My dream vacation involves ticking an item off my bucket list: trekking the Inca Trail to the breathtaking landmark of Machu Picchu in Peru. Immersing myself in the rich history and culture of the ancient Incas while navigating the challenging off-the-beaten-path trek through the Andes mountains would be an unforgettable experience. Beyond the iconic landmark, I’m eager to explore the local villages and sample the unique Andean cuisine, savoring flavors unlike anything I’ve tried before.
