Ok...ok...Machu Picchu!! We 👀 see you!. . . . Views from Machu Picchu Mountain. 👌🏽 If you visit Machu Picchu it’s totally worth hiking one of the mountain options, Huayna (Wayna) Picchu or Machu Picchu. Tickets are limited for these mountains so make sure to book in advance. Climbing Machu Picchu Mountain was definitely a highlight of the day! at Machu Picchu Mountain

If you guessed Machu Picchu on our last post...🚨ding, ding, ding🚨you are correct 📣!!. . . . We hiked Machu Picchu Mountain, one of the two mountains you can climb when you visit. It was a strenuous hike walking up over 2,670 steep steps, but as you can see...it was well worth it! 💪🏻 ⛰ 😍. . . . . 👉🏼 Check out our newly launched online store ✨Kilik Shop✨!

Peru was made for outdoor enthusiasts. 🧗‍♀️🚵‍♂️ To be honest, we have never been outdoorsy people. This trip has really changed that for us. Being outdoors connected with mother nature, breathing the fresh air is good for the body, the mind and the soul! . . . Can anyone guess what part of Peru this is at? I will give you a hint..it is 3,061m (10,042ft) in altitude, it takes a strenuous 4hrs to hike up and down and when you get to the top it leaves you breathless…literally and because of the views of course! 😉. . . . Btw, thanks for all your good wishes on our newly launched online shop ✨Kilik✨! A store that brings you, Unique Artisan Designs At Your Reach, allowing us to share a bit of our travels in a different way!! ❤️ . . . . 👉🏼 Kilik Shop 📲 Click link in bio at Peru

Guys we have an important announcement! We are beyond excited and pleased to launch our online shop… ✨Kilik✨! . . . A lot of hard work and dedication has gone into the development of this special project. Kilik gives you the opportunity to get your hands on unique pieces from around the world, allowing your purchase to help the hands that make these artisan products. Our motivation for starting Kilik was to give a helping hand to the artisans that have crafted these products. We wanted to make a small difference by creating another avenue for their products to reach a wider audience and help contribute to their local economy. With the fast paced industrialization in various parts of the world, these handmade goods are in danger of being replaced by imitations. It is real, it is here and unfortunately it is happening. . . . Travel has helped us realize how your purchases, as small as they may be, can have a positive impact on an entire family. We truly hope Kilik is the start of a bigger project to help make an even bigger impact to those that need it around the world. . . . En Kilik… lo hacemos de todo corazón! ❤️. . . . 👉🏼Check out the Kilik Shop! 📲Click link in bio at Ollantaytambo - Valle Sagrado de los Incas

When traveling it’s always good to have a plan, but always leave room for flexibility.... . . . One of the best things about long term traveling is the amount of time you have and the ability to do what you want, as you please. You never know who you will meet that might encourage you to change routes or tell you about a cool place you shouldn’t miss. Don’t make your plans so rigid that you might miss out on some of the best experiences of your travels. Spending 2 days in La Selva Lacandona with the indigenous Lacandones community was a highlight of our trip to Chiapas! Being flexible is just one of many ways we make the most out of our travels. Do you like to plan ahead or do you prefer flexibility in your travels? . . . . Check out more on our blog & our stories for a sneak peak of our experience exploring Selva Lacandona. . 👉🏼 How To Make The Most Out Of Your Travels 📲 Link in bio at Corazon De La Selva Lacandona

Pay attention to the small details, you might find things that you would otherwise miss. This is one way we enjoy our travel life to the fullest.

I think we’ve all been homesick from time to time specially if you are traveling long term. How can we not if we are trying to make this our normal life?! I’m sure we’ve all been caught up in a rut or simply burned out from trying to see and do everything on our bucket list. When this happens, we take a step back and remind ourselves of why we started this journey in the first place. We came up with “How To Make The Most Out Of Your Travels” to help us get back to basics and keep enjoying the beautiful backpacking life! Here are some of our favorites:. . 1️⃣Push yourself to do things you have never done before. . 2️⃣Do things that are important and meaningful to you. . 3️⃣Embrace the struggle. . 4️⃣Travel for you and no one else. . . How do you make the most out of your travels? . . . 👉🏼 How To Make The Most Out Of Your Travels 📲 Link in bio at Corazon De La Selva Lacandona

We continued our journey to the next Mayan ruin, this one was even further in the Lacandona Jungle. The only way to get here was to drive to the Chiapas/Guatemala border, then travel by boat up the Usumacinta River (which divides Guatemala and Mexico) for 45minutes. We were then dropped off and walked through the dense jungle until reaching Yaxchilan. If you love adventure, this is the place for you! . . . . Although it was very out of the way, it was a once in a lifetime experience! To be able to see and touch thousands of years of history with our own hands. Yaxchilan is know for its extensive history detailed in its well preserved carvings. When walking through doorways at Yaxchilan make sure to look up and I promise you will be happily surprised! (Swipe to see.) . . . Check out 👀 more in our stories! at Zona Arqueológica de Yaxchilán

Who run the world??? Girls! 🎶🤸‍♂️ ...or at least they did in Palenque! 🗿. . . . . Palenque Mayan Ruins are located deep in the jungle of Chiapas. These ruins are special because it is said that this is one of the only sites in Mayan culture that allowed a woman to rule! 💪🏻The tomb of La Reina Roja (Red Queen) 👸🏼 was found here. . . . If you visit, make sure to visit during the week for less crowds, give yourself at least 2 hrs to walk the sites, and don’t forget to bring mosquito repellent!!! (Jungle mosquitos are no joke!) at Palenque, Chiapas, Mexico

Traveling is not easy and it’s not for everyone, but it molds you and makes you see things for what they really are. Traveling has made us humble and appreciative, yet given us strength, courage, confidence, and balls to simply go after what we want. One thing resonates with me more than ever...be that change you want to see in this world...so let’s stop talking about it and let’s start being about it! Have an awesome Friday everyone ✌🏼🙌🏻 at San Cristóbal Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico

A gorgeous river leads up to the Velo De Novias waterfall. It takes a good 30 minutes to get to the waterfall, but that didn’t matter with views like these! . . . . You can actually camp here, swim here and even make your own picnic. The only thing we regret is not planing to spend an entire day here. at Cascada el Chiflon Velo de Novia

We drove around 2hrs away from the Lakes of Montebello to visit the famous “Velo De Novias” (Brides Veil) waterfall. The water was even more turquoise than anything we’d ever seen. We had to stop and enjoy it’s beauty...and this wasn’t even the actual Velo De Novias Waterfall...stay tuned to see the real thing! at Cascada el Chiflon Velo de Novia

Undoubtedly some of the most beautiful lakes I’ve seen in Mexico! #chiapasionate at Lagos de Montebello

The Montebello Lakes 💗 . . . . . This is a National Park located on the border between Chiapas and Guatemala. The park is made up of 59 lakes that vary in color from emerald, turquoise, dark green, purple and even reddish black. The colors vary depending on its mineral contents. Some lakes are easily accessible by foot or car and others you’ve got to kayak or take a small boat to get there! . . . Have you ever visited a lake like this before? at Lagos De Montebello Chiapas

Guys! We can’t wait to show you more about the beautiful state of Chiapas, Mexico! Another one of our favorites. . . . . We were lucky enough to have the luxury to travel slow and spent almost a month here. Not only did it save us on travel expenses, but we just couldn’t get enough. We even contemplated moving here! 💗 🏡 Have you ever visited a place that made you feel like this? at San Cristóbal Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico
