Is there any better view than this one on a Monday? I don't think so and unfortunately it's not my daily view. Really wish I would have a life where you can work & travel at the same time. I'm so jealous of those who have this life and admire them. But hey, life's also beautiful in Germany. 😄🌴⛵☀️ #mondaymotivation#workandtravel#travelandwork#verudela#croatiafulloflife

In this post: Bolivia🇧🇴
Bolivia is a mountainous country well-known by its colorful history, diverse wildlife, and jaw-dropping landscapes.
* Salar de Uyuni - the world’s largest salt flats, which creates a flat surface and an unforgettable landscape;
* Laguna Colorada (Red Lagoon) - shallow salty lake whose red hue is due to a variety of algae thriving in the water, which draws in endangered James flamingos;
* Sajama - the highest mountain in Bolivia, an extinct volcano in Sajama National Park along the shores of brightly colored lakes, like Huañacota;
* Titicaca Lake - largest lake in South America, highest navigable body of water in the world, region with crumbling cathedrals, desolate altiplano and checkerboard fields backed by rolling hills and high Andean peaks, UNESCO World Heritage;
* Isla del Sol (Sun Island) - on the Titicaca lake, calm, sacred area with 80 ruins, known as the birthplace of the Incan Sun God;
* Tiwanaku - near Titicaca Lake, monumental remains of ancient city of the powerful pre-Hispanic empire once dominated the area, constructed with carved ashlars stones and complex drainage canals;
* Árbol de Piedra (Stone Tree) - isolated rock made out of sandstone that is shaped like a stunted tree, in the altiplano sand dunes of the Siloli Desert, one of the driest places in the world;
* Islas de Uros (Uros Islands) - 70 man-made islands floating on Lake Titicaca and home to an ancient tribe that pre-dates Incan civilization;
* Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley) - in the driest desert on Earth, surrounded by cascading volcanic peaks as far as the eye can see, with sides that appear to have different colors creating impressive optical illusions during sunrise and sunset;
* La Paz - city fascinating with culture, mysticism and social contrasts, nice restaurants, cafes, markets, hotels, the largest urban cable-car system in the world that offers stunning views of the city and amazing landscape.
LONG WAY ROUND
Touchdown Kolkata!! By reaching here I've finished the four states that I was really worried about - Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand. Every person I met warmed me to be safe in these places. Never to ride at night. Never to speak to strangers.
I've entered each state at night, spoken to strangers everywhere and found that - People are the same throughout. There's good and bad in every person across the globe. And this became one of the biggest lessons that I've learnt on my ride till now.
We just need to be open minded and free of prejudice.
Meanwhile, I'm checking into my hostel at Kolkata and look who I bumped into - Saurabh (@ibttu), the photographer I met at Bodh Gaya. It was pure coincidence and great fun to meet him again.
The day being a Saturday night it was our obligation to go get a couple of beers and that's when we got into the legendary yellow Taxi of Kolkata. The taxi which represented India in the "war of taxis" by Top gear, UK.
In all the cities and towns that I've been to on this trip each place has it's own type of Autos and taxis. Sadly, I haven't documented them this time. But surely will do on my next tour of India. Till then the Kolkata ka Taxi will have to do. "Korbo lorbo jeeth bore"
