Are you following along on M & M's magical adventures with #babesinsouthamerica?  It's certainly worth reading Diary entry #1, when they made flower crowns on a rooftop in Colombia, Diary #2 where they galloped down to the Galapagos and Diary #3 where they celebrated work/life balance in Equador.

There comes a point in any journey where the magic, fun and adventure of forging new paths through travel unfurls like a flag in the wind and life seems to make more sense in a tangible way. This week's Diary Entry #4 finds M & M in the Peruvian Highlands posted up on land arguably as old as time itself and spirtually connected to the people who inhabit it in a palpabale way.  Read on to find out how these two talented ladies discovered magic is real while trekking through a massively stunning Peruvian landscape. And maybe, just maybe, there's something to understanding the higher you trek on this Earth the cloesr you get to something much bigger than yourself.

The Report

New Venue Alert! Welcome to Hotel B, a historic national monument and restored mansion reflecting the glamour of the 20's. This arts-boutique hotel is in the heart of a bohemian revival neighborhood surrounded by art galleries and only blocks from the Pacific ocean. The hotel houses it's own art collection and is directly linked to the Lucia de la Puente Gallery. The House is a pristine example of a Belle Époque mansion, originally constructed in 1914 and built as a summer seaside retreat. Thus it captures the celebratory spirit of the 1920s. So Gatsby lovers rejoice, because this venue is for you!

The team who reconstructed the property was composed of sculptors from the Fine Arts Academy and a team of carpenters led by an Italian master woodcrafter. The project is considered a trademark of restoration by the INC (Peru ́s Historic Building Society). The interior has the feeling of restored Grand Dame with a cheeky twist, integrating vintage and designer furniture with a unique art collection. The hotel is set with soft seaside colors, grand windows, and tall ceilings.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION:  Hotel B  in a neighborhood that is in a protected historic area, chock full of historic homes, boutiques, restaurants, museums and galleries. So both bohemian and beach bum guests alike will appreciate this venue setting.

HOW WILL MY GUESTS GET HERE? Hotel B is 40 minutes from Lima's international airport, and close to Miraflores, the Financial Center, & Historic Downtown.

The Report

Head South for the winter because this global getaway is very popular around Christmas time (then again from March - August.) You will need a passport, a sleep mask, a bloody mary and good book for this trip. But it will be oh so worth the miles you will rack up on your frequent flyer program. Titilaka is the perfect venue if you "want to get lost" and to be in complete communication with nature.

Titilaka is a luxury, art filled eco-lodge and boutique property, located on its very own private peninsula with 4 acres of grounds. It is 20 miles  from the bustling commercial center of Puno, Peru. Titilaka is a tranquil oasis on Lake Titicaca, surrounded by the natural wildlife of the lake. The location is ideal for the party host who is an eco-lover and wants to witness the traditional lifestyles of the region's local villagers.

The building is an all-inclusive experience Lodge where most of the amenities and furniture have been made by local communities such as the Titilakas and the Copamaya (textiles). The building was completely restored and designed by Peruvian designers Jordi Puig and Sandra Masías, the concept is by Ignacio Masías.

PILLOW TALK: Titilaka has 18 suites, all have beautiful views of the majestic Titicaca Lake.

HOW WILL YOUR GUESTS GET THERE?: Titilaka is reached by car in 40 minutes from the Puno Train Station or 90 minutes by road from the nearest airport in Juliaca (JUL). Early arrivals arrive to the lodge on a scenic route by car and boat. This transfer is more of a two hour excursion that takes you on the Capachica peninsula and across the lake visiting the Uros Titino Islands and the National Reserve by boat.
