Only after finally arriving to Machu Picchu, and seeing it inundated with freshly showered tourists straight off the bus, did I fully appreciate the significance of the Inca Trail adventure. I got to arrive to Machu Picchu the way the Quechua did, through the mountains.
I didn't know what I was getting myself into for that second day of ... Continue Reading

Today was one of the best travel experiences of my life. Standing at the Sun Gate, with clouds covering all that lay beneath us, I turned to the amazing Flecher and asked, "should we wait ?"

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