In Turkey, and I assume in many other places around the world, we are used to hear warnings from our parents, specially our mothers. These warnings include “Don’t go out with wet hair or you’ll catch cold.”, “Don’t eat for at least an hour before you swim or you’ll get stomach cramps!”, “ Put your sun cream on or you will get sun burn.” , “Don’t stay out till late or you won’t be able to wake up in time tomorrow morning.” , “ Drive carefully!” and the list goes on and on. Today I am going to share a story about me and my sister’s adventures in South America which actually meant ignoring all those warnings 🙂
The Rio Carnival, samba dancers, famous football players like Pele and Ronaldo, beautiful beaches of Rio like Copacabana, Lebnon, Ipenama, beach foot volley that is played only by feet, Caipirinha, delicious Churrasco meats, the worldwide known top models are the first things that come to mind when Brazil is mentioned. Today’s post is another one of my Travel Route series, this time it is Brazil I’m going to talk about!
Bolivia is one of the two countries that do not have any shores to the oceans. It has beautiful nature and naive people. It is worth visiting Bolivia, the Uyuni Salt lake and desert region.
The Uyuni Salar region is one of the most visited touristic places in Bolivia and South America. Amazon regions for nature lovers and the high mountains for mountaineers and trekkers are highly recommended spots. To read my other routes, please visit my Travel Route Series.
During our South America trip, we traveled with buses as much as we could especially when there were no time limitations. I generally prefer to travel with anything that stays close to the ground such as trains, buses and cars 🙂 In this post I am going to share my reasons and give you some very useful tips if you’re going to see South America someday.
Machu Picchu, Nazca lines and its relations with aliens , Inca civilization, the local Peruvian people with their colorful outfits, their dark skins and smiling faces are the main things you will probably remember about Peru. Beside these, foods like chifa and ceviche, pisco sour drink and more Inca ruins will welcome you in Peru. We only had to chance to stay for one week in Peru but I highly recommend staying for two weeks at least for anyone who is planning to visit this beautiful country.

Uruguay always reminds of its neighboring country Paraguay. After the latest news like “The 25 reasons to live in Uruguay” in Turkish media, it made me wonder if these news are real or not.
