South America highlightsOctober 11, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C
South America left us with a nice feeling, with the great food, friendly people (especially in Chile) and the beautiful places that we visited. Even if we traveled 32.000 km by plane and car, in the end we have just seen some spots as there are still many places to visit and discover.
Our highlights were Paracas with the beautiful natural reserve and amazing beaches and a wide variety of birds, Machu Picchu that is a must at least once in a lifetime and Atacama desert that is full of canyons and unexpected fauna. We have seen wild animals (dolphins, birds, alpacas, lamas, guanacos, ostriches and many more) in their own environment which for sure is not comparable with any zoo we have visited before.
Unfortunately we had also a bit of a hard time with altitude in the first day in Cusco, a delayed flight and a medical emergency landing that led to 9 hours spent in a small airport.
All in all, South America gave us a great experience and adventure that for sure will remain the highlight of 2019.Read more
