ONE MORE DAY until we leave for Peru. This will be my first time in South America and I can’t wait to experience the food, culture, and beauty. Dan has spent time in Chile and Argentina, but we’ll be doing Peru for the first time together. Here’s our itinerary and I’d love some tips & favorite spots from those who’ve been. Specifically, Cusco things/ tips for hiking the trail. Please message me!
DAY 1: Hop on an overnight flight to Lima
2: Catch an early flight to Puerto Maldonado and a take a boat up the river to an eco lodge
3-4: Stomp around the jungle!
5: Head to Cusco to start adjusting to the altitude
6-7: Explore the Sacred Valley & Cusco
8-11: INCA TRAIL
12: Spend an afternoon in Lima before catching our flight home
I’m seriously freaking out about doing this hike since I’ve never done anything remotely close to it. Maybe I’m being a baby. I’ve heard mixed things about the difficulty level so I guess I’ll just have to experience it for myself. Thank the Lord Dan is incredibly patient and supportive and will be encouraging me the whole way. Nothing to fear 🙂 But keep us in your prayers anyway. My mom so kindly informed me that a tourist recently fell to his death
, so thanks for that MOM.
Wish us luck!!
