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 The planet hadn’t changed much in my small lifetime so it didn’t matter one bit that they were out of date by a few years.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

- Puno, Lake Titicaca and the reed islands
- That fabulous rail journey overnight to Cusco
- And yes of course we’ll go to Machu Picchu!
