Matt's back from Amsterdam, so our official training programme starts now!  It consists of long walks at the weekend, mixed with other stamina building exercises during the week.  I think finding time for the stamina building stuff is going to be our biggest challenge!

We received our next information pack from the British Heart Foundation this week, and it contained a contact list of all the people we'll be trekking with.  We've been speaking to some of them via email/facebook and they seem really fun, and it's also another girl's birthday as well as mine during the week we're away!  I think we're going to have a whale of a time. 

There's also an option for us to stay in Peru a couple of days longer after the trek, and travel on the Andean Explorer train for a day (owned by the Orient Express) and explore Lake Titicaca.  It sounds really good but we're thinking that once we've finished the trek we'll be good and ready to come back home!

There was also a list of suggested items to pack - and it was so long!  Lots of clothing, equipment and medical items!  We're getting some bits and pieces for Christmas, and there's a place where we can hire equipment from rather than buy it all in.

For those of you interested in what we'll be getting up to out there, we've updated the day to day itinerary (click on 'Inca Trail Trek' above).
