Travel to Bolivia – Episode 313

categories: south america travel

The Amateur Traveler talks to Michael Tieso about his recent trip to Bolivia. He was traveling from Argentina to Peru and at first Bolivia was just in the way, but he discovered a country worth seeing.

“I hadn’t known much about Bolivia, not too many people were talking about it.So I was curious about the country. There is actually a lot there and I ended up staying much longer than I thought.”

He traveled from the salt flats Salar de Uyuni in the south to Lake Titicaca in the North. He attended Carnaval de Oruro, visited breathtaking capital city of La Paz (it’s very high up), and biked down the Road of Death.

This is Daniel from Madrid. First of all I would like to thank you, it is incredible the work you do with the podcast and the web page. I started hearing the podcast more or less a year ago, I used it in order to improve my English and I have heard during this last year every podcast you have recorded. Now I have finished the number 309 podcast, so I am up-to-date with the show and thanks to you my English comprehension has skyrocketed.

Now I am hooked on the content of the show, I consider myself an amateur traveller and I enjoy discovering with your guests every corner of the world. I also like remembering the places I have visited (New York, Beijing, Xian, Paris, London, Rome, Argentinean’s Patagonia…)

Thanks again for making it so easy for us (non English speakers) to follow your work. Your pronunciation and the audio quality are superb and allow us to get involved in the weekly trip you board us into. I completely agree with the institutions you have mentioned that use your work to teach English. I know this mail is too much flattering but I really don’t find anything to improve so far.

Please, please, continue with this and let us follow you to the most amazing destinations in the world.
