Vivir la vida

Un comienzo dudoso, no estaba convencido de hacer el camino, venia como acompañante. Todo cambio en el momento que comenzó la aventura. Se tornó una aventura, un desafío personal, una cuestión de orgullo propio. Difícil el camino lleno de adversidades y muchas ganas de bajar las manos todo el tiempo. Hacia mucho que no sentía tanto temor a no poder ... Continue Reading

Papito rico

Fantastic experience ! Our guides Raul and Marco helped us through the whole walk and also shared the history of the many ruins as well as Inca culture in general. The difficulty of the walk made Machu Picchu even more magical, and the walk itself was even more special than the famous ruins at the end.
I highly recommend ... Continue Reading

The guides were amazing, giving us history lessons along the ... Continue Reading

One lazy leg

Good hiking, good food, good guide and good times ! We were the lazy legs team, but after a little slip I had a little issue with one of my legs. Really, it was a blessing in disguise, because I got to have our guide rub icy cool cream on my leg. That alone was worth it !
After ... Continue Reading

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

Lazy legs

Rain or shine the Inca Trail is amazing. Connecting with a large group of travelers, porters and guides. I felt like I was apart of something very significant. I feel I lucked out with my guide Paul. His knowledge, enthusiasm, humor and passion made the trip what it is. The history he taught me really opened me up to a ... 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
