I’m a United frequent flier, which means I generally spend a disproportionate amount of time reading their inflight magazine, Hemispheres.
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! http://www.hemispheresmagazine.com/2014/05/01/three-perfect-days-lima/
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!
