Unfortunately due to time (and money) constraints I had to start heading east across South America rather than venture further north to some countries I really would have liked to visit. As such from Cusco I jumped on a bus towards La Paz, Bolivia. I must say that the bus journey was super pleasant. Comfiest […]
