Machu Picchu a Decade Later

6 Comments 16 September 2014

I’m in the same place a decade later, sitting on the terraces of Machu Picchu. The scenery has the same awe-inspiring feel. And once again for the 2nd time I am left wondering ‘how did the Incas do that?’ as I gaze upon the stone architecture. There is a constant din of noise filling the [...]

Inca Trail Alternate Route

4 Comments 11 September 2014

Taking the Inca Trail through the Sun Gate to Machu Picchu seems to be on everyone’s bucket list these days. The problem – not everyone can go on the Inca Trail (even if you plan it months in advance) as there are only 200 tourist permits given out a day for the trail. If you [...]

Week In-Stagram Review Quarry Trail

7 Comments 27 June 2014

We climbed high into the mountains of Peru for this Instagram Quarry Trail week in review.  The air was so thin our bodies struggled to adjust and I found myself only being able to walk 30 steps before I had to stop as my heart was beating so fast and I couldn’t seem to get [...]

This week marks the beginning of a new Niece Project!  Megan and I left Minnesota and headed south for Lima Peru to start our journey.  As soon as we got on the plane and took off I was reminded of how much fun these trips are for me.  It didn’t take long before Megan had [...]
