"It had been something I’d wanted to do for 10 years and finally in September 2011 all the pieces came together for me to take a five  month trip through Latin America. I thought that would satisfy my wanderlust but it’s only intensified it…. I can’t wait to go back!"

I’ve always been a traveller. Having left my native home in the UK nearly 20 years ago with very little money in my pocket but a big passion for travel, my journey began.  During that time I have travelled and worked all over the world, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia but South America was always ‘the dream’.  That dream finally became a reality 2 years ago when I quit my job and decided to spend 5 months travelling around this amazing continent.  It was definitely worth the wait!

This is a continent that has it all.  From piranha fishing in the Ecuadorian jungle, to swimming with sea lions and marine iguanas in the Galapagos Islands, trekking over 2,000 metres to the Inca site of Machu Picchu, rounding up cattle on horseback across the Pampas in Argentina riding down “death road” in Bolivia, partying in Rio for NYE, Then there’s the blank canvas of the Gran Salar de Uyuni. Climbing up an active volcano in Guatemala and diving the blue hole in Belize surrounded by hammerhead sharks. It wasn’t all ‘GO GO GO’. I managed to find time to chill on the white sandy beaches of Ilha Grande, just off the coast of Rio, enjoy wine tasting in Mendoza, chocolate fondue in Bariloche and shopping in Buenos Aires.

This is a place like no other with endless opportunities to visit the most amazing destinations, see such diversity and meet beautiful people.

Working at Chimu Adventures allows me to help you plan your own Latin America dream holiday and make your own memories.
