Kathryn was officially bit by the travel bug at age eighteen when she participated in an exchange program in southern Spain. She fell in love with learning about the world and different cultures and continued traveling over the next few years, spending extensive time in over a dozen different countries.
After six months volunteering and learning Spanish in Peru, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands in 2012, Kathryn knew Latin America had her heart forever. From the wildlife and fauna to the exploration of ruins and ancient cultures, the diversity of the region ensured it became her passion to help other people discover it too.
With Audley, Kathryn has had the opportunity to return to Peru, Ecuador and the Galapagos. She spent time in the Amazon Rainforest, snorkeled in the Galapagos alongside hundreds of tropical fish and sea turtles, drove along the Avenue of Volcanoes and tasted the delicacies that each country proudly boasts. Most recently, Kathryn was able to discover Antarctica, passing through the wine region and bohemian villages of Chile before cruising through the South Shetland Islands. Surrounded by immense glaciers and more wildlife than people, she spent her days trekking alongside penguins, observing elephant seals lounging on icebergs, keeping her eyes peeled for humpback whales, and cruising through brash ice in silence as the scenery took everyone’s breath away.
Constantly re-inspired herself, Kathryn is now eager to spend her days inspiring others to discover the magic of Latin America.

My trip to the Galapagos was an amazing experience. I learned a lot I did not know about the country and the islands as well.
My trip to the Galapagos was an amazing experience. I learned a lot I did not know about the country and the islands as well. The trip went off mostly without flaws. Audley arranged for 2 day stay in Quito to experience some of the local culture which was great. I also had a desire to see the Blue Footed Boobie and I was able to get up close to these marvelous creatures and watch them with hatchlings.
