I have always longed to see the world. South America is full of gorgeous mountains, waterfalls, diverse foods, amazing city skylines, and an incredible history. This continent just south of us holds many of our world's most beautiful gems. Being able to see any of these places would be a worthwhile trip for anyone. Whether you want to eat street food in Colombia, take a picture at the salt flats in Bolivia, or any other of the beautiful cities in South America has something for everyone.

For the photographers of the group, this is the best destination to see. The salt flats reflect the light and demonstrate nature's true beauty. The largest flat is named Salar de Uyuni located in the southwest corner of Bolivia near the Andes Mountains. While this trip does take a bit of a journey to reach it is worth it!!!
