Itinerary Options

I’m still trying to decide what to do next, but I think I’m forming a plan.

I did debate staying here for all the time I have, teaching some web stuff maybe, for free.  But nobody seemed that interested when I mentioned it, so I think it’s worth heading off.

I’ve already been to San Pedro de Atacama, but heck, it’s a nice spot on the planet and is on the way to Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni the world’s largest salt flat.  I love extremes, and that’s as far as it can get, I reckon.

My only worry is that it’ll probably be bloody cold up in the mountains, so I’ll go and buy another fleece and a hat, methinks.  Maybe a pair of gloves to?

After that, La Paz and a bit of exploring there, then take the boat across Lake Titicaca to Puno, then to Cuzco.  If I have time there and feel up to it I can do the Machu Picchu trail as it’s the right season to do it and the weather’s pleasant there right now.  Puno to Machu Picchu are already known to me, but the trail would be new, as would be crossing the lake.  I also know it’s quite easy to get flights from Cuzco to Lima or from La Paz to Lima, should my itinerary slip a little.

So what do you think?  Sounds like a plan?

Definitely! I haven’t been to Machu Picchu myself, but the inlaws have and they say it was stunning!

Do they do salt flat racing at Salar de Uyuni? That’d be right up your street

Sadly not, as far as I’m aware…but will look out for it just in case. Would be a laugh, if a touch dangerous in a place where the nearest decent hospital is about 12hrs away!
