Peru: The Inca Royal Highway
by Isabelle Guyot
About the Book
Second episode of the series, Isabelle travels to Peru to find the Inca Royal Highway.
“Hiking the trail was a great experience. It’s not for everyone, because it is a really hard hike, but it sure made the experience of arriving at Machu Picchu really seem like an accomplishment and that I had really ‘earned’ my trip there. [...] The Amazon was an unforgettable experience, the wildlife was really great. Our planet is very fragile; I wish people will take more care of it. You realised how fragile the eco system is in the Amazon Basin. The Inca civilisation was truly fascinating, I have learnt so much! I will repeat myself again, but that was really an overwhelming experience never to be forgotten…”
