Observations & Ramblings From Two Months Camping Around New Zealand

by Rachel @ Trailing Rachel

Here are a few things that I’ve noticed while camping and housesitting here in New Zealand for the past two and a half months. This post is a bit of a ramble (kinda like this one) so enjoy… New Zealand is expensive. I knew it would be. But like, it’s more expensive than home. Gas and booze especially. And it kills me that I can’t really afford to eat out at all the great-looking restaurants while staying on budget. Losing things in the car makes me feel like I’m losing my mind. When you have literally all of your belongings in a finite space and you can’t find your chapstick, it’s excruciating. Because you know it’s in there somewhere and you’ve just misplaced it, or it’s fallen out of the car never to be seen again… Related: I have to stop setting things on top of the car. Every drive here is beautiful. There’s rarely a time when you’re not looking out the window at some gorgeous view of mountains, lakes, or coastlines. It’s absurd really. It’s also great because the radio in our car doesn’t work anymore… All backpackers here have the same stuff. It’s like, “Oh you have that tent? […]

Julius Caesar at the Bridge Theatre: Review

Julius Caesar at the Bridge Theatre: Review

by Rachel @ Across Land & Sea Travel Blog - Across Land & Sea

After the muted success of Young Marx, I was hopeful that the new and beautiful Bridge Theatre's second offering would trump its first. Trump, indeed, as this is a political play which considers the threat of dictatorship. Inside the auditorium, David Calder's presidential face is printed on badges, campaign boards and flyers - "Do this!" we're ordered by Caesar himself. 

Seizing the vast promenade space from the start, a rock band entertains the 'mob' and wheeled stalls sell beers and t-shirts, as if at a festival. The drum-heavy renditions of Katy Perry and Oasis tracks may encourage some to plug their fingers in their ears, but it does well to engage the standing audience members who quickly become part of the action.

This is a modern day Shakespeare which centres on the streets. Secret meetings at bus stops, public appearances of rulers protected by security guards, and barbed wire barricades - all surrounded by us, ruffians on street corners. Navigating the throng is a vibrant cast: Adjoa Andoh plays a lively, gossiping Casca and David Morrissey a slippery Marc Anthony. Calder's Caesar is entitled, yet not overtly tyrannical. 

Brutus is portrayed by Ben Whishaw as an intelligent and well-intentioned man with flawed ideas. He is swayed by the reasoning of an urgent Cassius (Michelle Fairley), but he proceeds to misjudge the outcome of a vital decision. Controlled and eager, he does not expect his logic to fail and one autocrat to be replaced by another.

At times, the production shines. Whishaw's pitch-perfect delivery of Shakespeare's prose is delightful to hear, and it is hard not to be impressed with the active nature of the staging: stage blocks rise and fall, characters enter from the crowd and set materialises from the darkness. Yet, the pivotal murder sequence does not quite bring the drama it deserves. It seems too formulaic and the giggles floating from the pit render the scene anti-climactic. Nevertheless, Hytner does away with an interval and condenses the play into a swift two hours, ensuring your attention is always focussed on the next piece of action.

In the end, this play reminded me that history tends to repeat itself. Shakespeare wrote works based on the anxieties of his time, and it is a testament to history that Julius Caesar resonates in 2018, as it did in the seventeenth century. 

    ☆☆☆½

    Julius Caesar is running at The Bridge Theatre until 15 April 2018.

    Saigon to Hanoi by Motorbike: 5 Suggested Routes

    by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

    Riding from Saigon to Hanoi by motorbike is probably the most popular road trip in Vietnam, and it’s unquestionably one of the best ways to experience the country. For years, travellers simply took the most obvious route: Highway 1. Today, however, thanks to ambitious road building programs, there are far more scenic, pleasant and less trodden ways to ride between the country’s two main cities. Having ridden south to north on numerous occasions (the first time, predictably, on Highway 1), I’ve put together the following 5 suggested motorbike routes from Saigon to Hanoi, so that travellers who are planning this road trip have more of an idea of the kind of options available to them. 1. THE CLASSIC: Total Distance: 2,770km Average Duration: 2-4 weeks Road Conditions: paved rural & coastal back-roads, new & old highways Navigation: mostly simple, some tricky bits in central areas Scenery: coast, highlands, mountains, limestone, cities, villages, cultural sites DESCRIPTION: Weaving a course between coast and highlands, The Classic route is equal parts beach and mountain. Quiet, stunning coastal roads in the south and central provinces yield to a mighty landscape of limestone karsts on the Ho Chi Minh Road in the north-central region. Popular towns and sights, such as Mui...

