Peru had a rich cultural life thousands of years before Pizarro turned up in funny clothing. Wander around colonial cities that echo the legacy of Spanish conquistadors, explore the ancient Inca capital of Cuzco, visit the lost city of Machu Picchu and ponder the enigma of the Nazca Lines. Peru also boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in South America. The beautiful Peruvian Andes issue a siren's call to top-class trekkers. These mountains are also home to squillions of indigenous highlanders, who still speak the ancient tongue of Quechua and live a traditional way of life.

Here was a day that I ticked off another item on my bucket list. After a delayed start that afforded us time to do some souvenir shopping, the clouds finally cleared enough for our little plane to take off. I calmed the nerves with some coca tea (which ... Read more >

Paracas to Nasca

Wed, 10 Oct 2018 | By mattso | Views [459]

Pisco sours are sneaky! They go down all too easily with your freshly grilled fish and scallops, and leave you with furry brain lag the next morning! But I'll go back for more, in a couple of days. We started the day with a drive to the Julio C. Tello ... Read more >

Onward to Peru Chapter 2 The trip to the airport was filled with further bumbles as I opted to take the bus. I had forgotten that you need to have a plastic card first so that you can charge it up with cash. Bought the card and enough credit ... Read more >
