Day 18

Day 18: Today we crossed the border, maybe 300 meters from where we slept. Regardless of leaving at 8am, we didn’t actually manage getting across until 12. First I had to wait for a bank to open at 9 to get cash out so I could pay the $160 Visa […]


Days 16 & 17

Days 16: In Ollantambo near Machu Picchu, I was hoping to make it to Puno that same day. Cusco was 2 hours south, then Puno another 6 hours. Taking a paved road back to Cusco, I was there by 9am and I loaded my bike up with the luggage I […]


Day 15

Days 8 – 10

Days 6 & 7

Day 6: I woke up later than I would have liked, around 10am. I blame this on my rather poor sleep camping the night before, but honestly I just like to sleep in when I have the chance. Having missed my free breakfast, I went to the front desk to […]
