Most of us have a happy place, a place inside our heads where happiness and a state of being ecstatic is derived from. While some of us consider it a safe place, an escape, or sometimes merely a fond memory; My happy place will forever be Machu Picchu. And even though I’ve never been.. i hope someday i will with that special someone. I imagine us climbing up to one of the most breath-taking views in the world and screaming our lungs out in victory while we hug, kiss and jump all at once :p
Machu Picchu will always have that place in my heart and mind because it teaches me that – Even though it lies in ruins, it still is beautiful in its own way. Be careful to observe it from different grounds, a new elevation or with a new perception and appreciate it not just for what it is but also because it could be much more in the bigger picture.
