It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

Where Is She? Where Did She Go? — (Mum Has Dementia)

November 4th, 2017 · By Lynn

Who is this woman sitting in a wheelchair staring out into space, this woman who more often than not prefers to keep her eyes shut even when she’s awake? Is the sight of this world too overwhelming as she slips further and further away? I don’t know, but I do know this woman looks like […]

August 10th, 2017 · By Lynn

Happy Birthday Mum! Today my mum turns 95 years old and I wanted to pay tribute to my wonderful mum, but for once words fail me. What can I say about this generous woman who has always put others before herself, who sacrificed a lot from the time she was a child? Her life wasn’t […]

April 27th, 2017 · By Lynn

Taxidatum, you can’t beat ’em! Six months have passed since Patrick and I took our trip to Peru and we miss the country and its people as much as ever. While I was researching how to get around Peru before our trip, I had heard of the company Taxidatum. They have rave reviews on a […]

Final Stop: Lima, Peru

January 14th, 2017 · By Lynn

Most of the information I had read about Lima on the internet was, “Don’t waste your time going to Lima.” But how could we not? After traveling so far, we couldn’t just pass up Lima like it was some small town instead of the capital of Peru. Patrick and I decided to spend five days […]

Cusco After The Sacred Valley – Not Before

December 31st, 2016 · By Lynn

The Plaza de Armas, Cusco. Patrick and I had headed straight to the Sacred Valley before attempting to visit Machu Picchu or spending any time in Cusco. Slow and steady was our motto and it’s the best way to adapt to the altitude. By the time we arrived in Cusco a week later, we had […]

Aguas Calientes, A Stepping-Stone To Machu Picchu

November 27th, 2016 · By Lynn

Getting off the train, our first look at Aguas Calientes. The Statue of Inka with the symbolic condor and puma. After a few days in Ollantaytambo, Patrick and I headed to Aguas Calientes. I had read that A.C. was a town that was under-whelming and overpriced. A place you had to be if you wanted […]

Peru Here We Come!

November 10th, 2016 · By Lynn

  Part One: Ollantaytambo First of all, let me say, this was the best trip I had ever taken. The reason wasn’t only the gorgeous scenery of the Andes Mountains, or our lifelong dream of seeing Machu Picchu, but in large part it was due to the people of Peru. They were the nicest people […]
