I always felt the need to see the world when I began my career in travel back in 1995. Growing up in the UK, I was lucky to have Europe on my doorstep, taking any opportunity I could to head overseas and explore the cultures, communities, and cuisines around me.

Each time I would head further afield until one day I packed my bags and headed off on my first 'OE', through Southeast Asia and on to Australia and New Zealand.  I returned to the UK and 'normal life', but it wasn’t long after my return that my bags were packed again for my first taste of Latin America, on a trip to Cuba. I completely fell in love with the welcoming locals, the history and culture and of course the culinary delights with cocktails! 

My next big adventure to South America began with a six month trip travelling through Ecuador, down in to Peru & Chile, through Patagonia, in to Argentina and ending in Rio for Carnival!  It was a truly amazing and fantastic experience.

There were so many highlights, it’s difficult to pick the best. I'll never forget tubing down the Amazon River, shopping at local markets and sampling Pisco Sours! Dune-buggy adventures in Huacachina, the Inca Trail Trek , wine tasting in Chile, staying with a local family on Lake Titicaca, enjoying the many different cuisines, seeing a Tango show in Buenos Aires, the amazing Iguazu Falls and of course Rio Carnival - there seemed to be something new and incredible to experience everywhere I went!

I have since been back to South America twice, with there always being something new to discover and learn each time.  My next adventure will be to set foot on Antarctica, and then who knows... Galapagos Islands or heading to Central America where I know there so much more to experience and enjoy.

I love to share the joys of my travels with you and look forward to ensuring your trip to Latin America or Antarctica will be a truly memorable one.
