Ever faithful to making the tourist's experience the best it can be, he told us, "10 minutes my friends". Sure enough, the wise Flecher ... Continue Reading

Physically challenging but amazing

In the lead up to the trip, the communication ... Continue Reading

Don’t be a candy-a$$

Here's what's up. If you are thinking about doing the Inca Trail but are concerned about it being too difficult here are Jesse's words of advice: Don't be a candy-a$$. Just do it. Yes it's challenging. Train for it. Get acclimatized. Bring Imodium. Bring Ibuprofen. Or Naproxen if you have it.
