Location: Machu Picchu, Peru
Year: January 2012
Memory: After completing the five day Inca Trail with two of my closest friends and travel buddies, Alex and Louise; we descended on Machu Picchu. The Inca Trail was one of the most incredible adventures I have ever experienced: waking up to phenomenal snow-capped mountains, exploring Inca ruins, challenging your body and mind at high altitudes, wiping out downhill in heavy rainfall, showering with wet-wipes, sipping cacao tea and eating like queens.
*Note: We hadn’t showered or used proper facilities in days so were a bit soggy and smelly after trekking in the rain.
