We recently spent a week in Florida – however it did not at all live up to its nickname of the Sunshine State as we got well acquainted with the rain. We didn’t let the rain ruin our fun and we still managed to enjoy some truly incredible sunsets.
On our way back into North America from South America, we had a longish layover in Houston, Texas. We had decided we had more than enough time to get out of the airport and spend the day exploring!
We were coming to the end of our incredible 3 months in South America and we had saved our visit to Cusco til the end – mainly because it was the cheapest place to fly out of, but also because it seemed like the perfect way to end the trip. And ultimately what this meant, was that my expectations were high – very, very high.
Rainbow Mountain is one of the newest attractions in Peru. As the site was only discovered in recent years, it is still relatively untouched and less touristy than many other places. We decided to do a day trip with Rainbow Mountain Travels, which was one of the earliest to leave which meant you could arrive at the view point before the hoards of tourists.
For anyone that knows Matt and I.. we are both at very different skill levels on a bicycle. Matt is an avid mountain biker and I know how to ride a bike haha. When we went into Gravity to enquire about riding down death road, I was told that the difficulty level was 2/10, so I decided to be brave and go for it!
The salt flats of Bolivia are one of the most magical places in the world, and whilst the pictures don’t ever do it justice… here are some of my favourites from the day!
Our highlight during our time in La Paz was without a doubt, meeting Crazy Dave. Every day at 1pm, show up to Sucre Plaza aka San Pedro Plaza which is the main square located at the front of San Pedro Prison to meet Crazy Dave and listen to his story about how he ended up in San Pedro Prison and his life inside its walls. You won’t need to look very hard, as he will likely find you if you are sitting in the square at 1pm.
