What can I say except that I had an amazing time in Peru. While planning a trip anywhere is always hard work, Peru I felt was more the “big leagues,” a destination that required that much more planning and research, and so for me this equates to a job well-done feeling indeed. I’ve been back home for just about 24 hours now and in that time I’ve slept a glorious 12 hours (I so needed that), grocery shopped, and did two loads of laundry, and all the while marveled that I was here.
-The Peruvian people, they were some of the nicest and kindest individuals I’ve ever met.
-Visiting Machu Picchu, a dream come true.
-Seeing history come alive before my eyes at the many incredible places we visited.
-Lima traffic…the cab ride to the airport from our hotel took 2 hours. Not the best sendoff if you ask me.
-The constant “moving around.” This was the first trip where I stayed in multiple hotels and took multiple flights, all in just over a week’s time. As a result of this and the more grueling style of touring (i.e. it was no Hawaii), I was pretty exhausted. It was worth it don’t get me wrong…but it was still tiring.
However, any lows were definitely outweighed by the highs.
I have a slew of posts and gorgeous photos coming your way but for now a sneak peek!
