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!

The Aspiring Inca

In September 2015, we ran an Aspiring Inca event for GoBundance, a group of healthy, wealthy, generous men who travel the world on a mission to learn, grow and give something back. They are a uniquely demanding (and inspiring!) group of people.
