Not my final destination but I will get there tomorrow. I didn't end up leaving Toronto until almost 11 pm but at least I have …

    Starting to get excited for the Peruvian adventure in November - so far, purchased Fodor's Peru guidebook (it had a pleasing balance of pictures and useful information) and a massive hiking backpack.

One week (7 days) in some way exploring Cuzco and Machu Picchu Spent the whole afternoon today browsing …

I will never forget the way the kids’ faces would light up from the slightest things, like when we would …
