[S2 – Eps. 70] I have to leave my motorcycle behind…

[S2 – Eps. 70] I have to leave my motorcycle behind…


Hello! Good afternoon!
I was at the place but I didn’t find anybody and my shoes broke… Alright.. Good morning Internet! It is 7:00
in the morning and welcome back to the channel. I’m doing a slightly different
intro, but that is just because I’m a little bit late.. and I have a boat to catch! I’m
now in Puno in Peru, right at Lake Titicaca and my plan is to visit one of
the islands on lake Titicaca, called: Taquile, not tequila, but Taquile.. and I’m
catching a boat to there. Yesterday I went to the ticket office, and I asked
them: can I bring Dhanno on the boat and they told me that it’s never been done before but it is possible. So let’s see, because I think these boats are tiny! We’ll see
if Dhanno fits on a boat. If not, I have to go for plan B. I have a plan B, kind of..
but that Plan B means that I cannot catch the boat today then, but let’s find
out.. So I’m now just riding to the port of Puno and the weather doesn’t
really look so good either.. But okay, most likely I will be on the
boats most of the day. It’s a long ride, it’s about four hours, I
think, on the boat. Because yesterday when I went to buy the ticket, I
was walking, so I didn’t bring Dhanno with me and I just showed a picture, and
they were like: yeah, yeah it’s possible.. Good morning. Come on in my friend, for information on Taquile island. Yes, yesterday I already bought my ticket.. -Ah you already bought it? – I already spoke with the captain And he told me I can bring my motorcycle Where is the captain now? Now he is the captain You are the captain? – Yes Okay let’s go. – Yes? Okay! I can take this off.. Where do I go? To the end? Hmmm.. right
I have no idea how they’re thinking to.. get Dhanno on board Here… This one? Weight? 200 200 kilos? What type of engine? 400 cc Which boat? The second.. Not possible? Why do you want to take it? Can’t you leave it here? I don’t have a place to.. We have a place.. of the community We, the community of Taquile, have a place. You can leave it there.. Is it safe? Yes, 100% safe Is it nearby? – Yes, it’s close from here Can I put my motorcycle there and come back to catch the boat? Yes, yes. -Yes, is there enough time? Can you show me..? Let’s go You can take your luggage off.. your backpack Do you want to sit? – Yes, yes Is this possible? Yes Where do I go? Straight? To the left? – Yes, over there Here? So I only just realized that Peru is not
in the same time zone as Bolivia.. Completely didn’t think about that, so
basically that means that I rocked up an hour early.. So it’s super early now! Look what I see over there! Now, that is another bucket dredger. That’s the second one in South
America. Remember that I saw one in Patagonia. And they also have a bucket
dredger here, it’s quite cool. Anyway kind of a shame that I have to
leave Dhanno behind, but I was already thinking.. I was already
doubting that I could bring her.. and now when I saw the boat, I was like: no way. No way! So these boats to the islands are run by the indigenous community so the
captain is from Island Taquile, where I’m going to, and it’s a different captain
then I expected, but he said that they have to be here at 5:30 in the
morning, and if they are only 10 minutes late, they lose their turn and then the
next one can can go. So on average each man of the community can one time per month work on the boat to the islands.. so they have kind of like a rotational
schedule So I’m now on one of the floating islands, all these islands are made of reed What is this called in Spanish? There are 90 floating islands here, this
is one of them and on this particular island there’s six families living here. I believe this is the house of the president, so each of the islands has his
own president. And to build an island like this, it takes about a year, a year
and a half, and then it will last for 30 years and then they build a new island.
They use 11 different anchors to keep the island on this position because
otherwise it’s gonna float all over the lake. So these islands are on Lake
Titicaca. I should say Titicaca, it’s not Titicaca but Titicaca. And Titi means Puma and
Caca means grey, so the lake means grey Puma, and it’s the biggest lake in South
America. And it’s interesting to see how some of these methods are still really
traditional but at the same time they have some really modern equipment like
these solar panels So I think it’s pretty amazing that they
now have electricity via these solar panels and each Island has these lookouts, these
ones.. and they told me that they use these lookouts to kind of peek at the
neighboring islands. So the people here speak Aymara and that is the same language as the majority of the people that live in La Paz speak. It’s slightly different accent but they can understand the
people of Bolivia that speak Aymara and then they also speak Quechua and they
also speak Spanish.. so they’re quite multilingual here So I just got dropped off by the boat, see? So I’m now on Taquile island, and now I
have to walk to my accommodation and I kind of look like a donkey See? I have to carry all my gear and my helmet and I think I have to get up this hill here.. yeah bringing Dhanno would have been
really impossible, impossible.. I don’t think I would have been able to get her
off here anyway.. so walking it is! I’m taking a small break. I’m sweating like a maniac! Oh this is tough, I’m dragging all of this stuff with me, and I just climbed
all the way up the hill from down there So that was a lot of steps. I think now
I have to walk that way, I think.. I was kind of hoping that the owner of the
guesthouse was coming to meet me so he could carry some bags, but there’s
nobody, so I have to carry all my stuff.. not so easy.. so this is the place where I’m staying
it is super beautiful here Let’s go Hello! Good afternoon! I was at the plaza but I didn’t find anybody and my shoes broke.. You were waiting for me in another place? Yes, I spoke with the captain and he told me you would be there The captain tells me that I have to get off here It’s okay.. what is your name? Noraly.. beautiful name! -Thank you We are going to walk a little? If you can.. My shoe is broken.. Do you have other shoes? – Yes Yes, yes, go with her So something went wrong.. the father of
Hector was waiting for me at the Plaza but the captain of the boat apparently
dropped me off somewhere else So there was a bit of a misunderstanding so, it’s all good.. and now Hector’s wife is gonna take me
to the Plaza, so From which country? – The Netherlands So you are traveling by motorbike? – Yes, yes You were born here? – Yes we were born here And you travel a lot to Puno? No, only once per month Sometimes twice per month, that’s it To buy things, that’s all.. -Yes to buy things Is there a supermarket here? No, we get things on Fridays and Sundays Ah, goods arrive with boats? Yes.. here comes Hector He is coming to the beach Hector is in this… – Yes It’s your boat? – Yes, it’s ours.. it’s small We use it to catch small fishes there That’s why we have it And also when we have friends that cannot walk, we can take them to the other island too Amantani? – Yes, Amantani.. we get there by boat Come here Can he see it? – Yes.. no, I don’t think so, no.. Hello Let’s go for a ride! Okay, I’ll see you later then! -Yes Thank you, bye! So they’ve now dropped me off at another part of the island And now I’m just gonna have a nice afternoon walk, back to their house, which is nice see something of the island And I’m back, so that was it for today. I
really hope you like this video, if you did, please give me a big thumbs up and

