With the New Year comes a fresh season to see travel with new eyes. Perhaps this year you already have set travel plans, or maybe you won’t be able to travel at all. Regardless, now is a great time to keep that spirit alive with a renewed perspective whether your ventures take you near or far.
Whether you’re traveling to Peru in the near future or just dreaming of a some-day visit, reading up on this location is a must before travel. Home to the ancient empire of the Incas, Peru also boasts swaths of Amazon rainforest, the highest sand dune in the world, and nearly 100 microclimates. The intertwining history of the Old World and the New over the past 500 years have shaped both cultures into what they are today, and these books give a glimpse into both the past and present of the epicenter of South America.
It’s the time of year where the weather shifts, the days shorten, and there’s a natural inclination to turn inward toward friends & family and life comforts. Whether you’re on the road this season or taking a break before next year’s travels, now is the perfect time to practice the gratitude the travel teaches us.
