Today we say farewell to Lima – off to Arequipa, Peru


Apologies for the lack of posts. I have been keeping tabs of our adventures in a journal that I carry so I will be doing a bulk upload at some point. Which brings me to my next point, is there a way I can back-date WordPress entries?

So today, we’re off to Arequipa. Our Cruz del Sur bus leaves early afternoon on a 15hr bus ride across the beautiful Andes. As we were doing research, we stumbled upon this Lonely Planet forum thread & article which really gave us the hibby-jibbys. Hijacking? Assault? Stuff stolen?

As a ‘traveller’, I like to keep an open mind & not be swayed by such reports. After all, how often does hijacking happen? But having said that, I pray that everything goes well & that we are safe throughout our 3 month stint in this beautiful continent.

I hope these photos temporarily fill the void in my lack of posts.

Safe travels….

Our gracious host, Gustavo, who has opened his home to us. We found a listing on & he definitely lived up to the many rave reviews.
