Today we really got to see Peru and I think it’s the most beautiful country I have ever been to, or maybe tied with Brazil! It’s just so different. We had been looking forward to seeing Machu Picchu because Dad did the Inca Trail charity trek about 6 years ago and we wanted to see… Continue reading Machu Picchu

It also means we get to go through 7 states; California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado (to a little… Continue reading 2 Days on a Train
