My first few days in Peru have been great. I’ve stopped several times and thought to myself, “I can’t believe I’m actually here and doing this!” and then a big grin appears on my face.
Over the last several days I’ve wandered the streets of Lima and Arequipa, soaked in a lot of Inca history and also managed to visit the spectacular Colca Canyon – I was even lucky enough to see some cute Vicuñas, Alpacas and Llamas and the mighty Condor birds in the canyon! It’s been a pretty amazing time so far aside from a small bout of altitude sickness when I reached around 4900m. From watching colourful sunsets, being surrounded by mountains and volcanoes, bathing in thermal hot springs and sampling delicious Peruvian food… it’s been an eventful and fun few days.
Below are some pics from the last few days:
