My Visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau

In September 2010, exactly nine years after the world-changing events of September 11, 2001, which I experienced firsthand in New York City, I found myself standing amidst the remnants of Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland.

Machu Picchu - The Opulent Explorer

When we travel, we seek more than just sights; we seek experiences that elevate our spirits.

Yet, this trip was imbued with a bittersweet note as it coincided with a family milestone back home—my son’s first steps—witnessed not by us, but by my late mother. Her joy in those moments became a cherished memory that outshone even the most extraordinary wonders of Peru. – The Opulent Explorer

After landing in San Pedro Sula, we embarked on a precarious four-hour drive that led us back in time to one of the Mayan civilization’s most significant sites, discovered in 1570 but hidden from the modern eye until the 19th century.
