This post is to let you know that next Friday February 5th, 2016 I’ll be flying south to Peru in South America in company of my wife Lucy and son Tyler, this trip will be Tyler’s very first international flight. I wanted him to visit a Country where I’ve been many times and had my best adventures. I have traveled this Country to all it’s regions through the years and have visited most of it’s main natural and cultural attractions. Some for work and others as an avid explorer. I want Tyler to get a little taste of that. My wife and Tyler will be there for about 10 days and then return home. I will stay for a month to meet some important people and do some bird photography! My post after my return will be made on March 6th, 2016.
