The colourful land of Peru, courtesy of Saga Travel and The Telegraph

It's been non-stop on this colourful trip of a lifetime to Peru, which I won in a travel writing competition run by The Telegraph and Saga.

You'd think a Saga holiday might be a bit slow for a woman approaching fifty (albeit from the wrong direction).
But I don't think I've been on the go so much since a press trip to the Falkand Islands in 1987.

I've seen some wonderful things.

We've been here, there and everywhere, on dry land and on Lake Titicaca, by plane and by bus and on foot. The sights, sounds, smells, taste and the feel of things has been incredible. There is lots to tell but I'll just let the pictures do the talking.
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
There's been sunrises...
...and sunsets.
There's been altitude sickness, discovering your fellow travellers know people you know (it's a small world, after all) and a few coca leaves to chew every day.

But the best is yet to come. Machu Picchu. Today.

That's about it.
