Dream Destination | MACHU PICCHU

It seems on purpose, but it's really not! 
After Europe, Asia and Africa, we go to South America. I know when it comes to travel, Brazil is the most famous country in South America, but this week we go to Peru. It was on the 7th day, of the 7th month, of the year 2007, when I found this modern world wonder, one of the seven wonders announced on our glorious (sorry the provocation) Estádio da Luz, and it went straight to my bucket list. Yes, we are talking about the “old mountain”, the “lost city of Incas” – Machu Picchu, the well preserved pre-columbian city, located on the top of a mountain with 7874ft high. It could be any other, but this was the one who caught my eye when I was 12 years old, sat in my kitchen, seeing one of the most beautiful ceremonies ever made in Portugal, with Jennifer Lopez singing.

Tips for who wants to go to Machu Picchu:
- Buy the ticket before you travel. There is a daily limit of visitors, that's why you need to make sure you have your ticket before you travel.

- Go between June and July. Machu Picchu is located in an area where it rains a lot in the summer, so the months between November and March are not good.

- Choose the Machu Picchu + Huayna Picchu tour. There are three types of tours: Machu Picchu, Machu Picchu + Huayna Picchu, and Machu Picchu + Museum, but is in the Huayna Picchu mountain that you have the best view of the city. However it is a very steep climb and there are only 2 daily tours, that's why it's hard to get a ticket. Once again, buy it earlier.

For now I'll be there in my dreams! Who wants to meet me there? Tell us everything!
