Awesome trek

I had a blast on this trip! The hiking was fantastic and the sights were unbelievable.
The first day was short but fun, and the optional hike up to the lake was completely worth it. The second day was one of the most challenging, but rewarding, days of my life. Reaching 4600 m at the pass was well worth ... Continue Reading

Worth the pain

As I write this, my legs and feet barely move but I don't need any time for reflection to know that the experience has been well worth the physical demands. Truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and an amazing opportunity to shut off the world, challenge yourself physically (and mentally!), and embrace new culture and history.
The trek was very scenic ... Continue Reading

We’ll make it if He carries us

It was absolutely amazing. If you are looking for a difficult trek, look elsewhere.
They carry your stuff and do almost everything you could want them to do. I'm 20 and backpack so it was quite easy, but for my dad who is in great shape for a 60-year-old, the trip was difficult due to the high altitude.

Der alptraum meines sommers

So hatte ich mir meinen Urlaub nicht vorgestellt! Erholung sollte es sein, eine schoene und gemuetliche Zeit wollte ich mir machen. Nix da. Meine Freundin Dagmar hat mir einen dicken Strich durch die Rechnung gemacht und uns auf dem Inka Trail eingebucht!
Es war eine harte Zeit. Ich habe gelitten. Schlafen im Zelt, Riesen-Rucksack schleppen, immer nur hinauf auf ... Continue Reading
