The rest of Peru…

February 26, 2012

Ok, back to Peru. As a posse we left Nasca… Nick and Ivanka, Andre, Mark, Tim and myself. It wasn’t long till we also caught up to Daan and Mirjam too.

The road from Nasca to Cusco was described by our mechanic in Lima as his favorite in Peru. I could see why.
Daan, Mirjam, Tim and myself decided to stop in a nice spot to do a little bit of camping.

And the next day we headed to Cusco. Once we arrived we did a spot of marketing.

Our activities in Cusco involved seeing some old bricks (boring!) and much more fun, feasting


(best ceviche I have had)

We parted company with Daan and Mirjam – was great riding with them

Tim and I decided to take a long loop to go to Machu Pichu, and were rewarded with quite the ride.

Machu Pichu was quite enjoyable, which we shared with our 5,000 closest friends

It was more enjoyable however to freak everyone out by dancing like idjits around it.

Here I would part company with the rest of the crew as my bike needed love, in the form of new luggage (my former luggage had reached the point of dissrepair), and thanks to Giant Loop for getting it to me. No thanks to Fedex for it taking 10days longer than it should have.

Kerman, James and Tim did a ride around southern Peru

Peru was over and done with. Bolivia to come!

    Brilliant pictures so impressed! Did you actually motorbike up to machu pichu? That is so badass !! Love, love, love it!
    Love those fruit and wool pictures.. They would look so lovely framed ! Xox


    • haha – no, we didn’t ride all the way up to Machu Pichu, we rode as far as you could (about 9km away) and hiked the rest.

      The market in Cusco was quite incredible, and there were many photo opportunities in every corner.
