Machu Picchu

The first thing we did when we got to Cusco was book our trip to Machu Picchu. We booked a two day trip through our hostel, which included all transportation, hostel stay, entrance ticket and guide. On the second day in Cusco, we left in the morning and took a bus to a town called... Continue Reading →


Day 24-28: Iquitos

Iquitos is a very interesting city. It's the largest city not accessible by road, and has a population of around 500,000 people. This was a huge change of scenery from the places we'd been before. The change from secluded, quiet communities to a huge city with busses, hotels and an airport was an adjustment, but... Continue Reading →

Day 19-23: Puerto Miguel

The next 5 days were memorable to say the least. Firstly, in order to get from Nauta to our next destination Puerto Miguel, we took a two hour boat ride down the river. I don't usually like boat rides, but this was amazing. Stunning views of wildlife on the shores and great weather. When we... Continue Reading →

Also, the place had one shower which felt amazing. If this trip has taught me one thing already, it's to... Continue Reading →

‘Home’ Again…

So it's Friday and I've left home to come home again. If that makes sense. It's always so difficult to fly back to Birmingham, it's hard for others to understand. Anyway, I did have a wonderful time. Flying there on my own was a good decision. Here's some photos I took. Sigh.

5am At BHX

It's 05:46 and I'm sat in Pret with a croissant and an orange juice. Breakfast. My gate opens in an hour so I have some time to kill. Last night I downloaded season 2 of designated survivor ok Netflix so that should keep me occupied. I can't remember the last time I flew this early... Continue Reading →
