Magical Machu Picchu
Chronicle of our four person journey to and on the Inca Trail which culminated in a romantic proposal at Machu Picchu to which I said YES!!!
Llama Llama Ding Dong!
My husband and I took the Cachiccata Trek and it was amazing! We loved everything about this trip: Cusco, the Sacred Valley, Ollantaytambo, the 3-day trek and Machu Picchu. We fell in love with the mountains, the people and yes, even the llamas!
Cruise Options for Active Travelers
A recent Wall Street Journal article stated, "Enjoying an ocean cruise and breaking a sweat aren't concepts that traditionally go together. Indeed, the indolence that many people crave from such vacations is the very thing that keeps others away from them."
However, this is changing as there has been an increase ofcruise options …
Peru Service and Travel Philanthropy
Our travelers frequently voice their wishes to contribute to the communities that they will visit, whether it is their first trip to Peru or a return for a second time after such an incredible first experience.

A return to Peru! This time, we head north to trek around the Huayhuash Mountains north of Lima.
Amazon to Andes- Exploring Peru
An amazing journey from deep in the jungle in Manu National Park, to the breathtaking ruins of Machu Picchu.
Peru Multisport Adventure Tour
As an adventuresome couple Peru proved to be the perfect home away from home to celebrate our new life together. Living in Colorado drew us to the magnificent Andes and it was a great fit for our love of the outdoors. We spent almost every moment of our visit enjoying the mountains in a variety of ways. Traveling came by way of plane, train, and …
Patagonia. How does one describe an area that is indescribable? It's a land of stark contrasts--jagged snow-capped mountains peaks, pristine lakes, and massive glaciers of mesmerizing beauty, but also a landscape of barren emptiness inhabited only by the incessant Patagonian wind. We called it ''Elusive Patagonia.'' After reading our journal and …

7 wonders at a 7 wonder
How can you summarize Cusco, Ollantaytambo, Aguas Calientes and Machu Picchu? You can't! The 7 wonders of our trip:1-How'd they build the road to Machu Picchu (MP) and how do they keep them in great shape? They aren't paved and there are many switchbacks and many many buses each day.2-The bus schedule is flawless at MP. Little waiting and they …
Ecuador Road Trip Anyone...?!
Road Trip anyone...? Our 8 day adventure to Ecuador was highlighted by the 5 day, 4 night personalized road trip Adventure Life designed just for us. Everything I wanted to see and explore in the time I had available was granted; from the highlands and climbing on the earth's tallest active volcano (Cotopaxi), strolling along the Pacific Ocean …
Patagonia - To the end of the world and back
To the "end of the world" and back. My sister and I started the trip with a stay over in Buenos Aires before taking a flight to Ushuaia. Together we hiked and kayaked through Tierra del Fuego. We set foot on Cape Horn and an island inhabited only by penguins. Together, we sailed the Straits of Magellan; we learned about the history of …
Brian and I traveled to Mexico in 2011 and experienced the culture and cuisine.
Torres del Paine

Peru: Sacred Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

We share a passion for travel and seek destinations that are both off the beaten path and which offer a winning combination of great food, beautiful scenery, adventure and amazing …
Passport to Patagonia
What a breathtakingly beautiful area Patagonia is! It is a land of contrasts: with flat arid plains around Puerto Madryn and Peninsula Valdez and its penguin colonies and Estancias, to the awesome glaciers and otherworldly rock formations of El Calafate near the central western border of Argentina. At its southernmost tip are the enormous craggy …
Chile: Patagonia and Atacama
Patagonia W route trek and Atacama Desert extension: How to sum up this trip? Of course it was a chance to see spectacular scenery, meet new people, and experience a different culture. Being open to learning about such things, knowing I will also learn more about myself, is what makes adventure travel so rewarding. Also, it's way fun.
Machu Picchu By Train
July 2011 Trip to Peru: A fabulous Machu Picchu adventure and top shelf culinary tastebud explosion.
Awesome Argentina Tour
It began as a whim or perhaps more a dream as 3 long time colleagues acknowledged the effects of aging on their bodies but not on their spirits or sense of adventure. WE MUST do an adventure while we are all able and willing, they declared. So despite anxiety regarding care for their three aging mothers during this adventure, the dreaming and …
Bogota is a high altitude city with a 500+ year history involving Spain and Europe. Of interest is the fact that the Colombian government is the most friendly to the USA of all South American countries. We saw evidence of progress in many facets of the country. The flag represent their history and culture: yellow for the gold mined, blue for the …
Machu Picchu Pilgrimage+Manu+Lake Titicaca
Our idea for this trip started with seeing Machu Picchu, but soon, trekking the Inca Trail became integrally important to the purpose of the trip. Dave & I are in our late 50’s. We hike, just not real fast. We were extremely pleased at how personalized the entire trip was, especially the trek. We're also not much group tour people, but …
