Fun in Baños

A travel blog entry by fionamary


... the very narrow road so we could go back to save it - Danny unhooked its tail from the barbed wire while the cow looked at him as if to say "what are you doing you strange man? Get off my tail". We all found the entire situation highly amusing, I don't even think its tail was stuck! I was in disbelief that the driver actually turned the bus around for us to do this! Anyway, after this surreal event some people went to the natural hot springs (I stayed at the ...

Good bye forest, hello tourist town

A travel blog entry by benschulz01


I really didn't sleep well the last night in the jungle. The rain stopped but the wind blew hard all night. The hut had two private rooms. I occupied one and Patricia, a dentist from Australia, had the other. Later on in the day she asked me if it felt like the structure swayed in the night...it felt like it.

We got up to the top of casa del arbol where a guy built a crazy swing for his kids which has now become a tourist attraction! We headed onto the swing but our photos weren't very good because in the ...

The sea, the sea!!

A travel blog entry by traliela

When we left Cusco, we decided to leave the Andes finally behind us. We were headed for the coast but first stopped in Huacachina, in the desert region of Peru. Huacachina is a tiny village that comes right out of a cartoon, since it's located at an oasis surrounded by magnificant sand dunes. Since it's so small we didn't stay more than one night, but we couldn't leave before experiencing the dunes in a nervewrecking buggyride. Our buggydriver took ...
