Hi all,
Have only 2 weeks to go before a month long trip to peru and bolivia, and due to hectic events at home have done little so far on the research front besides buy some guide books, and book flights to Lima...
Am now going to be travelling solo with my 5 year old son, so slightly nervous about that, especially as my last 3 trips encountered being mugged, busting my thumb, and being electrocuted crazy.gif , lets hope that is my 3! Will be backpacking so not looking for flash hotels.
Have had some help from Kathryn in another forum topic but wondered if anyone has time to share their pearls of wisdom on the best route to take.
My main interests are indigineous peoples (& their children), homestays, wildlife, nature, off the beaten track less interesting to me are cities, touristy tours.
Most info I have seen regarding Machu picchu seems to have been written at the beginning of Feb and quote 7 to 8 weeks before the railway is open again, so as my trip is march 12th to April 13th am not banking on it being open, but guess may need to keep that as a last minute option, though it is not imperative.
I will also post in the Bolivia section as many friends have said that was their favourite south american country.
Not sure what the coast line is like but would like if possible to end up on a chill out beach for a few days before flying back to the rat race.
I really would appreciate any must sees, itineraries etc plan mostly to bus, but not adverse to maybe one internal flight to stretch my time there to the max,
Thanks in advance, Trees
