After graduating from Sheffield University, Nick spent time undertaking charity work alongside Prince William in remote parts of southern Chile. Taking advantage of this unique opportunity, he then went on to travel extensively through Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil.
Embarking on a career with Audley Travel has enabled Nick to further develop his interest in the landscape and culture of the continent he loves. As part of his role, he has returned to South America on several occasions to expand his knowledge of Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Guyana, Argentina and Antarctica.
Nick has also played an integral part in assisting with the set up of the Central America programme by travelling through Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Honduras.
I'll never forget when…
I was staying at the Heath River Wildlife Centre, a lodge buried deep in the Peruvian Amazon. I arrived knowing that some people spend weeks there, or even months, searching for a harpy eagle. One morning, I went with my guide to a treehouse suspended in the rainforest canopy near the lodge. Within ten minutes, a harpy eagle glided in across the treetops and sat on a branch barely a stone’s throw away from me. It stayed put for about a minute, which was plenty of time for me to get the photograph I’d been dreaming of taking.
