Peru-Bolivia-Chile-Argentina 2012-13

We went backpacking for four months through Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina. An amazing trip, with lots of great experiences. Traveling with small kids was a door-opener, it was easier to talk with the local people, and people were very helpful. We still travel outside the normal tourist routes, and it wasn’t a problem with the kids.

Here are some highlights in pictures:

A Canadian couple own a bed and breakfast , ‘The lazy dog inn‘.  The money they earned went towards the local people. One of the projects was a local school. Tiuri and Liva went to that school the three days we were there, great experience.

We went to visit Carlos og Nancy, and had the traditional Peruvian dish guinea pig.  Great for us and our kids to see how they live and how ‘many’ toys they have in Peru.
