'Changing Landscapes Bolivia' is an 8 part television series that follows landscape artist Dominik Modlinski, and travel writer Scott Wilson on a recent six week motorcycle trip through Bolivia.
In the autumn of 2014 Scott Wilson and Dominik Modlinski traveled to Bolivia and Peru. For six weeks they rode their motorcycles on asphalt, gravel and salt as they crossed the Altiplano and the Andes. When their bikes weren't up to the task they traded them in for hiking boots, gumboots and canoes as they explored the Isla del Sol, the Potosi silver mines, and the Amazon basin. Why such an adventure? So they could record changing landscapes, Dominik with his painting gear and oil on canvas, and Scott with the film camera. From folksy villages to a national election, dodgy river crossings to 'Cafe con Leche,' and wild pigs to screaming Macaws, Bolivia served up one treat after another. Join them as they ride across Bolivia.
