Take a three minute journey of highlights from my four-month trip to Bolivia, where the mission was to volunteer with literacy NGO, BiblioWorks, in Sucre, Bolivia.
I helped develop learning initiatives at one of their eight libraries in the small town of Morado Q’asa outside the city and worked with the BiblioWorks staff to organize, execute and fund the first ever Literacy Fair in downtown Sucre.
When I wasn’t volunteering, I traveled to Cochabamba, La Paz, Santa Cruz, Lake Titicaca and Salar de Uyuni. I mountain biked down the Death Road, watched the sun rise at the world’s largest salt flats and spent three days celebrating Carnival in Sucre with local friends.
It was a much different experience than traveling deeper in Guatemala, Argentina and Colombia, but like each of the other countries I’ve called home, I have memories and friends that I’ll keep with me forever.
Travel Deeper – Colombia, coming soon!
