Inspiration For My Peru Trip
My boyfriend Luis is Peruvian, we came to Lima for the Christmas Holidays. He knew I would miss the winter atmosphere for that time of the year and suggested that I go to Huaraz in the high mountains of Peru.
How We Planned For The Trip
We planned the Huaraz Trip about 10 days in advance: booking the Bus Trip, the Hotel and the Trip with the agency. We packed mountain type backpacks and warm clothes, as well as durable hiking shoes.
We went from Panamá to Lima and then from Lima to Huaraz. We spent 3 nights 4 days in Huaraz and for both trips we went by a night bus which was really efficient. (8hours from Lima)
Food Items You Can’t Miss Out On In Peru
Everything is amazing about Peruvian Food! But for a Mountain kind of trip, I would recommend to try : Emoliente & Hot Wine Beverages in the Streets, Cuy meat, Papa a la Huancaina (Potatoes in a very typical sauce)
Favourite Memory From The Trip
Snow falling at our arrival to a Refuge at 4700m on New Year's Eve.
