Hi, I’m Sara, founder and writer at Travel Continuum, where I write about my global travel experiences, with a special passion for the stars and sustainability. I believe in the power of education through travel, and here I share the tales and tips that I find interesting and inspiring. I hope that you do too.

  1. What an incredible array of natural resources, each more beautiful than the last. Truly an otherworldly location I’d love to find myself in one day! Great photos.

      Thank you Alison! Once will never be enough for me when it comes to Bolivia, and I’m aching to go back. Glad I’m inspiring others to consider it too 🙂

  2. I must admit I didn’t consider Bolivia on my big South American trip some years ago, but now I’m very keen to go, these landscapes are absolutely epic, so dramatic and other-worldly – and I love the Vicuñas too.

      They are adorable, aren’t they? I hardly know where to start with this incredible country; Amazonian jungle, Andean highlands, the (in)famous Death Road, masses of pre-Columbian sites, Lake Titicaca, the ‘badlands’ of Tupiza, 2 capital cities (one of them the highest in the world), the largest proportion of indigenous people in latin america and even a small part of the Pantanal wetlands. Have you sussed yet how much I love Bolivia?!

    So true, it is often missed – so much so that I didn’t know there was such varied scenery. People swing by for the salt flats (and those photos are always amazing) but there is so much more, and it is beautiful!

    • Sara Dobak says:

      It is indeed, Anna – for me it would be criminal to miss out on Eduardo Avaroa. It complements the Salar de Uyuni so perfectly and I wholeheartedly encourage everyone to keep a couple of extra days back for it.

  4. Such unique scenery – it looks like another planet. Fabulous colours and such interesting geology. And I would never have known flamingos were so hardy, think it must be those skinny legs that make them look fragile!

    • Sara Dobak says:

      I’d long dreamed of visitng Bolivia, especially this part of it, and it remains one of my most special places. Perhaps I was a flamingo in a former life!

  5. Such fascinating and beautiful landscapes, weird rock formations, flamingoes and strange green things that do indeed look like they are about to come to life and engulf you! Love your photos and I’d dearly love to see it all for myself one day.

      Thank you! Next time I’ll aim to stay longer, despite the harsh environment, because it is SO worth it…and I’m deteremined there WILL be a next time!
