Hello Travelers! 
If you’ve never been to a third world country, love to travel or might be deciding where to plan your next adventure, this blog is for YOU! I invite you to the first traveled roads of La Paz, Bolivia in my new series “Travel in Power". 

Bolivia  is known to home thousands of llamas, alpacas and vicigunas. This location is untouched land filled with wild and domestic llamas. Lago Negro is one if the new stops for tourist on the Salar de Uyuni tour of Oruro.

Double shock in the Midst of Beauty.

There are a lot of things we learn in life, some more basic than the others. We learn to count our money, manage our time and how to aim for success. What we weren’t taught was to enjoy life in the moment without trying to change things. As change has both a positive and negative affect, it’s so important to understand how to just exist, live in the moment, be present or breath peacefully and deeply in the presence of others. This is exactly what I learned in Bolivia. Being there for a month challenged my western mindset and habits. From instant gratification to speaking my opinion whenever I felt like it, sometimes when it isn’t the proper time to do so, I learned how to exist.

Four  hours away from La Paz, Bolivia you can find the famous lake Titicaca. This lake is known for having its small islands of indigenous locals hosting many visitors. It isn't unusual to take a 20 minuet boat ride driven by a 10 year old to an Island of glorious views and sweet locals.

Bolivia  is known for its cold climate so it's always nice to enjoy the natural hot springs with the locals. These hot springs have a small waterfall that is constantly moving the water in and outside of the hot spring pool.

Bolivia has a wide rang of scenery to explore. For those of you who are drawn to desert like scenery, Valle de las Rocas is the place for you. Not only can you take epic photos next to the gigantic rocks, you can also climb them.

Quime is a small pueblo four hours away from La Paz.. This pueblo has strong ties to my family history thanks to my grandfather. Not only was Macedonio Lockmer born and raised in Quime, he is now one of their main investor for their city projects. From their gazebos, schools and market buildings, he continues to give financially to this underdeveloped pueblo. Quime is surrounded by an abundance of greenery  and has a population of 2,439 (Wiki 2001). This was by far the most peaceful area in Bolivia.
