There are some places in the world that offer relaxation, or education. Still others offer shopping and culinary experiences. Peru beckons me for adventure. While it’s true that you could spend your entire time in this country visiting museums and luxuriating in hotels, you would be doing yourself a great disservice if you did not take advantage of what rugged Peru has to offer.
During my most recent visit here, I was able to fit in a trek to Machu Picchu, a stay in the blissful hot springs of Aguas Calientes and a hike to the Sacred Valley. This required a large degree of physical effort, intestinal fortitude (quite literally) and acceptance of the force of nature. But, at the end of each exhausting day, I would gaze up at the mountains and the endless sky and revel in my experience. These are the moments that stay us forever.
