We left Puno by bus with the aim of travelling to La Paz by a round-about route which included a trip on Lake Titicaca and a visit to Island of the Sun. The trip was good but given another chance we would organise it somewhat differently, at considerably less cost.

Cusco was a delight but everyone has to move on. We were heading for Bolivia so were travelling via Puno and Lake Titicaca. There is a luxury train from Cusco to Puno and you can also travel by road. We took the road option and thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Trying to stay grounded flying early morning from the altitude Machu Picchu to the jungles of the Amazon was challenging. But the sharp contrast and hightlights were justified.
