After my first year in Sweden and the long, challenging season, I wanted to take a trip to decompress my experience, gain some perspective, and relax a little bit. I planned a trip to visit my little sister, who was then studying abroad in Quito, Ecuador. Together we would trek the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru.
