It’s almost that time! So wraps up five countries in just over four weeks. Needless to say, this whirlwind has been rather exhausting. Constantly moving and constant variety, which I love, but I’m ready to go home for a tiny bit and actually stay in the same place for more than two days. (At least until the stir-craziness sets in again…)
|The amazing Sacred Valley in Peru.|
We rode two overnight buses from Baños, Ecuador, to Lima for one night and caught a plane to Cuzco, which ended up being one of my favorite cities so far. This trip has practically been a big bus ride down two continents!
|I aim to find a good lookout wherever I go 🙂 Cuzco, Peru.|
After only a couple nights there, we made the “cheap” backpackers’ trek to Machu Picchu. Ha, that’s putting it lightly. It actually amounted to riding a van for over six hours through the Sacred Valley and a winding one lane mountain road inches from the cliffs, walking eleven kilometers each way to and from Aguas Calientes, walking uphill/up stairs for over an hour to Machu Picchu (I keep trying to convince myself it is the elevation that is making me wheeze, notthe fact that I am severely out of shape… What?)
|So glad you can’t see how sleep deprived I am here. Machu Picchu, no big deal.|
