It’s been on my bucket list for some time. It’s something I’m willing to wait for, cos clearly I wont be hiking into Machu Picchu with Little Vick on my back gasping for air and coming down with an attack of the chucks, head spins and nose bleeds (otherwise known as altitude sickness – wow I’m selling this place so well from the get go aren’t I?). I like to think of myself as a bit of a trekker and this, I hear, is the ultimate. Besides, the Inca civilization…. what a fascinating part history which I known a big fat nothing about. I feel way naive right now. I must get educated.
I have been reminded of my desires for Machu Picchu after talking with a friend who has recently returned from visiting the site. She completed the 4 day trek with minimal training and knowledge about what she was getting herself into. We decided the latter was probably for the best. Apart from gasping for air at times (seriously she was up in the clouds) she LOVED the adventure. I love adventure. So this Sunday I wouldn’t might a bit more of it in my life.
Have you made the trek into Machu Picchu? Is it on your bucket list?
Where are you dreaming of this Sunday?
