I really liked the crew and loved the food but ... Continue Reading

I need a massage

The Inca Trail was an experience that I will never forget. Day 1 was a fairly relaxing day with us just getting use to walking the Trail.

Was never so glad to drop 30 pounds

When a friend of mine invited me to come along a South America trip, including a 4 day trek, I agreed without thinking twice. After finding out a porter wasn't carrying my bag as I was told, I still brought my entire traveling bag.
While it may have been tough at times, the delicious food and friendly guide helped ... Continue Reading

Walking the horse

Great experience ! Due mostly to Manny and Marco. They both went above and beyond. My first day was very rough (make sure all restaurants thoroughly cook your eggs). I had to rent a horse about halfway through the first day then sleep, sleep, sleep. The whole time Manny knew what to do.
I saw people walking back under ... Continue Reading
