Muchas pictures of Machu Picchu – an online book/photo-travelogue

Hola, a todos!

A couple of years ago a bunch of like-minded adventure seekers and I decided to make the long trip to Peru in South America to the long-abandoned City of the Incas – Machu Picchu. We took plenty of photos, and I took detailed notes of our experiences along the way.

The result (finally!) is a book that’s to be published – currently online here in pdf format – chock full of hi-res pics from our travels accompanied by my commentary.

In all it was an unforgettable trip. And I don’t mean just our ultimate destination, but the whole journey getting there too, which is not just a matter of hopping on a plane and hopping back off it near your destination. But that’s what made the whole experience so memorable.

Examples: the rickety train that leads up to the town nearest Machu Picchu; the quaint and contrasting en-route town of Cusco and its Quechua aborigines; and the ‘tambo’ rest-stops along the Urubamba River valley providing much-needed refreshments and time-outs from our trekking.

In all, an exceptional expedition; and Machu Picchu, it won’t surprise you, easily made it into the upper echelons of my Top-100 Must-See Places of the World [PDF, 0.5MB].

And should anyone reading this ever plan on visiting the Incas’ City in the Clouds, what better introduction thereto could there be than this here book we’ve prepared? So read on, amigos!

We loved visiting Machu Picchu and agree with you that the entire trip is part of the journey experience. We just checked out your book online and really enjoyed it. We climbed Huayna Picchu and were impressed to see you made it as well! The view is just amazing, isn’t it? :)

A quick guide to Utah arches.

Why this national park is called the Arches is a rhetorical question. But if you haven’t been following this mini-on-the-road series from Utah, then read this. Yes, you want huge natural rock arches – you need to come here. There’s just so much awesome archness here. Wikipedia says there are as many as 2000 here, […]

U tire of Utah’s canyons? Not possible!

The red rocks of Utah – a simply captivating sight; from the outside, that is, which is what we checked out yesterday. Today it was time we had a look at all this from the inside. So off we headed to the Arches National Park‘s Fiery Furnace rocky massif. This is what we saw…

The Utah Saints: Crimson columns and massive mushrooms.

Since the previous day my brain had been variously boggling and boiling. This was eased a little by steam being emitted from said boggling and boiling brain out via my camera, but that alleviation process then went too far, leading poor brain into a state of half dehydration. The diagnosis sounds like this: I’ve (finally) […]

A practical guide to making up a sensation.

There are many ways to make up something sensationalist in the media. One of the practical ways is to speculate and create conspiracy theories. Unfortunately, there’s a demand for such stories and they have a very good chance of making a splash. So how can a global company with Russian roots play a part in […]

Bonny Bonneville. Salty Utah.

Still in the US toing and froing between cities, we decided to make a quick stop in a town I’d never heard of: Wendover, Utah State. The town houses the nearest airport to the famous Bonneville Salt Flats. A saliently saline splendid spot!

Massachusetts snow woe, and a US-AV decade of champions.

I’ve been in the USA countless times. Usually it’s just for short stays with a few different places to visit, but there’s normally plenty of interesting tales to tell afterwards. Not this time! This time it was business, business, and again business. In this post, alas, there’ll be nothing too riveting for you, dear reader […]
