My favorite travel memory... now, that is a hard one! I would have to stay the entire 4-day trek from the city of Cusco to Machu Picchu. My two friends and I went with a tour company that led the way (on-foot) to the old Incan city. Throughout the trek, we did every adventurous sport – rafting, hiking, biking, and canopying. We also had the chance to meet locals and study how they grew their own coffee beans.
It was great to learn more about the native cultures in this area of Peru. I even learned some Quechuya words! After hiking two hours up the mountain to Machu Picchu, my friends and I crashed and took a nap on a little patch of grass next to some alpaca. We ended up sleeping for an hour – now, who can actually say they slept at the "Forbidden City?" I can!
