The Valley of Urubamba
Nostalgic. That's the perfect word that sums up how my husband and I feel while browsing through pictures of Peru this afternoon. We could hardly believe that was 5 years ago. Our first 'real' nights on the freezing bus- in the middle of nowhere backpacking trip. Those times when you want to get out of the bus for a p** at 3AM and you know the bus driver couldn't because it's in the middle of a deserted land with no rock nor bush to hide behind from. And the only decision you have to make is, if you can hold it in till morning or just do it. An empty bottle with all the passengers sleeping. You might be asking me now, is this experience for real? I'll leave it to your imagination what happened after that. :)

Here, we hired a cab from Cuzco to Ollantaytambo for the Peru Rail with stops in Moray, Chinchero and other sights to see on the way. We parked at the side of the road to admire the view of Urubamba valley. We had lunch in this quaint town before continuing our journey. Great thing about cabs and daytime travel, we can easily request for toilet breaks whenever we need it.
