Free wallpaper – Christmas theme No. 2

While I am working on the third part of my Salkantay Trek diary series, I made another free wallpaper for you, folks.  I designed this one with components of some Christmas candy canes and a mistletoe. Have you ever know that mistletoe is actually a parasite and that the kissing under a mistletoe comes from the Nordic mythology? And what’s the deal with candy? One version says that this candy was “invented” in the second half of the 17th century in Germany. I say: have fun with the wallpapers! You can use the wallpaper both for private and commercial purposes as well. Crediting is not required but of course, appreciated. In this case I’d love it if you share this blogpost on social media, folks.

Thus, I am forced to produce wallpapers for the most common devices and resolutions. So just download them and check them on your devices, folks.

This is the second part of my diary series about my trekking trip when I was hiking to Machu Picchu. Click here to jump to the first part of the diary, folks. This part it about the second day in Cusco we spent to acclimatize ourselves for the trek. As I wrote in the travel guide about the Salkantay Trek, it is advisable to stay at least two days in Cusco to acclimatize a bit before you start with your trek. Of course, this applies to all trekking activities in the mountains with altitudes higher than 3000 m (9800 ft), not only to Salkantay Trek. But now, let’s continue with the diary.
