I have travelled all over Latin America, for long periods of time. I started with short term trip, then they started becoming longer and longer, until I eventually decided that I did not want to go back to my old life and I wanted to make a living out of my passion.
I have tried it (almost) all: rafting in Argentina and Colombia, mountain biking in Colombia and Bolivia (including the infamous Death Road), zip lining, sand boarding, hiking, sailing, jumping off cliffs. I love the adrenaline rush I get when I am living a great adventure.
I thought I either win the lottery or I learn how to travel on a budget. You can guess I did not win the lottery. I always have to budget whatever I do, plan carefully so that the little money I have can take me a longer way. It has worked out so far, and in fact I enjoy it!
That is the best thing I could do. Before I started travelling solo I faced many fears: will I be able to sit alone during meals? I won't have anybody to talk to! It is quite the opposite, in fact. I have met many amazing people, and I have also enjoyed those precious moments by myself.
I have worked as a tour leader, so I know how organised tours work, and how much work there is behind a tour that runs smoothly. It is a really tough job.
From Antigua to Lake Atitlan, from Semuc Champey to Tikal and Yaxa, Guatemala is a beautiful countries where travellers can live all sorts of experiences and adventures. I have been there 3 times, I am in love with the people and the culture and I will be glad to share tips about it!
Argentina is an incredible country. Landscapes vary dramatically: Andes, tropical regions, glaciars, desert, gorgeous cities – Argentina has it all. The country is easy to travel through, but so huge that one really has to know where to go!
I have travelled widely to Peru, to both the most famous places as well as to some off the beaten path ones. I am completely in love with the country and with its people. I have a friend who runs a really good local agency that can help me provide advice as well as services to anybody who wants to visit it.
I have been to Nicaragua 3 times and I never tire of it. To me, it is the most incredible country in Central America. The land of lakes and volcanoes has so much to explore. I have some great contacts with local agencies and guides too.
Ah, Cuba! I have to love it. It took me a while to actually realise that, as the first time I visited I really thought I would never go back. In the end, it inspired me to start my blog, and ultimately to change my life for the best.
