Ill be going to peru soon for a week. This is my first time flying and i'm a bit nervous. It's gonna be atleast 8 1/2 hours till i get there from NJ, i guess im a bit nervous because of the fact of the whole time sitting there in the plane above ground.


Has anyone ever been to peru? Im wondering how it differs from USA. And any tips on flying?

Thanks

dude dont be nervous about flying, its 99.99...%safer then driving a car

its just like sitting in a long car ride, which u can get up to walk, and go to the bathroom, other then a little bit of humming from the turbine engines, most people try and sleep most of it

have an awesome time dude


[edit] yes your ears are going to hurt as youv never climbs to such altitudes before, bring some gum and fake-yawn constantly as your taking off and landing and youll be fine

I went to Peru a year and a half ago. It's a fantastic time. I went with a tour group, so we got a pretty comprehensive view of the history and the traditions and what not. Eat the guinea pig, stay away from the alpaca. Don't drink the water there, but try and drink as much Inca Cola as you can, because it's awesome. Don't be afraid of flying though, it's so rare anything goes wrong. I've been flying my entire life (25 years) and have never had a problem. Just try not to freak out and you'll be good. Bring along an iPod or something, listen to music to take your mind off of it.

Oh, and make sure to stock up on Coca tea or coca candy. It really helps with the altitude difference. Also will give you an energy boost like you wouldn't believe. Don't take pictures of anyone unless you're willing to pay them and watch out for street vendors.

Just watch out for men with turbans and/or bombs. And if you hear the pilot say "Oh sh*t", start making your phone calls.

Other than that, have fun!

Thanks man, im gonna be staying in Lince, it's part of Lima. Im going to be travelling to Wachu, Cusco, and a few other places. Im peruvian myself so i wont have a hard time communicating with other people there since i speak spanish fluently. Inca Cola > Coke? Its one of the best sodas out there.

Can you tell me how it differs from U.S.A. Ive pretty much been living here in NJ my whole life and im not shure if i will get used to Peru quickly or ill get bored soon.

"Hey man, if one of the engines goes out, how far will the other one take us?"
"All the way to the scene of the crash! Which is pretty lucky, because that's where we're headed! I bet we beat the paramedics by a good half hour! We're haulin' ass!"

Inca Cola is a banana flavoured soda, so take that how you will. I think it slaughters coke, and I love coke.

How does it differ from the USA? Every way possible. Lima is essentially a slum. It's really a little depressing. It has its moments, but you need to be careful. I thought it was fun walking around and seeing the cities I was in. But we went to a different city pretty much every day, so I didn't really have the time to get bored. But I personally enjoyed every moment of it (except when I got some crazy jungle virus in Cuzco). There's lots of beggars and people on the streets trying to sell the same stuff as everyone else. They can be a nuisance. If you go out to eat and bring leftovers outside the restaurant people will come up to you asking for it. The scenery is all interesting though. Especially Cuzco.

Besides the unlikely event of a plane crash, you'll be fine.

If this does happen, hope to god you're over a body of water so you have I chance of surviving



Aren't you more likely to survive over land?

So, for your first flight which your scared about, and you fly to Peru from the US? An internal flight might be better for a first time flier.

I'm pretty sure they keep you inside during the entire flight.

The actual flying part is boring. The boarding process is aggravating. But I would give my left nut to spend a week in Peru. Have fun man.
