HOMEWARD-BOUND …

All good things come to an end. And, from this point on, it was (literally) downhill all the way for our very satisfied Mad Midlifers: a return train-journey along the Sacred Valley … a couple more nights (plus a city-tour and some alpaca-shopping) in Cuzco … a short flight back to sea-level and Lima … a longer three-and-a-half hour flight to Santiago (Chile) … a 4-to-5 hour sit-around at the airport (yawn) … and, finally, a 13-and-a-half hour flight to Auckland (arriving while you were still asleep, at 4:40am Thursday morning).

Phew, what an adventure we’ve had! And what stories we’ve got to tell! We’ve seen so much, done so much, learned so much, gained so much and laughed so much that we don’t know where to put it all!

IS EVERYBODY HAPPY?

YOU BET YOUR LIFE WE ARE!
