9 Tips for Your Trip to Machu Picchu

I went to Peru’s Machu Picchu and Sacred Valley with a dear friend of mine to celebrate the big 4-0. To mark this milestone birthday, I had a certain scenario in mind. After an absolutely punishing year that included a health scare, job loss, a move, the aftermath of a nasty breakup and a family tragedy, I imagined myself standing powerfully on top of Machu Picchu, where I’d throw my hands up in the air and shout: “Hey world, look at ME! I am a goddess! A superheroine! A doer of great things!” ...

Questions: the new superpower

Alexa, Siri, Google, and all programs that answer questions, have mechanisms that determine the answers. If you’re like me, you largely assume they are accurate, without us knowing the reference material or checking further. We actually do this in our daily lives – pose questions to friends, colleagues, and clients, about stuff we’re curious about, and receive responses we don’t check for accuracy or congruence. Have you ever wondered what a question actually is? Conventionally, questions are po...

A Luxury Train Journey Experience to Machu Picchu

One of the main reasons the citadel of Machu Picchu was never found by the Spanish conquistadors is its isolation. On a mountaintop above a raging river, the way there from Cusco becomes a narrow valley not wide enough for a road. It was hard enough just laying down train tracks to reach this spot, so it's still true that the only way to get there is by walking in (as on the Inca Trail like they did 500 years ago) or by rail. This truly makes getting there half the fun, especially if you use t...

New Machu Picchu regulations

The state-owned Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu is an incredibly popular tourist destination, and all those crowds could have a major impact on the historic site if not regulated properly.

How to Be Less of a Traveling Asshole in 2019
