When planning your trip to Peru, Lima is one of those places that will most likely get on your itinerary just because you fly in there. It is not really promoted by travellers as a fun city, nor as a safe one. A lot of stories about theft and unsafe taxis do the round and […]

Although the Sacred Valley in Peru is mainly known for the different Inca sites scattered around, the Andean villages in this area are definitely worth a visit, or more. Pisac, only 33 kilometers from Cusco, is one of these villages. Besides a visit to the Inca fortress Intihuatana close to the village, its Sunday market […]

When the height hits in, the question is will you do it, or better put, are you able to do it. Travelling in a mountainous region is no joke, at least if you are speaking about the Cordillera Blanca, Peru and many other regions in Peru and Bolivia. It is surely different in the European […]

It is definitely not an everyday activity for us to jump from a night bus  on to an early morning flight without any reservations, but sometimes things are arranged quickly and then you just go for it. And so we suddenly sat on one of these little Cessnas to fly over the Nazca desert to […]

Coming down to the coast from the Peruvian highlands is in a way a relief. Don’t get me wrong, the Peruvian Andes and its hidden valleys and cities are beautiful and worth all efforts visiting. The height is, however, something hard to get used to and simply made life different and slower for us.

It has now crossed my mind on several occasions here in Peru. Women here are strong, by far more dominant compared to their male counterparts and said to rule the household. And this reminded me of the initial project I had in mind for this trip and the start of it all. That one night […]

Imagine being dependent on reeds only to build your house at the middle of the highest navigable lake in the world and build up a whole community this way. This is exactly what the Uros did when they fled the mainland out on the Lake Titicaca near Puno in today’s Peru. Initially living at boats […]
