As we stalled the bikes a few times leaving Cusco up the steep hills, nearly got attacked by packs of dogs and started to feel the freezing mountain air we began to realise what we had put ourself into.

MACHU PICHU 1.
So after watching 'Motorcycle Diaries' on multiple occasions and reading Che Guevaras diaries from his incredible travels, I threw it out there that we should avoid the tourist filled treks to Machu Pichu and ride some bikes there. I dont know if it was the high altitude or let lag, but Sophie loved the idea and within 48 hours of here 30 something hour plane ride we were shakily riding out of Cusco before sunrise. A very vague idea of how to get there, a little map with sketches and notes marked all over it and 16 hours lay between ourselves and Machu Pichu.
