Peru Day 4: I Used to be....

Day 4 • Monday – September 24
Machu Picchu
A full day to explore Machu Picchu or simply relax! You may wake up early and hike to the Sun Gate or enjoy some early morning birding in the abundant gardens surrounding our hotel. All wildlife-related activities and your entrance fee to Machu Picchu are included, and your guide will be on-hand to help you make any needed arrangements. For a more relaxing day, treat yourself to the spa or visit the extensive orchid garden, currently considered the biggest in-habitat garden on the planet. The grounds of the Machu Picchu Pueblo are home to exquisite birds including 16 species of hummingbirds and the Andean cock-of-the-rock, the national bird of Peru.
Overnight Machu Picchu Pueblo. 


A bird, an airplane....maybe you can see how my itinerary relates to this page....

No, not really....

I did laugh when I came across it. I had enjoyed how the two photos looked kind of similar at the time and one was my little Gram and the other me. 

Anyhow, there is a lot of journaling in the little book you can see there that I won't bore you with. OK, so it's a bit private but going on about spunk and nerve and all that jazz.

WHICH I suppose relates to taking my first ever vacation by myself. Typically THE MAN and I would never dream of taking one apart, but this year morphed into that with him going to Vegas with his Dad and me headed to Peru with my parents....

Now we do have something amazing planned for next year and our anniversary...and parents are NOT INVITED. ;-)
