Abigail, Latin America Specialist
My love of travel started at an early age, and developed hand in hand with my passion for languages and culture. I was always drawn to Latin America, with its imposing scenery and rich history. I would imagine myself climbing mountains and crossing diverse landscapes to discover lost Inca cities and Maya ruins.
After graduating with a BA in Modern Languages and having lived and volunteered in France, Italy and South Africa, I took off on my biggest adventure, backpacking through Central and South America. I rode with gauchos, learned to salsa and trekked to waterfalls and ruins, tasting delicious food along the way.
On returning home I started working in travel, and since joining Audley I have returned to Argentina and Chile to revisit some of the places I loved most and experience many new ones, including magical Patagonia.
I can’t wait to share my knowledge of these two incredible countries with you.
I'll never forget when…
Surrounded by crisp whites and clear blues, I climbed the Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentine Patagonia with a guide. On the way, we paused to see deep crevasses and to hear the creaking and cracking of the glacier — the only one left in the world that is still advancing rather than retreating. I felt completely in awe and yet entirely at peace witnessing the views from the top. When the hike was over, we went to see an ice cave that sparkled and glittered like crystal and cast shadows of deep blue. I felt like I was in another world.
