I need to figure out if sleeplessness is a symptom of altitude sickness. I slept for a good 3-4 hours and I wasn’t coughing as much but I still kept waking up every few hours for some reason. I woke up at 3 am, 3:30 am, and 4 am. At that point I just decided […]
We tried to take so many alpaca selfies and failed so many times… here are the hilarious results:
So last night was rough. It was as 0 degrees Celsius and we were freezing. We went to bed at 8:30 pm but my incessant coughing kept us up until 1 am. It was a painful combination of coughing so hard I couldn’t breathe and also causing more pain/straining my already pained/strained back and of […]
Holy fucking shitballs we are sore! Getting out of our respective beds this morning was a chore and even the scalding hot shower didn’t help loosen some very tight muscles and fix our sore necks or backs.

Before we do that–our breakfast view: Best travel agent ever! Seriously. Amazing. And we got to stay in Machu Picchu Pueblo so no […]

Breakfast in paradise: seriously, I have no idea how we lucked into this place but Jesus it’s fucking amazing! Another selfie with our view: After breakfast we got a ride to the train and experienced the most amazing train ride ever! Seriously, it was the cleanest train station and most luxurious train ride I have […]
Something that is super fantastic about all of the historic sites that we have visited the last few days is that all of them seem to have live Peruvian flautists playing both what I assume is Peruvian music and a mixture of some American pop songs. Peruvian flute music is soothing and calming and lovely […]
