When you become an expat in your birth country, you learn different tricks - you are not just a traveler but a local as well. This has given me a great appreciation for different cultures and has fed my love for traveling.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I specialize in Lima, Cusco and weekend getaways from Lima. Living in Peru for 7 years has given me the chance to know where are the best places to get out of the big city and all the spots in Lima and Cusco that are popular with both locals and foreigners. In the last years I've learned first-hand all Lima and Cusco have to offer, all of which I hope to share with our travelers. "
How did you get involved in travel?
"7 years ago I joined a study abroad culinary program in Peru. Here, my curiosity began to burst. Not only did I want to travel everywhere In Peru but I wanted to learn about different cultures and different food and techniques the world has to offer. Now no matter where I travel, making a stop at a local market is at the top of my list! "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"In 2012 I went to Iquitos with a couple of German friends, we camped out in an indigenous community in the middle of the Amazon, it was not at all glamorous, but one of the most memorable trips. I got to learn so much about how the community lived, their culture, their food, and their reality. It was both eye-opening and life-changing. "
