Through Their Eyes - Peru Part II

Continuing with our adventures in Peru... Here comes the best part... (see Part I here)

Taking a drive in the Sacred Valley


Getting lost in the beautiful streets of Ollantaytambo

Of course, more kick butt ruins - Ollantaytambo




Hanging out in Aguas Calientes or Machu Pichu pueblo (home base for the Sanctuary of Machu picchu), soaking in thermal water, getting lost in the little streets



Hiking Machu Picchu mountain... The views from the top were incredible.



Taking in one of the New Seven Wonders of the World - Machu Picchu. Simply stunning - Best of all... Stay until the park closes so you can have the sanctuary all to yourself.




Picnicking with this view... Not too shabby...

Taking breaks with the view of the mountains... I could spend a whole other day

Other hikes not to be missed in Machu Picchu... The Inca Bridge and the Sun Gate. Both provide gorgeous vistas


The food... Friends, we did not, could not, hold back... It was so delicious, best when purchased at the markets... Sampling everything possible was the name of the game here... We had to try it all.



Let me not forget our super awesome stays in Ollantaytambo and Cusco found via Airbnb (of course) look at the view from the terrace of our apartment in Cusco. Cannot recommend them enough!!!
Super cool to meet and hangout with the locals. Lunch from Ms Sonia in Ollantaytambo was fantastic!!!



That it for Peru! We will miss you and can't wait to go back. Hopefully soon.
