Fantasies of a Hopeless Wanderer

Tripoto

Every traveler have their dream destinations one she or he desires to visit some day. While some prefer to call them bucket list, some - like me- prefer to call them fantasies. Fantasies; some common destinations some outrageous places most will not even dream to visit. Here are my dist of "Fantasies"...

Reflections of Life

There is nothing perfect in this world. A myth that is broken once you visit the Salar de Uyuni; the world famous salt flats of Bolivia. The salt flats form the world's largest natural mirror, when a thin film of water gathers on a vast plain of salt deposits creating a perfect reflection.
