Absolute Peru - Lares

Postby Spuzzum » Fri Mar 02, 2007 7:21 pm

Hello!

I am planning on taking this trip and i have a quick question about luggage. Do most people bring a suitcase, or a backpack to carry their things?

Thanks!

I took the absolute peru trip and most people bring a backpack, it is just easier to carry. Have a great time it is such an amazing trip.

Backpacks are usually your best bet as they are easier to cram into tight spaces and can handle the wear and tear better. And of course they are easier to carry too. I've travelled with a convertible backpack for over 11 years (the same one!) and it's great because you can zip up the straps and hide them away whenever you want.

Is there any 'secret' tips you can give me for his trip? Anything specific that I just should not miss? :)

My advise on this trip is before you go on the homestay when you are in Puno pick up crayons and coloring books for the kids. You have the option of getting an air matress for the trek, I think it costs 10 dollars. It is a worthy investment.

Have fun.
