  • Day 1 - Los Angeles, San Salvador, LimaYou might wonder…Why South America? We originally tagged this as a trip to celebrate son Miles’ college graduation, but my work schedule had delayed it for 6 months. Of the many places we’d Posted by hippocampus in Saludos South America 2014 | Jul 22, 2014
  • Peru- Lima, Cusco and the Inca TrailHola from Peru! Tim and I have been gone for only a little over a week, but already we feel like we've experienced and seen a lot.

  • Arequipa to PunoThings started to go downhill today. I had been getting over a cold for a few days and then Dave caught it. In the morning I then discovered some type of tick under my armpit. Initially I thought it was Posted by DianeLewitzke in Enjoy the Journey | Jul 19, 2014
  • From La Paz to Peru via Copacabana (the Bolivian one)Leaving La Paz was even more time-consuming than arriving there, but at least there was a good excuse for the traffic. It was the city's anniversary and there were marching bands everywhere. It was a bit like a St Paddy's Posted by liamwimbo in South America | Jul 17, 2014
  • Nazca to ArequipaWe were on the bus for about 10 hours. The benefit of this is to start acclimatising to the altitude. Arequipa is 2250 metres above sea level. The landscape was initially desert, desert and more desert. Then it was low coastal Posted by DianeLewitzke in Enjoy the Journey | Jul 16, 2014

  • Nazca LinesWe took a flight over the Nazca lines in the afternoon. The landscape was very interesting. There are many theories about the Nazca lines but one of the most popular is that they relate to the constellations, moon and sun Posted by DianeLewitzke in Enjoy the Journey | Jul 15, 2014
  • PeruThey say this is the Galapagos of Peru. Not quite but the birdlife was abundant. We took a cruise to the island and circled around it. The tour guide was great fun and whilst David keeps telling me he doesn't Posted by DianeLewitzke in Enjoy the Journey | Jul 15, 2014
  • The Day After OR Final Destination: Cuzco! So here we go: Good afternoon from Cuzco:) It feels like I haven't posted about what I've been up to for a while, even though I see 2 smaller posts in the last week. I've fully recovered sin Posted by AndreaLed in Andrea's Trip Around the World | Jul 15, 2014
  • So Machu (Picchu)Our alarm went off at 4.30am and we were in a long queue with our guide, Isaac, to catch a bus to Machu Picchu before 6am. We're getting good as this early morning stuff! Apparently on a busy day there Posted by Galavantie in GlobalGalavantie | Jul 14, 2014
  • LimaWe left Puerto Mandando around lunchtime and arrived at hotel around 5pm. The hotel was called Antigua Mira Flores and each room was decorated with a number of antiques. It had a lovely feel to it. When we arrived in Lima Posted by DianeLewitzke in Enjoy the Journey | Jul 13, 2014

It's not my memory failing already, just bad with technology :) Richard, I may need more help :) ==Sandeval Lake== From Heath River lodge to Sandeval Lake Posted by DianeLewitzke in Enjoy the Journey | Jul 12, 2014
  • Remote AmazonThis part of the tour started off a bit rocky due to a last minute reschedule after the DFAT warning. Also when we arrived in Quito after the Galapagos trip was when we received the information and confirmation. It was Posted by DianeLewitzke in Enjoy the Journey | Jul 12, 2014
  • Trekking in the Andes - Huchuy QosqoWe meant to do the Inca Trail but we were so busy having a good time at the end of last year, that we didn't get round to booking it when we should have. When we finally got round to Posted by Galavantie in GlobalGalavantie | Jul 11, 2014
  • Inca ruins, wee smells and tonnes of toutsWe can't deny it was a nice feeling to be in a comfortable B&B again and have the facilities of a town after our Titicaca homestay. It was also exactly three weeks to the day we would be flying home.... Posted by Galavantie in GlobalGalavantie | Jul 10, 2014
  • The "real" South American experienceGreetings from the hospital Lederer-Banse! This week unfortunately is dominated by the "other South American experience", i. e. altitude sickness, nausea & diarrhea:( After my busy week of mountainbiking & Salar de Uyuni I flew back to La Paz and af Posted by AndreaLed in Andrea's Trip Around the World | Jul 9, 2014
  • Puno & Lake TiticacaThe 5.5 hour journey from Arequipa to Puno (located on Lake Titicaca) was really enjoyable. We chose a tour bus this time which was a small mini-van with guide and some stops along the way to break it up.

  • Arequipa's a keeper! (It's not easy thinking up blog titles)It just goes to prove you have to make up your own mind about places rather than take too much notice of other people's opinions. As the crowd once said to Brian of Nazareth, "Yes! We're all individuals! Yes, we Posted by Galavantie in GlobalGalavantie | Jul 3, 2014
  • Machu Picchu- Beds for Hundreds; Toilet for OneThe good night's sleep we had planned after a few days of camping was foiled! Our hotel was conveniently located next door to a loud karaoke club which stayed open until quite late, one of our neighbours had their TV Posted by katepluspat in Kate and Pat Blow the House Deposit | Jun 7, 2014
  • Inca Trail Day Four- Phuyupatamarca to a Real Bed!!Sadly, especially with Kate's hacking cough limiting sleep, we woke up at 5.30 am to watch the sunrise. Scrambling up 50 meter or so of ascent we arrived on top of the peak, surrounded by snow capped mountains and glaciers Posted by katepluspat in Kate and Pat Blow the House Deposit | Jun 6, 2014
  • Inca Trail Day Three- Pacaymayo to PhuyupatamarcaKate's cold has progressed overnight; she's very very congested, coughing constantly and couldn't sleep. As a result, neither could Pat. Luckily we started a bit later so we had a bit longer to try to sleep. Coco tea arrived at Posted by katepluspat in Kate and Pat Blow the House Deposit | Jun 5, 2014