  1. Dear all.. please note this video was recorded some time ago! The situation in Peru changed rapidly and drastically and I’ve been in mandatory lockdown for 9 days now. When I recorded this video, the borders of Peru were still open for a few days, there were very few Covid-19 cases in Peru and life was still going as normal, like in most parts in the world. After 9 days of lockdown there are still no cases reported in the entire province in Peru where I am now. Let’s try to enjoy this ‘normal’ travel video in these times of fear and distress. It’s the last one – things changed very fast from the next video onwards. Stay safe all of you and take care of each other..

  2. In the West we hear stories of all the bad things…. but Noraly is showing us all just how wonderful people really are… What an amazing video this is… :-))) xx

  3. Thank you Noraly, and you also take great care of yourself, we are thinking of you, stay safe and well young Lady. Dx

  4. If my old primary school teacher of 60 yrs ago was correct Lake Titicaca is the highest lake in the world at 16000 ft , thank you Itchy Boots for showing it to us .

  5. Amazing beauty without question. The people are so very nice and trusting. I'm sure that they enjoyed your visit too. Thanks for sharing.

  6. What a video, a place of peace and tranquility, and what a story..the floating islands, the island itself. These are excellent engaging stories…and yes, I am sure the storyline changes, just keep us as informed as possible. But most of all protect yourself and stay safe.

  7. Noraly, I'd just like to comment on how wonderfully your videos have evolved. Although I love your "standard" videos: wake up/breakfast report/plans & map/ride/arrive/show room/say thanks & thumbs up…I really like that you are more and more showing the sites you're seeing and sharing what you've learned. Thank you!!

  8. One of your most beautiful videos. Hope Dhanno is alright when you return. Wonderful scenery. – thank you.

  9. You had me going too.. what with the world a different place right now I imagined you were heading back to Holland… and I hope that doesn't happen. See you on the next one..👍

  10. Sweet blue eyes it 's a beautifull video i know in peru with virus de goberment come to strong people can' t walk on street so please be carefull and traid to find a nice place and wait there until chance the tings

  11. The island and their lifestyle brings us back in time. I have only seen such drawings in fairy tale books. You are lucky. Take care.

  12. We are all with you in spirit and circumstance. Please be safe. Let us know where you are and when you are able to move about safely? PS: I loved the scenery in this video.

  13. Cuidate mucho sobretodo, eres una gran viajera!!
    Espero verte en Catalunya cuando todo termine!!
    Se ve que eres una gran persona!!
    Cuidate!!

  14. Didn’t know you were such an athlete Noraly. Zumba and hill walking…..good drills. Dhano needed a wee rest anyway. 😂 Stay safe.👍😀

  15. Hi Noraly, the scenery on the island is beautiful,take your time getting bk to traveling,as everywhere as you know is not the best at the moment,stay safe as always.👍

  16. Me gustó mucho tu video. Ahora te escribo en Español porque lo entiendes bien. Tienes una curiosidad insaciable. He visto todos tus videos de este viaje, y siempre espero el siguiente VIDEO con grandes expectativas. Los paisajes que nos has mostrado son mas que espectaculares.
    Eres una mujer valiente pero que sabe cuidarse y no toma riesgos exagerados, por lo cual considero que tu viaje terminará bien, pero de todas formas tienes que cuidarte mucho. No se que planes tengas para visitar México, pero mucho me gustaría mostrarte algunas cosas que considero pueden ser de tu gran interés por las piedras y los estratos geológicos. Me gustaría llevarte al Servicio Sismológico Nacional (UNAM), donde se monitorea toda la costa y se generan las alertas sísmicas. Este fue el primer sistema de alerta sísmica bien desarrollado, y es impresionante que ni siquiera California tiene algo similar. Recuerda que la gran Tenochtitlan se construyó sobre un lago. T
    Yo estudié física, y mi primer interés fue la geofísica. En aquellos ayeres, me tocó ir a cambiar los tambores de papel que estaban en los sismógrafos del los 80 y 90. HOy día me dedico a la robótica y la maquinaria industrial.