    Fancy one of the world’s greatest food experiences? Try Hanoi

    by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

                                           Tourists eat out late at night in Hanoi. Photo by VnExpress/Giang Huy The Telegraph gets its teeth into Hanoi cuisine, and it’s not the famous ‘pho’ or Obama’s ‘bun cha’ Many people are drawn to a destination just because of how well it triggers their appetite, and for that reason, Hanoi is one of the world’s greatest cities to visit, The Telegraph recommends. The U.K. newspaper published a list of “the world’s 17 greatest cities for food” on Sunday and the Vietnamese capital grabbed second spot, after Tokyo. “Hanoi’s compact old center is arguably the better place to sample the balance of salt, sweet, sour and spice in Vietnamese cuisine,” it said, comparing the city with the popular southern metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City, which is “more international”. Hanoi is where one can take to the streets and eat like a local, it said. The city offers some of the most popular Vietnamese dishes such as “banh mi”, a baguette usually filled with grilled pork, meatballs or cold cuts, cucumber, cilantro, pickled carrots, liver pâté and a swipe of mayonnaise, or “com...

I do neglect the blog when I’m feeling less motivated. I’m sorry for being the worst. Look, Albania is awesome. My biggest regret (other than not spending more time there) is that I didn’t write this post sooner and it’s now the end of the summer season, and I may have deprived some people of a tiny source of Internet information for their Balkans travel planning… because there’s not a lot out there on Albania. Because, trust me, this place is exceptional. And it’s still cool in September even when the crowds have died down! When people ask me where I’ve got to return to, Albania is at the top of my list. Still. One year later and I feel like I haven’t delved beneath the enigmatic exterior that is Albania and it’s wonderfully welcoming yet stoic people. There are some places that are easy to love. There are some places with simple logistics and a well-worn tourist trail. And there are some places where you have to convince your travel companion that you’ve gotta […]

    The Birthday Party at The Harold Pinter Theatre: Review

    The Birthday Party at The Harold Pinter Theatre: Review

    by Rachel @ Across Land & Sea Travel Blog - Across Land & Sea

    Since watching The Homecoming at Trafalgar Studios (2015) and The Caretaker at the Old Vic (2016), I have developed a fondness for reinventions of Pinter's uncomfortable, puzzling plays. Ian Rickson's revival similarly respects the original text whilst offering a controlled and fresh interpretation of The Birthday Party. 

    The party is held at Meg and Petey's tired seaside boarding-house, a dusty place with peeling wallpaper and fried bread breakfasts, where Stanley has resided for about a year and has become very much part of the furniture. Their mundane lives are disrupted by the suspicious arrival of Goldberg and McCann and from this point on, the sense of peril never quite leaves the stage. 

    The casting of Toby Jones as the mulish hermit is brilliant. His Stanley is shuffling and grubby, relishing the mothering, and sometimes smothering, nature of his ditzy landlady (Zoe Wanamaker), before viciously tormenting her. He strikes the balance between menace and vulnerability expertly; you never quite know whether to be afraid of him, or afraid for him. Often, it's both.

    Much like Timothy Spall's Davies in The Caretaker, Stanley's identity is unclear and the truth about his past a mystery. He once played piano all over the world, or was it just at a concert hall in Lower Edmonton? In fact, nobody is quite who they appear to be. McCann is also Dermot or Seamus, and Goldberg goes by Simey and Benny.

    Stephen Mangan's Goldberg is a commanding presence, especially when he is alongside Jones' cowering Stanley. He seems to wear a permanent threatening grin, which aids him to deliver Pinter's darkly comedic lines with a satisfying bluntness. He also appears to create a few jokes of his own, such as when he requests Lulu get up from his lap for him to awkwardly rearrange his trousers.

    What I find so delightfully frustrating about Pinter's plays is how he forces you to imagine: to visualise Lulu's horror in the darkness, to ponder Stanley's fate outside the confines of the boarding-house, to wonder when Meg will realise that her lodger is gone. Ultimately, the power of this play rests in its ability to haunt you long after the curtain has fallen. 

