Peru beyond Machu Picchu!“It took my breath away. What could this place be? Why had no one given us any idea of it? “
– Hiram Bingham, Lost City of the Incas.
These were the words of American archaeologist Hiram who discovered the existence of the great Inca Empire. The secret which was only known to some locals in the said region opened up to the word, was recognized as a wonder of the world and most importantly became a part of the bucket list of places of travel, for millions. It was never a part of my bucket list, but the moment Rony (my husband) proposed South America as a travel destination I was sure we have to visit it.
