is an award winning eco-hotel set amidst rainforest gardens filled with flowers
and birds. Delightful.
So excited for this part of the journey!!!!!
Hair-raising bus ride on windy road with numerous hair-pin
bends up to the ruins. After that it was a climb up of only 400 metres but it

Another of the must see things in the world - Machu Picchu. Did it exceed my expectations? Hell yes. To get there I took a two hour collectivo ride from Cusco to a little village in the Sacred Valley called Ollantaytambo. From here I took the train to Aguas Calientes. The weather was perfect. Warmer than Cusco. I had forgotten what ...
