Our Blog

Sneak a peek at what goes on behind the scenes and what moves us. In Katy’s case, it’s mostly discovering new places to enjoy Peru’s gastronomy. For Steve, it’s a handy place to keep track of our ever-growing swag of awards. Sometimes our guests share their experiences. Sometimes it’s updates on our trips, our personal travels, and our growing families. It’s random and personal - like us!

I did try to tell the world a lot of this in the 2010 Lonely Planet guidebook. One of the best things about having the enviable job of updating the Cusco and Lake Titicaca chapters of the Lonely Planet Guide to Peru 2010 was getting to share my favourite, locals-only, a-million-times-better-than-the-tourist-places, things to eat.
