Harry has been quite the adventurous spirit since graduating college. Latin America had always intrigued him and being fond of the outdoors, he wanted to hike bigger mountains and see different places. This led him to grab a backpack and fly to Costa Rica on a one-way ticket with friends. From Costa Rica down to Peru, he experienced everything from rafting Class V rapids in Colombia, machete chopping his way through dense jungles in southern Costa Rica, island hopping from Panama to Colombia, exploring the Colca Canyon in Peru, bungee jumping in Ecuador and completing the classic Inca Trail as part of a five month journey.
He was fortunate to get a job with Audley upon return to the US. Since then he's been able to revisit Peru, Costa Rica, Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands and Colombia. On top of this he went on a research trip to Cuba, learning about the history of a difficult country to understand. Most recently, he's been able to explore Antarctica, which was one of the best experiences he's ever had. Being able to share these experiences and send others on amazing trips feels more like fun than work. Since visiting the polar regions, Harry has his eyes set on hitting all seven continents by his 30th birthday.
Harry listened to our interests and made suggestions as to what we might like to do.

We worked with Audley Travel and Harry for our trip to Ecuador. Harry listened to our interests and made suggestions as to what we might like to do. Harry's recommendation of The Yolita for our seven night Galapagos cruise couldn't have been better. It was active with hikes and snorkeling every day and we had an excellent time. Harry then sent us to Napo Wildlife Center in the Amazon which was, perhaps, his best recommendation. We were extremely lucky to site a jaguar which is a rarity. Thank you Audley and Harry for an unforgettable adventure.
I'll never forget when…
Nothing can excite you more than your first up close sloth interaction. The first few times I encountered a sloth, they would do little more than sit in the tree with their eyes closed. After all, sloths are said to sleep up to 20 hours a day, and some may only move about 300 meters in a whole month. One day, however, we spotted a three-toed sloth at the bottom of a tree near Tortuguero National Park. We walked through the crowd snapping pictures, and that was when the sloth turned it's head very slowly, smiled at me, and began to make his way up the tree. It was such a strange creature -- moving like molasses up the massive tree, and I couldn't help but grin and bask in the wonderful wildlife experience.
