I was so excited to get to Bolivia, as it was a country I had always dreamed of visiting since I was a kid. It has such a diverse array of landscapes, lush mountain ranges through the Andes, barren windswept deserts and of course the famous Uyuni Salt Flats. I would also meet up with another adventure rider Chris, whom I met on the Stahlratte crossing the Darien Gap.

The three major features of this part of my adventure were Lap Paz the capital which is situated inside a canyon that is both grand and intimidating. I would also travel the Death Road or locally known as North Yungas Road, historically one of the most dangerous roads in the world. Finally the last major part of this country I would experience was the Uyuni Salt Flats and incredible landscape that I will not forget anytime soon.

Thankfully there was little to no traffic on this road as it is the northernmost border town from Peru to Bolivia.
