Hi everyone! Today I’m wrapping up my Peru Photo Diary series with part three. This may be my favorite installment in the whole series because these photos were taken in Cusco and Machu Picchu!
Cusco is a beautiful town in the Andes where many people stay before continuing on to Machu Picchu. It’s a great place to acclimate to the higher elevation and is so full of incredible history. We only spent one night there, but I loved wandering the streets and watching the sunset.
Of course, the highlight of my whole Peru trip was seeing Machu Picchu. It took a plane, a train, a bus, and a hike to make it there, but it was so worth it. Machu Picchu is just indescribable to see in person, and I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to experience it for myself. It’s incredible to think about the work that went into creating the city and what it must have been like in its prime. And, of course, it was so cool to see the llamas that wander through the ruins! I would love to return and backpack to the city via the Inca Trail.
It’s been so fun for me to reflect on my Peru trip and revisit the memories through this series. I hope you’ve enjoyed my photos and if you’ve ever thought about visiting Peru, I highly encourage you to make it happen!
