Talking Father-Daughter Peru Moto Adventure

Tomorrow morning my dad and I head to the airport to begin our 3 week journey through Peru on motorcycles. This is my senior trip and we wanted to go somewhere we may never have the chance to go again.

I just started riding 9 months ago. At first I was hesitant. Being a girly-girl, riding a motorcycle through a foreign country was not something I was too terribly excited about. But after 9 months of prepping, and the last two weeks of researching Peru and all of the beautiful places we are going to see, I am beyond ecstatic.

My dad and I will attempt to keep this thread up every day as we journey through Peru, (if the different hostels we stay at have wifi) but this is our first adventure rider post so bear with us - we are still learning.

To practice posting pictures, here are a few we took the last 9 months prepping for Peru.

And this is me... When I first starting riding and didn't like the helmet squishing my face

Lastly, here we are with a few Peru pictures and us. I am so excited for this trip with my dad and cannot wait to land in Lima, Peru tomorrow!!

P.S. My dad will also be posting his comments of the trip on this thread. :)

Ok - we are packed and ready to head to the airport. Leave out tomorrow. Just a few things about our trip. We fly to Lima tomorrow and will spend a couple of days there. Then we fly to Pucallpa and will not actually start the riding until Monday. We will spend a couple of weeks making our way to Cusco - thru the Amazon and over the Andes. Riding with a small group of people we will meet for the first time in a couple of days. I know the adventure is riding on your own and making your own trails, but hey, this is a good start down that path. Proud of my daughter for going with me. Looking forward to spending a few weeks with her and pushing ourselves to see new things, meet new people and getting outside our comfort zone. If nothing else in Peru we are going to eat some roasted guinea pig (rat on a stick) and swim with the piranhas. Hope to be able to post each night so friends and family will know we are ok, and let you know about our travels.

Came across this pic the other day - never knew 10 -12 years later it would lead to this.

This is one of the most awesome trips I've heard about. Its great that you guys are doing this together.

I can't wait to read about it. Even better, to hear the stories over a beer when you guys get back. (sorry Jessica, the beer is only for Rob )

Have fun and don't be afraid to find out where that trail goes. It leads to more adventure.