    ☆☆☆☆

    The Birthday Party is running at The Harold Pinter Theatre until 14 April 2018. 


    a bit of background...

    Before I left England in June 2016 to travel, I lived in London for two years, visiting the theatre around once a week. My family frequently took me to the theatre when I was growing up so my love for the stage has grown organically over the past twenty years. I follow closely the works of Headlong, Complicité, Kneehigh, Punchdrunk, Grandage and Branagh, and I am partial to a great musical.

    Going Wild: 15 Treks in South America | South America

    by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

    Let’s think of South America as the world’s playground. Everyone has heard of the Inca Trail, but when it comes to treks in South America, that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface. You can get the most from your time on the continent by exploring its limits. You can cross borders on your own two feet or be at the top of a volcano before the sun has even peeked over the horizon. And that, guys, is what adventure travel is all about. There are thousands of trails to choose from in South America. Knowing just which trek to pick can be your first big challenge.

    HANOI STREET FOOD - LOCAL FOOD - HANOI CUISINE


    Vietnam Travel & Cruise

    Discover Hanoi’s cuisine! We start our Street food walking tour from Hanoi’s largest covered market, Dong Xuan from 17.00 PM. Your expert English-speaking local guide will give you an insight into the intricacies and traditions of Vietnamese food culture including details on ingredients and historical backgrounds of popular northern dishes. We eat as we go, trying seasonal fruits and sampling some tasty snack from a street cart. Banh cuon – If the French has this famous delicious crepe made of wheat, egg and dairy products; Vietnamese and particularly Hanoian is proud of their steamed crepe from rice flour and water. A savoury meal, the inside stuffing contains ground pork, wood-ear and seasoning. Most street chefs make the dish right at door so look for a place that steams are coming up high. Banh cuon is served with nuoc mam, a mixture of fish sauce, sugar and lime. Bun rieu cua – Freshwater crabs flavor this tangy tomato soup that’s made with round rice vermicelli and topped with pounded crabmeat, deep-fried tofu and, often, congealed blood. An odoriferous purple shrimp paste is offered on the side -it tastes delicious. Chilies and fresh herbs are the finishing touches for a complete one-dish meal. Pho – or rice noodle soup- is omnipresent in Hanoi, appearing anywhere from street vendors to high end restaurant chain Pho 24 This universally famous food is best enjoyed in Hanoi, where it was “invented” in the early 20th century. Some is served with chicken and some with beef. Each type of meat entails a variety of sub-dish, using from beef tenderloin to beef brisket, chicken wing to chicken thigh. You can choose among three light dinner dishes, from the extremely popular “Phở” (Noodle soup), “Bún chả” (grilled pork vermicelli soup) and lastly, our personal favorite “Bún Bò” (Beef rice vermicelli soup). In the end, the guide will take you to Ta Hien street where is one of the hot spots for beer, sitting at a street corner in Hanoi old quarter with a beer glass. The Food tour is end at 20.30 PM in Hoan Kiem Lake, our tour guide will take you back to your hotel and say goodbye. Tour inclusion: Tour as mentioned and air-conditioned transfers.

    Autumn spirit served up in the form of rice flakes by Hanoi village

    by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

    Like pumpkins and candy at Halloween, rice flakes are a must during the fall in the capital. It is an unwritten rule that when you talk about autumn in Hanoi, you have to mention rice flakes. No one knows when the flat sticky rice first became an autumn delicacy in the capital, but the art of making the tasty snack has been well-preserved for more than a century in Me Tri Village. More than 50 households in this village have their fires burning for rice flakes twice a year, depending on the harvest season. Experience shows that rice picked during fall makes the best rice flakes because it is sweeter and more aromatic. The sticky rice used for rice flakes should come from young plants. Me Tri Village in Nam Tu Liem District and Vong Village in Cau Giay District are the most famous places in the north for this treat. These women are removing the grains from paddy flowers. The grains are soaked in water. The tailings, which float to the surface, are removed. The grains are roasted for two hours.  Then they are ground under a wooden pestle, and the ground grains are screened again to remove all the husks. The final product is wrapped in lotus leaves, and these green-yellow...

