As we begin to make the lockdown easier for many of us and we begin to think about getting back on the road in 2021, we are taking you on an armchair adventure with a virtual tour of Peru. !
Before you buy Virtual Trips to visit Machu Picchu, Lima Street Art Tour, and 360 Museum. Also, because we want to shake things up a bit, a Pisco Sour Cocktail Making Class.
Make it fake until you make it. Discover the ancient city of Machu Picchu with this interactive tour, all views without thigh burns or the stench of a four-day sock. (We’re joking about their trail, it’s epic. Make sure you plan ahead and include the real thing in your 2021 escape plan).
Going beyond icons
So, Machu Picchu may be Peru’s ‘Justin’ or ‘Beyonce’, but what about Nick? Or Kelly? Well, backstage boys and movable child metaphors abound. Just promise to check out the incredible places in Peru that are Machu Picchu. Like this oasis near Ica
Read or watch it
No trip to Latin America (real or virtual) will be complete without reading and looking at the motorcycle diary. Documenting Che Guevara’s journey around the world, this is his journey through Peru and Machu Picchu, a key milestone in his revolution.
وقت When drinking it
As you would expect from a cocoon grape wine and an egg white cocktail, Peru’s national cocktail is a bit foggy. However, the taste is amazing. Join our friends in Kentucky for this Pesco Pig Sock Cocktail class.
Take a street art tour
The walls of most South American cities are known for their color, artistry, and storytelling. Lima is no exception. The first Latin American Street Art Festival was held in Lima in 2012, and made the streets of Merflowers a canvas for 30 artists from across the subcontinent.
I have a night
The museum has an interesting blend of culture in Peru, inheriting customs and traditions from their heritage, mixed with Spanish, African and Chinese influences and settlers. Thanks to the Peruvian Ministry of Culture, you can now take a 360 trip to 20 major museums.
Watch this video
Bring penpipes! Part of National Geographic’s short film showcase, the six-minute film takes you from the heights of the Andes to the floating islands of Lake Titika. What’s more, at 2:47 a.m., an air-powered machine is momentarily an alpaca floppy fringe.
