Video: hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu

A full, detailed blog post with photos and stories to come soon! (followed by Peruvian graffiti & street art photos, of course).

In the meantime, I made this video compilation of my hike through the Peruvian jungle along the ancient Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. I can’t believe this was just a few days ago. The hike took four days, and included all-terrain downhill biking, 82 kilometres of hiking through the Andes, hot springs, zip lining, climbing the mountain up to Machu Picchu, and also the bigger mountain Huayna Picchu which overlooks the Machu ruins.

I specifically selected the music for this video because it felt like it was my own Motorcycle Diaries experience. Even though the trip was only a week in total, it was probably the best travelling journey of my life (and you all know, I’ve done some massive backpacking extravaganza’s in my time).

Oh and Justin Bieber makes a cameo at the end of the video. I shit you not.

Fanks to Karikuy Tours (hi Julio!) for inviting me to take this journey (I won this contest).

Enjoy the vid! Comments encouraged!
