In Samaipata we were able to help out a Spanish family. I already talked about them before. They had two small but beautiful houses, one they lived in and the other one they were renting out. But their plans are much bigger. They want to build another, bigger house where they wanted to move into and then live off the rent of the other two and eventually from that money travel a little bit in South America. So we were happy to help. At the moment they are working on a small garden hut for their tools and to provide their volunteers a sleeping space upstairs. We helped to render that from the inside and out.Read More »
So much love for Samaipata! We spent their almost three weeks (!) enjoying the nicest climate and the rest of our time helping out a Spanish family with building a small garden shed. It sound like a great time and it was!Read More »
Just throwing in a little life-update from my side here:
As I recently celebrated my 21st birthday (finally considered a complete adult – even in the US!) I decided to spoil myself a little bit. As some of you might know, the last few months I have been maintaining this blog solely from my iPhone, one with only 8GB storage! :D You can probably tell how frustrating this whole task can become considering I had to play the pictures from the camera to my phone and “edit” them and type everything with my two thumbs. Not complaining – I still loved to prepare every single post. It just took me close to forever.
This time I am going to tell some more about our experience with helping out in the small and a little touristic village of Cabanaconde in the mountains of Colca Canyon. We volunteered at a hostel and its restaurant which we found on Workaway. But I think I should jump right to it. This is going to be a very honest post about what happened and what I thought about it. Read More »
Just a short summary of what we were up to our first two weeks in Peru. As you might know we helped out at a school in the northern outskirts of Lima. We were able to stay at the school’s owners’ house who were really welcoming and took great care of us.Read More »
It’s been around a week since I landed in South America with a lot of great experiences and new things to learn! Our first stop is Lima, the capital of Peru with around 8 million inhabitants, the biggest city of our tour. We decided to stay around two weeks here to get an insight of the Peruvian/South American lifestyle and move on from there. Read More »
I guess I’ve started this project just in time for my next big adventure – probably the biggest one yet!!! Which is South America. My boyfriend and I will be traveling around Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador together for around 6 months and I couldn’t be more thrilled!Read More »
