Best of 2017 Places, Experiences, & Food

I still owe you many blog posts from each place I visited in 2017 but thought I would highlight my top experiences and food with you today. I can’t believe I went to 11 countries and over 45 cities!! It was an amazing year. Don’t get me wrong; there were many struggles but the good outweighed the bad. I’m not stopping anytime soon. Just in case you never read the reasons why I’m traveling check out this blog. If I’m being honest, one reason missing from that blog post is I was totally sick of the hustle.… Read more

The most vegan-friendly place in Peru

Now we jump back in time to the beginning of my trip in Peru. After spending a wonderful few days in Lima I flew to Cusco to relax a bit before my yoga retreat started. When I arrived I felt pretty dizzy and had a headache, but walked down to Green Point to have some food. It was a really good menu of the day with a salad bar, juice, soup, main dish and dessert for about $4. Later after eating there again and having a tummy ache, I would read and talk to locals that their food is known for leaving people feeling not so well, so I opted to try other places after that.… Read more

Paracas: beaches, islands & National Reserve

After a thrilling time in the desert we continued north to Paracas, a little beach/fishing town with a beautiful natural reserve. I didn’t have high expectations but the fact that they had a restaurant with a vegan menu excited me. Things were off to a rocky start when we arrived at night and I couldn’t find my hotel. I had it marked on Google Maps but the street it was on didn’t go through to the main street. Walking in circles dragging my suitcase, I asked the hotel that was planted right where the through street was suppose to be but they had no clue.… Read more

A Visit to the White City and the Desert

We continue our journey with Peru Hop to Arequipa or better known as the White City. It’s a beautiful place with many hidden courtyards and stunning architecture. We had to take one more overnight bus and arrived here at 5 am. I booked a shared room at Los Andes Bed & Breakfast. It’s not really a hostel and was lacking in communal spaces but it was so nice with comfortable single beds (no bunk beds!) at only $8 a night with a shared bathroom and simple breakfast.… Read more

A week along the Gringa Trail with Peru Hop

My travel blogs are going to be out of order because honestly I can only write when inspiration strikes and I had such a fun experience on Peru’s “gringo trail” I wanted to get it down before I forgot. I still owe you a blog about the amazing yoga retreat I led in the Sacred Valley of Peru, which I promise is coming soon. After the retreat I was trying to figure out what to do with the rest of my time in Peru.… Read more

Lima is not like South American at all

I’m going to jump around a bit here. I owe you a blog about London and Berlin from my summer trip, but I want to get Lima on the blog while it’s fresh in my mind. When I started my three months in South America in Lima this month I didn’t know what to expect. My only experience with this continent was in Medellin. So when I spent three days in Lima I wasn’t expecting it to feel like a gloomy Los Angeles.… Read more
