Breezy day in Aguas Caliente

Sunday The day for rest or exploring a little, lunch with friends and preparing for Machu Picchu. Wait! There is really no preparing for Machu Picchu if you’re not an outdoor enthusiast but that is for the next post.    Sunday, we slept in, which was much needed!  Up around 10am, dressed and heading out …

Herculaneum is just as cool as Pompeii.. maybe even a little more awesome…

Ercolano What a gloriously sunny and hot day to venture to Herculaneum.  We decided to see Herculaneum instead of Pompeii.  Why?  Well, while Pompeii is synonymous with Italy and Mount Vesuvius, Herculaneum, I had never heard of until Whitney told me about it.  Originally our plans were to go to Vesuvius and then Herculaneum.  It …
