    January 13 in Peru โ‹… โ›… 29 ยฐC

    In the afternoon in Huacachina we decided to explore the dunes of the surrounding desert (highest sand dunes in the world... 1176m high!! ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜ฎ) by dune buggy tour and included we also got to ride the dunes via sandboard! I have to say that I didn't think I had the guts for this tour, zach had to convince me otherwise... As many others we met also rated this trip and not to miss!

In parts we stopped for view points of the surrounding dunes and towns, then back in for more crazy driving lol... then it came to the sandboarding! So we started off boarding down small slopes, and after the 3 slopes we thought oh not so bad.. Not too scary! Well I can tell you the biggest drops we're to come... And they were huge ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ณ it took us awhile to work up to them (not zach as he seems to have no fear ๐Ÿ˜) ... But in the end we just went for it and loved it (even though we were covered head to toe in sand... And lots of sand burns๐Ÿ˜‚. The views were amazing, and as it hit sunset on the way back the driver turned crazier (maybe some werewolf vibe going on... Had to get us back before full moon ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ˜‚) but it made it all the better and end to an amazing trip ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒ….Read more
