Emily Opie

Travel Designer

I have travelled and worked all over the world, but my last stint was out in Latin America. Touring from Colombia all the way down to Ushuaia and back up to Rio has given me an amazing overview of many of the fascinating countries in South America.

Understanding cultures and local customs is a favourite pastime for me when I’m travelling, and sipping on mate and galloping about with the gauchos are top of my list of great local experiences in Argentina.

Beaches are always going to be my first love. Ask me about my favourite beach experiences in Latin America, which include complete isolation up in Tayrona National Park, sipping on caipirinhas in bustling bars in Paraty, or enjoying a pisco sour on the palm-fringed Peruvian coast.

I have been very lucky to travel to some remote and beautiful landscapes worldwide, but nothing took my breath away quite like Patagonia, with the Perito Moreno Glacier and trekking in the Los Glaciers National park being highlights.

Another incredible highlight of my time in Latin America will always be partying with the locals for a week during Carnival in Rio de Janeiro.

Ask me about discovering Peru by train, Machu Picchu and exploring Argentina from glaciers to falls.
