Wanderlust Travel Magazine (UK) - - LIFE– CHANGING TRAVEL -

“In 1964, I went to see a pro­duc­tion of Ib­sen’s The Mas­ter Builder, but I’d mud­dled the dates and in­stead saw a new play called The Royal Hunt of

the Sun, about the con­quest of the In­cas. I knew noth­ing about Peru but wanted to learn more. I found out that there were still Inca ru­ins there, so I took a job to earn money for a South Amer­ica trip. Five years later, I stood gaz­ing down on Machu Pic­chu; an­other five years on and I re­turned with my hus­band to write a back­pack­ing guide to Peru that started Bradt Travel Guides.”
