I remember crossing the border from Bolivia to Peru and talking with Daniel about how we would only spend 3-4 weeks in Peru. Well, we were very wrong. From the Amazon jungle to hiking 5,000m high in the Andes, Peru had us busy and entertained! Here are some of our favorite pictures from our 10 weeks there featured in our very own Peru Travel Photo Gallery.
On the Huayhuash hike in Northern Peru, this was where we camped on the second night
The one day hike to Rainbow Mountain just outside of Cusco
Another amazing viewpoint from the Huayhuash Circuit
Swimming with the sea turtles in Mancora.
These puppies stole our hearts. They were living at where we volunteered in the jungle for about two weeks.
A Caiman, smaller and less aggressive than the crocodile’s we are usually see in Darwin. This is in the Amazon jungle.

Selfie with the sea turtles in Mancora. These guys were not scared of people at all and would just swim right into you.
And we can’t forget the fabulous Machu Picchu!
