Travel lust: Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

One travels to Bolivia to visit this -

One of my travel regrets was choosing Buenos Aires over Bolivia, specifically Salar de Uyuni. It wasn't that I did not have a good time in Argentina but merely because I have always wanted to visit the world largest salt flat. Why didn't I go? I was cash-strapped and flying to Buenos Aires from Sydney was much easier than flying to La Paz and then catching a bus to one town before hopping onto a train to another town before joining the local tour to the salt flat. Quite a hassle. Plus a friend mentioned she boarded a bus that used the infamous Death Road aka Yungas Road (see here for details) which of course freaked my parents out.

So I hereby announce that I will somehow find a way to visit Salar de Uyuni (and Machu Pichu) within the next 5years. Good enough? The problem I face is finding a travel companion - so far my friends think I'm insane and would rather go to places with proper toilet plumbing. But I'm not brave enough to head to South America alone. Worst case scenario, persuading/black-mailing brother to come along - he's taking Spanish at uni so at least he will, hopefully, be of some use.

Is there anywhere you would like to go? Somewhere foreign that has been on top of your dream list?

How beautiful! I hope you get to go, and that you'll bring back (and post!) photos like this :) On the top of my travel list: Paris, Morocco, Thailand. Really, I'd go anywhere, though :)

Machu Pichu is definitely at the top of my dream travel list. I'd love to check out Bolivia too! Honestly, there aren't too many places I wouldn't travel to, though. There's so much awesomeness and beauty in the world - I wish I could see it all.
