Overnighted in a lovely hotel in the Sacred Valley. It is no
wonder the Incas named it this. So green. So peaceful. Surrounded by high
mountains. Short bus ride to the vistadome train for our ride to Machu Picchu –
1 ½ hrs through the rainforest of the Sacred Valley. We could only take a small
5kg max bag with us for our 2 night stay due to no storage on the ...

That combined with the large tour groups (oh how we dislike tour groups) led us to our initial conclusion. At least we had the alpacas/lamas wandering around to keep us ...
... to see Machu Picchu! Kate and I wandered around town a little more after dinner. We bought some ice cream (Kate had dulce de leche and I went for a cappuccino and chocolate one - yum) and then literally hit the sack (the bed wasn't the world's comfiest but it certainly beat tent sleeping!)
Tomorrow was the big day and I began daydreaming and eventually sleep-dreaming about the mountains, the clouds and the ruins that lay just a few hundred metres above my ...
