For a less frightening adventure, head to Bolivia to take pictures at what is known as the world’s largest mirror. Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia has the largest salt flats in the world, and when the landscape is covered by a thin layer of water, the surface turns reflective. This creates a beautiful mirror that reflects the skyline. This is a photo opportunity of a lifetime, guaranteed to make your birthday the most unique one yet! Lake Assal in Djibouti is also pretty salty, see our itinerary here.
