Adventures in Deepest, Darkest Peru

Uncategorized Jun 14, 2018

You might remember we told you June was going to be an exciting month for us, and this is one of the big reasons why! We all love an adventure at Hundred Acre, and Bridget Gilmour, Hundred Acre’s founder and director, has now returned from the biggest adventure of her life to date; a trip to deepest, darkest Peru. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that Bridget didn’t go alone…

The adventure began as Bridget boarded a plan with Winnie-The-Pooh and Piglet.

Paddington Bear at Lima

Winnie-The-Pooh and Piglet were quick to make friends with Paddington Bear, who welcomed them to Lima.

Beautiful scenery in Lima

The scenery was spectacular; what an amazing country!

4910 metres above sea level in Lima

Mirador de Los Andes was the highest point of the trip; a staggering 4910m above sea level, or as Bridget likes to call it: “blooming high!” The active volcano in the distance was a truly awesome sight.

A beautiful journey through Peru by train

A wonderful day spent on a train between Puno and Cusco gave the passengers some amazing countryside views.

The beautiful city of Cusco, where so many memories were made.

Winnie-The-Pooh and Piglet at Machu Picchu

Here’s the view that everyone knows. We were all speechless. Bucket list ticked and a dream come true!

Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu is so much more than the postcard picture shot we all know and love. The scale and remoteness of its location in the cloud forest is such a long way from our Hundred Acre world and was just spectacular to be amongst. This memory will be with Bridget forever.

Our lodge in the Amazon

After visiting so many different places, it was lovely to be able to recharge in our beautiful jungle lodge.

The perfect place to recharge and reflect on an amazing adventure.

The view from Bridget’s balcony, over the river, was a great place to sit and think about making new dreams.

For most of Bridget’s life, she’s had one real dream; to visit Peru and the mesmerising Machu Picchu. Now that’s ticked off her list, we’re wondering what else is in store!

Following our dreams and making them a reality is one of the biggest boosts we can give ourselves and our mental health. We hope you’re all making special plans and following them through, so you too feel an amazing sense of achievement and happiness.
