Peru

beyond the beaten path

While Machu Picchu and all-things-Inca deservedly make South America’s third largest country a bucket-list staple, there are a world of Peruvian experiences beyond the ancient that are worth discovering. Surf the sun-splashed Pacific beaches;tour historic Spanish colonial towns; soar via zipline through the canopy of the world’s largest rain forest, the Amazon, covering nearly half of the country; and trek into the highlands of the cloud-topped Andes, the second highest mountain range in the world.

We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate.We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again—to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.
