Rest day before the big event
11.11.2012 - 12.11.2012 75 °F
Stories and Experience:
We made it to the Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu town). At the train we didn’t have to checking all of our bags. My backpack they didn’t want to be responsible for so they let up carry it on. Also no one check for the weight of our carry on bags too. The train ride up to Aguas Calientes was very beautiful. We met a very nice lady from Florida that was traveling alone and completing her bucket list. Very nice conversation.
When we got into Aguas Calientes my lovely wife got a touch of the flu and did really feel well to go run around town. Since this was a rest day, we decide to go to the hot spring and get a massage and call it an early night.
What To Do:
The hot spring was good for 1 solas it’s good to have a soak in some stinky mineral water. After all the running around it did help. After that, we got a massage and some dinner.
If you are traveling heavy like we are large suitcase, backpack and a laptop bag. You can get take your large suitcase on the train, just pretend you didn’t know
Gear and Advise:
Go light! I would have like to only pack for 4 day. I pack for 6 day and it was too much
It was a rest day for us. I would recommend it before going to Machu Picchu
