Bridget Gleeson

I'm a travel writer based in Buenos Aires. I've been all over Argentina (and South America) on assignments for a variety of web and print publications.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Latin America. In South America, I specialize in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and Brazil, but also Peru and Ecuador. In Central America, I specialize in Nicaragua. I also love Mexico and have traveled there many times.

I'm also well-traveled in Europe. I lived in both Rome and Prague, so I know those cities well, and I've traveled extensively in Italy, Spain, and Germany.

Also: Morocco, California, Portugal, Cuba."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I was born into it: my parents are world travelers."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Swimming with penguins, sharks, seahorses, and giant sea turtles in the Galapagos has to go down as one of the most memorable experiences of my life."
