Day 3: Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu Pueblo
Being a travel vlogger I sometimes get a bit too preoccupied when filming that I forget to snap photos. Usually, this is not the case. When I travel it’s like this wave of psycho camera OCD engulfs my body forcing me to film and photograph everything or else I get panic attacks thinking that I might miss something. If you have ever traveled with me you know this is true.
Yes, I am that annoying Facebook friend with millions of pictures of herself from her travels. Somehow I feel like those photos are my memories and I ALWAYS go back and revisit them, scroll through my photos and relive my trip like it was yesterday.
I don’t know why I feel this way since even if I don’t photograph everything, I still film it so you can always watch the video. However, I still feel like I am missing something whenever I do not snap a photo or, heaven forbid, forget my camera.
This blog post is one of those panic attacks. I suddenly realized I only have photos from two of the seven places I visited today. I think I am going to faint!
So let me sum up what I do NOT have any photos of: We spent the night at the Sacred Valley in this amazing lodge that I have no photo of. Then we went white water rafting, again, no photos. Onwards to Ollantantambo for lunch, WHICH, I actually do have a photo of.
Then we hopped on the most scenic train ride ever, towards Machu Picchu. Took a dip in the hot springs and finally spent the night at Aguas Calientes, the town at the base of the Machu Picchu mountain.
See, it’s not nearly as exciting as if there were more photos. But, I guess it is not all that bad since I do have this amazing video from it.
Are you an OCD photo-taker too?
