Bolivia

Bolivia is a country full of spectacular landscapes. When I travelled south from La Paz I entered an area of huge salt flats, deserts and volcanos. While I was there I sometimes felt as if I was on another planet.

Chile

In the north of Chile lies the Atacama desert, which I visited during a trip through South America back in 2016. It's an area that is home to some very unique landscapes, which have names like Moon or Mars valley.

Ecuador

Ecuador is a wonderfully diverse country. Within its comparably small area you find 6000 meters high mountains, volcanos, jungle, waterfalls and the coast if full of interesting wildlife. Especially the Galapagos Islands are a paradise for nature lovers.

Peru

Peru is mostly known for the sacred valley of the Incas with Machu Picchu at its heart. This area near Cusco is beautiful, full of history and surrounded by spectacular mountains. Besides that I also visited parts of the coast and the little desert around Huacachina.
