Bolivia

We did not have a lot of luck with Bolivia due to a combination of getting ill and altitude sickness. This meant we ended up leaving the country without seeing some of the places that were on our list. We have already decided to go back and re-visit the country at a later date, but in meantime here you will see some of the photos of the places we did mange to see.

For where we stayed and our budget view our Bolivia route page.
