Colombia & Peru, Where The Adventure Is Reaching The Next Destination
About this blog
Sometimes it's the journey, sometimes it's the destination and most times, it's both; an enthralling journey across central and northern Peru, Colombia and one of the last great frontiers - The Amazon. From the Andes to the Amazon, the Pacific to the Caribbean, this fascinating adventure began in Peru, an incredibly beautiful country with one of the richest biodiversity's on earth; from its arid coastline, to the towering peaks of the Andes, to the awe-inspiring sounds of the Amazon Jungle. Along the way I was treated to breath-taking scenery, warm-hearted hospitality, charming indigenous communities, villages lost in time, vibrant markets, wonderful architecture, a vibrant music scene, a diversity of fauna and flora, and......... well, the list could go on and on. Though the lasting impression and a striking feature will be the Colombian and Peruvian people - who are a tourist attraction within their own right; their sheer generosity and overwhelming friendliness typifies this captivating part of the world, and was a joy to be a part of.
This compelling journey is made a little more interesting as I will be hitch-hiking between destinations - hence the name of the travel blog. I shall also compile hotel reviews and research the latest transport options to and from the destinations that I visit - although the rates and departure times may have changed by the time you read this.
