Travel Blogs from Arequipa


A travel blog entry by ryanandmeg


We arrived in Arequipa after a pretty painful bus journey from Puno. 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 …

Taking on the Colca Canyon Trek

A travel blog entry by ittakestwo


... bottom we were met by a huge bridge over a furious river curtting through the Canyon. We had a few moments to rest... Our legs were alredy on fire and it wsnt even half way. David, our guide was about 56 and probably weighed about 11 stone. All the way down he bounded ahead of everyone.

When we crossed over we were nearly at the villlage David grew up in. Twenty minutes more until lunch, thank the lord! The scenery changed from baron to quite lushious greenery. ...

A travel blog entry by huntingaurochs

Followed by descending into a canyon only to ascend again, can't help but feel the whole thing was a little pointless. The area was so dry and dusty Megan spent the whole first day coughing. However highlights included: blowing one's nose at the end of the day, buying a guinea pig to kill and ...


A travel blog entry by neelsolanki


The second largest city in Peru and you can understand why, it's very built up and modern driving into the centre but then twists and turns into a very colonial Spanish influenced city, with a gleaming piazza/central square. Myself and a fellow group traveller decided to get all cultural and took the opportunity to visit sites such the Convent of Santa Catalina, offering a brief ...
