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. 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.
