As I spent the majority of 2018 on the road, I couldn’t help but learn a few things about travelling as an introvert. Here are my insights.
Pucón is a major tourist hotspot in Chile`s lake and volcano region and can be overrun during high season. Solution: Visit in winter!
A lot of people who come to Chile only hit three spots: the Atacama desert in the North, Santiago de Chile in the centre and Patagonia in the South. Maybe they make a stop in the lake region around Villarica and Pucon, if they have the time, or they fly the four-plus hours to Easter Island. And don’t get me wrong, all those
When talking about introvert-suited travel destinations, most people name places that are secluded, only have a limited number of people to allow for plenty of alone-time and impress you with plenty of breathtaking nature. If this sounds like your dream holiday, you can’t do much better than Easter Island. Officially part of Chile, it nevertheless takes several hours on a plane to

However, some of the most memorable days of my Bolivia-trip came when I took a four-day tour from Tupiza to Uyuni, exploring the South-Western part of the country, close to the Chilean
I wrote this blog post and then realised I’m not really giving an answer to the question in the title. The reason behind this whole article is that I don’t have that answer. But don’t stop reading yet! Let me elaborate on the problem of how to get pictures of yourself when there’s no one travelling with you, and then maybe we
Sucre is Bolivia’s official capital. Yep, that’s right. It’s not La Paz – even though the latter is the seat of government. A bit confusing, I know, but at least they’ve come to an agreement – they had a civil war about this issue once. In fact, depending on whether you talk to someone from Sucre or from La Paz, you might
After staying in La Paz for a few days, I continued my Bolivia travels by visiting Copacabana on the shore of Lake Titicaca. I didn’t know it yet, but this little town near the Peruvian border would prove exactly what I needed after that stressful week in La Paz. Moreover, it makes for the perfect introvert travel destination. Here’s why. Far away
