The Long Road to Sucre

Our Epic Journey

Due to Nae’s time limit, we were keen to reach Bolivia as quickly as possible, so we set off from Buenos Aires very early one morning, on a 24 hour train which would cross the country and bring us closer to the border, and which cost us approximately £2.50. 1,843 more words

Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

For four days in March, I toured the Salt Flats with Emily, Josephina (cook), Jaime (driver and aspiring Dakar driver), and an Israeli couple. Lost driving in a lunar landscape over 4000m and sometimes 5000m, our chins were often dirty from the fall as we soaked in the alien landscape, a highlight of any South America trip.
