Cusco – Gateway to Machu Picchu

June 29, 2013


Plaza de Armas, Cusco

One of my favourite stops in Peru was the beautiful town of Cusco, a stop off for most backpackers travelling Peru as it is the gateway to Machu Picchu. It’s also probably where we felt most like backpackers/ travellers than anywhere else so far as you see and meet so many here, all with one […]
