Sacred Valley of the Incas

Sacred Valley of the Incas

I was preparing to celebrate a half century of living on this planet, and was thinking how fortunate I am to be blessed with a wonderful family, fulfilling marriage, strong faith, excellent health, and a rewarding career.

Is it possible to be excessively blessed?

With a tang of guilt I was also feeling that life had gotten too comfortable lately, too predictable. I needed a challenge, a chance to face the unfamiliar, to get well outside my comfort zone and let the adrenaline flow. My wife supported the idea of a motorcycle trip.

My friend Culin had a milestone birthday coming as well; he was about to turn 40. We were business partners for many years, so I know he travels well. He also loves a good adventure. Not surprisingly the call went something like this:

Me: Hey Culin, want to go on a motorcycle trip?
Culin: Sure, where to?
Me: How about Africa?
Culin: I can't - my wife loves Africa and I wouldn't feel right going without her.
Me: How about Peru?
Culin: Sure, when?
Me: April would be good, right at the end of the rainy season. I'll book the airline tickets.

More to follow...
