Peru Sacred Adventure
with Star Intergalactic Tours
and Star Riparetti ~ "Ambassador of Bliss"
Equinox March 15 - 23, 2012
optional Andean Lodge Addition March 23 - 27, 2012
Suggested Packing List:
- (Also, make two copies of the picture page of your passport and put them somewhere in your luggage - where your passport isn't.)
- Preferably ONE BAG (you will be happiest going light- at least to start- Trust me). I happen to like a duffel bag with wheels.
- ANOTHER BAG inside this bag, to carry home those wonderful irresistible Peruvian treasures (and for when you don’t want to take EVERYTHING with you... When we go to Machu Picchu it is nice not to take everything on the train- so that extra bag comes in handy. Of course then there are those nice Peruvian bags…).
- A MONEY BELT of some kind is good. I sometimes wear one around my waist. They also have ones that go around your neck. They hold your money and your passport- AND - regarding money: bring fresh money - they won't take it if it has even the slightest, tiniest tear (they will call it “cracked”). Even though some of their money looks ancient, they often won’t take ours if it is torn on the edge even a quarter inch.
- CLOTHES: bring some. Dress in layers. Weather is basically quite nice. It does get cool at night (hat & gloves are nice to have). Bring clothes you feel comfortable in. Shirts, pants, a jacket, some sweats, tights or long underwear - some socks, whatever you like to sleep in, a bathing suit. I bring a Patagonia polar fleece thing, and a windbreaker for if it is really cold (it's between 55 and 75 degrees in the daytime, cooler at night).
- We will be walking- bring SHOES you like to walk and hike in… (I personally like the grip boots I have.) And bring a second pair of shoes that you can walk in, too.
- Sunglasses, sunscreen (if you are a sunscreen person). A sunhat.
- A PONCHO in case Mother Nature momentarily sheds tears of joy (and she usually does, at some point). A big plastic bag can be useful, too. You can bring an umbrella if you like. Other sized plastic bags might come in handy.
- Your favorite TOILETRIES. I’d take this opportunity to skip the hair dryer if I used one- and if it brings you joy to have one- go for it... and bring a converter, cuz its mostly 220 there. A small towel.
- Toilet paper (I actually take lots of those little packs of kleenex).
- Personal medication, vitamins or supplements, if relevant.
- A DAY PACK.
- A reusable WATER BOTTLE- you can buy bottled water there and we will.
- If you choose- a few snacks- those comfort foods if you think you will need them.
- CAMERA, laptop or other electronic devices (if you like) and extra batteries or charger (and remember that 220 volt converter).
- I like to bring a small pocket knife (nice for cutting up fruit, cleaning fingernails, etc.) Be sure it is in your check-in luggage: NOT your carry on!
- A lightweight flashlight (Girl Scout training) and remember batteries! Also binoculars, if that seems interesting to you. These items are very useful when you can find them- and taking less makes it easier to find stuff- I'm learning (after a zillion trips).
- A journal is a nice thing if you are a journal person.
- A watch is useful even though I don’t usually wear one at home- so we can meet each other on time (as long as we are still in that time/space thing).
- Crystals- if you have some that want to go to Peru.
- CDs of music that you enjoy, to play in the bus while we are driving (it's nice to bring copies and leave them for the drivers or guides - they love them!)
- I like to bring pens and pencils or stickers or... ? for the kids.
- Bring your personal and planetary intentions and plan to have them fulfilled.
- Mostly bring an attitude of joy, an open heart, lots of unconditional love- and enthusiasm.
- The ANGELS of abounding joy are coming with us… (JOY-WONDER-AWE-BLISS-ECSTASY---and more...)!
NOTE: No immunizations are necessary.
