Wandering in Valparaiso Chile

I will always remember our day in Valparaiso, Chile as a perfect example of how travel dreams don’t match reality – and that’s OK. I think I secretly thought Valparaiso would be even a tiny bit like the busy trade port described in Allende’s Daughter of Fortune – Panama Canal be damned. It wasn’t. There Read the Rest…

Souvenir Shopping in Chile

For a day that started with a 4am wake-up call to get to the El Tatio Geyser field at dawn, BigB was surprisingly still cheerful at our mid-afternoon souvenir shopping stop. This grandmother had knit the hat he’s modeling (which we bought) and didn’t need much persuading to join him in this photo. Read more Read the Rest…

Arriving in Arequipa Peru

Arequipa Peru is a beautiful city. But. We arrived at 6am. Our overnight bus from Cuzco was comfortable but the driver channeled Ayrton Senna all the way down the Andes. Let me tell you, staying asleep around hairpin turns at 90mph is just not possible. This princess is not good on no sleep. I was Read the Rest…

Sand-boarding Dudes in Chile

More fun in the desert on the outskirts of San Pedro de Atacama: Sandboarding. And yes, it is just as much fun as it looks – even if you do have to hike your board up the sand dunes for each ride down. Like what you’ve read and interested in reading more? Subscribe to the Read the Rest…

Death Valley Chile

Death Valley, Chile is just outside San Pedro de Atacama, high in the altiplano. The town, though pretty, is a pricey tourist trap but with views like this visible in the desert just a short drive from the town center, who could really complain?

Cusco City View

We hung out in Cusco for four days to give ourselves time to acclimatize to the altitude before doing the Inca Trail. At the time, I thought this was a little overkill but we decided it had to be done – as opposed to risking having one of our children come down with altitude sickness Read the Rest…

With the Llama Lady in Cusco

I’m not a fan of locals anywhere posing in “traditional” costume waiting to charge tourists for taking a photo, but when it results in a photo like this, well, maybe I don’t mind so much.

Nazca Lines

Some governments recommend against taking flights over the Nazca Lines because of concerns related to safety of the tiny twin-engine airplanes that do the trip. We found this out after doing our (very enjoyable) flight 🙂 Read more about our adventures in Peru here. Like what you’ve read and interested in reading more? Subscribe to Read the Rest…
