Inka Trail

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!

Utmaningen

Att vandra i Peru, en upplevelse utan motsvarighet, ett minne utan like. Inkaleden som jag har lyckats att vandra tillsammans med en underbar grupp ledda av trygga och mycket erfarna guider. Har nu en kunskap om det gamla Inkariket men det finns mer kunskap att ta till sig.
En kultur med mycket mystik och naturen som prisas stort. Trappa ... Continue Reading

Paul, our guide was marvelous. He ... Continue Reading

I love the idea that they were very secluded and ... Continue Reading
