Adventures With Kit
Adventures With Kit

When you ‘travel with all your heart’, you can’t help but want to share the experiences. These days I’m hiring out as an Adventure Guide and a Tour Director. I’ll take you to places that don’t have Campbell’s Tomato soup on the menu. Places that don’t show up on the list of  ‘all-inclusive’ swim-up bars and American-ized hotel rooms. Not that I have anything against hot showers …

I spend a great deal of time on the road and there’s a good chance I’ll be in a location you’re looking to cover. Last couple of years–Peru, Guatemala, India, Vietnam, Cambodia, Antarctica and Burma.

I see local colour from a different perspective. My writing looks through the eyes of the people who live there. The place always sells better with a fresh new look.

 This is an excerpt from an article I wrote for Revue Magazine in Antigua Guatemala. It doesn’t feel like we’ve even left Antigua.  20 minutes out of the bus plaza behind the market, we’re pulling...

What is an “Adventures with Kit”?

Please read to make sure you know what you’re getting into

The accommodations are in family run inns-not chains.  They’re sometimes quirky and unusual.  If I find a castle, we’ll be in it!  Rooms have attached bath, hot water (normally) and a fan in the ceiling rather than air conditioning.  Comfortable, clean and simple are the order of the day.  I think I’ve chosen well.  This is definitely not a 5 star trip–we’re here for the adventure!

 As with all Adventures with Kit, I’ve left lots of free time with activities available you can join in if you like.  Or not.  There are excellent free walking tours in Lima, Arequipa and Cuzco (just tip the guide).  There’s also a highly recommended photo tour of Cuzco backstreets ($75) or rafting in Arequipa that you might want to jump on. Or you are free to do your own thing.

Canadian Marshmallow Farms

                                          This is not an uncommon site in the spring and the fall of the year if you’re driving down Canada’s byways.  But the question of what it is does require some thought.  What you’re looking at is the result of …

Peru–Now there’s a place for you Kit!

                                           Many years ago I got some advice from a good friend of mine.  We were plowing through old National Geographics in the basement. As I recall you bought them by the pound from the second-hand shop.  The planet hadn’t changed much in my small lifetime so it didn’t matter …
