Machu Picchu - Why it Should Be on Your Bucket List!
July 24 2015
Last year at this time I was planning my 4 week sojourn into South America. Bolivia was the main destination, but knowing I would be so close to one of the "Wonders of the World" I couldn't go all that way and not gaze upon the famous ruins of Machu Picchu.
I made the trip into Peru as more of an obligation versus spiritual pilgrimage or journey to a dream destination, but my visit to the centuries old Incan site turned out to be one of my most favorite travel days ever!
I invite you to jump over to my personal travel blog, One Girl's Adventures, to learn more about this incredible corner of our globe and my short experience there. The magic of Machu Picchu is still with me, and that is why it should definitely be on your list of travel "must-sees."
From my blog entry - "Machu Picchu is now just a memory, but what an extraordinary and unforgettable place it was. Ruben [our guide] had told us that Machu Picchu is a treasure that belongs to all of humanity, and I feel by experiencing it I get to keep a piece of that treasure with me always. This is why I travel"
