Georgia's love for all things Hispanic started from a young age. During her gap year before university she independently organised a trip to Mexico where she flew out on her own, worked in an orphanage for three months, and then travelled with new friends throughout the country for another two months.
She studied Spanish and Portuguese at Nottingham University, which involved learning all about the culture, art, history, literature and cinema of every country where Portuguese and Spanish are spoken, as well as becoming fluent in both languages. During her compulsory third year abroad she spent six months studying and living in southern Spain, followed by five months working and travelling around Brazil.
After recently graduating from university she has returned to Brazil and also travelled to Argentina with Audley, getting to know both countries very well and loving every minute of experiencing the culture and the people that she has encountered.

Although almost impossible to choose, one of my most memorable travel experiences has to be mini-trekking on the Perito Moreno glacier in El Calafate, Patagonia. The third biggest glacier in the world, Perito Moreno is really impressive, and nothing like I have ever seen before. Patagonia in general is one of the most beautiful places to visit, and El Calafate is a lovely town surrounded by mountains and lakes.
As you trek on the glacier you pass deep crevices and turquoise pools, which you can drink from, and at the top the guides give you whiskey, using bits of the glacier as ice. After the trekking you can go on a trail where from several 'balconies' you have remarkable views of the glacier in its entirety. Often you can witness pieces falling off, making sounds comparable to thunder or gunshots. The tour from start to finish lasts about four hours and it is definitely best to go as early as possible so as to miss the majority of the crowds.
