Exploring Macchu Picchu in 8 Hours or Less (via IT’S NEVER TOO LATE.)

Many thanks for sharing these amazing pics of this impressive, miraculous place on earth. @D

Exploring Macchu Picchu in 8 Hours or Less This post is long overdue. Things have been pretty rough at work lately, so I haven’t had much time to update. After staring at a computer screen for 10+ hours a day, it’s the absolute LAST thing I feel like doing when I get home. But it’s all good.

You look down on us, me
How? Love, contempt, regret?
Do you feel guilty or free
Me too, I’ll see what I’ll beget

Great pics, especially the lush green garden.

14 Days in Ireland - Day 4: Slieve Donard Overlook (again), Tea with Violet, Cushendall, Cushendun, Torr Head, and Dunluce Castle After my breakfast of soda bread French toast that 4th day of the photo tour, I loaded myself and my stuff into the van and we set out for one last photo op at Slieve Donard Overlook.  But first….The Secret Garden.  The previous night, as the van turned onto the road from the b&b’s driveway, we noticed off to the side an arched entrance looking into a beautifully-manicured garden we immediately dubbed The Secret Garden.  John promised to st … Read More
