I’m climbing Machu Picchu. Send help.
About 7 months ago the hubby and I booked a dream getaway to Peru with some of our closest friends. “Sure we can hike and camp for 4 days,” we said to eachother.
“Of course we’ll train by hiking mountains.”
But here I stand about 10 days out from departure and no mountains have been climed. No seas have been swam/swum (jeez, what’s past tense of swim?) And I just found out LAST NIGHT that there will be no porter to carry my pack. The porter, in fact, is me.
Do you think it would be inappropriate to pull a rolling suitcase up Machu Picchu? Will I go to a Peruvian jail for rigging up a llama to carry my pack? These are all things that are going through my head right now.
You may be asking yourself, “Self? What has Julie been doing with her time while she should have been training?”
Well everyone, Julie (me) has been scoping out goods I’ll find in Peru which is how I became obsessed with these bags made out of Peruvian blankets from rebyc.
Who needs to train when you have a new bag?
Me I guess. Note to self: start training.
