When I was 19 years old I made a trip to Peru with some friends. The most amazing thing was the feeling of being on the very top of the world!!!! We climbed the Huayna Picchu, the mountain that rises over Machu Picchu. It was so difficult to get there, so tiring, and we were not prepared — we didn’t even take water!!! But when we finally arrived at the top of that mountain, the feeling was of astonishment, amazement, disbelief, wonder, miracle and satisfaction. Everything I saw was below me. And I could see miles away! It was really amazing.
