Because we're from Holland we are used to a little bit of rain. Well, eventually, ... Continue Reading

It was my first time to Peru and I don't speak Spanish - as a result I was often confused about logistics and unclear about what was an "add-on" to the experience and what was included. Hindsight 20/20 I wish I ... Continue Reading