    7 winter warmers to ward off the cold in Hanoi

    by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

    Follow the locals to nameless roadside eateries as the cold snap bites in Vietnam’s capital. Snails Unlike the spicy snails that are carefully fried or grilled in Saigon, the snails served on cold days in Hanoi are simply boiled. Feel the steam from the snails served with ginger sauce and lemongrass. Snails tend to appear in the rivers around Hanoi between autumn and winter. Try the tasty treats in small restaurants at 5 Tong Duy Tan, 1 Dinh Liet, 34A Tran Phu and 88 Cua Bac. Sweet dumplings These dumplings are made from sticky rice stuffed with mung beans or black sesame. The rice balls are then soaked in ginger syrup and served hot. Head to Hang Dieu, Quan Thanh or Tay Ho far a sample of these sweet balls from either age-old eateries or street vendors. Rib porridge Hanoi people love rib porridge and it’s needless to say why this hot congee with quay(fried dough) is a perfect choice for a cold day. There’s a nameless roadside stall at 2A Ly Quoc Su Street that man locals say serves the best rib porridge in Hanoi. You can also find this hot treat in Dong Xuan Market.

    Two Months in Portugal: My Summer in Review, Part 2

    by Rachel @ Trailing Rachel

    I didn’t plan to spend most of my summer in Portugal. I didn’t plan to stay for nearly two months. But I did… and it was phenomenal. Ever just KNOW you’ll love a place before you get there? That’s how I felt about Portugal. Beautiful, affordable, sunny, great wine, amazing beaches? Sign me up. Last year I spent a month in Spain – I know, poor me – and I kept hearing how every backpacker moving through Seville was heading to the Portuguese beach town of Lagos. And I was sad. Because I was going to France instead. (Okay, okay, I ended up spending a great couple of days in the Loire Valley and a week getting silly with my friends in Paris, so it was an overall win. I’m not complaining.) So when I convinced my family to spend their summer vacay in Portugal, that gave me an excuse to finally make my way back to this much anticipated Euro-destination. Via Thailand, of course. Nothin’ like that Auckland > Gold Coast > Kuala Lumpur > Bangkok > London > Madrid > Porto flight path. (Yeah, holy carbon footprint, I should plant some trees this year!) First Stop: Porto Pushed out of Thailand because of that 30-day visa […]

    Capital connection: The 7 bridges of Hanoi

    by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

    Nhat Tan Bridge Nhat Tan Bridge, also known as the Vietnam – Japan Friendship Bridge, was inaugurated in January 2015. It is the first cable-stayed bridge in Hanoi with a total length of 8.9km (5.5 miles) with five spans, representing the capital city’s five ancient gates, crossing the Red River. The project had total investment of VND13,600 billion ($598 million), split between the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Vietnamese government. The bridge was opened for public together with Nhat Tan – Noi Bai Highway which helps shorten travel time between Noi Bai International Airport and Hanoi’s center. Dong Tru Bridge Dong Tru Bridge opened to traffic in October 2014. The 1.1km bridge crossing the Duong River in Long Bien District cost VND882 billion and has eight lanes. It is 55m wide and has two 80m side-spans and a 120m central span. The bridge was built using concrete-filled steel arches, the first time this technology had been used in Southeast Asia. It is also the widest bridge in Vietnam. Thang Long Bridge Thang Long Bridge was built from 1974 to 1985. The 3,250-meter long bridge connects the city with Noi Bai Airport and was considered a symbol of Vietnam-Soviet relations....

    Six reasons why summer (kinda) rhymes with sugar in Vietnam

    by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

    There are millions of ways to enjoy the cool, sweet taste of summer in Vietnam, so here are some of our favorites. Che The sweet, slippery soup is one of the most iconic Vietnamese desserts. There are dozens of versions, ranging from a simple glass of just lotus seeds to a rainbow of beans, roots, cassava and jelly cubes. Crowded che stands can be found in most big markets across the country, including Nam Dong in Hanoi and Ben Thanh in Ho Chi Minh City. For something different, tourists can try the one served at the Cambodian market in the southern city. The shop is owned by a Vietnamese man who grew up in Cambodia but returned in the 1970s, serving the best of both Cambodian and Vietamese desserts. A serving usually costs $1 or less. Ice-cream in a coconut shell One scoop of ice-cream for the summer, or two? Well, it might be easier if you just have it all in a coconut. Kem dua is a special Vietnamese version of ice-cream served in a coconut shell topped with coconut strips, peanuts and chocolate sauce. The best way to eat it is to dig the spoon deep and take a full bite...

