Unexpected surfing of the (crimson) wave while hiking the Inca Trail/Machu Picchu, Peru

In a couple of months, we will be trekking the Inca Trail/Machu Picchu with the Apu Andino Travel Peru guides – then it occurred to me:

What if Aunty Robin decides to come for a visit?

I did a quick Google search & came across this fantastic blog post from Go Girl Guides about a traveller’s experience & her tips for Aunt Robin’s unexpected drop-in.

I know this post will probably grose out what very few male readership I have, but let’s face it, it’s a real ‘sitch’ & something that I need to put out there for the rest of my fellow (female) travellers.

Have you ever been in this situation & if so, share your tales!

Safe travels,

    Have fun on the Inca Trail, it’s on my Bucket list, and not on my schedule yet! Oh… and ewe!

      Hi eric,
      haha I literally LOL-ed @ work reading your post!

      You definitely need to do the Inca Trail. I never really considered it until someone dumped it in my bucketlist – and now I’m going =)

      Are you travelling at moment? (Just looking at your profile pic!)

        Leaving on Thursday for a long weekend in Vegas with friends. We were in Zion 2 weeks ago, that was a fun Labor day weekend! We’re house hunting which is putting a crimp in our planning right now, so after this weekend we have “no plans” that makes me antsy.

        Oh wow you’ll have to give me tips for Vegas. We’ll be doing a quick stopover there in Feb.

        Good luck with your house hunting – i’m sure there’s a fabulous one with your name on it:)
