So after a 20 hour coach jorney which wasn't so bad due to us having daddy chairs fully reclining we arvived at ica a place we got told was meant to be paradise. As we left the coach we thought, well we must have got on the wrong bus.
We didn't have a hostel booked once again we thought we will get there and go with the flow. The only problem there wasn't a hostel in sight. We decided to find a hostel on the net and found the oasis every one was talking about we flagged down a cab/got shouted at by hundreds of cabbys taxi taxi taxi beep beep beep all fighting for us to get in their taxis.
Once we arrived we were both thrown back by where we were this little oasis in the middle of three massive sand dunes. With the town set around the oasis with palm trees was amazing. We started to walk down the road and found a nice hostel which we checked in to.
That night we had a BBQ which was nice and meet a Jules a school teacher and decided to have a few drinks of RUM (this was because it was free for 2 hours). Lynsey tought I had gone missing in this mini club to find out I was in the DJ box playing some tunes. The night turned into a blur.
Next morning lynsey took an hour to get me up (Hangover). I recapped on the night I thought I only had 3 large beers and 2 vodkas and coke why am I feeling like this. It was at this point lynsey went what about the rum . . . . . . hummmmm the rum forgot about that.
We decided to move hostels because we found a cheaper one across the road with a better pool and more chilled out after we checked in we went to a bar called bananas for a much needed brunch. When we were down there we were looking over the oasis and saw a long neck turtle which at first I fort was a pump . . . .
That afternoon we went sand boarding this involves going up massive sand dunes on a buggy and getting on a board and flying back down the hill as fast as possible. When we got to the first hill I jumped on the board on my stomach and went straight down the hill at this point lynsey was cursing me because she wanted me to encourage her to go down bit late due to me being at the bottom. After five minuets I saw lynsey flying down the sand dune and once getting to the bottom had the biggest smile on her face after the first one we was flying down them as they got bigger and bigger. Finally we got to the last one of the day which was 3 drops 2 small which lead to the last one which from the top you could not see how big it was all it looked like was a cliff edge. so me being the nice boyfriend. Went first to test it out , this wasn't the best idea because you couldn't see if I was ok at the bottom. This wasn't good for lynsey especially due to the instructor saying your boyfriend didn't make it bye pushing lynsey down. When we went down the first 2 all we was thinking was please don't be steep please . . . then as we went over the top we realised that it was worst than we both thought it was MASSIVE but their was no bailing out. Once we both were at the bottom we both hugged each other and was so happy.
We then went to watch the sun set which was amazing and then headed back for a earlish night.
We decided to stay an extra night due to both falling in love with the place and just chilled out for the day by the pool.
Today we heading to Paracas on a hour coach trip . . . . . . .
