Chacapoyas and Kuelap

Friday, 28 Sep 2012 | Views [1217]

The night bus from Trujillo took the expected 13hrs and we reached Chachapoyas as the first of the day’s light was dawning.   It’s only a small town so it was a short walk down to the main square where we were soon checked into Hostel ... Read more >

Time Out in Huanchaco

Thursday, 27 Sep 2012 | Views [527]

On arriving in Huanchaco yesterday afternoon we checked into the excellent Hostal Naylamp    which feels like a real treat.   The rooms are spacious, spotless and with 2 windows wonderfully bright and airy.   We splashed out on a ... Read more >

Rock the Casma!

Monday, 24 Sep 2012 | Views [544]

We’d hummed and hawed so much over what to do and where to go next that by the time we left Huaraz we were on plan G!   In the end we jumped on a Yungay Express bus to Casma for Soles20 each and only a 4-hour ride.   It turned out to ... Read more >

Cruising on the Santa Cruz trek

Saturday, 22 Sep 2012 | Views [1005]

This time our trek would take us to the Cordillera Blanca which we’d heard was particularly stunning.   By the time the bus was laden and we were all aboard we established that it was a group of 11 so in theory we should have 2 guides.... Read more >

Back in the Andes in Huaraz

Tuesday, 18 Sep 2012 | Views [359] | Comments [1]

We awoke to find it not just cloudy but drizzling too – it was time to move away from the city and hope the weather was better in the mountains.   Movil Tours bus isn’t as posh as some of the other luxury coaches but it’s a step up from ... Read more >

Living it up in Lima

Sunday, 16 Sep 2012 | Views [421]

We checked out of the lovely Hostal El Amigo after watching City’s lacklustre performance against Stoke.   We had said that football wasn’t going to dictate our plans but so far we’ve just happened to be in town when City are on telly ... Read more >

Spotting Wildlife at the 'Poor Man's Galapagos'

Friday, 14 Sep 2012 | Views [1903]

So what brought us to Paracas?   Islas Ballestas: or as it is commonly referred to a poor man’s Galapagos.   Yes, I know we’re booked on the real tour but that’s not for another month so we thought we get a taster.   We couldn’t believe ... Read more >

Coasting Along from Arequipa to Paracas

Thursday, 13 Sep 2012 | Views [360]

Oltursa buses turned out to be excellent and to be honest the whole set up more closely resembled catching a plane.   Our luggage was checked in, hand baggage was given a cursory security check, passports were studied and once we were ... Read more >

Enjoying a Condor Moment in the Colca Canyon

Wednesday, 12 Sep 2012 | Views [335]

We were up at 2.30am for a 3 o’clock start; that can’t be classed as early morning surely it’s the middle of the night!   We drove for about 3 hours to Chivay (3600m) where our tickets for Valle del Colca where purchased and breakfast ... Read more >

Amazing Arequipa

Monday, 10 Sep 2012 | Views [309]

Even though we arrived in Arequipa early in the morning we got a taxi directly to Amazing Home Hostel that had been recommended to us.   It wasn’t cheap at Soles 70 for a private double room but it was just what we needed.   A ... Read more >
