“Unforgetable should probably be enough to describe the trip. That one word describes the country, the people I met, the friends I made, and the lifetime memories that I will take back home. When I was on the trip I took over 700 pictures with my camera because I was afraid that I would get back home and have forgotten about the whole thing, and maybe just even passed it off as a dream. But upon returning home I found that I had such an amazing adventure that I could describe the whole thing from my memory. Every sight, sound and taste comes back to me when I think about the journey into Peru. You guys do such an amazing job leading us it makes the camera almost obsolete. However, I must say it is nice to pull out a picture of the group with Machu Picchu in the background and show it to my friends and say, "yeah, I was there, it was pretty good I guess" as that grin creaps across my face. Hands down, or up depending on where you are in the world, one of the best experiences of my life.”
