I had put off fulfilling my dream to see Machu Picchu for far too many years, because I just didn't think that I could travel there as an independent female solo traveler. Last year while I was researching for my first South America Travel Adventure to Argentina, I stumbled upon a cool blog (My Travels: Peru) from an independent female solo traveler named Yvonne, in the Fodor's Community Forum. Reading her blog about her experiences gave me the confidence to finally take this trip and I couldn't be more thrilled.
I have booked all of my lodgings, purchased my airline tickets and I am currently putting together a brief itinerary of my "must see" list. And at the top of that list is, of course, the very majestic Machu Picchu!
I've downloaded several e-books in preparation for my trip and although my trip is 5 months away I'm beginning to get that tingly, excited feeling. You know what I mean, it's that sensation you get when you know that your dream is about to come true.
