  • Immersion in Solo

    Travel Journal from Peru Peru | Fri Jan 07, 2011

So far everyone seems really nice over emails and stuff. I can't wait! Oh man. This season has been so hectic preparing, but I'm so sure it'll be worth it. I wonder what it'll be like there. I anticipate some beautiful vistas …
