Families travel for so many reasons. Many of us simply want the thrill and excitement that comes from being in new places. Others are searching for something else.
One family, who calls themselves The Three Dreamers, are heading to Peru seeking healing, a creative outlet, and a healthier lifestyle. Here’s Molly to explain all about it.
My name is Molly, I’m 19 years old, and this coming March my mom, Natalia, and my 7-year old brother, Nicholas are taking a giant leap towards a new life. We are leaving our current home in Brooklyn, NY and heading for new frontiers in Peru.
We are packing up and getting rid of our garbage to start a new life in Cusco, Peru (not too far away from Machu Picchu).
Why are we going to Peru?
We’ve wanted a different surrounding for a while now in order to heal ourselves as a family, mentally and physically. We decided on Peru because of the art, the skills, the culture, the history, and the food of this mystical land and country. The pushing drive to go to Peru was because of our backgrounds in art and design.
Natalia, my mom, is an extraordinary fashion designer and me (Molly), I’m a fine artist. In Peru, we’ll have access to amazing, handcrafted fabric and the needed tools to make art will be affordable.
The other top reason we decided on Peru (this is a major reason) was for health! We are going to restore ourselves and Nicholas back to perfect health! Peru holds a massive quantity of fresh, un-processed fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Amongst the fresh foods that are readily available in the Peruvian markets are superfoods.
Superfoods are truly nature’s gift to the world and humans. Some superfoods that you can find in Peru are cacao (unprocessed chocolate), maca, yacon, Incan berries, and much more. With these tools available at an affordable price, we have our minds set on living a totally healthy lifestyle. Who knows? We’re even thinking of meeting up with some Shamans!
We plan to live in Peru for a year. During our time there, we plan to experience a new culture, have fun, learn Spanish, work on our art and design, travel around the surrounding areas and give Nicholas a fantastic education abroad, where he will most likely go to a local Peruvian school.
After the one year is finished, we don’t think we’ll be returning to America. We might stay in Peru or we might travel and live in another country.
