What happens when you lead your life through inspiration and inspiration strikes?
Well, you have to follow it, of course!
“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.”

No fear, just flying high!
Want to do do something incredible in Lima, Peru? Put your fears aside and try parasailing off the beuatiful cliffs in Miraflores, located in Peru’s capital. For me, it was the most unforgettable experience, challenging & overcoming fears and creating something I’ll remember the rest of my life. As our feet lifted off the ground and I felt that first sensation of flying, I felt the most overwhelming sense of freedom!

The Ballestas Islands include small group of islands close to Paracas, situated just within the region of Ica. And because it’s referred to as the Poor Man’s Galapagos, we were so there! Visiting the Islas Ballestas is one of the highlights of this area and attracts tourists year around. These beautiful islands are actually rock formations, serving as the area’s most significant sanctuary for marine life. Bird species such as the guanayguano bird is the most important guano producing in the Peruvian coast. (We’re talking bird poop folks!) Also, the Blue-Footed Booby reside in the many islands and are popular among the tourists. Other known species are Humboldt Penguins, two different species of seals and the sea lions all call the Ballestas home.

In my wildest dreams would I have never thought walking through a sandy plane scattered with ancient human remains was even possible. I never thought there could be a place like this left on the planet. And Miro and I visited this cemetery with researcher Brien Foerster on our recent trip down south. But Miro and I did experience just that, stumbling across the remains of the Incas, Chincha and even those of the once thriving Paracas culture. This once burial site of the ancients is now a bone junk yard, only needing to dig into the shallow sandy dunes to uncover layer upon layer of grave sites.
