Our Honeymoon // Cusco and the Sacred Valley

peru / a thousand threads
For our honeymoon, we wanted to do something we’d never forget, and when we thought about it, we realized that some of our most amazing trips together have also been our biggest adventures.  So in the end, after considering a ton of different possibilities, we decided that we’d head to Peru, where we could not just relax, but also tackle a bucket list trek.

It’s not everyone’s idea of the perfect honeymoon… but for us, it couldn’t have been better.

Our trip to Peru was beautiful, emotional, surprising, and really really amazing in so many ways.  And while the biggest event was no doubt our unbelievable 4 day trek on the Inca Trail, Cusco and the Sacred Valley stole my heart in a way I didn’t know they would.

We stayed three nights in Urumbaba and one in Cusco and really, I could have stayed forever… the food, the people, those mountains… I didn’t think I’d find the kind of serenity I expected on the trail from the moment I settled in our first hotel but from the second I arrived I felt nothing but calm.

Our hotel in Urumbaba was seriously one of the nicest I’ve ever stayed in (not least because Peruvian hospitality is really like nothing I’ve ever experienced).  If you ever plan a trip to Machu Picchu, stay in Urumbaba and stay here.

… and swim in the pool ’cause it’s kind of unreal.

I have tons more pictures and stories to share — hopefully in manageable chunks — feel free to let me know when I start to border on the slide show, I’ll try to control myself.

Hope everyone is having a good start to their week!  And tell me, what big trips are on your bucket list?  Would you consider ticking one of them off on your honeymoon?