    Why You Should Learn German in the City | Germany

    by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

    This post is in partnership with the Speakeasy Berlin. I received complimentary lessons in exchange for an honest review, but all opinions are my own. German is tough to learn. After one month of living in Berlin, I was still fumbling through the most basic interactions. I spent time with more international people than Germans, and the Germans I did know switched to flawless English the minute they saw me sweat. My accent was complete scheiße. Without grammar, I was nervous to speak. I’d managed to learn a few phrases on accident, but if I wasn’t ordering beer or catching a train, my German was next to useless. Even still, it seems learning German in Berlin is going to be a lot harder than learning Spanish in Ecuador. I realized if I ever hoped to tackle this feisty, lawless, not-so-romantic language, I was going to need German classes in Berlin, and lots of them. Thinking about learning German in Berlin? Here’s everything you need to know about learning German with Speakeasy Berlin. Where to Learn German Abroad Are you moving to Germany to learn German OR learning German because you moved to Germany? If your focus is on studying German, you should make […]

    My 2017 Travel Recap – Month by Month

    by Rachel @ Trailing Rachel

    Oh man, I think I’ve missed the whole New Year’s resolution and recap-of-the-past-year blog post bandwagon. But just for giggles, I’m gonna try it. Since I’ve been so slack giving you the latest on my life, here’s what I got up to this year… 2017 was all about making that change from full-time, carefree, backpacker-style traveling to freelancing. That meant camping, housesitting, and having our own car and (at times) our own temporary home. It came with some struggles and rough edges, and it was not always as pretty as these photos entail. But the flexibility to live in a different country every other month is just incredible. Destination wise, while it was awesome and beautiful, I found that New Zealand isn’t my most favorite travel destination in the world, that I’m still in love with Southeast Asia, that Portugal is really all it’s cracked up to be, and that it’s still good to go home occasionally. January Marko and I rang in the New Year sending off a paper lantern into the unbelievably beautiful night sky of Chiang Mai, Thailand surrounded by tons of other glowing lanterns. We ate great tons of khao soi and fried chicken, joined a […]

    Stay Strange: A Design Loft in Munich | Germany

    by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

    This post is in partnership with The Flushing Meadows in Munich. I received a complimentary night in exchange for my honest review, but all opinions are my own! “F…L…U…S…H…I…N…G…M…E…A…D…O…W…S” The light bulbs flickered on in sequence, both spelling out the name of the hotel and casting light onto the otherwise vacant Fraunhoferstraße. You’d never know that Munich is home to 1.43 million people if you happen to arrive on a Wednesday after 8pm. Behind the heavy door was ambient music and an elevator directing me to the fourth floor. The high ceilings and exposed pipes in the hallway felt unapologetically cool. I was impressed and I hadn’t even checked into my room yet. Looking for a unique hotel in Munich with a distinctly cool character? Let me introduce you to the Flushing Meadows. About The Flushing Meadows The Flushing Meadows is a design hotel located in the Glockenbach. The space was initiated by Arnold/Jäger/Werner. The trio are designers, gastronomists, and architects by trade, and you’d never even guess that The Flushing Meadows is their first endeavor into the hotel industry.

    Where Next? My 2018 Travel Plans

    by Rachel @ Trailing Rachel

    The answer is… not all that much! (Aha, clickbait! Gotcha!) Just kidding. Kinda. The real answer is… not much, yet! Man, how far we’ve come since I wrote this post over a year ago while sitting in Nepal watching Trump win the election. I was trying to figure out how to make money to keep traveling, hanging out with an Englishman named Marko, and internally debating if I would, in fact, enjoy a five-day hike in the Himalayas… Okay, so maybe we haven’t come that far. Though I’m no longer in that “I don’t know where I’ll be a week from now and everything I own is sandy” stage, I’m still taking this freelance-and-travel thing about a month at a time. It’s too tough to plan more than that! And it certainly keeps things interesting… Right Now I’m back in England at the moment in Marko’s little village of Shotteswell. Our only plans are to maybe go to the pub, book the massage he got me for Christmas, meet up with some of his friends for beers, see a rugby match, and ummm, do some puzzles and play some games around the house? I’m currently wearing my bathrobe for whole days while I […]

