  • A trip to Cusco isn’t complete without visiting the Sacred Valley! The Sacred Valley isn’t just one site, it is actually a region outside Cusco where you’ll find many cool things to see, like this one!
::::::
Any guesses as to what this place was used for back in Inca times? If you guessed agricultural laboratory, you’d be 💯 correct! Although it’s not known for certain, the irrigation system and seeds found during excavation leads to this guess.
::::::
Honestly though, my first guess was an amphitheater or stadium of some sort 💁🏻‍♀️ whoops. Thanks @exploorperu for guiding me around these fascinating ruins!
::::::
Have you visited any ancient ruins? For me, I loved visiting the Mayan ruins in Mexico, the Sacred Valley in Peru, and the Acropolis in Athens! 🇵🇪🇵🇪🇵🇪USE THE CODE “KRYSTINE” for $40 USD OFF FOR 3 day MACHU PICCHU, SACRED VALLEY AND PALCOYO RAINBOW MOUNTAIN PRIVATE TOUR!

  • When I first saw a picture of Rainbow Mountain, I knew I HAD to visit it. It seemed like it was photoshopped! How does the earth paint a mountain in such vivid colors? The bright turquoise, red, orange, purple, and gold are the result of different layers of minerals such as sandstone and iron. Each color is formed by a different mineral!
::::::
This isn’t *the* famous Rainbow Mountain you see everywhere on Instagram (called Vinicunca). This was taken at Palcoyo, which has 3 different rainbow mountains in the region and is a much easier trek than Vinicunca (2 hours vs 6 hours). The colors on both mountains are equally as vibrant! Palcoyo has much less tourism due to it being relatively new as an attraction, so you’ll have the entire place to yourself!

All credit goes to @exploorperu for introducing me to this hidden gem of Peru. I’m sure it won’t be a hidden gem for long! 🇵🇪 USE THE CODE “KRYSTINE” for $40 USD OFF FOR 3 day MACHU PICCHU, SACRED VALLEY AND PALCOYO RAINBOW MOUNTAIN PRIVATE TOUR!

✨ Here’s a fun “Would you rather”: do a 6 hour trek or 2 hour horse ride to get to the top of a mountain? I love trekking but I think I would take the horse ride so I can have more time to take photos at the top! What about you?

  • Exploring and learning about the Inca culture was so fascinating! I don’t consider myself a history buff, but learning about Incas, their empire, their belief in the divinity of the earth, and visiting their sacred sites where you can see intricate stonework that has withstood the test of time was SO cool.
::::::
✨Travel tip: when you visit Cusco, hire a guide. They will provide you so much interesting information, ancient stories, and history that you won’t be able to get if you just went on your own. I’m usually not one for hiring a tour guide, but in Cusco, I am so glad I had someone to explain the significance of everything to me!

  • @emmett_sparling - Behind The famous Rainbow Mountain, lies Red Valley. You can actually see it from the peak of Rainbow Mountain, however getting there is a different story.

  • ¡Sé siempre tú mismo!

Hay muchos quienes quieren aparentar lo que no son: mostrar una versión equivocada de nosotros mismos solo para atraer, para complacer o agradar. Aparentar no significa felicidad, sino inseguridad.  Cada persona es única y tiene que aceptarse tal y como es. Quien nos quiera de verdad nos amará tal y como somos, con nuestra auténtica esencia, con nuestras aristas, virtudes y maravillosa personalidad. ****************************************************** Be always yourself!

There are many people who pretend to be someone they are not: show a wrong version of ourselves just to attract and  gratify others. This is not happiness, but insecurity.

Each person is unique and we have to accept ourselves the way we are. Whoever loves us will truly love us as we are, with our authentic essence, with our edges, virtues and wonderful personality.

  • Desde tiempos remotos, en el antiguo Perú, el hombre de los Andes aprendió a vivir en completa armonía con su entorno y a venerar a la Pachamama (madre tierra), siendo uno de los rituales mas significativos y representativos de nuestra cultura, las ceremonias de agradecimiento a esta madre que nos cuida y nos provee todo lo que necesitamos para vivir. Es así, como el equipo de @peruatravel1983  tiene un especial compromiso en compartir y difundir este hermoso acto de amor hacia la naturaleza con visitantes de todas partes del mundo. Nos vemos en la ruta!!!

  • @chellestravels -  Silent morning in the desert with the best company 🐶💛
••••
This is also in Peru. In the last photo I was in the Andes at 4,500m and here just one week earlier climbing sand dunes and visiting a desert oasis 🌴 What a beautiful and crazy world. 🌎

Also this pup followed at at 4:30am and spent the next 5-6 hours with us roaming the desert until the sand became too hot. Street doggos all over the world breaking my heart 😍
