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  The planet hadn’t changed much in my small lifetime so it didn’t matter one bit that they were out of date by a few years. They were by far my favorite reading.

“Peru–now there’s a place for you Kit.  You should be in Peru”  mused Bill

It took me another 20 years or so but I made it to Peru on a bet.  I paid off a ship in Valparaiso  Chile and bet some engineer friends I’d beat them to Manaus in Brazil.  They were going round the horn and I was heading overland.  They bet they would never see me again……

One day I’ll tell you the story of 5 days up the Ucayali River by banana boat….. but for now, let’s fast forward to April 2018, a company called Kudu Travel based in the UK (“walking cultural tours” they call them) and a new adventure.   This is my latest trip,  the company asked me to help design it and you’re all invited! I can’t tell you how excited I am>

Just so you know, this won’t be your ordinary run-of-the-mill trip to Machu Picchu……

  • Arequipa and the Colca Canyon in search of Condors
  • Puno, Lake Titicaca and the reed islands
  • That fabulous rail journey overnight to Cusco
  • And yes of course we’ll go to Machu Picchu!
