Benefits of Solo Travel

Travelling alone can be a daunting prospect but there are so many benefits from planning a solo trip. Whether it be a day trip away (a good way to take that first step), a city break, a two week holiday, working/studying abroad, or even a 6 month trip around the world, they can all offer you something unique and a way to explore your interests and individuality.

Cafe de Lima

Normally I visit a location a fair few times before I write about it on here, just to make sure it really is as good as I think (Astrid & Gastón, Hanzo, Tanta), although there are special occasions like Lima Food Week or Lima Restaurant Week where I have shared some places that I had only visited once but think would be a good option to visit, especially with the one-off discount (Mayta, Malabar, La Nacional).

District Guide – Miraflores Highlights

This is the first neighbourhood guide for my favourite locations in Lima and it’s about the district of Miraflores. There are so many amazing places to see here, so the list is pretty long. However, there are always places for me to add as new places pop up, so don’t forget to check back!

This guide is to go alongside my List on Google Maps, ‘Emma’s Miraflores Highlights’. It just explains my choices in slightly more detail and shares any extra information I may have written previously. Links for the different locations are available through the map. I hope this helps give you some inspiration for your next trip to Miraflores!

This is the link to the map to check out my recommendations and their location – https://www.google.com/maps/placelists/list/1BGz-v0YZ6RQLcsXJd8nL8y3ODLQ

These locations have been added to the list in no particular order…

My Favourite Ice Cream Spots in Lima

Happy January everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and that you’re looking forward to a great 2017.

My family back in the UK have had some super cold, frosty days recently, while in contrast we’re experiencing the hottest January for 19 years I believe!! It’s crazy hot and humid and the only thing that makes it bearable is ice cream. A lot of ice cream!
