After graduating from Sheffield University with a degree in Geography, Iain was eager to pack his bags and escape the UK. Latin America's astounding natural landscapes combined with its vibrant cultural diversity ensured that the decision of where to go was an easy one, and he spent six months travelling in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia and Mexico. Highlights included the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, the remarkable Atacama Desert in San Pedro and Tayrona National Park in the north of Colombia.
Upon his return to the UK Iain knew that he wanted to put his vast travel experience to good use.
Since joining Audley, Iain has recently returned to Chile and Argentina to experience these countries for a second time and explore new areas. He has watched tango shows in Buenos Aires, sipped wine in Mendoza and flown over Iguazu Falls. It's a tough job but someone has to do it.
I'll never forget when…
One of my most memorable experiences has to be the first ever helicopter ride I took over Iguazu Falls. Although only around 15 minutes long, the views were spectacular and the pilot went round and round in circles to show the falls from all different angles (giving you an adrenaline rush in the process.)
The approach was just as memorable, with vast jungle all around, before seeing a crack in the canopy layer on the horizon where the mighty falls were located. A rainbow towering over the falls themselves was the icing on the cake. Don't forget your camera.
