Well, I finally made it to Machu Picchu and was able to make one big check off my bucket list. My son took me and we absolutely loved it. We went via the Hiram Bingham train out of Cusco and it was one of the best experiences we have ever had. It is one of those places you just have to see. The photos are gorgeous, but they don't look real. lol I am so glad I was able to go before I got too old. I was somewhat short of breath on the steep climbing portions. I had to stop and catch my breath. If you are somewhat active, you will do fine. You do not have to be an avid hiker, just able to climb lots of steps and have good balance. The beauty of this place is really indescribable. It was the highlight of our South American adventure. If you get the chance, you should definitely go for it.
