A few days ago I was in bed with the flu and not to get bored I turned on the TV and I logged in on a well-known video streaming subscription. Turning looking for something interesting to see, I was impressed by a documentary on Peru, a country hardly beaten by mass tourism and that I dream of visiting for a lifetime.
It will be the magic of the journey or some other strange influence passed on screen by the Inca people, but suddenly the headache that gripped me in the morning disappeared allowing me to enjoy this virtual experience in Peru.
The thing that struck me most is that Peru is the country with the most riches in the world, understood not as purely material things but as unforgettable experiences to live. Although its GDP (gross domestic product) is not among the highest on the planet has so many wonders able to enrich those who are lucky enough to live them in the first person.
For example, I did not know that the South American country was one of the best places in the world to practice surfing, and that the best chefs of the Planet prepared their special dishes right in the restaurants of the Peruvian cities. They thinks that the mix between culinary tradition and modern tastes has won the country the title of Culinary Destination of South America for 5 consecutive years at the World Travel Awards.

In Peru there are so many things to do that can match the tastes of any type of traveler, from the sportivone that can travel dunes and waves at full speed, the adventurer who can penetrate the depths of a jungle rather exuberant, up to those who like to enjoy the comforts of the colonial cities.
Taking a trip to Peru also means immersing yourself in experiences between legend and reality, such as the mysterious Machu Picchu, the Inca archaeological site at 2,430 meters above sea level, Unesco World Heritage Site and one of the seven wonders of the modern world. the lines of Nazca or the gigantic drawings traced on the arid terrain of the homonymous desert and dating back between the 3rd and the 5th centuries AD, and the floating city of Uros on Lake Titicaca, all made with totora reeds.
These fascinating pre-Columbian civilizations have then left the Peruvians a legacy of love and respect for nature, which is still strongly rooted in their culture.
Thanks to the documentary I am madly in love with Cusco, located at 3399 meters above sea level and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, capital of the Inca Empire and historical capital of Peru, and even Lima seems not to be bad with that contrast between modernity and tradition typical of the big cities of central and south America.
In short, as you will have understood, the time has come for me to organize a nice trip to Peru as soon as possible. I knew it, it was better if that afternoon I had fallen asleep prey to the feverish frenzy instead of watching TV and then end up falling in love with Peru, which also rhymes!
