We met an Australian couple Kat and Andrew, who joined our little group of three and came along on a trip to the Island of the Sun for a night. Reaching the Island and being forced to walk up the Inca stairway was a bit of an effort. It seems that you never stop climbing at altitude when you are in Bolivia or Peru!!! We found the first decent place to book into then we had brekky and were off on our journey to the other end of the island, 4 hours walk away. After reaching what we thought was the highest point of the island we were unable to continue over the top and had to back track a little to find the right path
Stopping for a snack next to some Incan ruins was fascinating and beautiful. With crystal blue waters below and views far out over the lake, it was a hard spot to beat.
Our attempts to complete the 16km roadtrip walk ended when we took a little boat back home. We had all worn ourselves out!! aaaahhhh. Our driver was scouted by his son who then got the petrol and loaded the boat for our trip. This little journey took about 40 mins and saved some tired legs and lungs as we watched the great scenery around us.
After dinner and a few games of cards we headed to bed and passed out quickly. Caught the morning boat back to Copacabana where we sorted out our passage into Peru!
Having run into Adam (another aussie along our journey) he joined our group and we all headed to Puno, Peru
Machu Picchu is our next adventure!! Can´t wait! See you all then.
