Peruvian Selection – People, Landscapes, Churches & Ruins
Peru planning: I patched together an itinerary by working out a route which would connect the main places I was going to visit (Arequipa & Colca Canyon, Puno & Lake Titicaca, Cusco & Inca Trail) with coach journeys in-between, which would include stopping at various points of interest along the way. That meant that every 3 or 4 days I would be relaxing on luxury coaches, allowing for recovery time and alternative viewing opportunities from the intensive sightseeing trips and excursions I would be doing in and around the main attractions.
Most of the photographs below were taken during these journeys, except for the Colca Canyon photos, which were taken in a very tranquil atmosphere on the 1st of January – but the hike itself was demanding and a good opening activity to my time in Peru. The last photograph in this selection was taken in Arequipa. It’s always difficult to decide which shots to include, but these were the personal highlights for me.
Thank you for following my Peruvian posts over the weeks – this is the last one in the batch.
