This picture. An oldie but a goodie. The Urubamba River in the heart of Aguas Calientes, Peru. So many memories spring to mind when I see Peru. And Aguas Calientes? Oh dear. Laughter. That’s what it brings to the forefront — pure laughter. Because it reminds me of a city that I took so many beautiful photos in, photos that I like to call “false advertising.” The damn town was terrible.

Cue laughter.

But at the same time it was the gateway to one of the most magnificent places I’ve ever seen in my entire life, Machu Picchu. If you’re not familiar with Machu Picchu, I encourage you to look it up. It’s often called the lost city of the Incas. And when I say it’s magnificent, I mean pure magic. Gives me goose bumps just thinking about it.

Oh, I do LOVE Peru. I will go back one day. The food, the people, the HIKING. The rolling hillsides and mountains and jungle. I. Can’t. Even.

You know what I love about these posts? They make me fall in love with my life, bit by bit. Every time I write one, I want to start gushing about how magical the world is, and how lucky I am to experience it this way. I get giddy with excitement for my next adventures. I just want to giggle and reminisce. This may be my best idea yet, folks. For reals.

I hope the end to your day is just as beautiful as mine is tonight.
