Another trip, another continent. This time, we discovered South America for the first time and we were not disappointed. During our two week trip, we saw so many different landscapes: from colonial cities to beautiful mountain and volcano chains. It was not always easy as we had to fight against altitude sickness and cold nights but we were soon compensated by breathtaking landscapes, a special fauna with llamas and alpacas as well as unique places such as Machu Picchu and the Uyuni Salt Desert. Interesting in such a trip? This is our 2 week itinerary with the best of Peru and Bolivia.
