Peru 2017

An amazing country, with fabulous people at the perfect time of the year (well November is at least the best month to escape the onset of winter in the Northern Hemisphere).

Over two full weeks we have discovered – or rediscovered – so many of Peru’s highlights.


As much as I truly love Peru, I have never been won over by its massive, sprawling capital. A city of that size should not exist in an environment with virtually no water, but for a day the city does offer impressive coastal views from its high cliffs.

The best view of Lima is when flying away 😉

The real reason one travels to Lima (aside from simply getting to Peru) is to eat. Peruvian cuisine has taken its rightful place among the greatest culinary environments in the world. Those who arrived early, enjoyed delicious meals and of course drank Pisco Sours.

After a jovial night in the big city, we transferred back to the airport for our flight up to the highlands.
