After waiting what seemed like months to do a trip that I have dreamed about since I was a kid I was not disappointed, anyone thinking of attempting this trek be prepared to slog it out for the next 4 days, this is no easy task ! We were teased the first day with 10 km of walking which took us along a path which is not Inca original as the beginning of the path was used by the Peruvian government to create the railway from Aguas Calientes to Ollantaytambo we found all this out from our two guides Paul and Marco who I would highly recommend while other groups were running always trying to be the first at each check point they told us to take our time to stop and look around and take in the view as we would only ever do this once !

The second day is where the fun really begins we were told it was going to be tough and were tricked with the first hour with Inca flats up and down, a nice easy stroll in the park compared to the second part which felt like I was climbing vertical up a wall this was the killer over the 4 days ! Returning to camp that night I was suffering from altitude sickness feeling dizzy and sick but Paul knew exactly how to deal with me to make me feel right for day 3. Again day 3 feels like a walk in the park except you legs are aching from the day before but you are cheered up along the way with the beautiful ruins and the support the 2 guides give you !

I've forgot to mention the food that the porters provide people told me it was nice but what those guys can serve you all along the way is nothing short of amazing 3 course meals, is no lie, the food was great and the porters are there to serve you hand over foot, they were great. The 4th day you wake early to make your way to Machu Picchu and what a sight, I'm going to say no more, experience it yourself and fulfill your dream !
