Little Places – Copacabana, Bolivia

Ahhh I need to post something about somewhere that wasn’t on my recent trip to India and Sri Lanka! But what to post? Ahhhh yes, I’ve written about it before, but why not Copacabana. Bolivia that is. Because I don’t think I could possibly classify the glitzy beachside suburb of Rio as a ‘Little Place’. But Copacabana certainly is. It

Iguazu Falls – Above and Below

The world has some pretty amazing natural wonders to see, and giant falls rate up there with the best features of our planet.

Salar de Uyuni – Through My Lens

Howdy all, another photographic post for you this Wednesday. Today I return to Bolivia and the amazing Salar de Uyuni and surrounds where I did a three-day tour last November. From salt flats, to salty trains, to flamingos and more, it’s one of the world’s most amazing destinations without a single doubt! Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by – May the
