The lost city

A travel blog entry by markjoy


16 days ago but lot's of kilometres we travelled since our last blog. We travelled from Montanita in one way to Cusco, Peru. First part was a busride of 36 hours, actually it went pretty okay.

Marching on to Machu Picchu

A travel blog entry by busbydawson2012


We thought Cuzco would be hard pressed to live up to the standards set by Arequipa, but it managed to surpass them. Despite the fact that it is a major tourist hub, and busloads of wealthier holidaymakers mingle with the usual backpacker horde, it manages to retain its charm and authenticity, absorbing the throngs without feeling overcrowded or …

In der Stadt der Inka

A travel blog entry by sonjamargarethe


Mit Peru fuehle ich mich deshalb stark verbunden, weil wir es in der Schule in der 9. Klasse ziemlich genau durchgenommen haben, im Erdkundeunterricht als Beispiel eines Entwicklungslandes. Damals klang das alles noch so abstrakt. Und ist es noch immer. Indigene Bevoelkerung - Lima mit Hafen - Cusco in den Anden - Amazonasgebiet, Brandrodung und …

Cusco, Peru (11/25/2010-11/26/2010)

A travel blog entry by samuel.dewey


I left for the airport at 7:00am. Milton, the Chilean whom had stayed in my dorm and whom I shared a cab with, helped me buy my airline ticket at the airport. We each had flights to Cusco around the same time, so we waited in the terminal together. I was surprised to find out that he spoke fluent English. He had actually lived in the U.S. and …

Cities of the Incas

A travel blog entry by mogandfrog


We arrived in Cuzco early in the morning and took a taxi to Hostal Frankenstein, a wonderfully quirky place full of Frankenstein paraphernalia and run by a friendly German chap. After settling in, we ventured out into the cobbled streets of Cuzco and quickly fell in love with the place. It is similar to Cuenca in Ecuador but even nicer. It is …

    Ludwig made our stay very friendly and he was very helpful with all advises to get everywere. Every evening we enjoy the fireplace with a cup of warm tea in our hands. The rooms are simple, clean and safe.

    At this guest house I was welcomed and treated like a friend. The place is all decorated in a horror themed style with a hint of humour, and has many pets. I hope Martin the Iguana is well! This is the place for you if you are looking for a warm and friendly guest house with a twist!
