Hey guys! Kelley is headed to Bolivia this winter to see Salar De Uyuni. Dates are February 4-12. It's a pretty spontaneous trip as she doesn't plan on booking the actual tour until the day before (makes it cheaper).
She does, however, have the flights planned out. She'll also be staying in hostels. She wanted to post this up to see if anyone else would like to join her on this "fly by the seat of your pants" type of travel. As of now, it's just her going.
To give you a rough estimate of the costs: $1000 roundtrip flight, $150 3day 4 night tour depending on amount of people signing up together, hostels are $10/night, and food you'll never spend more than around $5 a meal.
Additionally, please note there is a $160 tourist visa (easiest if done in advance) and there may be vaccinations that need to be purchased before flying to South America. If anyone is interested, please RSVP and reach out to Kelley on here directly as she is Event Host for this trip.
