leave a comment »

nat-geoIn early February 2009, you might want to make sure you get a copy of Peru’s Travelers Guide to be published by National Geographic, the first one from countries in South America. There are only 58 other countries to have a guide in the world.

Featuring unique information on local culture, food, history and population, Peru’s Travelers Guide will release a record number of copies of 17,000 versus just 6,000-8,000 for other countries given the increasing interest in Peru by foreigners.

A Spanish version will also be available late 2009, as Andina reports.

I came across this interesting story on how a trip to Peru and other South American countries can change your life for the better. If you are of the adventure type, this is a must read.

After leaving his girlfriend behind, quiting his job, and stuck with non-refundable tickets and other travel expenses, Arkansas resident Marc Tremblay made the best of this travel which turned out to change his life to take the job of his dreams: become a canoe guide on the Mississippi River.

Perhaps you won’t change your job, or perhaps you will get to travel with your significant other. But the one thing that will remain similar to Marc’s story about yours is it will become an eye opening adventure.
