Peruvian Preview

Ach! I really wanted today to be a triple posting day to make up for the dearth of posts over the last few days. The three posts I had in mind were: 1) Summary of Belize with Travel Tips, photos, and videos; 2) Recap of Khang and Kathryn’s wedding in Indiana; and 3) The Peruvian Preview and my Packing List (this post). Unfortunately, last minute preparations took a bit longer than expected, but I have a ton of travel time ahead of me so hopefully will get at least the text done for the other two posts 🙂

My current plans for Peru are:
– to arrive in Cuzco on 7/30,
– check into the Pariwana hostel I booked for 2 nights to fight off altitude sickness
– book a 3 or 4 day tour to Macchu Pichu
– avoid catching any other ailments
– play everything else by ear

Current Peruvian Trip Status:

    Flight status: checked in
    Carry-on Bags: two.
    Spanish level: poor.
    Departure Time: too soon.
    Total Travel Time: BRUTAL. (~24 hours door-to-door ORD -> TPA -> MIA -> LIM -> CUZ)
    Currently feeling – restless, slightly terrified, but excited.
All my stuff for 2-weeks in Peru!
