The Flavors of Peru

There are certain moments you don’t even remember you had stored in your memory bank that start to pour in once you revisit a place. Flashbacks that fill your mind with all the good times, a feeling so beautiful that you can’t help but smile. When I got off the plane in Peru, it all started […]

Inca Jungle Trek

  My sister arrived in Cuzco September 7th, and the three of us spent a few days bouncing around several hostels before booking our Machu Picchu trip. We knew going into it, that it was too late to book the Inca Trail… you have to do that month in advance. So it was between the […]

My body was sore for three days after sand boarding in Huacachina, possibly due to the fact that I rarely exercise or maybe it was the countless falls in the sand. I’m guessing both! Chris and I arrived in Ica, and took a 5 soles cab ride to Huacachina.  Our taxi driver recommended hostel Carolina del Sur.  […]

Mancora, Peru

I just spent the past few days lounging poolside in Mancora. My skin is bronzed and I feel totally refreshed! This is the second time we’ve been in this town, the weather is in the mid-70s, but it gets pretty windy. We stayed at a hotel called “California Beach” and our friends from Lobitos also […]

To get to Lobitos we woke up at 6am to get ready for our 7am bus ride from Chiclayo. It wasn’t easy getting up, but the ride was only 5 hours north. We stayed at Hotel Relajate, which offered 3 meals a day for about $25-$30, including our ocean front room. Lobitos is great for […]

It’s hard to believe I’ve been on this trip for two months already! Feels nice! We spent the past few days in Chiclayo, it’s a little-big city… if you know what I mean. It has everything from museums to casinos and lots of clothing stores. We went to two museums- “El señor de Sipan” and […]
