The ‘multiculture’ of our group

I had an amazing time on the trip. From the longest, most strenuous day of hiking of my life to shot gunning a beer at the highest elevation I have ever been to never understanding how the game "mafia" worked to playing football and beating Paul's team in a great match where I could barely breathe while playing to "holy ...

Paul’s Peruvian parade

I was very excited to have the tour pick me up at the airport in Cusco upon my arrival. Felt like I was relaxing the second I stepped out of the airport and could ignore all the heckling taxi cab drivers trying to seduce me into their taxis... I simply pointed to a man holding a sign with my name ... Continue Reading

Holy water, lazy legs

The adventure on the Inca Trail was nothing like I've experienced before. From the heavy pack, to the second day, to the food, and of course our guide. Paul made the experience unforgettable, not that Pachamama doesn't do this herself, but Paul made it. His knowledge was delivered with passion and his humor was tolerable. Ha !
We made ... Continue Reading

And another detail, senores

Holding hands, in one single chain of exhausted travelers, we slowly motioned sideways up the last ten paces of the magnificent, marathon-long Inca Trail to reach the final destination of our odyssey: the Sun Gate. Standing on top of that hill, over-viewing the prominent, lost Inca city of Machu Picchu, no words were needed to express the sense of pride ... Continue Reading

Woho

The Inca trek was amazing ! Even though it was pretty hard I really enjoyed the trip. The first day was easy, which was really good. I'm not really a hiker, and therefore I really needed a easy start. I didn't have the proper equipment, which was a bit challenging. But I got a lot of help and tips from ... Continue Reading

El Camino del Inca una experiencia maravillosa, un duro y largo camino que vale la pena.

Lazy legs team on da place !

Super aventure avec une équipe de ouf et un staff déjanté ! L'Inca trail d'une longueur de 43km nous a bien fait transpirer mais j'ai passé d'excellents moments au sein d'un groupe cosmopolite dans le même état d'esprit que moi.
