RebeccaRenee This is a journal of my trip to Peru. Other than an overnight stay in Canada, I have never been out of the US. This will be the trip of my life....so far!

Back Home Safe and Sound

USA | Wednesday, 1 Oct 2008 | Views [258]

I'm home, I had a great time but I am glad to be back. That was a long trip. I needed it desperately and I am happy to be sleeping in my own bed again. Where to next? Hmm, how about the Marshall Islands? ;)


More Than I Bargained For

USA | Saturday, 20 Sep 2008 | Views [468]

Well, I had a little side adventure the rest of the travel group missed out on.... After we hiked the Inca Trail (30 MILES BABY!!!!) and finished touring Machupicchu, we had to catch a train from a little town below Machupicchu called Aguas Callientes ... Read more >

Cuzco at last

USA | Sunday, 14 Sep 2008 | Views [497]

I arrived at the Cuzco airport at about 8:30 and got a cab...what a ride! I do not think there are any real rules or laws as far as driving goes. Apparantly blowing your horn give you the right of way! There are dogs everywhere and this a really busy ... Read more >

PERU | Saturday, 13 Sep 2008 | Views [498]

Whew, I`m tired....it´s 2AM in Lima and I´m waiting for my next flight to Cuzco. It leaves at about 5:30AM. I have been doing well, some trouble with the phones and this keyboard! I bought an international calling card that you can´t use from airport ... Read more >

Testing the Pack (and me)

USA | Sunday, 7 Sep 2008 | Views [468]

So I took the dogs for a hike today and wore my pack fully loaded. I was pretty impressed. I did well. Of course, once I add about 30 degrees and much thinner air, I'm sure it will be significantly more difficult but I really think I'll be fine. With ... Read more >

Packing the Pack

USA | Friday, 5 Sep 2008 | Views [455]

Whoo Baby is my pack full! I think I'm pushing the limits on it- I've had it for a very long time and this will be the the most amazing adventure it's been on as well. It only weighs 23 pounds though. That's very manageable. I repacked it again today ... Read more >

Only Three Weeks to go!

USA | Sunday, 24 Aug 2008 | Views [522]

I don't know what I was thinking with my first entry where I said "only a few more details and I'm ready to go!" HA! I packed my bag for the first time the other day, I'm really glad I did. I repacked it tonight but this time I packed EVERYTHING ... Read more >

More Preparation

USA | Monday, 28 Jul 2008 | Views [451]

I'm almost done with my vaccinations. I had to get all of my standard shots as well since my shot record from childhood has disappeared. I'm at the age now that boosters of all of these don't hurt though and now I have a complete shot record to go with ... Read more >
