My two-month journey through Peru was filled with so many moments of joy, adventure, new experience, and excitement, that sometimes it is hard to pull out a particularly wonderful moment. However without a doubt one of the highlights of this trip was my visit to Huacachina. A desert oasis, Huacachina is surrounded by sand dunes on all sides, towering so high above as to cast shadows over the little city. Sand buggies are the vehicle of necessity out here, and sand boarding is the exercise (and leisure) of choice.
There are some places in the world that will always hold a special place in my heart. Florence taught me how to sit for hours in cafes and developed my love for pasta at all hours of the day (or night!) Bangkok took away my fear of foreign cultures and food, and Huacachina gave me a totally new perspective on my place in the world.
