First time Peru traveller - networking

Jump to last reply

Hello!

I have decided to go traveling with the last portion of money I have in the bank account. I have nothing holding me back from doing it now... and so I picked Peru because I was accepted to volunteer with a construction company for rebuilding earthquake destroyed zone. Just kind of throwing myself into something new.

The other parts of the trip that has made me the most timid is that I know absolutely noone yet, I have very basic Spanish, and traveling solo for extended periods of time is not really the idea of great fun to me.

Networking with other travelers - any suggestions other than talking with backpackers that you run into on the street?

Thanks for your time!
