If you’ve followed me on my YouTube Channel, you’ll know how much I love to make random “on the road videos” (almost 5,000 travel videos since 2007!) well today I got reminiscing about the Inca Trail (I did it back in 2010) and came across a cool site in Peru/ South America. A bit of an introduction first for you. The company is called Peru For Less and they offer a load of customisable tour options including the Inca Trail of course (http://www.peruforless.com/ ). Here’s their latest video…
When I did the famous Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in 2010, I raved about it! Well, here in 2013 I have to say that it is STILL one of my travel highlights and while I share my stories, I want to inspire you to get out there and see it. Head to Peru and do the Inca Trail. It’s completely epic. Four days of travel bliss. Great views, food, history, friends and away from that world of offices that your university lecturers told you was your future! Sod that…here’s a few of my own highlights from the Inca Trail!
1. Dead Woman’s Pass
It was so misty I couldn’t even see the “dead woman”, but we hiked to the peak at Warmiwanuska on the second day of the Inca Trail, before an easy downward hike to our base. Read my full post here: Dead Woman’s Pass
Imagine partying in the middle of the Peruvian mountains on Christmas Eve with Men at Work and Paul McCartney songs blasting out, plus a Christmas Dinner! That’s what I did on the third night of the Inca Trail. A tad immense! Here’s my post on it: Christmas Eve at Winaywayna
3. Machu Picchu
And there it was, on my fourth day, covered in mist and clearing itself into the solemn sky. The lost city of the Incas, known today as Old Mountain or Machu Picchu. That moment. Loved it.
Cannot recommend the Inca Trail enough, or South America, just click on my link to find all my posts, I covered it in some detail! Gotta love the Inca Trail!
