Machu Picchu | Cuzco | Peru. 🏔 Trekking the 42kms over 4 days, up and down mountains to the Machu Picchu site was the most challenging thing I've ever (and will ever) experience (physically and mentally.) day 1 I considered quitting, day 2 I expected to faint (die) and fall back down the 6 hour climb (straight up to 4,500m above sea level,) day 3 I had a panic attack 5 minutes in and needed to be medicated, but by day 4 I looked back at every single thing I accomplished just by being there and felt pretty damn proud. I had immense support from people I'd only just met and I wouldn't have been able to do it without them. It was nothing short of an experience and I can fully appreciate why this venture is on so many bucket lists. What. A. Fucking. Time.
