I’ve never felt as isolated as I did in the Peruvian desert.
In “To the ends of the earth in Peru“, an article I recently did for Travel and Escape, I talk about my crazy dune buggy journey from the desert outside Nazca to the Pacific coast. We were in a desolate place – it felt like we were on the moon – but it was magnificent.
We saw the impressive indigenous condor, barking sea lions, and watch as the landscape made a dramatic and sudden transition from desert to aggressive, rocky cliffs, beaten by the crashing waves of the Pacific.
It was like nothing I’d ever experienced before, and something I’ve not been able to duplicate since. It was truly amazing.
