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

The frog meets the sexy guinea pigs

I really recommend this trip. I originally had doubts about it but I am very happy I've done it. The hiking is only tough on one day where you go quite high but on the other days you walk on flat ground alongside amazing landscape. The service is amazing and the food is extremely good, especially the soups and the ... Continue Reading
