It feels like a lifetime away after a year of lockdown.
But there was a time when we all travelled freely and I set out on a South American odyssey.
I spent much of that time in Bolivia and the various journeys I undertook included retracing the final journey of Che Guvara.
The Cuban revolutionary met his end in a remote Bolivian pueblo in 1967 — that’s me [above] pictured at the end of the Che Guevara Trail in La Higuera.
With international travel still off limits, I’ll be recreating that journey, amongst others, for a new travel talk hosted by the American travel specialists Context Travel.
My talk, Unexpected Bolivia, forms part of a wider programme of South America specials under the Context Conversations strand.
It will be hosted via Zoom on Saturday, March 20 at 4pm UK time. But what to expect?
- The last days of Che Guevara
- The Salar de Uyuni
- The little-known tinku festival
- On the trail of Butch and Sundance
Book your place here. It’s a one-hour talk, followed by 15 minutes of Q&A for Bolivia travel tips when we can all – finally – travel again.
