Malapascua
This is one of my favourite spots in the Philippines, and only a few hours away from Cebu City, I'm hoping to get there again soon.

Trekking at 4000m high wasn't easy!

The Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu is as gorgeous as Huaraz Treks!!
Incredible views along the Salkantay Trail. It's not hard to see why Nat Geo rates it a top 25 trek in the world, with so much variance. The Salkantay mountain itself is an important deity in Quechuan culture and walking up to the pass is an incredibly worthwhile challenge

Nice story
We were in Lima ourselves a few years ago. I liked your story from there. I now realize that there is plenty more to see and to do in Lima than we took in when we were there. Good to know because it might be that we go back there some day. /Ake

Re: Nice story
Thank you. We were unsure ourselves what to do in Lima prior to arriving, so only scheduled the one day there. We found it to be a very nice & interesting place. Glad we were able to show you a different side to your previous visit.

Hand-made building blocks

Adobe bricks!
Oh you Brits, with your stone and wooden buildings, may not know that cities in the New World were often made of mud! Yes, Machu Picchu and the nearby Inca sites are of stone, as are most remaining archaeological sites because adobe (mud) bricks tends to go back to mud after a few centuries. But in dry places like Lima, northern Peru and my California, indigenous people and the Spanish built with adobe because there was no stone or wood. I once helped make these adobe bricks of clay, straw and water, and it's heavy work, but hey, they had lots of workers (willing or not).

Re: Adobe bricks!
Oh wow. Thats very interesting. We never knew that about the New World. Seemed like gruelling laborious work making thousands of these small things by hand. Seeing the ruins in Peru was very impressive knowing this.

I think you're right - this is definitely how Narnia would look :)

Couldn't have chose a more peaceful setting

Out of this world!
Narnia indeed--what incredible landscapes! You two are amazing--marathon bus rides and then hiking at altitude without acclimatization! Scary to hear that the Quilotoa loop (which I thought I could do) was more difficult at times. You were so lucky to have blue skies and clear weather in what is usually the rainy season. Really fabulous photos and excellent adventure!

Re: Out of this world!
We really didn't know what to expect going from sea level to 3000m above sea level. Thankfully it was only the expected shortness of breath whilst trekking we suffered from. Our Quilotoa trek was quite difficult in parts, there maybe a simpler route that you could do but you may need to ask around.

What a terrifying experience! So glad that you both managed your way out of it and the food poisoning. Sorry to hear there is a deadline, but can't wait to follow the rest of your trip, and perhaps a new deadline after the birthday. :)

Finding our way out
Thanks for your lovely comment Michelle. It always tells a great tale our experience at the border, but we hope that's the first and last of those encounters. We really felt a sense of loss when we started to anticipate our deadline but we are more than certain that this certainly won't be the last of our travel adventures. That's for sure.

This is not your last trip
When we took our first extended trip we sort of had the thought, "oh this will get it out of our system" HA! 5 years later we were on the road again, yes, a shorter trip, but grand. A few months after your return you'll be sitting in a meeting think "What happened it was too quick" Corruption is around the world. I'm glad the outcome was good. Sorry you got food poisoning. I (MJ) get food poisoning frequently. Food can think about going bad and I get sick. It prevents me from eating some of the street foods that I would like to try. It makes our travel more expensive because I have to be careful where I eat but at least it does not stop us from traveling. My worst illnesses were in Chaing Mai and Kathmandu but also about 6 other cities. I've learned to be overly cautious so I don't get hospitalized which almost happened those two times. Your photos speak for themselves.

Not our last trip
We took a similar stance before this trip 'A big trip to get it out of our system before we start a family'. After completing it, sadly we feel we now feel we have only really just begun. Wow you really do have a sensitive stomach, much more than the two of us. That must make travel difficult as one great aspect is the different temptations of food. I'm guessing India will be a great challenge as Chris like many others we met fell ill on several occasions. It's great that you do not let this challenge prevent you from exploring what the world has to offer!! Life would be much less enjoyable for us with travel taken out of it.
