From the highs of Cusco to the depths of the jungle, this trip was one of the best of my entire life. The pictures tell a better story than I ever could.
My friend Margy and I embarked on our first trip together. We loved Peru and had a great time in the Galapagos!
Magical Peru, we've always wanted to go, but with work restrictions, we could never fit into a group tour. After comparing every tour available by other tour groups we managed to turn this tour into a private trip with Adventure Life. Let the fun begin!
Peru Travels - Inca ruins of Machu Picchu, Pisco, Ollantaytambo, Sacsayhuaman, the Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco, Moray salt mines and more. It is easy to understand why a tour of Peru is such a favorite among our travelers and staff alike.
Adventures in Peru -- birthday cake on our Inca Trail trek, visiting children at the Mantay Shelter, celebrations in the Cusco plaza, and making Dead Woman's Pass at 3 month's pregnant. I don't think we'll ever be able to top this Peru trip.
An account of how we fell in love with Peru, and in the process, also fell back in love with each other.
We travelled as far south as Antarctica, where complete solitude was discovered."El Mitad del Mundo" was the most northernly stop. Hiked the "W" circuit of Torres del Paine and the Inca Trail. Awed by Punta del Diablo, Salar de Uyu
In summary, this was a month well spent. We cannot praise highly enough Adventure life for their assistance in putting all this together.
A group of students from Canisius College in Buffalo, NY were lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel to Ecuador and to the Galapagos Islands. This is just one student's journal from the adventure..
Travels through Cusco to the Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco, the San Pedro market for fresh goods, the local market in Urubamba, and Samanapac Hotel in Ollantaytambo.
I finally arrived in Lima, Peru, by 11:30 pm. I was doing a slightly modified version of our Incas and Rainforest trip, and was extremely excited to finally arrive in the country and begin my Peru travel.
I woke at 4 am for our early flight to Lima via Salt Lake and Atlanta. We didn't know it yet, but this would be the start of many pre-dawn departures so it was good to get prepared from the start.
This was our first real international trip, and it changed our lives. We explored the Southern coastal region, Lake Titicaca, and the Cusco area, and made life-long friends with guides Carlos and Vidal. Text and photos from www.craigandstephsvacations.com
