Finally on the move again

Saturday, 21 Jul 2007 | Views [367]

I'm out! I am safely and happily back in Lima :) My flight got in at 11am, and I have to wait until about 7pm for my bus to take me to Chiclayo. 12 hours (ugh), but that's okay...I got a comfy bus and I have sleeping pills so I should be fine! Then ... Read more >

Not bored yet!

Friday, 29 Jun 2007 | Views [486]

So I had from 10am at checkout until 10pm when my bus takes me away to Puno to spend the day, bored, because everyone I know and love has left for Machu Picchu and and my dorm was empty. Or so I expected. I was walking around the city for a little ... Read more >

Machu Picchu- what?

Friday, 29 Jun 2007 | Views [1556] | Comments [2]

As an extremely last-minute plan (12 hours prior to leaving), I ended up deciding to see Machu Picchu! No Inca Trail, no hiking, just the day tour. I actually did not even want to see it. I figured I had better things to spend USD$150 on, but went ... Read more >

Just a thought...

Tuesday, 26 Jun 2007 | Views [353]

I think I might go to Europe when I get home. I mean, I have until January (when I start school, hopefully) to do nothing, and I've been meeting so many cool Europeans on this trip, and it owuld be really fun to just work for a month or two, save up ... Read more >

Inti Raymi

Monday, 25 Jun 2007 | Views [583]

Last night we arrived in Cusco after a very brief stop in Arequipa (literally one evening, overnight, and leave at 7am), after an 11-hour bus ride that we had originally expected to last 6 hours. Surprise! We were wrong, as usual! But we got off the ... Read more >

I've left Lima with two Brits from my dorm room who were, coincidentally, also heading to Cuzco for the big festival on the 24th, and spent the night before last in Huacachina, the Oasis in the desert (it's literally a little tourist town built around ... Read more >

Lima, land of wonders

Wednesday, 20 Jun 2007 | Views [902]

Lima is beautiful! A population of 8 000 000 makes it incredibly massive, but it's definitely worth exploring. Chinatown, the biggest market I've ever seen in my life, endless restaurants, bars, and cafes, huge architectural buildings that are hundreds ... Read more >

Pillows and showers

Monday, 18 Jun 2007 | Views [445]

The last day is such a blur- I'm so tired right now. Out until 4:30am the night before last, slept for 4 hours, then was awake until roughly 8 this morning. At 7 in the evening yesterday, Patricia and I headed into Trujillo to buy our bus tickets. ... Read more >

Siete horas

Sunday, 17 Jun 2007 | Views [547]

Last night was just way rad...I think it's ridiculous the number of cool people you meet on the road! Me, Pat, Soloman Island guy (James), all the people who work at the surf shop, two guys I'd met in Mancora who are now here in Huanchaco, 2 hilarious ... Read more >

Where are you, sun?!

Saturday, 16 Jun 2007 | Views [409]

Okay, I love traveling so much, but I hate leaving places behind. Which I suppose is really bad if you're backpacking, but it's just so depressing every time I leave. In every city so far, when I'm going that day, I feel so...down. I'm not sure why, ... Read more >

Surfer chica

Uh oh, I've been missing out on updating my blog a bit lately, sorry everyone! Well I don't have much of interest to post, unfortunately. Huanchaco is gorgeous, though I think I will much more appreciate it when I return in the Peruvian summer, because ... Read more >

Just a quick note

Sunday, 10 Jun 2007 | Views [333]

Finding someone to flirt with in S America is the best way to practice your Spanish and start to develop your vocabulary. All day I've been hanging out with my surf instructor, and all day I've managed to hold conversation and successfully communicate ... Read more >

Surprise, surprise

Sunday, 10 Jun 2007 | Views [406]

Well, I did something no one (including myself) ever expected me to do... I surfed! I woke up hot, sunburned and covered in sand, looked up at the bamboo ceiling and thought "This must be what it feels like to be a surfer. If I was in Hawaii, ... Read more >

Sand, sunburn, and salt water

Friday, 8 Jun 2007 | Views [661] | Comments [2]

And I have arrived in magical Mancora, a sunny beach town in North-Western Peru! Let me tell you it is heaven. Miles of beach hugging pristine-clean and clear waters of the sea, bamboo-with-straw-roofed shops selling sarongs, shell and hemp necklaces, ... Read more >
