This illustrates our travels firstly through Peru where we spent quite some time exploring Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. Peru is so much more than just Machu Picchu. A twelve hour train ride then took us south to Lake Titicaca on the Bolivian border.
Our time in Bolivia was spent at Copacabana on the shores of Lake Titicaca from where we visited the Island of the Moon and the Island of the Sun. We then drove onto La Paz and the ruins of Tiwanaku.
There were three reasons for us revisit Mexico. The amazing ruins of Coba which we did not manage to see on our last visit in 2011. Loltun Caves … scene of the famous “We gave up the chance to visit the portal to Inner Earth in favour of Orange Juice” story. And another visit into the Biosphere to our favourite Rio Bec sites: Calakmul and Chicanna. Added to this was a few days at a site we both feel at home in … Uxmal … and a day at Chichen Itza … because we were just driving by.
