Enjoying a Condor Moment in the Colca Canyon

PERU | Wednesday, 12 Sep 2012 | Views [384]

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

PERU | Monday, 10 Sep 2012 | Views [356]

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 >

Up at 5am yet again – I wonder when we’ll next get up after the sun has risen.   William, our guide, came to collect us and duly informed us that the group now consisted of 9.   Our instinct was that this was going to be too large a ... Read more >

The Salkantay Trek to the Lost City of Machu Picchu

PERU | Thursday, 30 Aug 2012 | Views [683]

The group turned out to be much, much bigger than we’d expected at 24.   On talking to other they were as surprised as us and in general people are more used to walking in smaller groups.   Obviously the beginning of the day involved lots ... Read more >

Cusco is very nice but very very touristy!

PERU | Sunday, 26 Aug 2012 | Views [690]

We’d bought tickets from the Power bus company the previous evening and were a little worried that it may not go since we were the only ones to have done so.   Anyway by the time we got to the station for the 8am departure there were ... Read more >


Crossing the Border to Peru

PERU | Thursday, 23 Aug 2012 | Views [272]

We grudgingly checked out of our lovely room and walked down to the bay to hop on a boat back to Copacabana.   Once back in town it took a while to rouse someone before we could pick up our bags – I think we’d been the first and last to ... Read more >

The Magical Isla Del Sol on lake Titicaca

BOLIVIA | Wednesday, 22 Aug 2012 | Views [1105]

On checking out we left all our luggage bar an over-night bag as we were off to catch a boat to Isla del Sol on Lake Titicaca.   Many people choose to do this as a day trip but we’d read there was plenty of good walking to do so decided to ... Read more >

At the Copa.... Copacabana....

With Sorata’s main square still all dug up there was a modicum of confusion at the minibus stand.   Not surprisingly our directo bus turned out not to exist but our ticket was promptly revised and the necessary change given.   In the ... Read more >

Relaxing in Serene Sorata

BOLIVIA | Sunday, 19 Aug 2012 | Views [392]

With an extra day on our hands we decided it was time to head out of the city once and for all and find somewhere to relax and catch up with chores. Sorata sounded like it would fit the bill nicely at 1000m lower than La Paz and a population of less ... Read more >

The same taxi with driver Edwin was at the hotel bang on 8am to collect us to begin our next expedition. We rendezvoused on the outskirts of the city centre with Sixto, a boot load full of stuff and our technical guide Theo. Once again it seemed to ... Read more >
