What’s your go-to brunch dish?
There’s something so relaxing about beach walks and the sea air.
Last weekend we headed down to our old stomping ground in Punta Hermosa and couldn’t resist taking an early morning stroll around the bays (Señoritas and Caballeros) like we used to. Continue reading
Summertime is all about ceviche.
It’s the perfect dish for a hot summer lunchtime. It’s cool, refreshing and absolutely delicious and makes a way better alternative to a salad. Continue reading
Machu Picchu is one of the most amazing places I have ever visited.
Spending the day there was the most incredible experience and it’s something I would highly recommend you do when visiting Peru. It’s a new wonder of the world for a reason! Continue reading
Welcome to the bakery with the best cakes in Lima.

Is there anything better than afternoon tea?
Unlimited sandwiches, sweet treats and cups of tea is a joyful experience in itself, but having it with a Christmas theme goes another step further. Continue reading

Yes! December is finally here!
It’s not like I haven’t been thinking about and planning for Christmas for a while already, but I guess now it’s socially acceptable.

It also has some of the best green spaces in the district (apparently the district has won awards for its parks), and due to its location in the valley it even has the perfect climate to cultivate its own vineyards.
