Many people have a “bucket list” of things that they would like to do “one day”. Gerda from justcallmegertie (AKA The Blogging Accountant), is one of the few people I know who is actively working their way through their list.
Her sense of adventure, and willingness to try something new and completely out of her comfort zone, is truly awesome! Her most recent trip was to South America to walk the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
Don’t miss this post!!!

What started out as a tick on my bucket list, ended off as a personal pilgrimage for me. But in the end, I completed the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. I don’t want to run ahead of myself, but when I (finally) entered the Sun Gate and had the first view of Machu Picchu, I cried. Amidst all the congratulatory hugs and high fives, I had to swallow back the tears that welled up in my eyes. I made it. I could not remember the last time (if ever), I was in so much physical pain, but I did not regret a moment of it. As we posed for a group picture and the designated guy to take the picture said ‘Say Never Again’, I thought I probably would never do it again, but I am so glad I did. For me, to prove to myself that I can do it.
