A travel blog entry by ryanandmeg

It was only 6 hours but the combination of bumpy roads and no air-conditioning in the sweltering bus made us extremely glad to get off. First impressions of the town were great, really pretty city of white buildings, surrounded by mountains and volcanoes, most notably the smoking …

Those birds didn't know what they ...

Exiting our time warp of 60´s cars and 80´s music we continue our voyage up the coast of Peru, arriving in the unassuming beach village of Huanchaco. Eminent for its consistent waves which roll over world class surfers and proximity to the world´s longest left hand break, Chicama, the village promotes a humble and relaxed atmosphere. A fisherman´s community whose unique fishing style in ¨Caballitos de Totora¨ (fishing boats made of dry reeds) and Ceviche ...
