Hi everyone, well it?s taken us a few weeks to get this site up and running but we?re finally doing it!! We?ve been away for over two weeks now, we had a great send off in London..very hard saying goodbye, so many brilliant times and memories but now very excited about the next leg of adventure!
We are currently in Cusco Peru, we?ve just come back from a 5 day trek to Machu Picchu, we did an alternative trek to the classic Inca trail, which is apparantly higher and much tougher!! It was the hardest trek either of us have ever done...mainly due to the altitude which reached nearly 5000m!! It was truely amazing though..the scenery was stunning and the sense of achievement when we finally reached Machu Picchu was fab!! My knees suffered a bit on the down hill and Kots?lung struggled with the altitude but we?re surprisingly fine today....ready for the next adventure!!
We leave for Arequipa tomorrow..we don?t actuallly have a set plan we?re just going with the flow. We?ve met loads of great people all with handy bits of travel advice for the places we are going to.
Good news is that my lost luggage finally arrived today...only 2 weeks too late!!! Was a pity I didn?t have my gear for the trek but I made do!!
We?ll add some of our photos on soon for you to browse through...keep in touch.
Ma and Kots
