Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics
While this is the third time the Japanese capital has been awarded the games, Tokyo has hosted the Olympics only once — in 1964. You must expect bigger crowds in Tokyo from 24 July to 9 August. The Paralympics come right after, from 25 August to 6 September. Start planning this second if you want to attend, as the price for flights, accommodation, and tickets will rise.
The Inca Trail in Machu Pichu – A true adventure
The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is a hiking trail in Peru that terminates at Machu Picchu. It consists of three overlapping trails: Mollepata, Classic, and One Day. Mollepata is the longest of the three routes with the highest mountain pass and intersects with the Classic route before crossing Warmiwañusqa.
Hiking this trail can’t be spontaneous. You will need a permit to make the hike and they are already available. There is a daily limit for the number of hikers so planning early is the right thing to do.
