Bolivia: A Journey Home

Home for me is a lot of places. It’s California where I grew up, Hawaii where I plan to move back to after my travels, and it’s Bolivia. My family’s roots are here.  It’s the country I’ve been to the most. So many times I can’t even count.  I love coming back. Every visit is […]

Salt Flats- Day 2

Llamas, flamingos, twisters and geysers…day 2 was a long one, but I saw several things I had never seen before… Like the “Arbol de piedra.” We stayed in a hotel made of salt on day 1, and drove for several hours on day 2. Way too many! On our jouney we passed by at least […]

Santa Cruz

The original plan to Santa Cruz involved us on a 16 hour bus ride from Cochabamba, but that changed when my tio Jaime and cousin Marco said we could go with them. I can’t even explain how much fun we had during the next few days!!! We celebrated Marco’s birthday in SC, and drove through […]

The ride to Cochabamba was looong and tiresome, but we made it their safely, which isn’t always guaranteed when your on a Bolivia bus. We stayed with my grandfather and uncle Pepe at my great grandmothers house. I haven’t been there in 20 years and I remember playing there as a little kid. She is […]
