A Travellerspoint blog

Pre-trip rant

also an introduction to my first online-blogging experience

rain 27 °C

so,... this entry is just a dry-run for me as I've not used an online blog before... yeah, gotta roll with the times.
trying to work out how I can direct traffic (mainly friends), to my travelblog too.

am feeling a li'l unprepared and anxious about this trip. it is all happening so quickly, even though i guess i've planned it in my head for the last few months. i'm excited though! 2 more weeks!

have read my LonelyPlanet... surfed countless pages of info on the web... contacted the NGO I'm volunteering with... booked my flights... paid my volunteer fees... taken my vaccinations - Tetanus, Typhoid, Yellow Fever and the 1st dose for Hep A+B...

and there is still plenty left to arrange/buy/do/pack/plan/read/etc.etc.
blah blah blah

am still waiting for the delivery of my macpac from sydney!
(that's a brand of backpack for all those not acquainted with things antipodean)
ahh yes... i've succumbed to online consumerism.

oh, some of you might not know what I'll be doing in Peru.
the plan is:
get into Lima, stay the night.
fly to Cusco the next day.
hook up with BrucePeru, the NGO I'm volunteering with.
spend a month there, and if I like what I'm doing with them, (and vice versa i suppose), will extend my volunteer stint for another month.
if not, I'll start travelling.

first stop: Machu Picchu. Will do the 4 day Inca Trail. *so excited*

the rest of the trip is a blur right now, but the plan is roughly this:
Puno
Lake Titicaca
cross border into La Paz, Bolivia
back into Peru
Arequipa
Canon Del Colca
Nazca (nazca lines!!)
Lima
Trujillo (chan chan!!)
and after this, it gets even blurrer...

i'll be there for at least 7-8weeks i reckon. if that's the case, i'll be back in singapore for new year's.
if not, i dunno... probably back in late jan/feb.

It all depends on the financial situation and enjoyment factor.

so all those in Singapore, please keep a look-out for any freelance jobs i might have when i get home!
