SAHARA

Sorry for being completely MIA lately. March was a real whirlwind. Nonstop travel. Excitement. Planning. Friends. Fun. Sun. Snow. Tired. I can’t even wrap my head around the fact that it’s already APRIL!

Can you believe it? I only had one weekend in Madrid last month. Let’s just say I’m extremely happy to be home!

Don’t get me wrong, traveling is one of the highlights of my life. But hey, so is relaxing and you can’t always combine the two!

Late last night I returned from one of the longest, yet best weeks of my life.

I’ll definitely be sharing more about my experience later, but as I just arrived home, caught some type of parasite in Morocco (I’ll spare you the details) and really just don’t have the time or energy right now, I’ll simply be sharing some of my favorite photos!

Did you know that the Sahara is the largest “hot” desert in the world, covering 3.6 million square miles of the continent of Africa?! That’s some major surface area ..

Well, we hardly scratched the surface. Still, sand dune after sand dune stretched on as far as my feeble eyes could see.

It wasn’t an easy task to capture the immensity of this vast sandy playground in photos, but of course that didn’t stop me from trying.

Most of these pictures were also taken atop an uneven hump as my camel so gracefully thumped along…

For the next week I’ll be popping three pills a day, guzzling bottled water and sticking to a strict BRAT diet, but guess what- every second was worth it.

I have photos and stories for days, but as of right now dehydration and exhaustion has got the best of me. I’ll have to save them for another time.

Here are some snapshots from my trip:
