I’ve generally used this blog for two functions. Football related posts and travel related posts. It’s not football season so that must mean it is time for another vacation.
One Saturday I am leaving for Peru where I will be hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. From Miami I’ll fly overnight to Lima and then on to Cusco on Sunday Morning. We’ll tour through some of the sites of the Urubamba Sacred Valley on our way to the where we’ll stay in Urubamba. You need to acclimate to the altitude so we don’t start the hike for a couple of days. The second day will be white water rafting and more of the Sacred Valley sites. Then we start the 4 day hike that ends at Machu Picchu. We’ll spend a final day in Cusco, the former capital of the Inca empire.
I’ve been climbing stairs in preparation for the last 8 months so I am looking forward to getting to the real thing. There certainly won’t be internet connections on the hike itself but I should be able to give updates from the hotels before and after as time allows.
