I first travelled overseas when I was 20 and have been lucky enough to have visited many countries across the globe since with some of my favourites being in South America. Every single country within South America is different and unique, you really can’t just explain the beauty of this amazing continent, it’s truly something you have to see for yourself. I travelled extensively through South America over the course of 6 months and really got to experience the most of every country I visited by immersing myself in the local culture and history, as well as the food! From trekking along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, boarding the Andes in Argentina, getting up close and personal with Anacondas in the Ecuadorian Amazon, drinking Aguardiente with the locals in Colombia, feeling the rush of Iguazu Falls right through to the beaches of Brazil I really felt like there wasn’t anything you couldn’t do. 

More recently, this year (2019) I travelled with Chimu back to South America visiting the Lakes Region of Puerto Varas and Bariloche before spending some time in Buenos Aires where I then headed off on the biggest journey yet to the White Continent of Antarctica. Travelling onboard an Expedition Vessel heading for Antarctica is like nothing you can explain. I was blessed with incredible wildlife spottings and weather for my time in the Weddell Sea and on the Antarctic Peninsula and experienced first hand how important it is for our clients to travel to this remote destination to experience it for themselves.

I love sharing my experiences of travel with other likeminded people and enjoy working in an industry where I get to talk about travel and these amazing continents of South America and Antarctica each day. I look forward to helping you plan your next life changing experience with Chimu Adventures.
