That's right, Eric and I are jetting off to Peru next week! It's always been a dream of ours to visit Machu Picchu, so when Jet Blue opened a new airline to Lima with some great deals last year, I immediately jumped at the opportunity. This will be Eric and I's first time traveling out of the country together...and Eric's first time out of the United States!
Needless to say, we are beyond excited. It's been a stressful process trying to plan a trip for two abroad. We've been running around the last two weeks trying to get all of our vaccines, coordinate where we're staying, and loading up on personal supplies of toilet paper for the trip (rumor has it most public restrooms don't have their own supply). Not to mention neither of us have spoken a lick of Spanish in at least 5 years.
Despite the stress, we've had a ton of help planning out our activities from one of our hosts, and I'll even get to reunite with a friend from high school who recently moved to Peru! I'm so, so excited to think that in a week I'll be trekking with llamas, hiking ancient ruins, and exploring new-to-me cities.
Have you been to Peru? Please let me know if you have any tips for us!
