On Ica you can visit the Nazca Lines by airplane, you can get a trip around all Nazca lines for about 50$.

The Nazca Lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert in southern Peru. They were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994. The high, arid plateau stretches more than 80 kilometres (50 mi) between the towns of Nazca and Palpa on the Pampas de Jumanaabout 400 km south of Lima. Although some local geoglyphs resemble Paracas motifs, scholars believe the Nazca Lines were created by the Nazca culture between 400 and 650 CE.The hundreds of individual figures range in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders,monkeys, fish, sharks, orcas, llamas, and lizards.


In Arequipa you have the Misti volcano and Colca valley, also museums and great sightseens. Ill talk more about Arequipa on my next post.

And remember, everytime is a good time to travel!


  1. Lollapalooza is always great to see!

  2. I would love to go to Peru. I speak conversational Spanish but I am not fluent. Is Peru friendly to Americans and non-native speakers of Spanish?

  3. More than friendly, is you ever come here you wont have problems with the language (at least in Lima and major cities) People here are always willing to help foreginers.

  4. Definitely seems like it would be a nice place to visit...unfortunately not having the most money in the world doesn't help on going on grand journeys cross country...*sigh*

  5. Arequipa looks great! Damn I wish I were going to Peru now, instead heading over to Borneo for the break...
    Thanks for all you great info!
