My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Chinchero, Peru

“There are many paths to the top of the mountain, but the view is always the same…” – Chinese Proverb

(At the highest viewpoint of Chinchero, Peru)

We stopped at the highest point of the mountain range for a panoramic view of the valley. We bought a colourful shawl and had photo shots with the decorated llamas.

We visited Chinchero, a small rustic town off the main road between Urubamba and Cuzco. Chinchero is home to the famous Peruvian weaving and also has a colourful market. After watching the weaving demonstration, we bought two alpaca sweat shirts for a reasonably cheap price.
