If you know anything about Huacachina, you’ll think sand dunes. Sand dunes after sand dunes after sand dunes. Originally, Peruvians believed that the waters had healing powers and would use the waters to heal their bodies. These days, it’s mostly for tourists to go and sand buggy. If you’ve got the time, I do recommend it.
Here are some things to do with your time in Huacachina, including day trips.
I’d like to talk about Lima. I mean, it is Peru’s Capital City and it’s also one of the main cities people start their trip in. It’s a city you need to learn to love, a lot like Nicolas Cage films actually. It’s also one that has different districts and reputations depending on what stories you hear, people you meet. Leaving Lima, you’re also able to stop in at a lot of nice little places as well along the way to either Cusco/Arequipa.
Read below on some tips for what to do with your time in Lima.
Hi Pals, I’ve been frequenting Canberra for a while now seeing as a few of good friends live up there. I kind of want to move to Canberra – the people are friendly, coffee is good and there is a hella good all vegan cafe called ‘Sweet Bones‘ up there too.

If you must see a café – take a look at listed ones that are recommended here which are
Preferably, go to where the animals are wild and can walk around freely such as Nara, Okunoshima and Miyajima
So, here’s how to spend your time in Nara or Okunoshima.

Let’s talk all things Osaka.
Osaka is the second largest metropolitan area, making it busy, busy, busy! But apart from this, you’ll find Castles, Temples and Gardens to relax and get away from the city.
This post is made up of a visit in November 2017 and July 2018 (which explains the change of outfits!) Originally I’d only checked out Osaka for a day and when I returned I had 4 days here. I believe you should give Osaka a bit more time.
With that, here’s how to spend a few days in Osaka.
Let’s talk all things Kyoto.
Kyoto has such a history of traditionalism in Japan, formerly the capital it’s filled with shrines, temples, gardens and palaces. This is one of the main reasons we chose Kyoto as a place to base ourselves for day trips.
