100 Happy Days: Machu Picchu

CUSCO, PERU – Checking off my traveler’s bucket list: Visiting the ancient Inca site of Machu Picchu.

It’s a challenging trip to do it without a tour company. But it’s doable. We had complete freedom over where we went and how long we lingered over the ruins.

Machu Picchu also left us breathless. Climbing stone stairs gave us one heck of a cardio workout. At 7,900 feet, the site is lower than Cusco. That means it was easier for us to breathe at Machu Picchu.

One of my favorite selfies from Peru.

CUSCO, PERU – Plaza de Armas at night. It looks like a summer solstice fiesta with free concerts and crowds.

Also loved the shine off this zodiac art collection inside Catedral de Lima.
