Greetings from somewhere over the Atlantic. I write this post as I am on the plane from Toronto to Lima, Peru. My best friend, and travel partner is currently sleeping beside me, but for those of you who know me, you know that I do not sleep on flights! With that being said I am keeping myself occupied listening to my iPod and will likely watch a movie soon. I was thinking to myself how fortunate we are to be able to travel to South and Central America and learn more about the people and culture, and to learn more about ourselves as young women taking on the world! Hard work pays off - and I feel as though this time of travel is well deserved for both Alex and I - although I do miss work already as pathetic as that sounds. Working in nursing for the past 4 years I have met some truly inspirational people who have taught me to live my dreams and appreciate each day. I love nursing - and the possibilities with my chosen profession are endless. Not to mention traveling and nursing go great together so in the years to come I will be able to do the two things I love the most - which makes me a real happy girl! :)
More information about our current travels...
We will arrive Lima at 7 am, then get on our next flight which will take us to Cuzco, Peru. We will be spending the next 3 days in Cuzco- during this time we will be exploring the city and then going to Machu Picchu on Monday August 5th (I'm SO excited)! we opted out of the 4 day hike and instead we will be taking the train to Machu Picchu. This part of our journey we are joining a tour with gadventures. The duration of our traveling we are doing independently and spent many hours planning what places we want to see, what activities we want to do, and how we can best spend our time. We are blessed to have the chance to take this journey and I'm glad we have put our plans into action.
Ps someone make sure they read this to g&p!
I love and miss you all!
