Disneyland Paris isn’t that amazing

The end of our visit to France involved a two and a half day visit to Disneyland Paris. After a lot of rearranging of plans due to an unexpected hospitalization, we managed to keep our plans for visiting Disneyland only by renting a car and driving back to Paris from the Atlantic coast, just shyContinue reading “Disneyland Paris isn’t that amazing”

Vegetarian food in France can be hard to find

While coming across some vegetarian offerings in the grocery stores of the larger French cities isn’t too difficult, finding options elsewhere has been a surprising challenge. Countless times I’ve asked restaurant employees and boulangerie staff if any of their food items, besides baked goods, are vegetarian, only to be answered, “non!” We managed to getContinue reading “Vegetarian food in France can be hard to find”

We jumped across the pond

After completing our ~5 months in Perú, we made a stop at home to have two weeks of holiday time with our families. Now we’ve jumped to the other side of the Atlantic for a few months in Europe/Scandinavia. Our first stop on this leg is a month long stay in France. Our kids haveContinue reading “We jumped across the pond”

Getting around in the Sacred Valley

One of our favorite things about living in the Sacred Valley was that we could get around fairly easily without having a car. This was greatly facilitated by being in Urubamba, which is a little larger than some of the neighboring towns, but generally speaking, things wouldn’t change too much elsewhere in the Valley. OurContinue reading “Getting around in the Sacred Valley”

Visiting the Sacred Valley sites

One wonderful thing about the Valle Sagrado is that it has numerous Incan and pre-Incan sites to visit, not just Machu Picchu! We decided to use one of our weekends and purchase the Boleto Turistico – Partial Circuit 3. This ticket was 70 soles (kids free) and includes Moray, Chinchero, Ollantaytambo, and Pisac. We endedContinue reading “Visiting the Sacred Valley sites”

Buenos Aires for a final stop

Moving on from Santiago, the next stop on our itinerary was a visit to Argentina, specifically Buenos Aires, before returning to Perú. Our AirBnB in Buenos Aires was in a little quieter area than the one in Santiago. It definitely had a more residential fear even though all of the living accommodations were 8-9 storyContinue reading “Buenos Aires for a final stop”

A brief stop in Valparaíso

During our stay in Chile, we decided to take a day to make the trip to the coastal city of Valparaíso. Valparaíso turned out to be quite an interesting city. Though we didn’t do our planning well enough and ended up spending a fair amount of time wandering around, heading in the complete wrong directionContinue reading “A brief stop in Valparaíso”
