Lizzie, Latin America Specialist

After eight years studying Spanish Lizzie arrived in Latin America for the first time, where she spent a year teaching English in Mexico. This sparked her passion for Latin America and, after graduating with a First Class degree, she returned to travel extensively throughout both Central and South America, where she particularly enjoyed visiting local markets and honing her haggling skills, and fell in love with Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. Since joining Audley Lizzie has recently returned to Peru, Ecuador and Venezuela where she enjoyed visiting and staying in our range of selected hotels and Galapagos cruise boats. Highlights included soaking under the stars in the hot springs of Colca Lodge in the Colca Canyon of Peru and paddling her feet at the base of the astonishing Angel Falls in Venezuela.

I'll never forget when…

From all my travels throughout Latin America, my most memorable experience would certainly be my cruise in the Galapagos Islands. However, there were so many good bits it's hard to pick just one.

I could rave about snorkelling with playful sea lion pups who nibbled my fins and inspected my underwater camera with great curiosity, but that would be neglecting the Galapagos penguins who shot through the water like bullets, fishing for dinner.

Then back on land I marvelled at iguanas who sat nonchalently nibbling cacti on the footpath while we stepped over and around them. There was no stepping over the giant tortoises; which you could occasionally spot in fields, like huge living boulders chomping slowly away on the grass. It truly was the experience of a lifetime!
