Arriving in Huacachina to a warm handshake from my French friend Julien, we booked the sand boarding and buggy ride. Beforehand we decided to climb a dune with Marco (Austria), concentrating on not being blown down the dune with an intense, hot walk along the ridge we arrived at the top with a great view of the only oasis in South America.

The afternoon held an adrenaline pumping stomach in your mouth buggy ride traversing the dunes at a high pace, I snowboarded down a couple of dunes and broke the board! A big chunk dropped off the bottom so I opted for the body boarding, happy with the switch though, the body boarding provided a lot more speed and put your face 5 cm from the sand.
Our guide decided it would be a great idea to knock herself out on the board I paced it out and she flew through the air for eleven metres! We had to hide behind the buggy so we could commence laughing until tears appeared!

Met Leonie and a few others so we polished off a few glasses of wine.
