Machu Picchu- The Legend We Missed- Life on the Road Decisions, Peru
Machu Picchu is one of those legendary fairy tales you can’t miss. You walk up that mountain, passed the clouds and walk into a world long gone, yet so much alive in spirit. We had heard of Machu Picchu and listened to countless travelers speak of it’s magic and how they remain in awe of it’s very aura. While the kids and I stayed in Lima, Peru in Nomade Backpacker’s Hostel we sighed, and yes, we missed it. Let me show you something so cool about this living history lesson and tell you why we just missed out on it.
Stairs Go Up and Down
Yeah, you knew that. And so do opportunities, and life, and relationships, and our money, and our moods. So, Machu Picchu will have to wait for us. We can’t have it all. We can’t. We can literally travel for the next eighty years and we just won’t see it all, do it all. Now that we are living in the Philippines (and loving life here to no end), the kids and I have figured out that if you were to explore one Filipino island a day, it would take you over 20 years to see them all!
And so, stairs! Machu Picchu is unreal, as was our visit to Chan Chan, the world’s largest adobe village, also in Peru. We loved Peru, surfing and camping in Huanchaco, exploring her beauty and history, and living in the capital Lima, for two and a half months. And Machu Picchu, well, stairs! Really. Ups and downs, places you go and places you didn’t get to, and always more to see.
It’s definitely on our bucket list the next time we’re there. Definitely.
