I slept very well on the bus last night. I was surprised, actually. The "seat beds" were great even though they didn't fold down all of the way. I was able to curl up into the seat when I wanted to change positions, which was nice - better than putting my feet up on the... Continue Reading →

I spent the morning walking around Puno. I was actually trying to find a bookstore so I could buy a book that would help to pass the time over the next couple of days in busses and planes. I wonder what the litteracy rate is in Peru. It was very challenging to find bookstores -... Continue Reading →

We woke up early because we had another island to visit. We took the boat to Taquile island. The lake was really rough this morning. The waves were huge and water was splashing over the windows and everything. I was really glad I don't get sick easily!! This island was much smaller than where we... Continue Reading →

There are about 11 of us on the two day tour of Lake Titicaca. We all got picked up from our various hotels/hostels around 8am this morning before heading off to the boat. When we got to the dock there were many shops selling bags of pasta, sugar, and flour. The families that we would... Continue Reading →

Today was pretty awesome. I love trains, so that is what made today particularly great. I found the train station with no problems at all really, which was a good thing. When I arrived and showed the staff my ticket, I was treated like royalty! Already, I was impressed. I was taken to a special... Continue Reading →

I had such a great day today!! I woke up a little earlier than I would have liked because my room was right beside the eating area. It ended up being okay, however, because I had a lot I wanted to see today!! Breakfast was typical, but I met a girl from Brazil traveling alone... Continue Reading →

What a day! I don't even know where to start! We got up this morning at 3am because the porters needed to take a train that only leaves once a day at 5am. So, we were up and had a quick breakfast before the porters ran off, down the mountain to catch their train. We... Continue Reading →

I can't believe the hike is over tomorrow! Despite the challenges it has been pretty awesome! Definitely an amazing way to end the year - and to start 2011! We got up bright and early this morning to a cloudy, cool day. I would have been totally happy if it stayed that way, however, about... Continue Reading →

Wow! I am exhausted. That was probably the hardest phisical thing I have ever done - like a million times harder than the 1/2 ironman! It doesn't even compare, really. So I was the first one awake and ready this morning. I always enjoy getting all ready in the silence of the morning when I... Continue Reading →

I woke up in the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in at 1am! I quickly organized everything and made it upstairs to a very basic breakfast. From here, I checked out and waited in LINE to make it onto the first bus. Upon arrival at the airport, we raced to the check-in counter.... Continue Reading →
