Dear Inca Trail,

A love letter to the Inca TrailI will never forget the moment I first laid my eyes on you. Or how you took my breath away, both figuratively and literally, with your countless yet beautiful ancient steps. It was a true case of love at first sight.

After hours of walking along the trail taking in your majestic mountain scenery and climbing through your lush cloud forest, your charm and splendor continued to grow. What a privilege it was to walk along your paths – dangerous and inviting at the same time.

Inca Trail, you make it easy to transplant myself to 500 years ago when the Incans were forging their path, and yet it is hard to fathom how those skilled ancient peoples created you without the technology of today. Though we may never truly understand you, it is clear that you were devised for some greater purpose.

Journeying along your path has deeply changed me and brought me a whole new perspective on beauty, life, love, and achievement. I am forever indebted to you.
Love always,

Your fervent wanderer
