After exploring northern Peru’s mountains and coast, we were ready to head inland towards the famous Sacred Valley. The journey began with more dry and sandy desert that has now become commonplace for anyone exploring and driving through Peru.
After driving along the coast for so long and our fun family time in Lima, we were yearning for some good quality mountain time. The Cordillera Blanca is one of the most famous mountain ranges in the Andes and boasts some of the most beautiful snow-capped peaks in the world.
After some wonderful times along the coast exploring the surf and cultural ruins, we aimed for the capital of Lima with plans to pick up Sarah’s father Bob and step-mother Andrea who planned for a visit to sample Lima’s famous food and culture. We were very excited to see them and spend some time out of the van while learning even more about the fascinating history of Peru.
As we bid farewell to beloved Ecuador, we could only imagine what was in store ahead in the highly regarded country of Peru.
