Josh found his love for Latin America when he first studied abroad in Panama City. From this experience he went on to earn his degree in International Affairs. Learning about people, culture, and governments had captured his heart and mind.
Through this experience he realized that traveling was more than a vacation, but rather a better way to see and experience the world first-hand, instead of reading a text book. His friends coined him the nickname, “The Spontaneous Traveler”; traveling anywhere from Ireland to Israel and Dubai to Spain, even if it was last minute just to experience a new culture while staying off-the-beaten path.
After extensive worldwide travels, Latin America kept calling him back and now that Josh is at Audley he has the unique opportunity to share his passion for the continent with others.
I'll never forget when…
Lima, Peru — or otherwise known as my food Mecca — was one of most amazing gastronomic experiences of my life. I am huge lover of food and the opportunity that presented itself here was incredible. An interesting fact: the 3rd, 8th and 35th best restaurants in the world are all located in Lima. Here, I was able to get into one of the best ceviche restaurants by Javier Wong and his restaurant Chez Wong. If that wasn't enough, later that night I was able to somehow find myself at the 35th best restaurant in the world, Astrid y Gaston. Chez Wong is such an unique experience, walking past it you may even miss it. Once inside, there are no menus, no thrills, just amazing food done the right way. The waiter asks if you would like ceviche (of course) and how many hot dishes you would like. You sit there surrounded by Chef Wong's many accolades and numerous celebrity photos, which set the expectations very high. Trust me, there is nothing like seeing the 70 something master chef cooking for you. Knowing how much of a passion he has for food comes through in all his dishes, which he exemplifies in letting each individual ingredient shine. Truly an once-in-a-lifetime experience.
