When I lived in Chile I convinced my parents to take a once in a lifetime trip to Machu Picchu and bring along me ofcourse. Reluctantly they agreed (JK they were ecstatic), and we got to planning. It was May 2015 when I left Santiago to travel up to Lima.. I went earlier than the crew and worked at Hostal Dragonfly in Lima helping out with their social media and marketing for free accommodation and breakfast.
When my family and the Fairleighs arrived we all stayed together in Lima, then the boys and I were off to Cusco to get acclimated to the elevation before our epic hike to Machu Picchu.
And the rest is history..
