Anna, Latin America Specialist
Anna graduated from Aberystwyth University with a degree in French, German and Spanish. A year spent living in Spain and another living in Martinique gave her the taste of travelling and further developed her passion for foreign languages, overseas cultures and ways of life. She then headed to Latin America and travelled extensively there. Her highlight was volunteering at an animal sanctuary in Bolivia, which involved living in the rainforest, walking an ocelot through the jungle, swimming with pumas and sharing her room with red howler monkeys. Other highlights for her were watching sea lions in the Galapagos, the Rio carnival and the Amazon rainforest. Since joining Audley she has returned to Colombia, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador and the Galapagos to experience many of the hotels, boats and guides we use.
I'll never forget when…
I'll never forget, while in the Galapagos Islands, the feeling of amazement as a penguin ate from a shoal of fish right near me.
Also, the giant turtle that gracefully swam past me absolutely made my day. I loved the playful sea lions, who swam up to me upside down and darted off at the last moment, then blew bubbles at me.
Quite incredible experiences, which will be with me forever.
