Daniel and I spent the weekend enjoying a visit to Lake Titicaca. As usual in Peru, the photos were too good not to share.
During our two days on the lake, the landscape changed dramatically from a cloudy and gray climate over the city of Puno on the shore to a green and sunny escape on the the Amantani and Taquile islands.
Whether you’re interested in taking a trip to Lake Titicaca or just looking for some travel inspiration, you’ve definitely come to the right place.
Get lost in on the highest navigable lake in the world and explore more of the landscapes, people, and culture that makes this part of Peru so special!
