Peru and Brazil in Sept/Oct 2013, planning time!

Jump to last reply

Hello all! As this is my first post on Fodors I’ll introduce myself a bit! Please bear with me through all the “I”s & “me”s. :)

I’m a “make-your-trip-as-you-want” type of traveler. I don’t like the herd feeling most group trips seem to offer (ok, disclaimer: except for a few 1-day trips with groups, I’ve never been on a longer one because it’s not my piece of cake; that’s just the feeling I get when seeing large groups in touristic places).

I generally study & study & study the places where I’m going before I decide exactly. I love travelling & getting all the info I can keeps me “alive” between escapes. :) Also probably an important point, I normally travel with my husband (it’s funny to see this in print, after 2 years of marriage I still call him my boyfriend!). I prefer air travel to land travel (for convenience & safety, but I don’ exclude buses, taxis or private transport if it seems more appropriate), and it’s the norm to have 5-10 flights during our holidays. But! Traveling-wise we’re not exactly the same. I am more adventurous and like going & seeing, he likes going and seeing but also prefers to laze around, wake up late & do nothing. So we have an agreement: our holidays are about half & half, with at least a few days of beach-time (or lake-time/mountain-time but with late mornings in bed).

And now back to the topic at hand. It got stuck in my mind that I want to see Machu Picchu this year. That of course means going to Peru :).

So I started investigating and making a plan. Which is where your opinions could come in handy!
