Relaxing and Hiking in Vilcabamba

ECUADOR | Tuesday, 2 Oct 2012 | Views [540]

The last instalment ended in a bit of a hurry so let me take some time to tell you about the excellent place we’re staying in during our first 3 nights in a new country.   Le Rendez-Vous Hostal Guesthouse (French owned you may have guessed) ... Read more >

Entering Ecuador by the Back Door

ECUADOR | Sunday, 30 Sep 2012 | Views [497]

Before setting off on our 2-day trip to Ecuador we watched some more football; well it might be our last chance.   For once we were glad we did as both City and Liverpool racked up away wins and we discovered later that day that Man ... Read more >

Chacapoyas and Kuelap

PERU | Friday, 28 Sep 2012 | Views [1267]

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

PERU | Thursday, 27 Sep 2012 | Views [577]

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!

PERU | Monday, 24 Sep 2012 | Views [597]

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

PERU | Saturday, 22 Sep 2012 | Views [1056]

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

PERU | Tuesday, 18 Sep 2012 | Views [401] | 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

PERU | Sunday, 16 Sep 2012 | Views [462]

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'

PERU | Friday, 14 Sep 2012 | Views [1983]

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

PERU | Thursday, 13 Sep 2012 | Views [408]

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 >
