Two years ago, Dex’s Spanish teacher presented a plan to take all her kids on a dream trip to Peru. This was someplace I had never thought we could go, but we worked to save the money and luckily the school worked with Educational Tours, which allowed us to pre-pay monthly (and interest free!).
The group of middle schoolers, many of whom did not know each other before the trip, headed to South America this summer and one of the biggest attractions they visited was, of course, Machu Picchu.
It was interesting from our perspective, as the parents who stayed home with our child a world away… Dex was definitely homesick and had the most fun doing mundane things like playing games back at the hotels.
He didn’t take as many photographs as I would have expected, so some of the below were taken by his fellow travelers. I did ask him to get a selfie from “that famous view.” You can bet this photo is framed at our house.
