PERU

 

SEASON 1 | EPISODE 7

 

Rock slides and Inca skies - sadly, our time in Peru ends in Cusco. We explore the Ancient Inca capital, enjoy the amazing natural rock slides of Saqsaywaman, and learn about the Astronomy of the Incas at an incredibly unassuming planetarium. Marco gets up close and personal with a young alpaca and eats a rodent for the first time. Next stop: Chile!

SEASON 1 | EPISODE 6

 

Our first exclusive gastro-experience episode! In the small town of Aguas Calientes, the main hub for those going to Machupicchu, Marco and Rodrigo take a private cooking class on Peruvian food the day after our visit to the ancient ruins, at the fabulous Tree House Restaurant. The two play bartenders making Pisco Sours and Maracuya Sours (with and without Pisco), then head to the kitchen to prepare three dishes using potatoes, ceviche, alpaca meat and quinoa as prime ingredients. And did we say Marco was the first child to ever take that course? This mouth watering episode will leave you hungry for more, guaranteed.

SEASON 1 | EPISODE 5

 

Nearly 20 years in the making, the Machupicchu episode is finally here! Beautiful, ancient, mysterious, spiritual. Whatever you call it, you have to see this place in person to believe it - but we think our episode is the next best thing. We brave out the effects of altitude and are rewarded with breathless beauty - no pun intended. And we experience a couple of Indiana Jones moments as well! Was it worth it? Watch and decide.

SEASON 1 | EPISODE 4

 

Expert Weavers and Ancient Terraces. In the town of Chinchero we hang out at a community of amazing weavers of traditional Peruvian fabrics and learn about all the different dyes - you will never guess the secret ingredient for the indigo tint! On the way to the beautiful ruins of Pisac Bella and Heather take selfies with a friendly Llama while Rodrigo has a close encounter with a Condor. Hiking up we battle altitude sickness, get stuck in tunnels and walk alongside chasms - and we couldn't have done any of it without our incredible local guide Isaias.

SEASON 1 | EPISODE 3

 

We made it to the tiny village of Ollantaytambo, the last town near the base of the Inca Trail. Watch what happens when we hike up to our first set of ancient ruins under the influence - that is, under the effects of high altitude sickness. It's election year in Peru while Marco eats alpaca burgers and makes an unnexpected friend at the lodge. We all get stuck in our first traffic jam going uphill on a narrow road and finally get saved by nuns!

SEASON 1 | EPISODE 2

 

Our first stop in Peru is Lima, its up-and-coming capital. Find out what happened on our first night and follow us as we deal with Marco getting sick, do some food explorations  (including a chocolate-making class), go for an urban bike tour, visit a grocery store and an old-fashioned barber shop, taste Pisco Sour - the national drink - and try to figure out what "unschooling" looks like.
