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 fit to be tied – and my kids weren’t helping. Thankfully pigeons on the plaza can be just as attractive to a grumpy teen (with a backpack!) as a much younger child. It was hard not to smile at their exuberance, watching them made the day seem better already.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    Ugh. As much as I love traveling, lack of sleep and early mornings can really drag me under too. You’re right – it’s best if you just let the kids entertain themselves at these moments.
