Ailsa over at Where’s my Backpack did it again this week with a tricky travel theme: Secret Places. Of course there was one place that came immediately into my mind: The infamous lost city of Machu Picchu which was hidden for well over 600 years and has an amazing history of being a secret, magical place.
Back in 2001, my dad and I hiked the strenuous Inca Trail which took a little over three days trekking some of the same roads the Inca’s did to this magical, secret place. Getting there was have the fun and excitement and when we finally saw it, at a little past dawn, and were blown away in all her splendor. To imagine such a place being a hidden secret for so many years just amazes me beyond belief.
