Machu Picchu- The Legend We Missed- Life on the Road Decisions, Peru

Machu Picchu- The Legend We Missed- Life on the Road Decisions, Peru

Machu Picchu is one of those legendary fairy tales you can’t miss. You walk up that mountain, passed the clouds and walk into a world long gone, yet so much alive in spirit. We had heard of Machu Picchu and listened to countless travelers speak of it’s magic and how they remain in awe of it’s very aura. While the kids and I stayed in Lima, Peru in Nomade Backpacker’s Hostel we sighed, and yes, we missed it. Let me show you something so cool about this living history lesson and tell you why we just missed out on it. Stairs Go Up and Down Yeah, you knew that. And so do opportunities, and life, and relationships, and our money, and our moods. So, Machu Picchu will have to wait for us. We can’t have it all. We can’t. We can literally travel for the next eighty years and we just won’t see it all, do it all. Now that we are living in the Philippines (and loving life...

When You Keep Meeting Your Heroes Across The Globe- Passover 2012 (Lima, Peru)

When You Keep Meeting Your Heroes Across The Globe- Passover 2012 (Lima, Peru)

We’re so lucky. The Gods are smiling upon us. They do that a lot these passed few years. Yeah, the Gods are definitely paying us back, with interest, on some unearthly good Karma. We’re thrilled to cash in our chips. THANK YOU KINDLY STAR-DUST CREATORS! We’ll bask in the good stuff! So, we are at Modi and Anat Ephraim’s house. Have you ever told you our love story? I think I’ll have to ask Modi for permission how much I can say about the one family that probably had the most influence on almost every major parenting/family decision we’ve ever made. He’s important now, with full-time guards (when we saw him in Huanchaco, he had a convoy, dear God) and he wears suits that don’t wrinkle. When we knew him, back then, he was in the hood. So, we still treat him like a worthless nobody, but you’ve gotta be careful with the diplomatic sorts. So, for now, until I get permission in three copies with a few backup...

The Best Video About Peru

The Best Video About Peru

After traveling for a year in Latin America, you cannot forget the great moments we had experience there no matter how much time passes.  I had leaned to appreciate what we had in South America, for example, only after arriving to South East Asia.  In south America, we were able to communicate to the local on a deep level and by that, to reach great relationships. However, in SE Asia, our deepest converse goes to “Thank you” and “How much is it?”. It was quite difficult to have this radical cultural change. So when I viewed the video clip below about Peru, my heart was filled with joy and nostalgia. I recalled all the great moments we had in Peru, especially in Huhanchaco, Lima, and Cusco. How beautiful! Feel free to view some of the post we wrote about traveling in Peru but regardless, click on this touching video clip. How Cheap Can I Sleep?
