Many years ago, I was flicking through a travel brochure and spotted a photo of Machu Picchu. I had no idea where it was or how to get there and so the adventure began planning my first round-the-world trip. Since then, I have now ticked off 60 countries and all seven continents.
After trekking the famous Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, I vowed to never do a multi-day trek again, especially not at high altitudes.... until I decided to live in Cusco! This provided a unique opportunity to continue working in the industry I love for local operators and explore more of the region.
With nearly two decades of experience in the travel industry, I've dedicated my expertise to Latin America since 2007.
I trekked to Vinicuna, Rainbow Mountain, well before it graced the pages of Instagram. The experiences and landscapes in Latin America remain unparalleled, offering some of the most exceptional and unique wonders on our planet.
I can’t wait to return and uncover even more hidden gems.
