Peru - My planned travel itinerary!

Peru – My planned travel itinerary!

Peru means Inca trail for me. I had to do the Inca trail and see one of the wonders of the World – Machu Picchu. When Akshata suggested me the travel to South America, the first and the only thing that came to my mind was the Inca trail.

Peru is a country in the western South America continent. It is a home to a section of Amazon rainforest and as said earlier home to the ancient Incan city – Machu Picchu.

The purpose of this post is to detail out my planned itinerary in Peru and also to provide a complete breakdown of my expenses.

  1. OH MY GOODNESS! This is so inspiring. I, myself am also a female solo traveler but I have never taken on an itinerary this intense before. My travels have so far only taken me through a couple countries in south america, through Europe as well as Morocco. This post definitely is motivating me to take more risks!
    I recently opened my own blog, once solely a place for book reviews, to also include my experiences and tips for travels. If you are also interested in following my adventures I’ll leave the link here. Anyways happy 2018 travels! 🙂

I would love to hear your thoughts, please drop a comment!
