Kirsten Matthiesen; I have just arrived in Bolivia a few hours ago, where for the next 2 months I will be photographing butterflies, going to a language school in Spanish, experiencing the local carnival and what else I find on the way.
Peter Møllmann has been here for a month and has thus already photographed a lot of great beautiful butterflies.

Frank Aalestrup; A trip that starts today January 2, 2019, knows that I drive to Copenhagen, Denmark to meet with a travel companion Nikolaj Kleissl, so that together we can start the journey tomorrow morning ... with a closed Storebælt's bridge because of windy weather and a train accident put a little brake in for my arrival in Zealand.

My Blog
It will be a travel description and a description of what I experience during my stay in Bolivia.
I am on a photo tour in the area of Caranavi it is approx. 5 hours drive from the capital La Paz.
