How did you get involved in travel?

"After my first trip overseas to study abroad in Italy, I haven't stopped traveling and exploring this beautiful world of ours. It inspires me to see new places and experience new cultures, and travel has become one of my biggest passions. After working abroad in both Turkey and Spain for a few years, I realized what I loved most was encouraging people to visit amazing new places. I arrived in South America as a traveler, but immediately fell in love with the warmth and beauty of this place and its people, and have worked here in tourism ever since- mostly in Colombia and now in Peru."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"The first time I ventured outside of the big city of Medellín when I was in Colombia, I visited the village of Jardín. Four hours on a winding bus ride and my face my glued to the window the entire time- incredible mountains and greenery, coffee and plantain farms- the views were like nothing I'd seen. Finally arriving in the colorful village, I knew immediately that I'd be staying in Colombia for a while. It was like being transported to another time. We took a tuk-tuk to visit a local coffee farm and the family there treated us like old friends. Over a year later, I went back to Jardín and was able to find the visit the same farm- they greeted me with open arms and the same kindness as ever. Colombia is beautiful in so many ways, and the warmth of its people is definitely one of them. "
