Most recent trip/cultural activity

Favorite Trip Experience

Ever since I skied in Europe as a child, I’ve been fascinated and intimidated in equal measure by mountains. I never thought that climbing snow-peaked mountains would be something I could do, but living in Cusco opened new doors to me. Reaching the peak of Jhampa at 5,500 m.a.s.l. and seeing the sun rise over the Sacred Valley below me and the neighboring mountains still towering above me, has to be my highlight, for the extreme challenge and euphoric sense of achievement.

Next Trip
