I like to be spontaneous when I travel and don’t like booking things too far in advance, just in case something I hadn’t thought about comes up along the way. That is great for the freedom and flexibility it gives me, but it doesn’t work so well when I want to take part in an activity, like doing the classic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
If you really want to get to Machu Picchu but you're like me or you're just not too fussed about how to get there, you could check out some of the other options available, as I did.
My journey was more about nature and culture than doing a hard, full-on trek. You can find out more about it here.
