Salkantay trek day 5. Machu Picchu The big day. The cherry on top of the beautiful lakes, mountains, jungles and experiences we took in getting here. Machu Picchu. The day started wet and cloudy as we began hiking at 5am, and continued to be cloudy
Welcome. I don’t use this much blog anymore, but there is still some good content here from back in the day, and I still travel a lot. Now though I just share on my Facebook and Youtube channels and then share that content here.
Salkantay trek day 4 Day 4 was quite an intense hike. Starting again at 6am, this time it was raining even before we began our walk, but not very hard fortunately, just hard enough to make some decent mud. Less than an hour in we
Salkantay trek. Day 3 Another very early start and on the trail at 6am. Now seemingly at the bottom of the valley, most of the trail this day was flat with only little ups and downs as we walked along a thin mountain path with
Salkantay trek. Day 2 The day started with a wake up at 5am after little to no sleep for me and a few others. Fortunately we were woken up by the guides at our door with a steaming hot cup of coca tea (helps with
We've been in Cusco about a week and the last few days have been a treat for the senses with the lead up to Easter. We have had some great meals, and some terrible meals (the local market ceviche might have caused some stomach issues).
Great day of sightseeing near to Cusco. Yesterday we did a tour and it was pretty terrible, today definitely made up for it. 7am start and 7pm finish. A long day which started at Chinchero, a Spanish church beautifully painted inside, but built on the
With all the travelling around and new stuff to see, I forgot to share part 2 of our time in Colombia. Still have to make the Lost City hike video as well, they are mounting up! Colombia Part 2: Paragliding Roldanillo, Salento and Exploring All
Great day wandering around Cusco. The owner of our hotel told us where to find a great local place to eat and it was awesome, and cheap! My two favourites. After that we mainly just strolled around, soaking in this beautiful city surrounded by mountains
One of the things I love doing when travelling is finding local gyms. Whether in Israel, Morocco, Colombia or Peru, people are always looking for the burn! Today's session was down a backstreet, three stories up, surrounded by crumbling buildings, and filled with equipment which
Well that was a hell of a journey! After a chilled day strolling in the Nazca market and fighting off some light food poisoning, we jumped on a 15 hour night bus towards Cusco. Unfortunately the bus service we chose wasn't great (Civa). Not very
Great couple days. travelled from Lima to Paracas, moving through incredibly dry desert and sparce population. Up early in Paracas to jump on a boat to the Ballestas islands which are teeming with life! Sea lions galore, penguins and more birds than you can imagine.
What a day. Started with surf lessons where as it turns out I'm a natural, standing up and surfing on the first go! 😁 Fun to try something different and new for both of us. Then after a quick bite it was straight to the
First day in Lima, Peru, mostly about eating of course. Started with the best sandwich I have ever had at a famous local spot called La Lucha Sangucharia. Chicharron, sweet potato and onions! Then off to a local market to have seafood next to the
And that’s it for Colombia! Long day of travel again and about to board our second flight from Medellin to Lima. Night has fallen and the rain is hammering down. Should be there by midnight. Adios Colombia and thanks for the memories. Link to original
And we're back from the Lost City! Spoiler alert, we found it… Day 1 From Santa Marta we jumped in an off road vehicle and made a 2 hour journey into the foot hills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. A briefing with our new
Today we head out to the jungle! Going on a 5 day hike to The Lost City. I am assuming there will be no cell service but these days who knows 😁. Santa Marta was ok for a stopping point but I can see why
Our first day at the beach today. I think Mexico spoilt me for beaches as nothing quite compares, but still nice to be in the water and we found a pretty quiet spot. I am also wondering if I’ll ever not make the mistake of
That was a long couple days of travel. Today alone we got on our first bus at 7am ( much to the annoyance of people going to work who couldn't get past our giant paraglider bags) to the airport. Then on a plane to Bogota,
