Wispy's Excellent Peru Adventure

Posted on November 25, 2013 by Rainbow Sandals Australia | 0 Comments

Our Byron Bay mate Wispy is in America on a great big adventure, and every once in a while, he’ll check in with us to give us a lowdown on the action.

Recently, he found himself riding the waves in Peru and at the top of Machu Picchu. Were we envious? Maybe just a little more than a lot. But heck, we're psyched that he's out there traveling and having a cracking time!

Here’s the update he sent us. What can we say? The bloke’s boss.


Hi RS Oz,

I just thought I’d send you a couple of photos of my trip to Peru.

I took my Rainbows all the way to the top of Mt Machu Picchu. I was hoping for some sunshine to get a nice clear pic, but it rained all day. I hiked for 13 hours that day and it rained the whole time. (I didn’t do it in my Rainbows, I just put them on at the top for a bit hahaha)

Excuse the mozzie bites hahaha

Before that, I was in Lobitos in the north of Peru. It’s a small fishing village, really dry, pretty much the desert with oil fields on land and a few offshore oil rigs. The waves are good, Peru has point breaks all along the coast and the best of them are up north near Lobitos. I stayed there for about 2 weeks, then the waves went flat, so I headed off to see Machu Picchu.

Machu Picchu is amazing! It’s full of tourists, but the ruins and the surrounding jungle is crazy, really a must see!

I’m back in California at the moment, hopefully heading down to Mexico in Dcember, then home in January.

Hope all is well for you.

Chat soon,
