Wow, how incredible! I started out the trek with food poisoning, and I could barely take in the beauty of day 1 but I felt supported by our guide Eber, the fellow trekkers, and by Mother Nature.
The chef made me special tea to help my stomach, and the next day and for the rest of the trip I felt amazing. To be in such a magnificent environment was such a blessing. Peru is such a magical land, Salkantay a powerful apu. The local people we met along the way always full of smiles. It was challenging to put in so many hours of hiking, but so rewarding, and I always felt taken care of.
I didn't know what to expect but now that my journey to Machu Picchu is complete, all I can say is that I'm amazed and in love with this land.
