Peru tourism are currently running a campaign to encourage people to visit, including the establishment of the Marca Peru brand, meaning Made in Peru.
We've been asked to share the video below with you and encourage you to check it out. Please note that this is a sponsored post.
Peru is not a country I know much about, although of course I'm familiar with Machu Picchu (aka the Lost city of the Incas), which seems to be extremely high on most people's bucket lists! I also follow Lainie and her son Miro who live in Cusco, the jumping off point for visiting Machu Picchu.
As someone who has a pretty limited imagination when it comes to imagining back in time, I like what they're attempting to do with making it easier to understand the story and culture behind Machu Picchu for those of us who need that little push to really imagine how incredible what we're seeing is. I'm super interested in the evolution of human knowledge, and of course Peru and the Incas are a massive part of that.
- What have been the ancient sites you've enjoyed visiting most?
- How do you get the most out of them? For example, do you read books before you go? Do you prefer a guided tour? I think I prefer tours when visiting cultural sites, but only the half day kind.
- If you've visited Machu Picchu, what was your experience? What are your recommendations for how to get the most out of the experience? Any Dos and Don'ts?
