Day 38 – 39: Puno

We took a morning bus out of Arequipa at 8am heading over to Puno. It was a 6 hour bus which typically extends an hour so we reached Puno in the afternoon. Puno is on the border of Lake Titicaca and an entry city into Bolivia. This is our last stop in Peru and then … Continue reading

Day 33 and 37: Arequipa

Sorry that the days got a little jumbled, but I wanted to get the Colca adventure down before I forgot any details. Now, I’ll backtrack to our time in Arequipa which is a city in the south east part of Peru. Interestingly enough, a lot of Peruvians think of Arequipa very separately. My friend Tonino … Continue reading

Day 34 – 36: Colca Canyon Trek

Guys, what an eventful few days! I did not have any wifi access during my time in Colca, but it really was better that way. The terrain was so diverse over the 3 days / 2 night excursion that I felt like I was going through different countries at times. It blows my mind the various biomes that … Continue reading

Day 27 – 32: Last of Lima

The rest of my time in Lima was really amazing.  I spent the majority of my time living day-to-day by going to class, hanging out with friends that I’ve made in the city including my roommate and eating good food. The time just kind of flew by. I finally started acting my age a bit and did … Continue reading

Day 17 – 26: Miraflores, Barranco and Downtown, Lima

Guys, I’m sorry. I know, I know, I fell off and some of you started wondering whether I was alive. Truth be told, I was ridiculously sick for like 4 days and then I’ve been just trying to get back into the traveling mood. I sadly spent most of my hostel time in Lima in … Continue reading

Day 14 – 16: Lima!

So all, I’ve made it to my “home base” for these two months of travel, the city of Lima. I’ve only been here for about a day and a half, but I must say, I’m a bit smitten. It’s not that the city has a bunch of must-see spots, but it just seems so livable … Continue reading

Day 12 – 13: Cuzco and a very long bus ride

Hi, all! Sorry for my delay on the post. After safely reaching Lima from Cuzco, all I really wanted to do was relax and I could not get myself to sit down and put this post together. Anyways, better late than never so here is a post on my last day and a half in Cuzco … Continue reading

Day 10 – 11: Cuzco

It’s been so relaxing being back in Cuzco! The weather is so great here, like 60-70s during the day and 50s at night. I absolutely love it. It’s also nice being back in a town that I’ve already visited, so just filling in the pieces and meeting plenty of people along the way. When I arrived into … Continue reading

Day 8 – 9: Puerto Maldonado

After two days in the Tambopata Reserve, we made our way back to Puerto Maldonado for one more night. This city is basically a departure point for a lot of Amazon tours that go deeper into the reserve, but is also a part of the Amazons in its own right. We stayed with the same folks that … Continue reading

Day 6 – 7: Tambopata Reserve

After reaching back in Cuzco after the trek, we took off the next morning for Puerto Maldonado. We had set up a tour here for the Amazon through Wasai to go see some natural wildlife, as well as relax in the rainforest after our trek. I will say that my favorite part about this portion of … Continue reading
