Books and Bolivia

Bolivia has been an extraordinary adventure both on and off the bike.

Cycling over mountains can be tiring and I at the end of a days adventure I love to read books in my tent before I fall asleep.  Paper books are my favorite but they are too big and heavy to carry on my bicycle so I have to use a kindle instead.

Sometimes the landscapes were so extraordinary and different from back home it seemed I was cycling on another planet.
I became a stronger person after surviving the challenge of 11 days with no money.  It was fun solving this problem by making bracelets and swapping them for food.

I made many friends along the way and I fell in love with Bolivia’s indigenous people.

I’m so thankful I read lots of books as a child because now I’m writing my very own adventure book about Bolivia!

    • Hi! It’s the Altiplano just after reaching Bolivia from San Pedro de Attacama in Chile. The colours were surreal there! x
