First of all, a big thanks to everyone who guest posted for me while I was in Peru last week! I loved showcasing these awesome bloggers. Secondly, I signed into my google reader for the first time in a week and found over 400 unread items! So I'm sorry if I haven't commented on your blogs in a while, and if it takes me a while to catch up! I'll do my best to catch up on everything I missed!
I got home late last night from the most amazing trip ever! I had my computer with me on this trip so I've been uploading and editing a bit throughout the week and got a chunk done on the long plane ride home last night. I just wanted to share a few of my favorites so far!
This is a view of the Sacred Valley in Cusco, Peru from the top of a hill. Far below you can see the Salineras, the Incan Salt Mines, that are still mined for salt today.
From Cusco we took an amazing 3 1/2 hour train ride through the Sacred Valley along the Incan Trail to get to Aguas Calientes, the small town that lies below Machu Picchu. This is one of our many incredible views from the train ride.
This is the small town of Aguas Calientes, wrapped around the Urubamba River.
From Aguas, we took a 30 minute shuttle bus ride that zig zagged up the side of the mountain, until we reached the amazing Machu Picchu!
My boyfriend grabbed this awesome shot of me showing how excited I was to be there!
