We are on the road again! The pups were hugged goodbye and then hugged again. See you all again soon! Advertisements
Due to a passport snafu, we are delaying our trip to Southeast Asia until January, 2015…but we are filling the rest of 2014 with a good ole fashioned American Road Trip!
If there is one thing that the last 6 months have taught me…it’s how to roll with the punches. If there is one thing that the last 2 weeks is taught me…it’s ALWAYS USE FEDEX.
Everything is back to normal…beer and bear.
After visiting the jewel in Peru’s crown, Machu Picchu, I expected our day tour of the Sacred Valley to be a bit of a let down in comparison…I couldn’t have been more wrong!
Much like the run up to the Sloth Sanctuary visit in Costa Rica, anticipation built as the day of the Machu Picchu trip approached. I found it hard to sleep the night before our visit.
We left Puno much as we came in: crammed into a 15 passenger van loaded up with locals. 1 hour later, we braved the streets of Juliaca and made it to our designated Peru Hop pick-up point, which was a small restaurant on the main ring-road.
Having gotten ourselves to the world’s highest navigable lake, we decided that we ought to explore some of it. Becci and I wandered down to the marina with our new pal, Doncaster Dave, to explore our lake-faring options.
Having survived our trip to 12,000ft above sea level, we had a full day in Arequipa to relax and do a bit of shopping.
Greetings, friends. It has been an animal-filled couple of days. We saw bunches.
There is 712km between Huacachina and Arequipa, and we managed the journey in 16 hours with a couple of stops along the way.
Greetings from the desert oasis of Huacachina, Peru.
