Scared but excited

Tomorrow is the BIG day!!! After waiting a year, I'm finally going to be on my adventure to Peru. This trip all came about after I broke my leg last year, and I came to the realization that if you want to do something, do it now, because you never know what will happen to you tomorrow. So, I planned my fate, and off I go to Peru to hike the Inca Trail (me camping at over 3500 m altitude at zero degrees celsius) is proving to be quite daunting. But I'm ready for it. I'll be flying to Lima, Peru tomorrow, where I have a couple of days of sightseeing before joining the rest of my tour group. We will be exploring the country, hiking the Inca Trail, walking into Macchu Picu at sunrise, visiting Lake Titicaca, and flying to the Amazon. We'll be doing it all. I'm so excited. The Inca Trail is not going to be easy, and to be doing it one year after having a broken leg is going to be my inner strength that will guide me.
We are all stronger than we think. Next week, I'll be finding out just how strong I am. Wish me luck!
