Do you Peru? Yes, we do!

Yesterday, in the wee hours of the morning, The Lost Girls made major strides towards departing the country by snagging seats on Lima-bound COPA aircraft (official departure date: June 20th). True, the tickets weren’t as cheap as on a budget,no-frills airline–$550 from Miami, $650 from New York–but they were the most reasonable fares we’d found since starting the search several months ago. While they’d seemed oh-so-backpacker at first, we’d decided against booking the RTW–or ’round-the-world–ticket so popular with our Aussie and British pals.

Not only would this “cheap seat” require us to shell out $3500 before ever stepping foot out of the US, any changes to our itinerary would jack up the price even more. Our current plan to string together one-way fares ends up being even cheaper than an RTW, and it allow us to change our minds a hundred times without penalties. Of course, purchasing international one-way tickets almost certainly assures that we’ll be strip searched at security checkpoint, but that’s a small price to pay for lower airfares, no?
