TOP Destinations: Cuzco & Sacred Valley

September 08, 2014  •  Leave a Comment


this time we travel to South America to discover the great Inca empire.

We start right on the Inca heartland in its mountainous capital Cuzco built by the ancient Incas in the shape of a puma. We continue further afield into the Sacred Valley witnessing traditional life at high altitude, lively markets, surprising salt mines and truly unique ruins like those in Moray with its remarkable concentric circles. Here, it is believed the Incas developed their crop laboratories, experiencing the varying temperatures and altitudes of the different terraces.

The high peaks of the Andes mountains always observe us from above in our journey throughout the valley, hiding away the most expected moment. The historic railroad or the mythical Inca Trail by the Urubamba river get us closer and closer. When our eyes capture the first rays of light warming Machu Picchu all we can feel is an overwhelming sense of complete wonder. No words are sufficient to explain Machu Picchu, only experiencing it yourself. 

Discover all this and much more in my new album at

Next week our journey continues throughout the Andes, ride along!

See you!
