Day 12 is about Places I Have Visited.

A lot of you may already know about all my travels, because it’s a big interest in my blog. So this post may link to a lot of older posts that will be able to tell you in more detail about these places.

Let’s start locally.

New Zealand, my home country.

Earth and the Wonders I’ve Seen

For my interpretation of this week’s photo challenge, I’ll take a look at all the places I’ve visited here onΒ Earth.

I haven’t travelled as much as I want to, but I have seen quite a few incredible things.

In my home country of New Zealand, I hiked the Tongariro Crossing and saw the Emerald Lakes.

I went to Sydney, and I was able to see the Blue Mountains, an impressive rock formation.

Amazon Rainforest

Amazon Rainforest

Iquitos was our last stop in this month long Peru Trip. We arrived at the airport and were immediately picked up to go to our lodge in the Rainforest. We spent five days in the Amazon Rainforest, getting amazing catered meals, going out on tour everyday, seeing an amazing range of animals and sights, and constantly battling mosquitos. Being there everyday felt magical, like we had taken an ElixirΒ (see what I did there), and been transported to another world.

Ica (and Huacachina)

Ica (and Huacachina)

Ica threw us into the desert part of Peru. It was also my introduction to how I don’t cope well in 30 degrees heat. I get very cranky and I’m constantly aware of how sweaty I feel. That may also have been related to me being sick during this leg of the trip. But we soldiered on, determined to soak in as much as we can, including spending a night in Huacachina, a neat little oasis just next to Ica.