    Eating All the Food in Hanoi (And Another Street Food Tour!) - Trailing Rachel


    Trailing Rachel

    Hanoi’s food scene was everything I’d expected it to be. I tried SO much new stuff in the week that I was there. Though with how crazy plentiful the street food is, the lack of sidewalk space to maneuver around on, and the absolute chaos of motorbikes zipping by, it can be a little overwhelming to decide what your next meal will be. So the solution is simple: eat all the food in Hanoi. Of course, I’m exaggerating. But really, what you should do is try everything you see that looks good (or smells good – literally, sometimes we just followed delicious smells to find the snacks we wanted). You’re never too full for another spring roll, or banh mi… or egg coffee. The best food I’ve had so far has been on the street or at a small place that specializes in only a few or maybe even just one dish. Don’t, just don’t enter a proper restaurant with closed doors or a man out front waving a menu and yelling at you. A big thanks to Anna at Slightly Astray for providing me with what turned out to be a pocket guide (more like a Bible, really) to the food in Hanoi, both in …

    Hanoi’s notorious black market, where anything goes

    by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

    Don’t expect a receipt if you’re looking to buy anything from this market. Most Hanoians would be flummoxed if you asked them where Hoa Binh Market is, but if you asked them about Chợ Giời, it would be a different story. The name Chợ Giời tells a story itself as its earliest vendors used to gather in an open-air spot to sell pretty much everything they owned, hence the name “Giời”, meaning sky, God and outdoors in Vietnamese. The market is believed to have opened in 1955 on the corner of two streets, but since then it has expanded to more than four streets and two big alleys along the busy thoroughfares of Hue and Hang Bai. In Chợ Giời, vendors sell everything from car parts and metal springs to TV remotes. Some old, some new, some possibly stolen. The majority of the goods are mechanical items, and here you can find the tiniest screwdrivers to rare 1980’s amplifiers all under the same roof. Following the war and the subsidy period, Chợ Giời was split down into different departments. Yen Bai 2 Street was known for its CDs and DVDs  —  before the Internet and Youtube changed all that. Nguyen Cong Tru Street draws vendors selling...

    Hanoi’s lantern festival

    by Thuc Nguyen @ Paloma Motorbike Tours

    An exhibition has revived the old spirit as Vietnam counts down to the full moon on Wednesday night. Lanterns for sale on Hang Gai Street during the Mid-Autumn Festival in 1926. The festival peaks on the full moon of the eighth lunar month, which falls on Wednesday this week. Children are drawn to a fish lantern outside a shop on Hang Gai in the Old Quarter. Star-shaped lanterns, the most popular toy during the festival, are made on the sidewalk. A wooden fighting roosters toy in a photo captured in 1937. Animals made from rice flour were popular in Hanoi nearly a century ago. These toys are still on sale in Vietnamese cities, but they now appeal more to nostalgic adults. A lion dance troupe prepares for their performance on Hang Thiec Street. Women make mooncakes on Hang Duong Street, known as the city’s sweets street, in a photo in 1928. A family offers a festival feast on their altar. A crab lantern. The Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences is displaying the photos at the Hanoi Ancient House, 87 Ma May, Hoan Kiem District.

    On an Island in the Sun (Lake Titicaca Remix) | Bolivia

    by Taylor Record @ Travel Outlandish

    You’ll leave Isla del Sol, an island on Lake Titicaca, claiming to have day tripped on “the world’s highest commercially navigable lake”. I bet you’ve just been waiting your whole life to say that, huh? But having seen many of the world’s relatively oldest, biggest, unnecessarily tallest, and arbitrarily best attractions, I can safely say that Lake Titicaca is absolutely worth a visit. It might be the world’s highest, and South America’s second largest, but grandeur aside, it is a lovely place exploding with Bolivian culture. Stretching some 190 km, Lake Titicaca stands besides the Great Lakes in size with a delightfully Bolivian twist. On a quick jaunt from Peru, you’ll find the shores of Copacabana speckled with hardworking women in bowler hats, wearing braids that would take finer haired women a lifetime to grow. You can order trout fished straight from the water, cooked at least thirty different ways, for $3 a plate. The balsa boats call to pre-Colombian times, and no one really mentions the swan-shaped boats and XORBS in the harbor. Lake Titicaca is surprisingly kitschy (as evidenced by the very weird hillside hotel) but these are the things that bring Lake Titicaca from slightly overrun natural wonder to delightfully […]
