Seeing Machu Picchu (Machu Picchu)for the very first time was quite possibly the most awe-inspiring moment of my life. There is incredible beauty everywhere but very few places create this “holy shit I’m actually here” internal dialogue. It’s a magnificent place.

My Machu Picchu experience was heightened because I was fortunate enough to appreciate it with two other travelers I met on the train, one from Canada and the other from France. We woke up before dawn to hike up and arrived around 6:30am.
