“One sees great things from the valley; only small things from the peak.” Wise words from Gilbert K. Chesterton and the sentiment is echoed by Sean Kennaway after his visit to a very special part of Peru…
“I travelled with Intrepid to a small community called Chawaytire in the Sacred Valley, about 2 hours outside of Cuzco. Chawaytire sits at about 3300m (10,830 feet) and has a population of around 600, whose primary source of income comes from selling textiles.
Flea is the world’s smallest Intrepid traveller on the world’s tallest Mountain, in a new e-book called Flea, A Himalayan Adventure, by former Intrepid Group Leader, Bruce Foreman. Most of us love travel. Not Flea – an insect who gets booted off his frustrated and itchy host, Bazza the dog, and transported inside an envelope to Durbar Square, Kathmandu.
Homesick, culture-shocked and intent on getting back to Bazza, Flea ends up instead on the top of Everest, where his thwarted plans make for a wonderful guide to the Sherpa homelands in the Everest region.
