Two weeks ago I was in Chiang Mai, Thailand enjoying the Yee Peng / Loi Krathong season when I got notice that I had won Viventura’s Marketing Globetrotters contest – a 14 day all-expenses paid trip touring through Chile and Peru with Digital Marketing Expert and Rapper Mike King. Here is the announcement. What an honor! I was stunned! The idea is to go along on this amazing adventure in South America and get to learn latest techniques in online marketing from some masters. This was on a Tuesday. I was supposed to be on the other side of the planet, literally 12 time zones and a different hemisphere away, in South America on the following Monday!
Well the folks at Viventura scratched their collective heads and figured out a way to make it happen. So I found myself here in Paris France, on my way to Lima, Peru!
I am so psyched! We start with a few days here in Lima, Peru; then off to Arequipa, Cuzco, the Sacred Valley, Aguas Calientes, and something I have been dreaming of doing for years, Machu Picchu! From there we go to Lake Titicaca, Capachica, Puno then off to Santiago de Chile. From Santiago we go to UNESCO World Heritage Site Valparaiso for a few days of seaside relaxation before ending the trip.
These are a few of the shots I was able to make during my layover in Paris! I really love this retirement adventure and I am looking forward to doing photography in what for me has always been a dream destination.
