San Pedro de Atacama is one of the best towns to visit for travelers on a short trip to Chile. The reason is because this town filled with many unique outdoor activities to do but prepared to pay some touristy prices to do these activities such as salt lake floating, geyser watching, sandboarding, cycling through Death Valley and busing to Moon Valley.
The world’s largest mirror was just beneath my feet and stretching to the horizon on all direction. Everything we see comes in doubles because of this mirror. This is the world’s largest mirror on the Uyuni salt flats and is the main reason that we wanted to come to country of Bolivia.
On the huge plate of vertical clay wall in front of me are more than 12,000 foot prints of the titans in the past. These indents on the wall are the most significant and biggest deposits of dinosaur footprints in the world. If I were the little boy twenty years ago I will be squealing with delight.
Winny and I arrived in La Paz after 3 months of travel. La Paz is the capital city of the poorest country in South America, Bolivia. Besides being quite modern, many parts of La Paz are quite dangerous to wonder around by ourselves. We did however travel into El Alto, the sister city of La Paz where the poor working class live, to watch the famous Cholita fighting.
For me, Machu Picchu is a dream destination and a place that I must visit in my life time. It is an ancient sacred city completely untouched by the Spaniards colonialization. There are two paths that reaches Machu Picchu. The first way is taking public transport and the second way is to trek along Andes Mountain on the Classic Inca Trail.
One of the main reasons for tourists to travel Arequipa is to visit the two world’s deepest canyons. Both of these canyons are twice as deep as the Grand Canyon in America. Many hikers come to Arequipa to hike the more accessible canyon, Colca Canyon but you could also see a lot by doing a Colca Canyon bus tour.
Island Hopping in Galapagos Island or travel Galapagos Island by cruise? It is probably the most common question asked when planning Galapagos Island travel. Prior to starting my one year tour, I did some extensive study on different travel methods on these island. I did my travel to Galapagos Island in March 2016 for 10 days and my experiences may help you to decide if you will do a Cruise or Island hopping in Galapagos Island.
During our four months tour of South America, we arrived at the Capital of Peru, Lima, also known as the Gastronomic Capital of South America. We have been travelling on a budget for over two months now, but we have booked a restaurant, ranked fourth best in the world, before we have even left Australia. This restaurant is called Central Restaurante.
Going to Easter Island is dream for many, including myself, when we want to understand more about this fascinating ancient civilization and look at the mystical Moai statues. Because my partner and I have both quit our jobs to go on a one year extended trip, we had to work out how to travel to Easter Island on a budget when we are planning our South America trip.
Today was our most perfect day in Antarctica Peninsula. Everything we did and saw today was enough to justify the ticket price to Antarctica. Upon wakening, we saw huge ice mountains surrounded us. The boat was sailing slowly towards Southern Gerlache Strait and our first location was Dorian Bay at Domay point.
