Peru Trip 2013

I never meant for this to turn into a travel blog. It’s hard to write about my life without all the travel stuff though. Travel has been & continues to be such a significant part of my adult life.

I’ve been to Tokyo, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, India, Cuba, Brazil, Argentina, Hawaii, Mexico, England, France, Italy, Brussels, Amsterdam, Berlin, Hungary & all over the US & Canada. I’ve just returned from three weeks in Peru.

I went with a few friends. We saw places. Met people. Played with pet monkeys in the Amazon jungle. Hung out with talking birds. Had some adventures. Went to high elevations & suffered from altitude sickness. We checked one of the wonders of the world “Machu Picchu” off the bucket list. The last day I went paragliding in Lima which was exhilarating. Every time I do one of these trips I learn more about myself & the world I live in. More importantly, I learn about the world beyond my door step. It makes me both appreciate what I have in Canada & also see how I take things for granite. It gives perspective.

I’ve always felt that one of the best things a person can do is travel, see the world. Not just all-inclusive resorts & comfy cruises (although they certainly have their appeal) but do the more challenging trips & SEE the world.

Photo’s & video’s can not duplicate the experience of being there in the flesh but maybe it will inspire you to go on your own adventure.

Hiking around in the middle of god-knows-where in Peru tripping on Mescaline. Probably perfectly safe.


I made it to the top of this mountain so I guess I wasn’t too high.


Machu Picchu, obviously.




Cusco, Peru…a cute town with some seriously old buildings. Like older than Betty White.


A nice artsy shot, if you’re into that sort of thing. Selfie in Pisac, Peru. A tiny hippie-friendly town on route to Machu Picchu.



These fucking birds never shut up.



Pic taken just before one monkey chomped the other ones head off & spat it at me.
Okay, that didn’t happen. The monkeys were almost as friendly as Canadians. Super sweet.



The bugs in the amazon jungle were ridiculous. I have loads of pics of them but I’ll just add this one because it’s also a very lovely photo of me.
