THE MOST DANGEROUS & DIFFICULT HIKE I’VE EVER DONE

I don’t want to sound dramatic, but this really was the most dangerous and difficult hike I’ve ever done. I have to say that I honestly didn’t know what to expect regarding the hike when we booked our trip to Machu Picchu in Peru. The hike to Machu Picchu and the difficult hike to Huayna [...]

UNIQUE PAXIS BACKPACK, WHY I MADE THE SWITCH

PAXIS BACKPACK I just purchased a Paxis backpack for my trip to Peru with my last stop being Machu Picchu.  I’ve never been a fan of backpacks for my travel because it’s difficult to grab things from it quickly.  My travel carry bag has always been a messenger type bag.  Then I saw an advertisement for [...]

CHORDELEG ECUADOR, EXCLUSIVE SILVER SHOPPING AT ITS BEST

Our half day trip to Chordeleg to do some silver jewelry shopping with our 2 out of town female friends was well worth it. Everyone left with some great buys. If you haven't heard of Chordeleg, it's a city that's a little over an hour outside of Cuenca ($2 bus ride) with a population [...]
