Pisac & Sacred Valley: Photo Diary

The first stop is Pisac ruins overlooking the valley. It takes approx. 1 hour to explore this magnificent site. The views are unbelievable! It’s a great place to meditate.   Visiting Pisac artisan market is a must! Specially if you want to buy souvenirs in this trip. Here you can find the same items but at a very reduced price in comparison to other markets around Peru. Besides, they offer a great variety of artisan artifacts.       Bargain for some Andean goodies at the traditional artisan market of Pisac. By all means, avoid buying anything in Machu Picchu town.

Gruyeres: Cheese, Fondue & Chocolate!

On our way to Gruyeres, we stopped at Cailler’s Chocolate Factory for a quick tour and chocolate tasting experience. Cailler is my ultimate favorite chocolate brand, so naturally I was really excited to go try all the different kinds of chocolate samples they have.   Prior to this day, I never knew the history of Chocolate. A fascinating story worth knowing. I learned so many facts about chocolate. Such as: Did you know that people called chocolate the drink of the devil because it was so good and addicted that they actually thought the devil sent this to tempt humans to become evil.   Crazy right? Oh well.   The most interesting part for me was the cacao varieties they exist around the world. They are so many kinds of cacaos. We got to try different cacao bens from all over the world! Many of them are sweet, others not so much. Load More… Finally, they walk you thru the “right” way to taste the quality of a chocolate bar. Factors like: smell, taste, texture …

I remember back in 2007, we visited all major cities. I knew that I’d been to Geneva multiple times before, yet upon my arrival Geneva was a complete stranger. This made me happy because: 1. It’s like exploring a new city.  2. Because this time I could get to know the city with my friends. Jackie and Kristine are excellent travel buddies. Every day was another anecdote to laugh at or one of those “happenings” while traveling that the only thing to be said is : “I can’t believe the bus left us!” and laugh out loud.  This are the kind of travel buddies I look for when planning a trip.
