Around Arequipa.

Hiya Pals,

When you ask people their favourite place in Peru, you’ll often get Cusco. For me, Arequipa holds that place. Those who follow the “Gringo Trail” of Peru, Arequipa is typically the second city for tourists. Its rich architecture, wonderful history and the fact it’s surrounded by three volcanoes make it one of those places I could see myself accidentally staying there for 2-3 weeks, if not longer.

Buggin Out in Huacachina

Hi Pals,

If you know anything about Huacachina, you’ll think sand dunes. Sand dunes after sand dunes after sand dunes. Originally, Peruvians believed that the waters had healing powers and would use the waters to heal their bodies. These days, it’s mostly for tourists to go and sand buggy. If you’ve got the time, I do recommend it.

 

Here are some things to do with your time in Huacachina, including day trips.

Leaving Lima

FYI: This post is currently being converted to the new editor and may give html issues. apologies for anything that’s outta wack.

Hi Pals,

I’d like to talk about Lima. I mean, it is Peru’s Capital City and it’s also one of the main cities people start their trip in.
It’s a city you need to learn to love, a lot like Nicolas Cage films actually.
It’s also one that has different districts and reputations depending on what stories you hear, people you meet. Leaving Lima, you’re also able to stop in at a lot of nice little places as well along the way to either Cusco/Arequipa.

OSAKA

Hiya Pals,
Let’s talk all things Osaka.
Osaka is the second largest metropolitan area, making it busy,  busy, busy! Apart from the hustle and bustle, you’ll find castles, temples and gardens to get away from it all.
This post is made up of a visit in November 2017 and July 2018 (which explains the change of outfits!) Originally I’d only checked out Osaka for a day and when I returned I had 4 days here. I believe you should give Osaka a bit more time.

KYOTO

Hiya Pals,
Let’s talk all things Kyoto.
Kyoto has such a history of traditionalism in Japan, formerly the capital it’s filled with shrines, temples, gardens and palaces. This is one of the main reasons we chose Kyoto as a place to base ourselves for day trips.
