Hi guys,

I'm really excited about my trip to Peru, I'm a single traveler from Oz. Anyone else heading on this trip?

HIya,
I'm on the same tour, my flight gets into Peru on the morning of the 21st September. I'm also travelling solo, so will be nice to meet other travellers who've been gearing up for the trip for as long as me!

I can't believe there are just under 3 weeks to go- excited and nervous here too, but looking forward to meeting everyone :)

See you on the 21st!

Hi All,

My name is Lorna and I'm gonna be on this trip too! I just saw on the news that there is a state of emergency in Peru and a lot of snow! so I am having a bit of a packing panic and was wondering if anybody else was in a panic too or had any suggestions?

Thanks!!!!

Hi Lorna,

I don't think you need to worry about the snow, it seems to be in the provinces further south. The 14 weather forecasts say cloudy and rainy, about 15 degrees but not snow. Waterproof shoes seem like a good idea. A couple of forecasts mentioned thunderstorms.

HI All,

Well I'm glad I checked the forum again, I had no idea the weather would be so wet! Kylie- which site do you use to check, as I keep getting mixed messages on the sites I'm looking at!

thanks,
reeya

I have been looking at world weatheronline.com and AccuWeather.com. The snow has stopped so that's good. I feel sorry for all the farmers and their dead animals!
