I have been fortunate to travel many places with my family through out my life. Typically my family and I travel south, to countries like mexico and recently Puerto Rico and Peru. While in Peru, my family and I climbed/hiked up the Inca trail that runs through out the Andes Mountains.

It offered quite a bit of breathtaking views, and I have attatched some of the photos from the trail below. I firmly believe that if you are physicaly and finacialy able, Hiking the Inca Trail is something everyone should do at least once in their lives.

How To Cook Steak

I figured since steak is my favorite food, I’d attach a YouTube video of how a steak is properly cooked(Medium Rare is the best temp for steak).
