Finding myself on Colca Canyon

January 24, 2017
Hiking Colca Canyon, Arequipa, Peru - Adventure Travel

Spending a weekend hiking a canyon and sleeping in a hut with a group of strangers is not something I would have ever thought I would be interested in. But something important I learned about myself throughout the horrific year of 2016 is that Iโ€™m not the same person I was three years ago. And so despite last year being an incredibly tough year, it needed to happen,…

Living like a local on Lake Titicaca … trying say that three times at super speed. Lake Titicaca is big-ass lake shared by Peru and Bolivia. To get to the Lake from the Peruvian side you have to travel to Puno, which I did from Cusco and it was a rather pleasant seven hour drive (one of my shorter bus journeys of my South America trip, would you…

November 11, 2016

If your headed to Peru to do Machu Picchu, the inca trail or Rainbow mountain, your more than likely to be headed to Cusco first. So a little tip: make sure you add on a few extra days to actually explore this wonderful city. It’s a vibrant and beautiful place and a must do for any backpacker visiting this part of the world. I was Cusco bound on…

I didn’t make a baby, but I did make it to Machu Picchu

November 4, 2016

There are currently babies flying out of everyone I know. I guess I’m at that age. Relatives, friends, randoms I friended on Facebook six years ago after meeting at a gig, yup, everyone’s starting a family. But I’m not. As I’m not a mother, nor am I pregnant, I can’t say I know how it feels to be in that position, the position of holding your little bundle…
