A dream come through

Walking the Inca Trail and visiting Machu Picchu has been a long time dream of mine. I was not disappointed. We had a good briefing which covered the necessities of our hike and gave us the necessary information. However, we would have appreciated knowing about the weight limits in advance. It would have helped us plan better.

Beauty and the Beast

My Machu Picchu adventure had been an amazing one. The glacier view was breathtaking as well as the scenery along the way! However, the trek was challenging, just like a monstrous beast getting in my way to get to the "beauty".
