TAKE A HIKE At 14,000 feet high in Peru, Lana and Craig Armstrong say their next trip will be easier.
Lana and Craig Armstrong crossed off Peru’s Machu Picchu and the Inca trail from their To Do list.

They were treated to mouthwatering culinary experiences, but after hiking up to 14,000 feet to see views of the Urubamba River and mountain ranges with Inca archaeological complexes, all they wanted was a shower before they boarded a train to Cusco. Their guide found a local hotel that allowed them to use the bathroom but not sit on the bed!
