Isn’t it just gorgeous? Continue reading
We started the day again with breakfast on the balcony looking out over the beautiful square.
After having our fill of cheese, bread, cereals and fruit, we set off for the market.
There is an amazing sight to behold in the Colca Valley.
Aside from the incredible landscapes, there is something else to steal your gaze.
We awoke the next morning to a gloriously sunny day and enjoyed breakfast out on the hotel’s balcony
My parents had booked up a personalised, private trip with Amazonas Explorers to take us into the Colca Valley for 3 days. They were familiar with the company as they had used them before on a previous trip to Peru, but within the Sacred Valley.
I know, I know, it’s like the 6th of December, and this post is very delayed…..
I’ve been super busy organising for my trip in a couple of weeks and my posts seem to have fallen further and further down the list of things to do. I promise to improve! Really, I do!
So without further ado, here is the lowdown on what happened in November…
Arequipa is a city in the south of Peru, and it should definitely be included in your itinerary when you come to visit the country. It is just as deserving as a trip to Cusco or to the northern beaches.
It used to be the capital of Peru for a time during the 1800s once Peru had declared independence from Spain, and the historic centre is a UNESCO world heritage site.
The beautiful white stone used to construct many of the buildings here is just absolutely stunning, but we only caught a brief glimpse on our arrival as the sun was setting. However, we were greeted by this view as we checked into our hotel for the night.
An amazing sight and such a perfect welcome!
Happy Halloween everybody!
Well, it’s a little late, but never mind!
How did you celebrate? Did you dress up as a skeleton or the walking dead, or did you stay in and watch scary movies? Did you eat all of the Halloween sweets you bought for the trick or treaters, like I did (oops!)? Whatever you did, I hope you had a ton of fun!
This month has been pretty quiet on the eating and outings front, as I’m saving both money and my appetite for when my parents come and visit in November. So excited! It’s been nearly a year since I’ve seen them, so I can’t wait!
So, because of this, you’ll notice the ‘Eating’ section is missing for October, and that the ‘Watching’ section has more than doubled in size!! I had to keep myself occupied somehow…..
