My daughter, Erin, and my grandkids, Cody, 12, and Ellie, 10, have just arrived home from a summer spent in Cusco, Peru. They went to Cusco to do volunteer work in the Juan Pablo II Orphanage. The trip was arranged through United Planet, an organization that offers volunteer opportunities in over 35 countries. They were up for an adventure and they got one beyond their wildest expectations. They have come home with memories (and lots of souvenirs) that they will enjoy for the rest of their lives. They had the opportunity to visit many famous sites such as Macchu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, and Ariquipa. I can’t get enough of their stories and photographs and Erin generously said I could share a few of her photos in this post. I’ve never thought too much about going to South America but I think it needs to be added to my bucket list. It’s amazing.
If you would like to read about Erin’s trip to Peru and see more of her wonderful pictures you can visit her blog, Making Memories With Your Kids. She certainly did that with this amazing trip, didn’t she? Over the next few weeks she will be sharing memories of their trip and even some delicious Peruvian recipes that can be made here at home.
