I fell in love with travel whilst studying in Spain, experiencing the culture, language and food first hand just drew me in, and I quickly developed a desire to see new places. After university I spent 6 months in Asia and then a year in Latin America. I feel most at home when outdoors; whether it is wandering around a new city, relaxing on a beach or heading off on a full day hike.

I love swapping travel stories and experiences with other people and as a result my busket list seems to be never ending.

Across Latin America I have visited Cuba, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Uruguay, Brazil and Chile. So there are still some Latin American countries I can't wait to see, but even more that I want to return to! The diverse culture, landscapes and wonderful people I have met just keep drawing me back.

Travel nuggets

  • When heading to Chile don't forget a lipbalm and hand cream - definitely a necessity in the altitude and climate!

  • When exploring a new place I love leaving my map in my bag and going for a wander to see what I find.

  • If you love to dive make sure you visit the cenotes in Mexico, they are not to be missed!

  • When visiting new places be sure to ask the locals for food and drink recommendations so you don't miss out on any local specialties.

My hot picks

Antumalal, Pucon, Chile

Still run by the family who built it in the 1950s, Hotel Antumalal has a real family feel to it. It blends into the surroundings and holds incredible views across the Villarica lake. Definitely worth a visit when in the Lake District.

Casa Higueras, Valparaiso, Chile

There is such a cosy and homely feeling to Casa Higueras, it is a wonderful base to explore Valparaiso and the rooftop is not to be missed!

Tierra Atacama Hotel & Spa, San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

Such a beautifully designed building in an amazing location. This property boasts incredible views of the Licancabur Volcano, amazing food and wonderful staff. Definitely one of my favorite hotels!

Tierra Patagonia, Patagonia, Chile

It blends in so well to the surroundings you can't notice Tierra Patagonia until you are on the drive. The hotel is beautifully designed with amazing food and incredible experiences. A wonderful luxury base to return to after a day of hiking.
