It was an unforgettable trip to the Far East at the age of seven that fired my ambitions to see the world, but a love of travel and exploring different cultures might just be in my DNA, being part Swedish and part Peruvian.

Naturally Latin America has always been a place of great curiosity for me, with so much history and a deep-rooted culture; the warm people, the exhilarating landscapes and the progressive cuisine has kept me coming back again and again.

Past adventures have allowed me to brave the Pacific waters and swim with white-tip reef sharks in the Galapagos; sleep under canvas in a remote Mayan village in the Guatemalan jungle; take the unforgettable trek along the Inca Trail to the ruins of Machu Picchu Citadel; and there are still so many more areas for me to experience and explore.

Ask me about swimming in cenotes, Mayan archaeological sites, authentic colonial towns and Mexican food.
