Another year flew by. It feels like not too long ago I was writing the 2016’s A Year in Review blog post. Time seems to go by faster as I get older, which scares me. Does this mean that in a blink of an eye I’ll be 35 years old, married with two kids? Oh, my. On my first three years, I was unstoppable. As soon as one trip ended, I had another adventure booked to start in less than three weeks. But early this year I realized that the world is not going anywhere and neither do I. If I keep traveling at this pace, I’ll travel the entire world by the age of 45. Does this mean that at such young age I would stop traveling because I already saw it all? Hell no.    Secondly, I am four years older than when I started my adventure around the world. Things have changed – I’ve changed. At 21, I could sleep in a hammock in the outdoors  of a hostel in Mexico with …

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. Everything is 3X more expensive! The Sacred Valley of the Incas is the second most visited attraction in Cusco after Machu Picchu! « ‹ 1 of 14 › » The next stop is Ollantaytambo town. The main attraction here is the archeological site which hang high on the valley walls overlooking the town. Ollantaytambo is the gateway to Machu Picchu town (Aguas Calientes).
