Huacachina, tourist trap

Our bus from Nazca was absolutely fine, taking a mere two and a half hours to reach Ica. Here a taxi driver 'helped' us with our bags and took us the 5 kilometres to Huacachina. Huacachina is a little tourist trap; a very small place, filled with hotels, surrounded by sand dunes. We'd wanted somewhere to chill out for a couple of days. On the face of it, Huacachina seemed perfect. We'd read that Huacachina was in fact party ...

Our bus from Arequipa was lengthy. Peru is a big country. It was meant to take 10 hours, though it ended up as 12 hours after we stuck a traffic jam after a head on collision between two trucks on an otherwise impassable road. Unfortunately we don't know if the drivers were okay, but the scene was a mess when we did get past. This was on the road by the coast - we had reached the Pacific Ocean!

To make up for it, ...

What a long and exhausting day.  My Garmin Vivofit claims that I took 22, 433 steps today!  And we spent the morning on a bus driving around to the touristic highlights.  I am not really sure what all we saw, but it was a lot. Our first stop was to take a tram up the mountain side to Victoria Park. This train dates back to like 1850 or something or so. It lasts 10 minutes and it goes straight up the mountain. I am sure it was a 45 degree angle or more. Straight up. It made every ...

Our overnight bus from Puno was something of a disaster. We were told that we would be picked up from our hostel in Puno at 9.30pm. This didn't actually happen until 10.30pm. We were very, very tired from a full day and early start. En route to the bus station, Jayna managed to lose the lock and key to her bag, and the pac to her pac-a-mac. The bus was at 11pm and was at least a cama bus, though unfortunately the journey was not long enough to ...

... Puno and were happy to take recommendations, and got ourselves a free lift to the hostel. This turned out to be very nice and reasonably priced, so we went with it. As soon as we arrived it started to rain heavily. Jayna stayed in and felt unwell, and Ken went out into the storms to explore Puno a little.

On Thursday 2nd, we had an early start and were picked up for our trip to the Reed Islands. These are floating islands ...
