Waiting for the boat for Ballestas Islands

Tired and excited in our gorgeous life jackets!

Downing shots of Pisco (sour etc.)

Chilling before sandboarding (note the dunes in the background)

Sarah taking the wiser option !

Overlooking the Oasis !


Had to get up early today (6am) for a trip to Ballestas islands. 20 of us on a speedboat and the trip took about 2 hours. We saw sealions, penguins, thousands of other birds and dolphins. I got crapped on !

Had late breakfast at the harbour (banana pancakes) then headed off for a 1 hour journey to massive sandunes (an oasis). Here we had an amazing sand-buggy journy up and down huge sandunes (7 of us in a buggy) then stopped off for 3 sand-boarding sessions down huge dunes!

Then we had late lunch and headed off for a 2 hour bus journey to Nazca (where tomorrow we will see The Nazca Lines). Saw and felt our first sunshine today (thank god) but apparently it gets hotter the more inland you go which is what we are doing now. About to have a meeting with the group now to discuss tomorrows plans.

Love to you all and hope everything is ok back home.

Adios !!
