LEGACY SHOW: Expedition to Bolivia
This broadcast is a favorite legacy show that we produced under our old name Travel’n On and before rebranding as WORLD FOOTPRINTS.
Join Tonya and Ian as they take you on an exciting adventure with author and explorer Col. John Blashford Snell who will talk about his upcoming expedition to Bolivia and his work with the Just A Drop Foundation. John is a legendary explorer who has traveled to all corners of the earth to leave positive footprints and share remote places with the world.
John’s experience- “We meet in La Paz, the capital of Bolivia, and go to Tiahuanaco, a fabled Andean city, as well as one of the world’s highest navigable lakes at 12,675 feet. Then we’ll take a plane to Rurrenabaque, an old trading center known as the “Gateway to the Amazon,” and travel by local canoe to Tres Hermanos to supervise the project’s completion, explore archaeological sites, and employ camera traps to observe wildlife.”
