Carolines Lodging Huaraz
Carolines Lodging Huaraz I booked the annex at Carolines Lodging which is next door to the hostel. It is quieter and has only private rooms, every room is ensuite and has hot water around the clock. It is ideal if you want to get down to some work, I wanted to focus on some writing. There was a communal area with a...
I just returned from spending 3 weeks in Croatia and it exceeded my expectations by far. I am a long-haul traveller so Europe is unexplored territory for me in comparison to other continents and I suppose because I feel its so close to home I rarely expect to be wowed...Croatia WOWED me! The landscapes, the beaches, the ancient cities, the...

Laguna 69, Huaraz
Despite the fact that I had been acclimatising to the altitude in Huaraz for 4 days I still wasn't coping very well with the 3052m altitude. I was beginning to wonder if I would be able to do the Laguna 69 trek. It felt like someone was squeezing my head, the same pressure you feel when you dive into...

We had pre-booked a 6 bed dormitory with air conditioning, let me tell...

It looks rundown and pretty dimly lit but the bright yellow tablecloths demand your attention. We...
