Not so lucky blog readers, since I've been neglecting the blog disgracefully recently (again). I hang my head in shame. I blame two things - Pinterest, and, more importantly, preparations for a major trip that I will finally set out on ... tomorrow! At four am! Oh, OK, that part maybe isn't so lucky. But that's just one of those little awkward things that - hopefully - make you appreciate the big picture all the more.
Get this: I am going to be spending the next two weeks in Peru, traveling around the country and seeing as much as possible of what there is to see. Lima, Ica, Huacachina, Nazca, Paracas, Arequipa, the Colca Canyon, lake Titicaca, Cusco, Valle Sagrado, and of course Machu Picchu. OMG. I am seriously going to see Machu Picchu. Be still, my heart. :-)
But wait! There's more! After all of this, we - this is CH and me that's going, it'd be a little too much (at least for me) to take a trip this long alone - will be traveling on to San Cristobal in the Galapagos Islands to board the v. fancy catamaran Treasure of Galapagos which will be taking us around the islands for five whole days. This is such a dream come true for me that I hardly have words to describe it. I've been wanting to visit the Galapagos Islands since I was a little girl. I can hardly wait. :-)
After the cruise we will be spending one day in Quito and then flying back home again. So, gone for three weeks. Whew! I will do my best to update the blog while I'm there - I'm thinking I may take a picture or two occasionally - so if you're interested, check back and see if it's all as wonderful as I'm expecting it to be. :-)
