Leaving Peru behind

Hola Amigos, This post is gonna be about our last hours in Peru. Currently I’m, in a hammock in Cuyabeno, which is almost the most northeast part of the country. So imagine how much we are behind. It could have easily be more, but some times I actually like to write my experiences down. Besides…

Kuelap & Gocta

Dear friends, Going forther up north in Peru, Chachapoyas was one of our first determined destinations when planning our trip. Chachapoyas is one of the entries to the peruvian Amazon and indeed you can tell as soon as you get out the bus. It’s very wet (raining when we arrived) and very green. Chachapoyas was…

Peruvian Coast – Trujillo and Huanchaco

After many hikes at high altitude, many times freezing my hands while taking landscape pictures – we finally arrived in warmer regions: The nothern coast of Peru. We made our way to Trujillo by bus from Lima (Linea, 8hrs) during the day, so we arrived just after nightfall. The Plaza de Armas of Trujillo is…

Rushing Huaraz

I can read your first thoughts reading the titel. Why would we be in a rush when we have 6 months in South America. The reason for this is that we found a cheap ticket to Galapagos from Guayaquil(Ecuador) for like 200 euros cheaper than the average price. The flight was unfortunately a week earlier…

Lima Again

After a 23 hour bus ride from Cusco we arrived back in Lima to spend two days before heading to the north of Peru and heading towards Ecuador. During this stopover we chilled alot without purpose. We stayed again at the Pariwana hostel which was still as good as the first time. We walked through…

Sacred Valley

Qosqo, also known as Cusco

Dear friends, We finally, after hearing so many people praise Cusco, made it there too. From Puno we took the nightbus straight to this famous city. Cusco, once the center of the Inca empire, now the starting point for tourists to reach Machu Picchu. I will make this blog post more structured, to find info….

Lago Titicaca

And so we made our way to the lake of Titicaca! Starting in Copacabana, visiting la Isla de Sol and making a final stop in Puno. To get to Copacabana we took a bus at the cementerio of La Paz. It’s 20 soles for an most 4 hour ride. In Copacabana we stayed at a…

Colca Canyon

Dear friends, It’s time to write about our trip into the Colca Canyon. I tell you, it was hard work, but it was more than worth it and I think it was the nicest thing we did so far. But let’s start at the beginning. The Colca Canyon was this one thing everyone talked about…

White City Arequipa

Chicos, It’s time for my second post! Are you exited already? I’m writing again from a bus…How come? This time we are heading towards Cabanaconde, spotting alot of wild alpacas on the way. From here we will hike around the Colca Canyon. More about this in the future. But first about Arequipa, the town we…
