Heading back to Puno after enjoying a homestay experience with locals on the Uros Floating Islands. We learned more about their daily way of life and even went fishing and made handicrafts with them😍

Have you ever heard about pink salt?!?
Well.. The pink salt is extracted only from 4 places in the world and one is Maras, and the more than 3,000 pools are worked by the families of the town.
In the distance, and depending on the time of day, the thousands of white terraces of the Salinas de Maras show incredible shades that have been captured by the best lenses of photograph lovers around the world📸

Made our way to Peru via DFW with a way too fun Segway tour. Landed in Lima for a food tour that truly introduced us to the culture we were joining! Found out jumping is prohibited at Machu Picchu and climbed to the top (~8,000 ft elevation) of Huayana Picchu! The next day we confidently took on Rainbow Mountain (which the girls ended up riding horses about half way), but made it to the 16,000ft tip for breathtaking views! Made friends with llamas, alpacas, and sheep. Boated around Lake Titicaca learning about the different cultures! And then.... #dfw#peru#food#machupicchu#huaynapicchu#rainbowmountain#animalfriends#laketiticaca#vacation#didwesleep

There she stands, strong and proud in all of her sapphire-azure beauty, sometimes deep in solitude, sometimes admired for her quiet determination, sometimes considered aloof... Yet she is neither ever alone, nor unyielding, for deep in her waters she is always being moved and embraced by the island of the sun on one side, and the island of the moon on the other... #isladelsol#titicaca#isladelaluna#solitude
Exploring Isla del Sol in Lake Titicaca, the largest lake in South America and the highest navigable body of water in the world (thanks for that info @lonelyplanet- I’ve never even seen the word ‘navigable’ before 😳)
