I feel like words aren’t necessary as much for this post. I really enjoyed my trek up to Machu Picchu. The ruins themselves are surreal. I’m going to try something new and just let my pictures take you along on my journey.

After spending literally hours exploring Machu Picchu, we went back to Aguas Calientes, then got a train and bus back to Cusco.

Next stop, Ica.

    1. Wow four months! That sounds like it’ll be an amazing trip. For advice, I would say definitely do a lot of research and read up before you go. A lot of South American countries (Peru, included) want you to have certain visas and immunisations, etc. Also if you want to do tours or stay in hostels, TripAdvisor is the best place to look. If you are going to Peru definitely do a hike up to Machu Picchu, and visit the Amazon Rainforest, they were the highlights! The only things I wish we did different was make it a longer trip, and to have learnt more Spanish before we go! We did a lot, but we just wanted to keep doing more. We had to get back home though, cause my friend and I had to go back to university. We also took beginner Spanish lessons before we left for around a month. But it’s so much more faster when you’re speaking with locals. Also, our kiwi accents apparently made our Spanish even harder to understand. Funny that 😄
      I hope you guys have a fantastic trip!
