The group consists of 9 persons, plus our
Tucan Travel-guide Patricia.
Most group members don't know each other until the start of this
although some of them travel as a couple.
(jingle producer, Netherlands)
Does eat everything, but especially fries with mayonaise
and ketchup. Even fries that other people don't eat, he likes! Particularly in combination with
orange juice. Likes to yell in open enironment a historical jingle, like
'Avro maandag, de beste maandag'.
Wel, that's me! I travel together
with Diederick (we are good friends for many
years already). We are a kind of anti-poles of
each other. Maybe that's why we're such good
travel partners... Me, I'm sometimes a little
bit introvert, but then I might be enjoying
myself most of everybody!
||Femke (management consultant,
Is Otto's girlfriend. They both really need a holiday. They've
been working very hard for several months. Femke is one of the people who
make loads of pictures. Some of those are placed on this site, too.
Otto (IT-consultant, Nederland)
Always positive, even when he
is ill for several weeks. Well-organized -
so when I was broke, he could lend me
some money. Appeared to be the best pan-fluteplayer
in the group. One of the reasons he went to Peru
was to exercise his Spanish - and we liked
||Jenny (legal employee,
Typical British, quite
decently, won't do any lunatic things. When we
go to a swimming pool, she is the only one who
uses the stairs into the water. She needs half
an hour to get into the water. Later we
recognize that se only seems to be like that,
and that in fact she's quite funny.
||Ronald (system operator,
Seemed to be quite shy
at first sight, but appeared not to be at all!
He and Diederick were the only ones who climbed
onto a waterfall during Inca Trail - and fell
down immediate. Flemish language appears to be
quite different of Dutch sometimes, resulting in
some funny conversations.
||Mike (fire worker,
Travels together with
Ronald, but they're not a couple - although that
appeared only after a while. Mike is the groups
strong man. Without any problems he lifted
Joanne up on a stairs with 1.000 steps
when she can't walk anymore. He is quite silent,
but very interested.
Gets a nickname: 'Kiwi'.
Funny and odd, and also very intimate with
everybody. So it had to happen: during this trip
se falls in love with Diederick (they're still
together!) She's also popular because she was so
smart to take a CD-walkman with her, with a lot
of good music.
Is the only one who is
still studying (but she had a good job in a
cafe!) As a result of that she has some extra
freedom: when she falls in love with a local
guide, she can decide to stay in Peru and go
back to 'her' Juan in the jungle.
||Patricia (travel guide,
Has to do a lot of nasty
work, when Peruvians screw up their promises:
when our bus leaves too early, or when officials
on the airport irritate. Is a little insecure
about her work, but we are very proud of her!
Joins our group a week
later. Seems to have some difficulties
with that, because the rest of the group is
quite close to each other then. During Inca
Trail I join here quite some
