Inca Trail, Peru

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Today Was a Good Day.”

IMG_3743Amongst many things that make me happy, being able to travel and indulging in an incredible adventure, while meeting extraordinary people is what makes me the happiest. To me every day is a good day, but one of my most favored memories that changed my life forever was my four day hike on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

On this hike, I’ve met a small group of people of whom I will remember for the rest of my life because of the memories and experiences I shared with them. Thanks to Alpaca Expeditions, their motto has become a constant reminder to live in the moment. “The journey is the destination,” a phrase that encouraged me to remember to enjoy the journey no matter where life takes me. It made me realize to enjoy the time leading up to the destination because once you reach it, the journey ends.
