At the beginning of September we finally left Salta (leaving our beautiful apartment and new friends was hard) and made it to Bolivia! We’ve been here three weeks so far and are loving it. We have enjoyed horse riding in Tupiza; an incredible four day jeep trip through the wilderness of the south west; a brief stop in high altitude Potosi which surprised us with its charming, crumbling colonial buildings; and Sucre – a modern, relaxed city with more beautiful architecture. We spent nearly two weeks there taking Spanish conversation classes (Erin), working (Simon), and wandering around the gorgeous streets. As you read this we are now in Samaipata, a small mountain town without internet, so we’ll be quiet for a few days.
Never Ending Voyage Around the Web
This month we’ve been lucky enough to be featured on a number of websites.
Simon is a member of the new site The Nomad Courier featuring postcards from a great group of travel bloggers.
Airtreks included us in their post about career breaks, although we don’t plan to go back to a ‘career’!
Digital Nomad Update
Simon finished working on his first hotel website Goa Stay. He hopes to get more design and development work in this area, as it’s something we know a lot about and he has even built an advanced calendar booking system that integrates with paypal.
He is now working on another site. It’s the first time he has had a big job while travelling around (as opposed to being based in an apartment for a while) and with Bolivia’s flaky internet this is a good test. So far so good, although finding the balance between working and exploring can be tough at times.
