This wasn't on the syllabus...

While I attempt to be adventurous, I tend to stray away from planning wild activities. I am much more of a 'relax and chill' type when on vacation. When presented with an opportunity, however, I do take advantage and seize the day. In this case, days. Our last side trip was action-packed with adventure that I would never go out of my way to try. At least not before this maymester. I am glad that Profe planned these activities for us because they were hella fun but also because I think it was a great way to close out a great month. Nando provided us with unforgettable experiences.

From the sandboarding in the desert that left me with 4 big bruises and many potential desktop backgrounds
to the boat ride in the Pacific that allowed me to see penguins, sea lions, and dolphins in the wild

and even the romantic yet laborious leg day on the "oasis" with dad
After those two days, I think that I will try to venture into things that seem extreme. Even though I am not a swimmer and am terrified of drowning, white water rafting was possibly one of the best experiences of my life. The dune buggy roller coaster was so much fun and looking back, I'm surprised I didn't scream more. ATVing with cows at face-level was just madness. Ask Conor. I can honestly say that this maymester has made me reconsider vacations. I want to try everything because I now know of the fun I am missing out on. So thank you Nando, Profe, and Aventuras Peruanas. You have changed my life.
Sun setting on my Peru adventures.
