JT’s Adventure 100:  Machu Picchu!

Welcome, and thank you for considering joining me on an adventure to experience the mind-blowing beauty, culture, and architecture of Peru and Machu Picchu in May 2022.  

The most famous Incan site in South America, Machu Picchu has been on people’s bucket list since they were first fascinated by it as a kid.  It is an archaeological site characterized by mind-blowing architectural techniques and resident alpacas, surrounded by the breath-taking Andean mountains.

The usual way to get there?  By train from Cusco, Peru.

The usual place to stay?  A 3- or 4-star hotel in Aguas Calientes, the tourist town at the base of the mountain that cradles the ancient royal estate of Machu Picchu between its two peaks.

If you’ve learned anything about Transformation, Travel, and Tacos or researched joining me on in JT's Adventure 100, then you know that “usual” is for “vacationers”… which is the  exact opposite of what drives growth, change, and sustained life transformation.

Which means it’s the opposite of what we do.  

And that’s why we take a different route.  We stay in different places.  We use different forms of transportation.  We seek different experiences. In short, we make it a growth-focused Adventure...

Machu Picchu

Lima. Cusco. Ollantaytambo. Machu Picchu. Chinchero. Lake Titicaca.

The trip I have planned for experiencing Peru is unmatched.  Discover why.

After flying early in the morning from Lima into Cusco, you’ll start with a van ride to Chinchero.  There, we’ll experience an authentic market, filled with local produce, hand-woven fabrics, and Andean clothing.  Then, we’ll experience the circular agricultural terraces of Moray and the 5000 salt evaporation ponds of Maras in an exciting, unique way.  After learning about these 2 lesser known archaeological sites, we’ll then complete our first day with the first of 2 nights in Ollantaytambo…

… one of the last standing fortresses defending the Incas against the Spaniards in the mid-1400s.  

(It also happens to be a place I would move to.  Tomorrow.)

Ollantaytambo is beautiful.  Peaceful.  It exposes us to a simpler time and culture.  Surrounded by mountains and exceptional ruins originally commissioned by royalty, it is also the starting point of the famous Inca Trail.  

The morning of Day 2, I have a surprise in store for you.  

Here’s all I’ll say, because this is a completely unique experience:  together, we’ll start at an elevation greater than 14,000 feet near the base of a massive glacier and descend nearly 5000 feet over the course of about 2 hours.  

We will return that afternoon to Ollantaytambo, have lunch, and then visit the ruins surrounding Ollantaytambo before bedding down that night in preparation for an early morning to start our next adventure.

We spend Day 3 on the last portion of the Inca Trail.  (Yes, THAT Inca Trail!)  

Instead of spending the normal 4 days on the Inca Trail tent camping, we’re going to spend one day trekking the final portion… a day that ends entering Machu Picchu from the lesser-traveled Sun Gate.  

We’ll enter Machu Picchu later in the afternoon, when the typical tourist is leaving for the day.  With fewer people at the site, we’ll have better opportunities for taking authentic, uninterrupted photos of this classic ruin and its stunning construction techniques that still baffle today’s building engineers. 

We’ll spend the evening in Aguas Calientes and return to Machu Picchu the next morning for a guided tour on Day 4… but only after a special excursion to the top of one of the surrounding mountains that overlooks the Incan citadel.  Late that afternoon, we’ll begin our journey back to Ollantaytambo, where we’ll take a well-deserved night of rest and sleep.

On Day 5, we start our journey to a Quechua village nearly 1000 meters above Ollantaytambo.  Here, we will not only get private demonstrations of the Andean art of cleaning and dying alpaca and then weaving it into fabric to create garments…

...we will also stay in the homes of the villagers for the night.  In the morning of Day 6, we will enjoy breakfast together and enjoy a hike in the mountains while our hosts use an ancient cooking technique to prepare our lunch.  Afterwards, we will have the opportunity to thank our hosts and then return to Ollantaytambo or Cusco that afternoon.

Of course, there is more.  Day 7 is still wide open, with options to make our own chocolate bars in a "Bean to Bar" experience.  Cooking classes.  Pisco sours.  Additional ruins.  Perhaps even massages.

