Conquering Machu Picchu


I did it!  I made it to Machu Picchu and back.  I can’t even begin to explain what a beautiful country Peru is.  It was mindblowing, heart-achingly beautiful.  And Machu Picchu was absolutely stunning.

This trip meant so much to me.  I booked it on a whim in December and really didn’t have a huge itinerary.  Machu Picchu was the crowning glory of the adventure.  It was such a huge milestone for me to be able to take that kind of journey given the fact that a year and a half ago I couldn’t even walk on my own.  What a great feeling to accomplish something that people only dream of.

And I ate cuy and alpaca.  More on that later.

In the words of the late Steve Jobs, “Wow, wow, wow”.
