My dear Beard,
Many people travel to Peru just because of the magical Machu Picchu. I was one of them.
But since I had arrived the country 3 weeks ago, I haven’t left my footprint on that famous landmark yet. I’m trying to make it slowly and giving myself more time to do something else. And “something else” is taking a road trip from Lima to Cusco for 7 days, instead of flying for just 1 hour. I had to give up my flight that I booked before and lost my money without regret. So far this is the best decision I’ve made in Peru!
