Peru (Pt. 4 – Machu Picchu)

Excursion time!  If you weren’t already aware, Peru is all about the hiking.  You are coming here so that you can climb some serious hills and check out some breathtaking views.  By no means do you need to be an avid hiker, or even need the boots and all, but just expect some long ass walks, that just go up and up.  And than expect to walk right back down afterwards.  So maybe hit the stairmaster a few times before you trip!  I know I did ~ cant hurt right!

Back to the city.  But this time we goin’ up!  To Cusco (not the Emperors New Groove), a city full of cobblestone streets, orange clay roofs, and surrounded by mountains.  Cusco is also the city where you get all the warnings about altitude and the effects it can have on your body so it was certainly intimidating when we arrived that we would all be out for a day or two because of altitude sickness.

Peru (Pt. 2 – Huacachina)

We journeyed out into the desert!  From Lima to Ica and than to Huacachina, a tiny little desert oasis.  It just a dinky resort spot (can’t really call it a town).  It has a pretty gross and green lake and surrounded by restaurants and hotels/hostels, but that doesn’t really do it justice because it was a super cool part of the city and a very unique area to stay in.

Peru (Pt. 1 – Lima)

Vaca Time!  Recently (2 months ago) myself, my boo, his best friend, and her boo set off for PERU!!!  And the best place to start in Peru is Lima, the capital of one of the most beautiful countries that I have a had the pleasure to see.  The sights, people, and food, and everything in between made for an incredible destination to visit.  And one that you seriously need to consider when thinking about your next trip.

The summer finally feels like its kicking off!  The sun is starting to make some wonderful appearances, and the festivals are going!  Plus the race for Summer Song is well underway, and while Despacito is an easy leader right now you never know who is gonna come out swinging with a real banger.  Maybe a disney starlet like Selena or Demi, or an all new face like Lauv!
