A Spiritual Journey: Peru 2009 - Testimonials
I’m a big traveler and my trip to Peru with Lori was one of the best of my lifetime. It was the perfect combination of culture, adventure, trekking, yoga, sightseeing, fun and friendship. Lori organized the trip flawlessly. We had the benefit of her outstanding yoga classes to keep us fit and grounded. I can’t imagine a better experience to explore the mysteries of Peru.

My trip to Peru with Lori was more fun than I ever dreamed it would be. Our yoga group adventured on Inca trails, canoed in lush Amazon jungles and was awestruck by the majestic Machu Picchu. Plus doing yoga in sacred places really connects you with Pachamama (Mother Earth). Having also gone to India with Lori, I knew I could trust her splendid organizational skills and dedication to making the trip enjoyable for all. Travel with Lori and enjoy the experience – you’ll love it!

The trip to Peru with Lori was one of the most memorable experiences of my lifetime. It was truly a trip where words can not do justice. In a nutshell, our trip started in Lima and continued on to the Amazon jungle, a unique opportunity which let me experience the jungle up close. We spent 5 days in Cuzco for acclimatization before embarking on the 3 day Lares trail towards Machu Picchu. The scenery on the Lares trek is spectacular with very little tourist crowds: we passed thru many Quechua villages where we were greeted with red cheeked children looking for gifts of pencils, notebooks and chocolates. We met the locals who are mostly llama herders, got invited into their one room homes where the guinea pigs scurried along on the dirt floor of the house. Meeting the locals gave me an incredible insight into the life in the Andes: one becomes envious of the simplicity of life on the highlands; it is an experience that is missed on the Inca trail. All the time on the trek, we were in the company of llamas and alpacas (sometimes up close and personal). Walking into the ruins of Machu Picchu before dawn is undeniably magical. This place will always call me back. We finished off our Peru adventure in the beautiful resort of Willka Tika with its beautifully appointed cabins, organic food, landscaped gardens, professional staff and relaxing yoga sessions with Lori. Lori was a great leader, 100% professional and very well organized. On this trip I was accompanied with a handpicked group of wonderful people, with whom I have since hiked and traveled in other parts of the world. I highly recommend the upcoming tour organized by Lori to anyone thinking about exploring this incredible part of the world.
