Machu Picchu

I recently went on a trip to Cusco, Peru with my dad to hike the Classic Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu!
It was an absolutely incredible experience. We spent 3 nights and 4 days hiking the ancient Inca trail. The scenery was breathtaking, the people we met and trekked with awesome and the history you could feel beneath your feet was magical. I was the first person to the Sun Gate overlooking Machu Picchu the last morning and being able to spend about 10 minutes watching the sunrise over the Andes and onto the Lost City was something I will always remember (and be able to brag about) for the rest of my life.
