I can’t believe we’ve been in Peru for almost 3 months, but the passport doesn’t lie.
It’s time to border jump!
We need to get our visas and vehicle permit renewed. Failure to do so will result in a fine, plus the government would have the right to confiscate our vehicle. That would not be good.
We’re not too bummed though. We’ve been sitting tight in Huanchaco for a long time. As a matter of fact, this is the longest amount of time we’ve spent in one place in over 2 years! I’m itching for a road trip.
We decided that instead of just bolting up to the border and back, we’re going to make it a 2-3 week road trip around Northern Peru. And we’ve invited our good friends Julio and Lauren to join us.
The planned road trip will go north on the red line and then return on the blue line.
Highlights of this trip will include driving through the Andes to the mountain towns of Cajamarca and Chachapoyas where we’ll visit the 3rd highest waterfall in the world. Since we’ve already seen the first highest waterfall in the world, Angel Falls in Venezuela (click here), that will leave only #2 to complete the trifecta. Guess we’ll have to go to Africa soon!
We will also visit the world class surf breaks of Pacasmayo, (better know as Pack-a-Smile), and Lobitos, which was made famous by Rob Machado shredding in the film Sipping Jetsteams.
Here are a couple great photos from Stevie’s Birthday. Chris and Carlota, the ladies who live downstairs, threw her a special 4 course birthday lunch. God we love these people!
Stevie out on the town with our friend Tanja from Austria. She’s here in Peru doing Volunteer work with her significant other, Robert. These are the type of people who use their vacation time and personal savings to go somewhere in the world to help people. AMAZING! LOVE.
