An Incan Adventure
Incan vow renewal high above Cusco
An amazing adventure paragliding over Lima, a wedding ceremony in Cuzco, hiking to the top of the Andes, Machu Pichu, and sailing Lake Titicaca.
Sept 18th, Arriving in Lima
Normally, an airline losing two extra grande cameo duffel bags after a lengthy stop in only one city, would likely send me over the edge of any semblance of human composure. But my surprising attitude was a good omen of the trip to come, and quite a relief for my lovely wife. As I soared to over 200 feet on a paraglider above the hand tiled …
Sept 19th, An Incan Wedding
Lima is a beautiful and vibrant city but escaping the crowds for the highlands of Cuzco was a change we were very much looking forward to. Upon arriving at the small airport which sat nestled between the Andean mountains, we were relieved to find our luggage waiting patiently at the baggage claim and more relieved to find our guide, Juan Samanez, …
Sept 20th - Rafting the Inca Trail
Spectacular isn't a big enough word to describe rafting down the Urubamba River. Braced on all sides by the dry and dusty peaks of the Andes and lined by the ancient walls and fortresses of the Incas, the swift current carried our raft through the rapids with amazing speed. Upon my inquiry regarding the danger rating of the white water we …
Sept 21st - Biking the Highlands
A good night's rest in a beautiful little hotel that overlooked the ruins was just the respite that we needed. After waking early to avoid being caught by the striking villages that would soon block the roads with rocks, cactus, and felled trees, we backtracked to a family run textile ''factory'' in the sleepy little village of Chinchero. Our …
Sept 22nd - Hiking the Roof of the World
The next morning at Tauca village we were awoken to a cacophony of donkeys braying, pack horses whinnying and calling out to one another, and a lazy rooster waking well beyond sunrise. A hearty breakfast was provided by our team and we were treated to an amusing display between an extremely stubborn mule and one of our horsemen. The hot meal was …
Sept 23rd - Exploring the Ruins of Huay Cusco
Our morning began with a daring hike whose decent would cover 5,000 feet along a narrow footpath. Looking down upon the village of Lamay my legs began to tremble and shake while my mind swam in images of the fall that was so very possible as I gingerly peered over the precipice, but then again I always get a thrill when I put my vertigo to the …
Sept 24th - The Ruins of Machu Picchu
I liken the train ride to Machu Picchu with one of my favorite children's books The Polar Express wherein a small select group of children are hustled out of their homes late in the night by an old tyme train on a trip to the North Pole to meet Santa Claus. The luxury and appearance of the quaint, old fashioned locomotive to Aguas Calientes was …
Sept 25th - Goodbye to a New Friend
The night before in Aguas Calientes, we had drunken heartily to both celebrate and mourn the loss of our friend Juan who had to return to Cusco to monitor the upcoming elections. It was a moment we both dreaded as we couldnt imagine our time in Peru without him. In the short while we had together he had become a friend and companion, a person we …
Sept 26th - 28th, Lake Titicaca and the End of a Journey
We woke the next morning after a much needed night's sleep to begin our boat trip to the Uros Floating Islands. Boarding a craft that was obscenely large and well equipped for our small crew of five, we glided swiftly and quietly through the water as we lounge on the top deck, listening to the waves lap against the side and basking in the warm …
