Fiona's story with South America began at an early age as her school was twinned with a school in Recuay in the mountains of Peru. She participated in many a bring and buy sale to raise funds for the school and when she took a year sabbatical she decided to visit the school in Peru. This became a 12 year stay in Cusco, visiting the length of the country by any means possible. She now speaks Spanish fluently, has done the Inca trail many times and still loves visiting Machu Picchu. She has most recently spent six weeks in Brazil visiting everywhere from Iguazu to the Pantanal, the Opera House in Manaus and many beaches in Bahia. She is currently looking forward to her next trip to Brazil.

I'll never forget when…
It is incredibly hard to pick one particular travel experience as there have been so many. A fabulous one was into the mountains south of Cusco to an area where the Q'ero mountain people live. The trek was six days in total and my travelling partners were all guides from Cusco and the USA. We were visiting this little visited area as it was on another friend's to do list. On arrival to the first village I was so excited as the men of the village were on their daily meeting and I saw my compadre (old friend). His face when he realised that it was me visiting him in his village, two days walk over two 5000 metre passes from the closest road was priceless. Worth every step.
