On the occasion of her 30thbirthday, “Dancing with the Stars” very own Julianne Hough got the surprise of her life when her hubby Brooks Laich took her on a whirlwind trip to Machu Picchu. Yet, from the sounds of it, it just might have been a trip that actually changed the life of Laich even more so.

“This visit has changed me immensely, and I will re-think many things in my life,” Laich wrote on an Instagram post on Sunday (July 22.) “Machu Picchu is a shining example of how mankind and Mother Nature can co-exist in harmony. What an incredible experience to visit this beautiful place. The best lesson I took from this experience was how respectful the Inca people were of Mother Earth.”

Machu Picchu is a shining example of how mankind and Mother Nature can co-exist in harmony. What an incredible experience to visit this beautiful place. — The best lesson I took from this experience was how respectful the Inca people were of Mother Earth. “Pachamama” as she is known here, provided the Inca with everything they needed to live – the stones, the wood, the vegetation, the water, the wildlife etc.. And the Inca showed respect for Pachamama by always giving back to her, and by living sustainably and not being ‘takers’ from her. It is a tremendous lesson for us today, as we tend to be ‘consumers’ of natural resources more than preservers of natural resources. This visit has changed me immensely, and I will re-think many things in my life. I hope that sharing this story will have the same effect on you….. #onelove 🌎

The newlyweds, who married in July of last year, shared a number of other pics on their social media channels of their extravagant getaway, including one pic of them donning brand new, homemade ponchos and another one of them going on a zip lining adventure.

If you’re gonna do Peru, you might as well do it in style! Yesterday while traveling from Cusco to Machu Picchu, we stopped at a small village and bought some hand-made poncho’s. The one I’m wearing took 1.5 months to make, the one my wife is wearing took 2.5 months to make. The artistry and dedication of the Peruvian women we bought these from is absolutely unbelievable! What an incredible talent, made entirely from hand, and only with the elements that Mother Nature provides them! I’d say the birthday squad looks pretty good in them – you can never doubt the commitment of this crew – happy birthday @juleshough! #machupicchu #peru — 📷: the best Peruvian guide a group could ever wish for, our man @atiliodocty !!

Yet another pic shared with fans included a loving thank you message from Hough herself.

“My husband @brookslaich knocked my 30th birthday out of the park and all the way to Machu Picchu,” she wrote. “Coming here has always been a dream of mine and to be able to celebrate a monumental closing of a chapter and beginning of a new one, is truly indescribable! Thank you Brooks for completely blowing my mind with your thoughtful and adventurous spirit! I love you so much I can’t even handle myself!”

My husband @brookslaich knocked my 30th birthday out of the park… and all the way to Machu Picchu ⛰Coming here has always been a dream of mine and to be able to celebrate a monumental closing of a chapter and beginning of a new one, is truly indescribable! I have been on such a journey the last few years but especially in the last 7 months. Brooks has been there every step of the way supporting me in all of my out of the box, wild ideas and dreams… discovering new parts of me I didn’t even know existed. I couldn’t be happier turning 30 and feeling so much more of what life truly is about. #unfiltered and totally #unknown -Life is absolutely remarkable! Thank you Brooks for completely blowing my mind with your thoughtful and adventurous spirit! I love you so much I can’t even handle myself! #machupicchu #pachamamma #fathersun #bestbirthdayever #dressedtoimpress 😜 #divinefeminine #spire #energyrich
