Jacada Traveller Photo Journal: Peru and Bolivia

One of Jacada’s travellers, Hawra, recently went on an amazing journey through Peru and Bolivia. She met with Andean communities, learning about their way of life, explored ancient ruins in some of the most remote areas of Peru, and experienced the outstanding landscapes in Bolivia. These are just a selection of her favourite memories of the trip. For more photos, find Hawra on Instagram.
