Wicks is an English pub in the heart of Lima brewing and serving up traditional British style beers and pub grub, and it truly makes me feel like I’m back at home.
There are so many places in Barranco that I still need to try, so this is actually a much smaller list than it should be. I have the longest checklist of places to visit but there just isn’t enough time to visit them all. We have some firm favourites here that we keep getting drawn back to time and again, and we forget to try new spots. Probably a good problem to have though! If you have any favourites, please let me know in the comments below.
This following guide is to go alongside my List on Google Maps, ‘A Slice of Peru’s Barranco Highlights’. It explains my choices in more detail and shares any extra information I may have posted before. Links for the different locations are available through the map and I hope this helps give you some inspiration for your next trip to Barranco.

I love eating and tasting dishes from different places, so when I find a location that has multiple food places in one space, I am so happy!
Colonia & Co. is a great example of this and is located inside an old house in the heart of Barranco. It’s home to three different food spots, plus a bookshop and a clothes store all linked into one space.
This guide is to go alongside my List on Google Maps, ‘A Slice of Peru’s Miraflores Highlights’. It just explains my choices in slightly more detail and shares any extra information I may have written previously. Links for the different locations are available through the map. I hope this helps give you some inspiration for your next trip to Miraflores!

Peru is just full of musical talent.
But I’m sure you already knew that.
I have discovered so many great Peruvian artists since living here and I would love to share a few of them with you. Some of the following artists are famous worldwide, and others are more nationally well-known, but all have their own Latin flavour and style.
Happy January everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and that you’re looking forward to a great 2017.
My family back in the UK have had some super cold, frosty days recently, while in contrast we’re experiencing the hottest January for 19 years I believe!! It’s crazy hot and humid and the only thing that makes it bearable is ice cream. A lot of ice cream!
If you don’t have time in the day at the moment for a full blown Christmas film but you still need a festive shot, then look no further than YouTube. Bite size snippets of Christmas in the forms of both vlogs and static videos means that you don’t have to go without. Plus, there is so much content to choose from. To help you out, I’ve picked a few of my British favourites, with a brief description, that really help to give me my daily Christmas fix from back home!
For me, Christmas isn’t complete without a mince pie… or 10. In Peru, these amazing little guys just do not exist so I have to make them myself. If my parents visit just before Christmas they bring me out a jar of mincemeat so I can just make the pastry and they’re ready to go. However, this year this was not the case so I made my mincemeat filling from scratch.
Now for those of you who are wondering what the heck a mince pie is, let me elaborate. Continue reading
I know that Lima is not the first place you would think of when booking your Christmas holidays, but if you do happen to find yourself here over the festive period there are some locations that keep the Christmas spirit going throughout December!! It really helps being away from my family over Christmas if I can find places that fill me with seasonal cheer or remind me of home, so here are my picks for doing just that.
