There is nothing worse than feeling disappointed when you discover what you saw online is not the same in real life. No, I’m not talking online dating. I’m talking about going to Salar de Uyuni only to find out there is no mirror effect!
Our Bolivian itinerary on our around the world trip had us moving from the bustling, loud, polluted city of La Paz to the peaceful town of Copacabana, Bolivia. We found serenity on Lake Titicaca as well as plenty of things to do; our time there was a perfect mix of hiking, immersing ourselves in local culture, and napping in hammocks.

Finally, we made it to the world's largest salt flats- the Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia! Our excitement could not be contained as we watched the sun rise over the vast plain of salt that is almost as large as some small European countries.
With only a few mountains off in the distance, and an endless field of salt at our feet, we finally understood why the Uyuni salt flats draws in so many visitors each year.
It is unlike any place we've ever visited.
Armed with our two Roaming Gnomes, a toy llama, and a bottle of Pisco, we were quite excited to get out into the middle of it all and take some hilarious forced perspective photos.
After starting, we quickly noticed an issue. Our photos were awful!
The clock was ticking on our time in the salt flats, and we had to figure out a solution fast.
