Next stop is Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat, and it can only be described as breath-taking.

After taking some time to see how the locals farm the salt by creating pyramids allowing the salt to dry out and then packing into plastic bags for sale, we headed off Incahuasi Island in the middle of the salt flatsĀ to look at some awesome cactus and have some lunch.

It was a really good hike around the island, looking out across the salt flats is amazing, a dazzling ocean of white as far as you can see.

Driving across the salt was great, full speed, iPod connected to the stereo and turned up; It was a bit like living a music video and I don’t think we will be forgetting the soundtrack anytime soon.
