I started preparation rather late for my holiday to Peru by walking up and down Gas Hill in Norwich three times. Living in East Anglia is hardly the best preparation for a trip involving lots of steep hills!
I have wanted to visit Machu Picchu since I studied the civilisations of the Incas and Aztecs for my A-Level History. At that stage it wasn't so popular or well known.
My son Martin and I are travelling with Llama Travel and doing two main things: canoeing in the Amazon and walking the Inca Trail to MC.
