Story: My annual escape from the Thanksgiving holiday and the subsequently cold weather in NYC took me to the incredible country of Peru this year. Over 12 days, five cities, and a lot of bad Spanish, I was able to discover the vast beauty and natural wonders Peru has to offer. I wandered aimlessly through the never-ending rocky coastlines, mountainous jungles, and desert dunes, visiting the cities of Ollantaytambo, Aguas Calientes, Cusco, Ica, and Lima. I started in the surf of Miraflores, Lima and ended up in the Sacred Valley with a hike up Machu Picchu. Despite covering a vast amount of ground through this beautiful country I still feel as if I only got a glimpse of all there is to see.