    SALUDOS DESDE MÉXICO.

  17. I've followed all 70 episodes as they have been uploaded and I don't think I've thanked you yet. My apologies. Please now accept my gratitude for the education, insight, inspiration, beauty and fun you have brought to me. Many many thanks Noraly x

  18. I had never heard of those floating islands before, as they say every day is a school day. What a beautiful place to stay over though. Difficult times now indeed Noraly, I hope you are comfortable and with everything you need. Keep safe and best wishes…

  19. Noraly – Stay safe, so take great care. I can't see how you can possibly complete your trip now, although we all will miss your wonderful episodes. Time to head back home, I think. Get back to your loved ones – who must be very worried about you. You are an incredible person, and very brave, but time now to get back to safety.

  20. This island was your temporary bit of Paradise Noraly. The whole world is being shut down slowly as the virus proliferates. Hope things will improve for uou.
    Love. Trinidad & Tobago.

  21. Hola Noraly. Un saludo desde Colombia, esperando que pases por mi país para saludarte. Eres una motivación para todos nosotros que queremos salir a recorrer nuestra tierra. Muchos saludos, cuídate y te esperamos.

  22. Fantastic, beautiful, informative, entertaining and the second Bucket Dredger in South America. Definitely worth being in the wrong time zone, that made me laugh, a real pick me up. Stay safe. Alan.

  23. Noraly, Your pleasant demeanor, spirit of adventure and outstanding production skills have kept me from going nuts in this crazy, crazy time. You are a gift to all of us who think of you as our travel agent and/or who live vicariously through your beautiful eyes!!! By the way, if you have a chance, have the folks who speak Cachawa (not even close in spelling) sing for you. Have you seen their alphabet? When the sing, close your eyes and you will think you are in China.. such a strange language, along with Armaya.

  24. Those dudes with the red hat's were some cool chilled out cats. All those folks were cool nobody trippin' trying to be a big dog nice welcoming ☯️

  25. I guess you take it for granted that Duno carries those bags for you effortlessly! How quickly we find out how hard our transport works for us.

  26. Wow, how thoughtful and wonderful that you do not rush past so much culture, places and especially the great people on your way north, thank you. You are an excellent International Ambassador!!!

  27. What a wonderful panoramic video using your drone. Good job editing and making the video's interesting. Beautiful place. Be safe.

  28. Ca fait du bien de voir ca cette vidéo, car nous sommes confinés dans la maison, au Québec.Tank you Noraly for your beautiful pictures.The lake Titicaca is very magic place.

  29. Thank you for the breathtaking view of this beautiful place. Your friendly and warm nature is always an asset in these days. Stay safe and take care of yourself!

  30. Stunning!!!.. Lakescap… Wow!!! Your video is a pallet of fillings and colors. They truly break my heart but you must return safili soon to Nederland, it's the reverse of the coin. Stay safe. AC✨✨✨✨

  31. Hi, just a quick question what’s the name of the soundtrack when you fly the drone? Thanks, stay safe! All the best from Austria

  32. Hola Noraly como veo que entiendes y hablas Español aprovecho para decirte que te admiro muchisimo,, tus videos son interesantes, a veces me haces reir, hoy por ejemplo has dicho q re ves como un burro, ja ja ja, es un bonito lugar lo de las islas, disfruta tú que puedes, solo ten cuidado del coronavirus, hasta la prxima´.

  33. Hey Noraly, climbing that hill while carrying all your gears can be a kind of high-altitude training session that you've been planning to have in La Paz?

    Thanks for everything.

  34. شكرا لك على الترجمة إلى اللغة العربية…. نحن نشاهدك من المملكة العربية السعودية

  35. A lovely video of a unique part of the world.I hope life is not too tough for you. It's boring here in Scotland.

  36. I want to thank you for showing us such wonderful places in the world that, many of us, didn't even dream of existing. A million thanks, you´re a brave and generous human being!

  37. Je vermaakt je prima zo te zien. Ik bewonder iedere keer hoe makkelijk je contact maakt met alle mensen die je ontmoet. Dit is mede te danken aan jou geweldige talen kennis. En jou uitstraling en je vriendelijke glimlach. Hele mooie beelden zeker van die drijvende eilenden. Het vlot van Thor Hyerdhal?? was ook door die eiland bewoners gebouwd. Heel mooi om dit allemaal te zien. Noraly bedankt voor deze mooi beelden. Thanks 😉 😉

  38. Been out doing deliveroo, finished 2100 hrs, its like a ghost town out there. Cup of tea, some biscuits and a bit of itchy boots.
