      Itinerary

      Welcome to Lima, Peru
      Arrival

      July 12th, 2022  Jorge Chavez International Airport 


      Lima, the capital of Peru, lies on the country's arid Pacific coast. Though its colonial center is preserved, it's a bustling metropolis and one of South America’s largest cities. It's home to the Museo Larco collection of pre-Columbian art and the Museo de la Nación, tracing the history of Peru’s ancient civilizations. The Plaza de Armas and the 16th-century cathedral are the heart of old Lima Centro.


      Lima, the City of Kings, has plenty on offer to satisfy the keen traveler’s appetite. Whether it’s the world-class food, nightlife, colonial-style architecture or surfing, this Peruvian gem really does provide something for everyone.

      Honestly, I had no preconceived idea how I would enjoy this trip. First, I hate the cold, so why you ask that I paid an OBSCENE amount of money to go on a cold weather trip? Two reasons, 1...I'm going with Haitian Nomad! 2. What other opportunity I would have to hit all 7 continents! When I tell you, I trust Haitian Nomad Impeccably, if he tells me to do it.....I DO IT! We will figure out the rest later and usually there is nothing to figure out, because they have done it for you. When I tell you, I enjoyed myself!!! This is an understatement. The vibe of the 15 passengers traveling was AMAZING. Granted I knew a few of the people from previous trips, but when I tell you everyone was FAMILY by the time we left the ship! Even the passengers and the crew considered us FAMILY! This trip far exceeded my expectations, the ship was beautifully appointed, it was not a "working" expedition boat like some others. It was a small luxury ship! The cabins were huge in comparison to some of the ships I've sailed previously and very easy to navigate as it was a small vessel. My suite was on the forth floor, dining on the 5th or 7th and elevators worked great! YES, ELEVATORS!!! Now let's talk about the dining experience. Again, I was expecting to be fed, but was I expecting 5 star cuisine! The chefs were outstanding. Presentations were nicely plated, hell even the buffet bars were nicely done. That is saying a lot, since I don't particularly care for buffets. Thankfully that was not always the dining options. I mean, we even had lobster tails( 3)...Shhhh! Also, caviar on the seafood night!!! Like I said, Blown away by the meals, so much so, brought back a whole 12 pounds to show it! Now, let's talk about the Expeditions, now I'm not the fittest/fattest person in the world, but I felt safe and supported by the expedition team. They made sure I got in and out of the Zodiac safely every time. They literally walked me up the rocks to make sure I touched the Antarctica peninsula. Just in case I have a few purist friends that claim being in a zodiac all the time is not being in Antarctica! That's not all, I learned every day about different types of seals, whales, penguins, birds, glaciers and Icebergs, not to mention exciting history about expeditions years before us. Who knew that I was kin to the gentoo penguins! We saw wild life in their natural habitats, laying on icebergs in the middle of the waters or playing and laying eggs on land. I think we even saw couple of Orca whales trying to "play" with a Humpback whale! Took a helicopter ride over the peninsula and even willingly jumped into 2 degrees freezing waters, to take a polar plunge! Antarctica owes me ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!! WAIT....I guess I should say something about the sailing through the drake passage....well, maybe I won't, I think of the 15, I may have been the only one that slept thru the entire ordeal and didn't get sick once. I told you, I'm a gentoo.....a "Little" rocking of the ship.....LOL If you ever have the opportunity to explore Antarctica with Haitian Nomad and Quark Expedition, JUST DO IT!!! One take away for anyone that is interested in going. You really only need one pair of waterproof pants and maybe 2 pairs of long johns. Honestly, I was so hot in that parka coat they give us, I was ready to strip naked and jump in the water every day! Well that's all.....JUST DO IT!!!

      If I had to use one word, it would be, INCREDIBLE! While we only see and experience the end result, I know the countless hours and dedication that takes place behind the scenes to create the EPIC ADVENTURES that Haitian Nomad continues to deliver. People thought I was crazy to want to travel to Antarctica, but when my CVO, Richard Cantave, presented the opportunity, I knew it would be a dream turned into reality. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU for helping me cross the 7th continent off my list!

      The trip to Antarctica on the Ultramarine with Quark was awesome. The staff, the safety, the accommodations, the food, the service- all FIVE STAR! But what really made this a trip to remember- EPIC, if you will- was the vibe and cohesiveness of the Haitian Nomads group. I am so happy that I booked through HN. My trip would not have been the same otherwise. I came as a stranger and left as part of a traveling family. This was my first HN trip but will definitely NOT be my last. From now on, when I look for a destination, I will begin with HN.

      There are no words that come close to describing how amazing this trip was. Pictures don’t do it justice. You have to go to experience for yourself. What’s more is that you must go through Haitian Nomad which has clearly positioned themselves as top class provider for such a trip. Everything about Haitian Nomad is 5-Star and they have transformed from a travel service to a global movement. They have been and will continue to be our travel provider of choice for a well thought out, curated travel experience.

      This trip to Rwanda and Uganda was another amazing Haitian Nomad trip!! Everything from the accommodations to the transportation was on point as always! Being able to see two African countries in one trip is always sweet! The people of Rwanda and Uganda were very welcoming and our guide was knowledgeable and personable. Checking off another bucket list activity of gorilla trekking was a once in a lifetime event and we will never forget how we felt as we were able to see the gorillas in their natural habitat and stand less than 5 feet away from them! The history of Rwanda is one that everyone should learn about as the people have shown a resiliency that I do not think exists anywhere else! Thank you for another amazing trip Richard! We cannot wait for our next trip with the Haitian Nomad!!

      I have been traveling with Haitian Nomad since 2016. Within these 4 years they have built themselves a very solid reputation. I have recommended friends who came back with praising reviews. Originally centered on Haiti, they now have a global imprint with well-curated trips to discover the beauty and history of some dope locations. On Richard's trips, careful consideration is always taken for our security as well as our health. We see that illustrated even more in 2020 as we deal with the current pandemic. On our most recent trip, we made sure to be in complete compliance with both the US and Senegal by getting tested for COVID-19 before, during and after our trip. All of us left and came with back with negative results. As a healthcare provider, I felt in trusted hands the whole time and also did not feel that our group was compromising the health of the country we were visiting. The itineraries usually includes a mix of activity and relaxation (sometimes hardcore rejoicing at night lol). The best part is you always leave Richard's trips with unique travel experiences as well as lifelong friendships.
