In Travel Truths, we talk to travelers of all kinds – solo, group, young, old, new & experienced, and hear about their journeys, where they went, and what they learned along the way. This week, we interviewed Rosa, a mom, partner, and businesswoman who decided to take the trip of a lifetime – to Machu Picchu – on her own.

A place I can’t even spell, let alone know exactly where it is! Here’s the conversation we had about her eye-opening journey this past April.
