During these pandemic restricting times, I believe it is fair to say we've all had our fair share of staying at home. Luckily, entertaining platforms such as Netflix, HBO Max or Amazon Prime made the task easier. Since we couldn't really travel anywhere, they brought travel to us through series and films. Here is a selection of my favorites to explore the world while binge-watching. Follow along!
Before leaving Bolivia for good after my 2-year expat adventure there, we had a memorable lunch at Jardín de Asia restaurant. Located within the premises of Los Tajibos hotel, this restaurant offers the best of the Asian and Bolivian worlds through a delicious culinary experience. Read my restaurant review here.
Before leaving Bolivia for good after living two years in the country, we spent our last night at the most exclusive hotel in Santa Cruz de la Sierra: Los Tajibos. Read my hotel review to learn more about the facilities you can find in the premises, how our room was or which foodie options there are.
In these pandemic times, there's nothing like escaping to nature for a much needed break. That's exactly what we did today when exploring the Jurina waterfalls (also known as Chorros de Jurina in Spanish). Located just 30 minutes away from Tarija, I highly recommend visiting this nearby area.
Tiwanaku, also known as Tiahuanaco or Tihuanaco, is located some 76kms from La Paz (link), making it the perfect daytrip. Home to a legendary yet mysterious civilization, it is worth exploring this UNESCO site of ancient ruins near lake Titicaca.
Since this year there were no fun Carnival celebrations in Tarija because of the COVID pandemic, we decided to explore one of the must destinations in Bolivia: lake Titicaca. This mesmerizing lake located in the border with Peru has typically been a touristy spot for nationals and foreigners alike. Discover all there is to do in this travel guide, including tips for visiting Copacabana and the Island of the Sun (Isla del Sol).
I spent this weekend in rural Spain, around Salas de los Infantes in Burgos. Along with my Dad and my brother, we visited some family friends in their village. In these uncertain times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we really enjoyed unplugging and reconnecting with nature and the simple things in life. I might be biased but I'm always amazed by the number (and quality) of activities you can do when visiting Spain. Keep on reading to learn all there is to see around Salas de los Infantes (Burgos).
Although this route is perfect for a summer day trip, it will also amaze you if you do it in any other season. Both Guéthary and Biarritz are beautiful, so I'm sure you won't be disappointed by these couple of French towns by the Atlantic coast! Ready to feel those wanderlust vibes?
