Bucket List Spot #2
Located on top of the magnificent Andes mountains of Peru, lies the ancient Incan ruins of Machu Picchu. One of the reasons I am so excited to tell you about this amazing place is because it is somewhere I have always wanted to visit, and I finally get to this summer for my birthday! To say I am excited is an understatement. Machu Picchu is truly a wonder of this world. In fact, it was actually voted one of the new seven wonders of the world. An intricate creation of walls, ramps, stairways and buildings made from rock and stone, Machu Picchu was built without mortar or tools. The stones are cut so exact that Machu Picchu is truly spectacular. What makes it even more intriguing is that the origin remains a mystery. Built in the 15th century, some say it was the home of the Incan emperor, a religious site or possibly even the lost city of the Incans. In 1981 it was declared a Peruvian Historic Sanctuary. You can tour the ruins and travel to the top by bus, train or if you enjoy a good workout, you can walk for free. The central point of the ruins sits at 7,970 feet above sea level so the views have got to be out of this world. If Machu Picchu is not on your bucket list, add it now. I cannot wait to share my trip with you to this awe inspiring place!
