"There they were again, tiny lightning bolts spider-webbing around my limbs. To me, it seemed like pure magic. But in the morning, when I excitedly asked my host family what it was all about, they simply shrugged their shoulders. It happens, don't know why, no big deal. In the Andean universe, where the locals believe gods called apus live in the mountains surrounding them, nature never seems to surprise. And nor, it seems, does magic."
My latest story for @travellerau, about my journey through Peru's Sacred Valley with @crooked_compass, is out today! Grab a copy of the Sun Herald to read it in print, or you can check out the online version up top in the bio link.
And for anyone out there who's desperate to visit South America but feels a little trepidation about doing it alone (like I was), I couldn't recommend travelling with Crooked Compass more highly. You get all the support you need through your adventures, without feeling at all mollycoddled. Plus they'll get you to the most remote and untouched areas, and make sure you're in touch with local communities the whole way, so you can really suck the marrow out of your journey 🇵🇪
