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.

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.

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.

Artisan Pottery Peru

Although we went to Nazca, Peru to see the famous Nazca Lines, we also visited the workshop of a local artisan and BigB had a one-on-one lesson in making and painting pre-Incan style pottery.

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…

Even though I’d been avoiding this since I wasn’t sure how other vacationers would appreciate being paired with my sometimes cantankerous children, it worked out fine.

Colca Canyon Arequipa Peru With Kids

When I asked Renzo, our friendly host at Arequipay Backpackers about the 3-day Colca Canyon hike advertised on their Tours board, he was surprised. He encouraged us to consider the one-day visit to the canyon rim advising that the trek to the bottom of the canyon would be too much for our boys.
