South America – Machu Picchu

Many people I’ve met have done amazing 4-day or 2-day treks up to Machu Picchu. My friend CG booked far in advance and was able to hike the Inca trail.

 

 

I took the train. Then the bus. And then I had a nap at the top of Machu Picchu. But damn, I got to honour my Dad and it was still amazing.

The giant line to get into Machu Picchu at 6:30am. No one tells you about that …

Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool.

Couldn’t see the sunrise due to the fog, but it sure made the valley below look beautiful.

Stamping my own passport at Machu Picchu. Totally legit.

Just perfect. Six more World Wonders to go.
