No blisters and no sweaty clothes as we explored one of the best preserved ruins of the Inca civilization: Machu Picchu in Peru. Many people will tell you that the most exciting way to reach Machu Picchu is by trekking the famous hardcore Inca Trail. Well, we decided not to hike to Machu Picchu but to reach the sacred site, the easy way!
We’ll be the first to admit it: the main reason we visited Peru, South America, was to experience the world famous Machu Picchu ruins and visit some family during their around-the-world trip. But Peru revealed some hidden gems like Huacachina, a tiny oasis surrounded by giant waves of sand and full of surprises.
