For a long time, I’ve been longing to visit the highest navigable lake in the world, the famous Lake Titicaca located between Peru and Bolivia. At 3856 metres above sea level, this lake is said to be bigger than Switzerland! During our world trip (Orange Spots on Tour) in 2016, we finally took off on a breathtaking tour to the Uros Floating Islands at Lake Titicaca. Also, we enjoyed a nice hike on the island of Taquile. Enjoy the ashtonishing views, breathtaking landscapes and the colorful clothing of the Uros people living on this immense lake!

Opposite to Trapani lies the largest of the Egadi Islands: Favigana. You can travel by boat and it’s fantastic for people who love nature, cycling and eating fresh (tuna) fish!
Palermo, the capital of Sicily is quite a rough and chaotic city yet it’s worth to explore its historical buildings and experience the vivid streets. Palermo lies in between two stunning little fishermen towns that I absolutely loved to visit! Catellamare del Golfo (left from Palermo) has one of the most breathtaking views on the shore, colorful boats and mountains. Right from Palermo lies Cefalù, another fisherman town with a beautiful cathedral, charming streets and tasty restaurants. Sicily simply has it all…
