It was a wet and cloudy day when I first laid eyes on the aerial view of grand Machu Picchu. I had spent the previous hour scouring the grounds and running my fingers along the centuries old stones. I let my imagination run wild and tried to picture life back in the 15th century when Machu Picchu was thriving and full of life.
I felt like I could have spent a lifetime walking through the labyrinth of stone walls and inspiring architecture. It wasn’t until I reached the lookout that the clouds shyly parted, revealing the ancient city below. It was a truly humbling moment and one that I will never forget.
Machu Picchu is one sight that should be on everyone’s bucket list.
