Peru through the eyes of a Peruvian

About 3 months ago, I got to know an amazing person, Prof. César Gutiérrez-Muñoz. He is a historian, an archivist, a traveller, a big lover of Peru. From the first meeting with him, when he told me some stories from his life, I knew that this will be the right person to make an interview with. He is “old enough” to tell me about Peru now and then, and what’s more, he is very friendly (he always brings me chocolate from his trips 😛 ), so I was hoping that he would agree with that. And he did. We did the interview about 3 weeks ago, we talked about Peru, culture, people, security, history, and here is the result – authentic view of Peru: Pokračovať v čítaní “Peru through the eyes of a Peruvian”

Cestopis: 4 slováci v Peru

V aprili tohto roku sa nam neplanovane podarilo naplanovat uzasny vylet po Peru.  Kedze sme pocas priprav prisli na to, ze vacsina informacii na internete nie je aktualnych a uz toboz nie je v slovencine, chcem sa s vami podelit o tipy a skusenosti, ktore by vam mohli pomoct pri podobnych cestach akou bola ta nasa.

Po viac ako dvoch mesiacoch stravenych dobrovolnictvom v severnej casti Peru som sa vratila spat do Limy, aby sme spolu s dalsimi troma slovakmi vyrazili na juh.  Chceli sme vidiet najznamejsie turisticke destinacie juzneho Peru, avsak po vlastnom. Takze sme vsetko zorganizovali a vybavili sami bez agentury, vdaka comu nas vylet vysiel so vsetkym vsudy (doprava, vstupy, ubytko, jedlo) na: 800 eur + letenka (siatocna letenka svk-peru cca 750 eur) Pokračovať v čítaní “Cestopis: 4 slováci v Peru”

Volunteering in Trujillo, Peru: warnings and recommendations

I have always wanted to travel to South America. Apart from my desire to learn Spanish and salsa, I am a big fan of traveling, so Amazon jungle, beautiful mountains with hidden cities, Rio, beaches… sounded very tempting. Volunteering seemed to be the best option because you can get to know the country not only as a tourist and on top of it you help community.
