Peru Part 2: In and Around Cuzco

I traveled to Peru with my daughter earlier this summer. Last week, I shared some photos of our time in Lima. Today I’d like to show/tell you about what it was like in and around the city of Cuzco.

The airplane ride from Lima to Cuzco took just over an hour and it was stunning. It was a very clear day and there were gorgeous mountain views the whole ride.

We were super excited about getting to Cuzco because so many people had told us we would LOVE it. They were absolutely right: we did!

Cuzco is a small city flanked by mountains. It was the capital of the Incan Empire and is positively overflowing with history, tradition, and charm. It’s truly a spectacular place.
