Did I use to travel with only a cellphone and gopro? Yes. Do I wish I had a DSLR at that time? Yes. But also just so happy that we have the technology to carry a camera in your pocket or bag to document the moments. When I look at these photos, its not (only) the quality or lack of I look at, but rather the moments I was able to capture and remember with these photos.
I traveled to Peru in the Fall of 2017 with my eyes set on the Inca Trail. We flew into Lima primarily where we stayed one night and then flew to Cusco the following day. Before hiking the Inca Trail they recommend a minimum 3 day stay in Cusco to get used to the altitude, which as an asthmatic, I took to heart. But I am so glad that we did because Cusco was AMAZING. So much culture and color in one place, and we may have indulged in a market or two. On day 4 we embarked on our amazing 4 day trek through the Andes with an amazing group of people from all over the world. I didn’t take as many photos as I would have now, but I am ever thankful for the ones I do have.
