We are used to doing all and everything online using the internet. From banking transactions to ordering a pizza to our tables we do various daily tasks via the internet.
Last year my sister and I headed to Bolivia after travelling in Peru. Same as before, we had very limited time for this beautiful country and we only spent a week there. We got the chance to visit the capital La Paz and Uyuni Salar Region. La Paz is the world’s highest administrative capital. The Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat which is 10,582 square kilometres (4,086 sq miles). Its area is almost equal the size of Lebanon. To see enough of the Uyuni area, you should spend at least 3 days to see the main attractions.

Machu Picchu is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and is also a UNESCO World Culture Heritage that makes it highly popular and attractive. Actually, even without these titles, Machu Picchu is an outstanding and magnificent ancient city. I bet it is also on the bucket list of many tourists and travelers. Well if yo are one of those travelers, the first thing you have to do after you decide on your trip to Peru is to book and buy your Machu Picchu/Huayna Picchu ticket. Because the number of tickets are limited. Each day only 2500 tickets are sold for Machu Picchu and 400 tickets for Huayna Picchu.
Last year my sister and I were travelling in Peru. We only spent one week in Peru where we should have spent at least 2 weeks. We were in the capital city, Lima, Ica, Cusco, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Puno. Machu Picchu was really a fascinating place. We spent one day in Machu Picchu, walked around the city and enjoyed the magnificent views.

After Cuba our next destination was Colombia. My sister and I were traveling in Colombia between 18 and 24th January 2015. We stayed 4 days in Bogota and 5 days in Cartagena. We enjoyed both of those cities but our favorite was the pearl of Caribbean, Cartagena. At least a week is enough for visiting Cartagena and its surroundings.

Colombia was our first destination in South America. We were a little bit wary about Colombia because of warnings we received from some of our friends who had been and had lived in Colombia about crime and robbery. But the capital city of Colombia, Bogota, with its Soho style red brick houses and the queen of the Caribbean Coast, Cartagena, with its Spanish colonial heritage style, a maze of cobbled alleys, balconies covered in bougainvillea totally amazed us. Despite its bad reputation we found out that Colombia is one of the most beautiful countries in South America. Continue reading “12 Interesting Facts About Colombia,The Land of Coffee and Emerald”
In the Dominican Republic, we found a cheap flight to Havana and wanted to visit Cuba before the lifting of US embargoes and the invasion of American tourists. We had only 5 days to see Vinales, Havana and its surroundings. We stayed in Havana and made daily trips to Havana surroundings.
My sister and I headed to the Dominican Republic after Antigua and Barbuda. We spent 11 days in this beautiful island on the Caribbean sea. Unfortunately we didn’t have time to visit its neighboring country, Haiti or Puerto Rico. We found the Dominican Republic moderately cheap after Antigua and Barbuda. We really liked its green nature, great beaches and smiley people.
