I have been lucky enough to travel to some incredible destinations from a very young age, with one of the first holidays I remember being an epic Safari in Kenya. I have since been to many beautiful countries, from the beaches of Cambodia to the vast lakes in Canada and even living in the Austrian Alps for five months.

In 2019, I embarked on a trip of a lifetime across Latin America as a contestant on BBC’s Race Across the World. I raced through 11 countries starting in Mexico City and finishing in Ushuaia, Argentina, all with no phone, no flying and a very limited budget. I fell in love with the beauty of Latin America and I was met with such kindness and generosity.

My time in Latin America is something that will stay with me forever. The diversity in landscapes, culture, food and history means there is always something new to discover. I can’t wait to share my love for the region with you and plan your trip of a lifetime!

Latin America

My most memorable trip

Latin America

I was lucky to travel through 11 countries across Latin America all in one trip. It was my first time visiting the region and I was stunned by the diversity of nature, history and culture. I travelled to what I believe are some of the most beautiful places in the world, where you can see everything - from bustling, vibrant cities to the most dramatic landscapes. What made it special is sharing it with my older brother, it truly was a trip we would never forget.

Discover Latin America

On my bucket list

The Galápagos

Latin America is vast and I still have so much to discover. The Galápagos has to be at the top of my list, I can only imagine how incredible it is to explore the remote islands whilst seeing incredible wildlife up close.

My favourite trip

Total Patagonia Vacation

One of my favourite trips has to be the Total Patagonia Vacation. Argentina is a big and beautiful country, there is so much to discover and this tour covers (nearly) all the highlights. From the vibrant city of Buenos Aires to the breathtaking landscapes of Patagonia to the 'end of the world' in Ushuaia, you are guaranteed a trip of a lifetime!

My top tips

If you're visiting Medellin, definitely stop by Guatape - filled with vibrant, colourful streets and make sure to climb to the top of El Peñol!

There can be a big jump in temperature from region to region in Argentina, be certain to pack accordingly if you are heading South.

Chatting to locals is the best way to learn about a country and their cultures. I guarantee everyone you meet on the journey has a story to tell.

Lake Titicaca is amazing, staying with The Uros people on their floating islands is not one to miss!
