part one: peru

i, laura, just got back from an amazing vacation in south america. i am so excited to share my travels from peru, argentina, and chile! it was easily the best trip i have been on. we started in cuzco, then visited the sacred valley and ollantaytambo before making our way to machu picchu. i was not expecting to love peru as much as i did. the food, people, and scenery were unlike no other.

here’s my favorite pictures:

the ruins are so well hidden in the mountains. among the greenery, the clouds, the terraces used for farming, and the amazing remains of the inca city– there is no shortage of beauty. it was breath taking and everything i thought it was going to be and more.

and just like that, the ruins disappeared in the clouds…

i cannot get over the fact that i was able to visit machu picchu. i highly recommend it and would be more than happy to give recommendations on where to eat and stay if anyone is planning a trip to peru!

so excited to share part 2 and 3 of my travels– stay tuned!
