I realize that friends and family are expecting a detailed summary of my visit to Cuzco, Machu Picchu, hiking and camping on the Inca Trail for four days, visiting the Sacred Valley, and all about Aguas Calientes. Here is my response to this expectation!

Travelers get sick from food sometimes. This happened to me (and a very serious case, no less), so I had to take a rush flight home to Arequipa.

Well…’rush’ flight may not be the correct term. The flight delay was three days. Yep, three. So, you’ll be getting a post about my accidental vacation time in surprise Cuzco locations, Juliaca, and Lima!

As a little teaser, not all my time was spent waiting in lines– there was sightseeing and time for new friendships, too! The night before the trip, I prayed that this trip would allow me to grow in faith, because the Inca Trail would provide so much unknown and honestly, I was full of doubt about the whole thing, so my consolation was that if I could grow in faith through challenges, it would be worth the time.

The good news is that I’m a stronger person by internationally  traveling solo (on a very tight schedule in cities I’ve never been to, no less!) for the first time in my life, and I did grow in faith, guys! So goals have been reached, which is what matters in the end. I’ll dedicate a post to a few different parts of the trip very soon.

For now, here’s my trip summary via photos of time spent in-transit:

I’ll be posting something for each day of the trip, including traveling recommendations, so do stay tuned for more. As always, thank you for reading and have a fabulous day!
