The Ramblings Of A Pessimistic Arsenal Fan

Peru

A mixture of good and bad for us. We loved Arequipa and Barranco (near Lima) and obviously Machu Pichu and the Inca Trail was fantastic. But we were disappointed with Cusco, Lima and Nasca and didn’t really feel that welcome in some of the places we went.


Mother Nature Alters Our Route

The erupting volcano near Antigua forces us to travel through El Salvador to Honduras.


Good Food And Bad Food

We take a flight over the Nasca Lines which makes me feel more than a little bit queasy. Then it's off to Lima for a day or two which culminates in a culinary extravanganza before Lee flies home.


Biking, Trekking, Mummies And Riding

An incredible day's cycling in the mountains and two days of trekking leads us to Machu Picchu. Then it's off to Arequipa where we visit a convent and try out horse riding for the first time.


Bus Lies – The Exhausting Truth

Finally, the agony of South American buses gets to me and I pour forth with anger after another crippling journey from La Paz to Cusco via the lovely Copacabana on Lake Titicaca.
