Why I love the business:
I love taking care of people and being in a high energy company.
Favorite travel/vacation experience:
Most people don’t know, but the best way to experience Machu Picchu is to hike up Huayna Picchu. It’s the mountain in the back of my photo and it’s steeper, has a higher altitude, and a front seat view of the ruins down in Machu Picchu. You have to register your name in a book on your way up, then sign it on your way down so they make sure no one was lost on the trip. We started our hike at 6 in the AM and had lunch up at the peak and watched the ruins disappear and reappear from underneath the clouds that constantly rolled by. No photo can do it justice. Our guide shared a lot of stories about the importance of the sun, water, fire, and earth and it was just so peaceful – even for someone like me who is always attached to my cell phone. At the base of the mountain there is a spot where you can stamp your passport to show that you’ve been to Machu Picchu. Needless to say, it’s my favorite passport stamp.
