The time had come for us to explore the awesome Sahara Desert.

We were staying at Yasmina Hotel in Merzouga right on the edge of the Sahara. The most awesome thing about this location is you can walk straight from the hotel out into the dunes and that is exactly what we did right after breakfast.

Some of our group opted to go on a 4×4 excursion around the area, but we decided to stay and explore by ourselves, I’m glad we did because walking the dunes allowed us to get some pretty amazing pictures.
