Trip of a Lifetime Part 6 – Peru

Gabby and I took the train to Machu Pichu to meet up with the hikers and see the ruins.

Our ride took us through the sacred valley, the beautiful Andes on either side of us.  Gabby fell asleep, I watched the mountains go by.  They were so awesome, I had tears in my eyes.

Our train stopped in Aguas Calientes, where there are some hot springs.

From there we boarded a bus that took us up a windy, scary one lane road to Machu Pichu. We met up with our hikers!

Our hiking guide gave us a tour and taught us about the ruins and the civilization that once lived there.  We kind wished he’d shut up so that we could enjoy the experience with out BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.

Really though he was an excellent teacher and guide for the hikers.

    How wonderful! I was zooming in on your pictures, admiring the architecture. Meticulous! And they really knew how to build things thousands of years ago, didn’t they! Hopefully you have a part 7? Love your pictures and reading about your adventure!!
