Cute and quiet

Koala's was a little difficult to find at first but once the taxi driver opened his eyes and slowed down a little it was easy to spot on our third drive past. The hostel is quiet, clean and cheap. Very quiet, me and my friend where the only people there but that was probably due to the time of year. The staff were great, very friendly and chatty and made you feel welcome. I would have liked to stay longer.

... town, the Plaza de Armas. It has a small water fountain statue in the middle of the surrounding trees and plants which sits in front of the massive cathedral, Basilica Catedal de Arequipa. We walked through the centre garden square amongst all the locals who were feeding the hundreds of pigeons who hang out there. We then moved down to the Iglesia de la Compania and admired the intricate details of the architecture. Having seen the two main cathedrals, we made ...

... a bout 10 meters from us but apparently they were too ugly for chels to look at & she got bored. We made our way back with a few stops along the way with the last one being at some hot springs. A good way to end a long day. We went to dinner with some new friends we met on the tour, before getting on another overnight bus too Ica, Nasca and Hauyachina. A short stay but a beautiful place.

Hello from Copacabana, Bolivia! Cusco already seems like a very long time ago as I am in full swing of the "real adventure"! We left Cusco on Friday night ready to head to Arequipa. After a long journey of listening to endless snoring and bad Peruvian music we eventually arrived in Arequipa early morning. Arequipa is beautiful, in a very different way to Cusco. The plaza is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen - I had to ...

... traveled to Arequipa, to go on the trip to Colca Canyon, one of the deepest canyons in the world 4160m, over twice as deep as the Grand Canyon in the USA!
You can do it independently but we decided to see it on a tour to save all the messing about with local busses.

We got picked up at 2am from our hotel and headed 160km to the canyon. We got there early so we could ...

... was listed in the Lonely Planet. We get a lovely room for $39. This place has a lovely swimming pool. So we chill out big style around the pool. The water is like ice though so we don't do much swimming.Later in the day we have a coffee on a balcony overlooking the square. Colin has a traditional meal of spicy stuffed peppers and i have a Pork Chop.Tuesday ...
