After a short visit to the floating islands we took the motorboat onward to the island of Taquile. This island was naturally formed, therefore not floating on reeds, but was a magical beauty in its own. We hiked up a beautiful walkway to an outdoor restaurant where we ate trout, quinoa soup, beet salad, bread, and tea; all while overlooking beautiful Lake Titticaca. Afterwards we participated in traditional dances with the family and enjoyed the views.
As we traveled onward we were continuously greeted with amazing views and wonderful local children who sold us beautifully handmade bracelets, hats, and belts (because clearly if there is one thing Diana and I know how to do best it’s shop).
We headed back to the mainland, and arrived around 5pm, where we quickly caught a cab to our hotel, which was actually a restored boat from the 1800s.
