Now that we got my little admission/rationalization of 'cheating' out of the way....check out my hubby and I on our awesome trip to Peru! We spent a week in Cusco and hiked to Machu Picchu then headed to the Coast for some surf, sun and relaxation....or as I like to call it...a week in heaven. What a great way to celebrate 5 years of marriage!!
|At the market in Cusco City|
|and TONS of stairs|
|Viva el Peru!|
|Aguas Caliente- the starting point for our hike to Machu Picchu|
|We had some 'typical food' to fuel our hike for the next day|
|Ya...we also climbed that giant mountain in the background....no big deal|
|We made it to the top....group photo time!|
|Post-hike we obviously had to put on our alpaca sweaters and have a few celebratory drinks|
Next stop was Lake Titicaca
|One of the floating islands on Lake Titicaca|
|Drinking coconut milk from straight from a coconut and taking a photo of it...we are such tourists in this photo!|
|So luxurious to have read two entire books in one week....alot of time was spent in this hammock reading. |
Oh how I long to be back in relaxation mode......
|We splurged and got a 3 hour couples massage at a fancy resort.....it was such a treat!|
|On our second-to-last day of the trip and post-massage.....don't we look happy and relaxed!?!|
Our two weeks were filled with new experiences (Ty leaving North America for the first time ever...YAY!), exciting challenges (lost luggage, language barriers and altitude sickness....oh my!) and adventures (climbing Machu Picchu with an awesome group of people, enjoying Peruvian delicacies like guinea pig and surfing the beautiful beaches of Mancora), but overall, it was a great reminder of what life....and this project for that matter .... are all about.
We only have one life to live, but you really can't go wrong if you are spending time with the people you love....doing the things you love....and living a life you love!♥Lindsay
