Our journey has now taken us to the world’s largest salt flats deep in the southern Andes of Bolivia. This region is the epitome of breathtaking sights. There’s everything from hot springs to colored lagoons to petrified coral. There’s even a forest made of humongous, salt grown cactuses!
Today, Alan and I attempted to explore Cajas National Park – I say “attempted” because we actually ended up in the wrong place because of a misunderstanding with the taxi driver. We asked him to take us to “Cajas”, which, it turns out, is different to Cajas National Park! Where we ended up kind of looked like a national park, and it only took us five hours to realize we weren’t where we wanted to be…
I took this picture when we were taking a boat ride from Belize City to Caye Caulker (pronounced Key Cawker). It was last year late August/ early September 2014 while we were backpacking throughout Central America. Some of our friends were getting married in Mexico so we started our journey in Costa Rica then went up to Nicaragua, then to Honduras, then to Guatemala, then to Belize and ended in Mexico. We didn’t spend too much time on this trip as I was still working in the corporate world and only had less than two weeks paid vacation. This is one of the most calming and beautiful pictures I have ever taken. The boat ride wasn’t too calm as we were on a smaller boat that took us to the island.
