After almost four month in South America it was time to get to my last destination – Lima. I‘ve heard different things about Peru‘s capital. Most people said that there was not too much to do and to see, but there were also some who loved it.

After more then a month it was good to be back on the beach again.
But before that, there was this 20 hour journey from Cusco to Paracas with a stopover in Ica, where I had lunch.

After some days in at a lower altitude, I crossed the Andes again for my next destination: Cusco, at 3400m.
Already heard, that it should be a nice city, with lots of things to do and see and a chilled atmosphere, I was looking forward for my time there.

First I wanted to do Colca Canyon, which was a six hour bus ride away from Arequipa, on my own, but as I’ve heard, that doing all the organization through the hostel was almost the same price, I decided to do it that way. Continue reading Colca Canyon – the second deepest Canyon in the world
In the late evening I arrived in Arequipa and shared a taxi with some american guys into downtown to go into my hostel.
As I didn‘t sleep too much in Bolivia (always between 4-6 hours), it was time to get a longer sleep. That was until midday the next day. The town itself was quite similar to Sucre in Bolivia. Very relaxed and nice weather.

These three days should by my highlight in Bolivia.

After the shock with my almost lost backbag, I arrived in Sucre at my hostel and made my way into town. It was much more relaxed and cleaner then La Paz and also the weather was much better due to the lower altitude. Continue reading Sucre – the white city of Bolivia
After two days in crazy La Paz I decided to go to Sucre. It was smaller and only at 2800m, so it was quieter and much nicer. Continue reading Road to Sucre – back to normality
