Antonia, Latin America Specialist

I first went to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands 16 years ago as part of an expedition and have been lucky enough to return three times since. The Galapagos archipelago is a magical spot and arguably the best place in the world for close-up wildlife watching.

Having fallen in love with Latin America, I moved to Lima as an exchange student in 2011 as part of my master’s degree in international development and took the chance to travel all over Peru.

I returned to South America on my most recent adventure as part of the crew on the GREAT Britain yacht during the Clipper Round the World sailing race. We crossed the Atlantic twice and sailed over 10,000 nautical miles between Liverpool, Uruguay and South Africa.

Travel is now simply part of who I am and I’m looking forward to sharing my passion and using my experience to help others plan their trips.

I'll never forget when…

My first ever multi-day trek through the Peruvian Andes was an incredibly challenging but rewarding experience. We were trekking for several days through valleys and mountain passes to Huascarán, Peru’s highest peak, and sleeping in tents up to 4,800m above sea level. Getting up early in the morning to find cows and horses surrounding your tent and then watching the sun rise was amazing but the feeling of reaching the highest point of the trek after an exhausting climb was unforgettable. The view into the valley was framed by snow-capped peaks and crater lakes and was beyond spectacular and made the challenging hike up absolutely worthwhile.
