In May of 2019, I went to Peru for a family vacation and we visited a lot of different places. My favorite experience was going to Machu Picchu, it was unbelievable seeing the city, how all those rocks were placed on such high altitude. Another unbelievable experience was climbing the Huayna Picchu mountain, the view from the top of the mountain was breathtaking and you could see Machu Picchu very clearly, I had a cold so I couldn’t really breath and if you add the altitude of the mountain, it was very challenging for me.

Meaning of name

My name, Olivia, originally derived from the Latin word oliva meaning olive or olive tree, it also means “kind one”. It was given to me because my parents wanted a name that was pronounced the same in English and in Spanish. I have never felt ashamed of my name, or ever changed it
