It was my first time to Peru and I don't speak Spanish - as a result I was often confused about logistics and unclear about what was an "add-on" to the experience and what was included. Hindsight 20/20 I wish I ... Continue Reading

What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger

5 days of exhaustion but good times. Day one was chilled, camped in a beautiful valley and hiked up to a super beautiful lagoon.
