Flying (aka how not to get jet lag!)

Below is a post I actually made originally on another attempt at a blog, a few years ago.  I wanted to repost it, since it was my most liked post on the old blog and I feel the information is still pretty relevant. Continue reading

Three Perfect Days – Lima

I’m a United frequent flier, which means I generally spend a disproportionate amount of time reading their inflight magazine, Hemispheres.

Three Perfect Days - Lima

Every month they run a feature called “Three perfect days” and in May they featured Lima!  I was really excited to read this, since it was just after i’d booked the trip to Peru!

Take a read – it sounds like an awesome place!  Wish I ate fish and meat though – so many amazing culinary delights!

My travel route to Peru

I booked my trip to Peru using air miles, which means my options were pretty restricted when it comes to which route I could take.  United, who I carry my loyalty with, offered me the routing:

Gothenburg – Frankfurt – Newark – San Salvadore – Lima

Lima – Houston – Chicago – Frankfurt – Gothenburg

It’s kind of insane, but it’s a lot cheaper to use air miles on a trip like this than to book it directly.  So by the time I get to Lima I will have spent 25 hours on planes, and face the same on the way home.  Not unusual for me, but still… adventure starts a long way from home!
