G Adventures South America – Day 21 – Death Road

Day 20 on my wee South American jaunt and it was time today to crank it up a notch and have some fun on an adventure that, when described, sounds like anything but a good idea.

With the the regular post sleep routine (brekkie, packing etc) all taken care of this morning, we headed out onto the street to be met by a selection Puno “limousines” – basically pedal-powered tuk-tuks we jumped aboard with our daypacks and headed off on the journey down to the waterfront.

Well, I made it through the night. Despite the constant chorus of wild hooting and wailing unlike anything I’ve ever heard before, and the hum and buzz of an army of unseen insects keeping me company throughout the entire night, I slept like a log. No doubt the limited amount of sleep I received on the epic journey the night before had something to do with that.

G Adventures South America – Day 13 – Machu Picchu

Oh boy. There’s not a fibre in my body that would have believed that, what has become one of the longest days of my life, would also be what will become one of the most memorable days of my life, considering the way it all kicked off in the wee, dark hours of this morning.
