The Great Adventure to Mars

The Best of Sucre, Bolivia

Sucre, Bolivia is the third place I’ve called home over the past two and a half years of living in South America.

The Village You’ll Never Visit

FOTO FRIDAY: La Isla del Sol

La Isla del Sol AKA the Island of the Sun rests peacefully on the Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca.

How to Make Friends While Traveling

How to make friends is one of the most frequent questions I receive in the T2T inbox. The entire concept of this site focuses on that interaction and I base the success of each adventure on the friends I’ve made and authentic moments I’ve shared with locals.
