Peru happened to me seven months ago. We were looking to spend a week in a different way, in a far enough place. After a first stop in Miami, where we had enough time to go for a swim in the warm waters of the Atlantic, we continued on a plane to Lima. Six hours later, around midnight, we landed in Lima, and waited another six for the first flight to Cusco. The five day hiking trip that followed, came with impressive historical sites, and breathtaking views of the Andes. The trip was exhausting, but our excitement overcame any physical limitation. Along the way, we spent the nights and ate comida tipica with the peruvians, met people from five different continents and and learnt about the culture, music and crafts of this amazing country. A week was not enough, but each day was different and soul filling. This story will take us from sea level to the mountain tops of the Andes, overlooking the Inca valleys. Enjoy!
