  • Sea dayTuesday 18 April 2023 Before breakfast I noticed a lot of birds diving for fish and caught the glimmer of the sun on a dolphin. By the time I got out on my balcony I was only able to get a Posted by MissWalker in Jen's Journey | Apr 18, 2023
  • Salaverry, PeruMonday 17 April 2023 Yesterday, some people left the ship and some got on. Lima is the starting and ending point for people doing the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu as Hurtigruten add-ons. The numbers on board seem even lower now. After Posted by MissWalker in Jen's Journey | Apr 17, 2023
  • Callao, PeruSunday 16 April 2023 The ship was supposed to dock in Callao (pr Cayao) at 06.00, but was kept waiting for over half an hour by the harbour master ... a lot of cargo ships in the harbour. This is another Posted by MissWalker in Jen's Journey | Apr 16, 2023

  • Lazy day at seaFriday 14 April 2023 As Arica was very near the border with Peru I suppose we have been sailing in Peruvian waters today. Another new country for me. After a couple of busy days, and still not feeling well, I spent most Posted by MissWalker in Jen's Journey | Apr 14, 2023

  • Jan. 16 –SAN MARTIN, PERU Many of our South American ports are not just cruise ports. These giant spokes for wind turbines will travel by land to a wind farm some miles away near the Nazca Lines. [img=https://photo Posted by Swenigale in VOLENDAM 2023 (WINTER) | Jan 17, 2023
  • Jan. 15 –LIMA, PERU It is a good thing – elevator carpets are magically changed each night. It’s Sunday morning! As we are still in port, the worship service will be at 6pm (on days at sea it is generally at Posted by Swenigale in VOLENDAM 2023 (WINTER) | Jan 16, 2023
  • Jan. 14 –LIMA, PERU Lima’s busy streets were easy to navigate, thanks to Google Maps! Here was our goal, the Bohemian neighborhood of Barranco, a one-hour walk from our shuttle stop in Miraflores. [img=http Posted by Swenigale in VOLENDAM 2023 (WINTER) | Jan 15, 2023
  • Jan. 13 –LIMA PERU The working port of Lima – in addition to all of the mystery containers being loaded and unloaded, there are giant hoppers loading and unloading tons of corn (think Tacos and Corn Chips 😊). Posted by Swenigale in VOLENDAM 2023 (WINTER) | Jan 15, 2023
  • 2022==Looking Back== Another year of travels, with finishing up a year in Peru, and then heading back to the US. 2022: Started the year off with trips in the north part of Peru. That included beach towns around Mancora, in the Piura and Posted by MurkTravels in MurkTravels | Dec 31, 2022
  • Nazca and Paracas 2022 - Peru==overview / intro== For the final trip in Peru, we headed a bit south of Lima and Ica. We saw the Paracas National Park and shoreline. We quickly saw some of it the first weekend we were in Peru, so it Posted by MurkTravels in MurkTravels | Sep 20, 2022
  • Hopping around Titicaca"Titicaca". For me, it's one of those names like "Katmandu", "Borobudur" or "Mandalay" that come with their own air of mystery. The kind of places Tintin might go to. Some facts for you: Lake Titicaca (or Titikaka, or Titiqaqa, all seem Posted by loscaracoles in Los Caracoles en América del Sur | Dec 3, 2022
  • Chilling in CuscoHaving been on the move for over 3 months, we decided it was time to stay in one place for a bit to recover from our travel fatigue. We chose Cusco because we heard it is a really nice city Posted by loscaracoles in Los Caracoles en América del Sur | Nov 26, 2022
  • Meandering to Machu PicchuAfter another 4AM start (plus negotiating two taxis and a minibus from Cusco) we found ourselves at the trailhead of the Salkantay trek, named after the impressive, snow-capped Salkantay mountain visible throughout the route. I lifted my (rather hefty) pa Posted by loscaracoles in Los Caracoles en América del Sur | Nov 21, 2022
  • The White City and Canyon CountryArequipa is Peru's second largest city, nicknamed 'The White City' due to most of the buildings in the old town being made from white volcanic rock (or 'silla').

  • Midnight at the oasis After Lima, we made a quick overnight stop at Huacachina, Peru's only desert oasis. The landscape in this part of the country is sandy and rocky desert. In fact it's the northern tip of the Atacama desert. Huacachina is basically Posted by loscaracoles in Los Caracoles en América del Sur | Nov 8, 2022
  • On the muddy banks of the RímacIt would be remiss (and logistically difficult) to visit Peru without at least passing through its megacity capital Lima. The city was founded by the hardnut* conquistador Francisco Pizarro who, after arriving on the coast of Peru, famously shook down Posted by loscaracoles in Los Caracoles en América del Sur | Nov 8, 2022
  • Cordillera capersWe'd been looking forward to coming to Huaraz for a while and it really didn't disappoint. Huaraz is a town in the Andes in Peru, with the Cordillera Negra on one side and the more spectacular snow-topped peaks of the Posted by loscaracoles in Los Caracoles en América del Sur | Oct 30, 2022
  • Temples in TrujilloWe stopped over in Trujillo solely to break up the long journey to Huaraz. It turned out to be a strong decision after we both managed to catch some sort of stomach bug in Mancora. Not sure we could have Posted by loscaracoles in Los Caracoles en América del Sur | Oct 21, 2022
  • Mooching in MancoraRachel here. I thought I should probably give Stuart a break from writing for once so here we go... We were sad to leave Ecuador and staggered onto a night bus in Cuenca, after perhaps filling the time waiting with a Posted by loscaracoles in Los Caracoles en América del Sur | Oct 21, 2022
  • Arequipa 2022 - Peru==overview / intro== Our trip to Arequipa, the city and the department, included a 3 day hike of Colca Canyon. It's the 3rd deepest canyon in the world. Part of that trip included, a bus tour to a condor viewpoint above Posted by MurkTravels in MurkTravels | Jun 25, 2022

  • Chachapoyas 2022 - Peru==overview / intro== In the north central part of Peru is an interesting area. It's part of the highlands, we were around 10,000 feet of elevation a lot of the time. But it's also part of the rainforest. The rivers here Posted by MurkTravels in MurkTravels | Apr 25, 2022
