Lima and Loki Hostel

Happy Different Valentine’s Day from Peru!

I’m one of those who spent Valentine’s Day with comfort chocolate and Valium all her life, until last year when me and one of my best friends decided to do something different on Valentine’s Day; we wanted to help others.

On the Road Again

And I’m on route South America! But I might be having a different reaction to it than what you’d think… It’s not that I’m not excited, deep inside I am. It’s just this trip was always going to be a mission testing my boundaries and capability to handle my death anxiety, and now a lump…
