Hiking Peru’s famous Inca Trail is without a doubt the toughest adventure I’ve ever been on. Four tiring days of waking up before sunrise, climbing mountain peaks in the blaring sunshine and at high altitude, all the while having my lovely new “friend” Altitude Sickness along for the ride, made for an exhausting but incredible journey.
For me, someone who very rarely (okay pretty much never) exercises and has never done more than a day’s hiking in her life, the trail was a huge accomplishment. The only way I got through it was with sheer determination and endurance, and the encouragement of my husband.
And I’m so glad I did, as what an adventure it was!
I will tell you all more about my adventure on the Inca Trail soon – I promise! I’m finding it just as hard to write about as I found the actual hike! 😉
