By the time you read this, I’ll already be gone. Destination: South America. Where to exactly? Peru, with a smattering of Bolivia. HELL TO THE YES.
Liebling and I will be spending two weeks exploring, and I am excited. After spending the summer in Chile, Honduras, and Guatemala, I have been aching to touch down on Latin American soil. There’s something about the culture, the people, and the language that stirs me, that brighten my mood, that lights my fire.
Our RLF (Ridiculously Long Flight) via Air France will take us from London to Paris at the crack of dawn, then from the city of lights to the land of the Incas. We’ll land in Lima, Peru’s capital city, approximately 16 hours after beginning our journey in London. The flight will be long and tedious, I’m sure. But something tells me it’ll be worth it.
Our plan is to spend two nights in Lima, then fly down to Cuzco where we will take the train up to Macchu Picchu, which I’m certain will be as wild and wonderful as all the pictures make it out to be. My friend and travel idol, a Lady in London, was just there last week and took this stunning photo. You can pick your jaw up from the floor any time now.
After that, we will probably go to the hilariously named Lake Titicaca, then cross the border to hang out in Copacabana- the one in Bolivia, not Brazil. And then after that? Not too sure, which admittedly, adds to my excitement.
I’ve decided that these two weeks I would try to take a break from the internet, and as such I’m not bringing my laptop along. I feel like I’m too obsessed with the internet and social media on the whole, and this trip is the perfect opportunity to step back and allow myself to fully absorb the Peru/Bolivia experience. While this “unplugging” means that the South American updates on this blog will be spotty, I’ve scheduled a bunch of posts to appear in my absence. The plan: a new feature over the next week where I post one photo each day. These photos will consist of some of my most memorable travel moments.
That way you can relive my travel memories while I make new ones!
Have you ever been to South America? If not, is it on your travel radar? Why or why not?
