Mai Perso - Travel adventures

MaiPerso adventure to Machu Picchu – Day by day | December 19, 2011

Some more information on the planned route. As you know, the route is a plan that is likely to change.We are trying to experience the country through the lens of the locals. The places we are staying at will be the best we could find in the area, but not western where possible.

In general, we will have breakfast in the hotel, lunch when we feel like it along the route and dinner at our destination.

We would like to stick together but will not be offended if you want to break off for a romantic dinner or a burger with fries…
