Lima | Cusco
While I was still in high school, I would go back to Perú every summer break to visit my family. After I started college, it became harder to travel (since after graduating, I had to start #adulting and pay for my own plane tickets... thanks mom). Then, wanting to explore other places became my priority and visiting Perú wasn't at the top of my list anymore (I know, shame on me). After 13 years, I finally went back. There was a lot that had changed, but all the familiarity rushed back the minute I set foot at Jorge Chavez (the airport in Lima).
I had never visited the magical Cusco. I was beyond happy to finally be able to see this Wonder with no filters. I don't think any picture you will ever see does this amazing city justice; it is truly breathtaking. The immensity of the ruins and mountains is beyond belief. The energy you feel while standing in front of the grand Machu Picchu is incomparable.