On Day 8 or 9, we will experience what most people who travel to Peru never even consider…

… staying with a host family on an island in the middle of Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world.

I’m going to leave the specifics of this activity a surprise for now, but know that we will be eating and sleeping again in the homes of the host families, which gives us the opportunity to immerse ourselves in a contrasting culture that serves to more deeply consider our perspectives and priorities.

And careful consideration of perspectives and priorities always leads to growth.

In summary… you can do what most people do:  fly into Lima, fly to Cusco, take a train to Aguas Caliente, and spend a morning and afternoon in Machu Picchu.  Like a vacationing tourist.

And if that's all you're interested in or have time for:  go for it.  I genuinely wish you an incredible adventure.

Or...

...you can join me for 10-12 days in JT’s Adventure 100 and experience a uniquely curated, growth-producing True Purpose Adventure.  

And one more thing:

These trip details aren't exact.  I might add something.  Logistics might force us to subtract something small.

We'll be in Peru... a developing country.  Which means you never know:  something absolutely amazing might pop up that causes us to re-evaluate an entire day.

What I can absolutely tell you, without hesitation, is that everything we do will be focused around doing things that are unique, visiting cultures that create contrast, and occasionally having our jaw drop in wonder.

Together, we'll go.  Together... we'll grow.

Join me in Peru. Become one of the exclusive Adventurers in JT’s Adventure 100.

Learning from the experience of others is a shortcut to wisdom.

Here are my predictions for you, if you qualify.  Consider this...

You are surrounding yourself with growth-focused, adventurous people who want to make the world a better place.

Because of that...

  • Lifetime friendships will be formed.
  • People will go on multiple True Purpose Adventures and start requesting to be… Together.
  • NEW True Purpose Adventure destinations will be recommended, researched, and then travelled.  Together.
  • Adventurers will encourage and support each other towards better Health, so they can do more.  Together.
  • Adventurers will deepen relationships and earn greater Admiration from spouses, family, friends, and business associates.
  • Lessons from preparation, travel, conversation, and debriefs will lead to a deeper, more refined sense of Purpose.
  • Opportunities will be created, and changes in life perspective will create lifestyle changes that increase the Profit in your accounts.
  • Ultimately, the world will feel the Impact of your Transformation, your Travel, and your joyful version of “Tacos”.

I’m excited for you.  For US.

Because - over time - together, we are going to learn each other's hopes, dreams, and aspirations… and then we get to experience the joy of thinking about how to help each other achieve those things.

IF we move forward together, here are a few specific details...

Here are a few quick additional reminders and specific “terms” of JT’s Adventure 100.

1

You will have a 30-day, 100% money-back guarantee. If you change your mind, just let me know within 30 days, and I’ll issue a full refund. No worries. No hard feelings.

Think about it: I’m creating a community of incredible, growth-focused people who I’ll be guiding and leading on bucket list adventures in developing countries. I want you to WANT to be there!

2

Purely for logistical reasons in a developing country, and so that the experience has its intended transformative effect (elevated HAPPIness), I must limit the number of people I take on each True Purpose Adventure.

When a trip is announced, commit EARLY. If demand increases, and when I can, I’ll do my best to schedule a repeat trip to that destination.

3

Each trip will have its own set of important details to consider. Of course, I’m always there to explain and answer questions once a trip is announced, but be sure you understand everything that is included or excluded.

For example, you always purchase your own transportation to and from the city and country in which we start an adventure. Check the details of each trip.

4

Finally, the tough one: I am fiercely protective of the adventurers in JT’s Adventure 100. Safety, growth, and exposure to contrast that may elevate perspectives are paramount to our journey, whether we are on a trip together, in a Facebook group, on a Zoom call, or interacting in any way.

People are unique. Cultures are different. I value and deeply respect those differences. The contrast is life-changing. I reserve the right to remove anyone from the community who creates risk, operates unsafely, or acts disrespectfully.  Even if we're on the side of a mountain.

This isn't for most people... but it is for people who seek growth, understand the power of contrast-seeking adventure travel, and respect the value of community.

And if you've made it this far down the page, I'm inviting you to apply.
