Like a lot of countries, we didn’t really have a lot of preconceived notions before heading into Peru. One thing we did know was that the country had an abundance of beautiful mountains to explore, and we certainly weren’t disappointed.
Visiting these floating islands in the middle of the largest lake in South America was one of the most special experiences of the whole trip for me. We made a great video of how these floating islands are constructed, and have tons of amazing pictures of these beautiful people and their homes. Last stop before Bolivia!
True to our new mindsights of city living being something we no longer avoid, we made sure to spend some time in the bustling cities of both Arequipa and Cusco. We went in with little expectations or prior knowledge, which we’ve learned is definitely the best way to visit any new place though it’s not always easy. We spent more time than we had planned in both of these beautiful towns, about five days in each, and as always we barely scratched the surface of what they had to offer!
