The greatness of Bolivia lies in grand part in the strong ancestral roots they maintain, like no other country that I know. Their clothes, their cuisine, the legacy of more than 30 native languages, their traditions, their dances and parties, the use of the coca plant as a way of life, are just some examples. A country that grows and develops protecting its heritage deserves the respect of all of us. Nowadays it is difficult not to mix with the products that come from North America or Europe, but Bolivia maintains its authenticity.
The population is amazing, always curious about foreigners and willing to share. Usually they like more listening thank talking and, although they may seem shy you just have to get close and talk to them. As for the landscapes the Altiplano (the highlands) stands out, on the one hand, and the jungle on the other. Two different worlds. Two different and exciting cultures, the Andean and the jungle ones.
El Pekín Express Canino. In March 2019, my dog Cocaí and I left Madrid with a backpack, a tent and an ambitious mission: hitchhiking to China. When we were in India, an unwanted guest came on the scene and turned the world upside down, including our trip. Three years later we returned home, taking with us a path full of learning, adventures, wonderful beings... and a new dog: Chai :-) More info about this book, actually a trilogy, here (only Spanish).
South America & North America Travel Diaries. These two books speak, in the form of diaries, of my first years as a backpacker, including the encounter with Cocaí in Bolivia and all the adventures I lived with her. I place special emphasis on the connection with nature and the people that the journey gave us. Read more here (only Spanish).
And get news about travels, dogs... and traveling with dogs 😉
