The Sacred Valley of the Incas is something you definitely do not want to miss. If you are coming all the way to the highlands of Peru to see Machu Picchu, then it would be a shame to miss out on the wonderful Incan sites within the Sacred Valley which will really cement your understanding of Inca society.
If you have made it as far as Cusco on your travels, it is likely you will want to explore more of the area than just Machu Picchu (hopefully).
Holy Bucket List! We are in Machu Picchu. One of the wonders of the world, a marvel of Incan city planning, and probably the most famous attraction in Peru (if not all of South America).
I spent a fair bit of time in the laid back capitol city of Copenhagen back when I lived in Europe. I did a semester abroad in Aarhus, and used to commute via ferry to Copenhagen whenever I wanted to see a band or just needed a bit of city life.
Traveling through South America has been an interesting activity in managing altitude. Many of the places that are on our hit list are situated high in the Andes.
You would think that traveling from one major city in the north of Peru to another major city in the south of Ecuador would be easy.
So far we have visited four of the six countries we plan to explore on this particular tour of South America, and I have to say, Chile has been a clear favourite.
Last night, as we sat around our dinner table in Peru, we did some reflection about our favourite (and least favourite) places that we have visited so far.
Arequipa was our first stop in Peru. We arrived in the early evening after a marathon bus journey from San Pedro de Atacama.
Howdy! This is Agness and Cez of Etramping and today, we have for you a walkthrough on how you can easily slip into Turkey for either travel or business.
We are a week away from heading into South American country number 5, but so far, Chile has been my favourite.
Many many moons ago I went to Morocco with a girlfriend from Australia who I was on a student exchange with in Denmark.
We recently spent 5 weeks in Chile; starting in the southern reaches of Patagonia and working our way up to San Pedro de Atacama in the north before finally crossing into Peru.
San Pedro de Atacama is like nothing you have seen before. An entire town made of dusty red adobe. Complete with red dusty streets and a crystal clear desert sky.
Easter Island has been a huge bucket list item for me since for as long as I can remember. There was no way I was going to Santiago and not also going to Easter Island.
Now I know that saying you don’t like the food of a particular country can stir up a whole lot of emotions, but you know what.
We decided to use our 12 months of parental leave to the fullest, and we have hit the road for 8 months of my leave.
The quirky capitol of Vilnius captured my heart during a visit a few years ago. It’s a small city, and the old town can easily be explored over a weekend trip.
The picturesque town of Valparaiso. Perched on a steep hill, accessed by a number of rickety old funiculars, is a joy to wander around.
I am finding this 48 hours series more and more difficult to write. Probably because we have slowed down quite a bit as travelers recently (traveling with two kids under the age of 5 will do that to you!
