I've been spending a lot of time lately trying to figure out what/when/where/how we are going to plan our trip to Peru. We've made some decisions but there are other more specific things that are yet to be decided. I like to plan things, where as Doug likes to plan as you go. I couldn't imagine going some place and not know where you're going to stay or how you're going to get from one place to another. I also don't know how far in advance you need to reserve stuff like rooms and transportation or if it's needed at all. I'm pretty sure reservations are required when staying around Machu Picchu as that's the most touristy area and probably the first to get filled up. I found a hotel that's actually owned by someone that's from Seattle so we may stay there. Here's a summary of what we've got so far.

Apr 28/29 - Fly to Cusco and end up in Ollantaytambo
Apr 30 - Machu Picchu
May 01 - Train to Puno (near Lake Titicaca)
May 02-04 - Do stuff around Lake Titicaca
May 05 - Bus to Arequipa
May 06 - Do stuff in Arequipa
May 07 - Fly to Lima
May 08 - Do stuff in Lima
May 09 - Head home (16 hr layover in Panama City so we'll probly do stuff there and get a hotel)
May 10 - Get back to Seattle
