... chunk of the day but if I wasn't sleeping I was probably getting sick. One of our leaders, Taylor, came into the room to see how I was feeling and I was sitting on my bed eating Pringles and crying. He went to a naturopath before coming down to guide the tours of Peru so he gave me some pills and grape seed extract to help me, and they did help, just not quite enough. There was a point yesterday where I would drink water and it didn't even have enough time ...

Nasca to Arequipa

... Mike and I had no probs. The lines were amazing. It was hard to take pictures as it was quite glary, however the pics we ended up with were awesome. It's not really known what the lines were for but it's likely that they were created for religious and ritualistic reasons. We then headed to Chauchilla cemetery. It's in the desert. There were about seven tombs which are on display with actual mummies still in situ. The graves that are viewed were dug up by grave ...

A temple, an Alpaca and an old Penis

... food and wifi. Unfortunately I was so tired from Cusco I pretty much zonked the whole journey. Arequipa rivals Cusco as Peru's 2nd city and in my two days here I can see why. Surrounded by countryside, hills and volcanoes, this charming city has a more relaxed feel than Lima but carries enough hustle and bustle to make an afternoon stroll interesting. The Free Walking Tour, especially for gringos was a perfect way to see the lesser seen parts of the city and a trip to the Santa ...

... old. When it was first opened, the nuns were selected from the city's most affluent families, and the ladies did not have to change their lifestyle much at all upon entering the convent. The scandalous living came to a halt when a strict mother superior took over after 3 centuries of debauchery, but the monastery remained closed to the public until 1970. Santa Catalina is designed to be a 'city within a city', so the huge, sprawling monastery is full of charming ...

From Hot Sand To Hot Springs

A travel blog entry by cladd


Buenas tardes! We're writing from the beautiful colonial city of Arequipa, Peru's second biggest urban area, deep in the canyon-scarred south of the country. We left Paracas five days ago on a bus headed for Ica, a surprisingly big and bustling city considering the forbidding desert in which it lies. A further short taxi ride took us to our planned destination, the idyllic oasis of Huacachina, a gem of green in the otherwise barren landscape. Thanks to the high ...

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.
