Peru | 2014
For my first, but definitely not last, excursion to South America I could not be more pleased to have visited Peru. Beginning this journey in the bustling city of Lima, I was immersed in culinary deliciousness. The next stop was Cusco, a quiet city filled with culture and narrow streets. Then I was baptized by nature on a five day Salkantay Trail trek. Finally, I traveled to Aguas Calientes and hit the apex of this epic journey...the mysterious and breathtaking Machu Piccu.
After months of itchin' to travel, I wandered to Peru in May, 2014. Peru has everything from the Pacific Ocean, to glaciers and mountain summits at 4,600M, to humid jungles with mosquitos and rain. You literally are packing your bathing suit and flip flops right next to your insulated thermals.
