PERU TRAVEL DIARY

In my mind Perù was only Machu Picchu and Titicaca lake, little did I know about a county that left me speechless, the nature is breathtaking, unexpected and ever-changing , the food so fresh and tasty, bustling cities and cute little villages with the sweetest people (and alpaca).
These are the places I have visited: I landed in Lima then headed to Paracas to visit the Ballestas  islands, the Huacachina oasis, Nasca, flew over the Nazca lines,  the Colca canyon, Arequipa, Titicaca lake, Salinas Maras, Machu Picchu, and the stunning red valley and rainbow mountain. Everything  in two weeks taking only local busses.
I planned this trip with Casa Yolanda, she booked all the busses and hotels and made for us a memorable trip. I couldn’t recommend her more, if you are interested this is her mail casayolanda@libero.it
