USA and Latin AmericaMy first solo journey to a different continent was a trip to visit relatives in Canada as a child. I’ve been interested in the Americas ever since.
Fascinated by Latin American culture in my twenties, I took time to explore villages, jungles, temples and volcanoes in Guatemala, Belize and Mexico. The thrill of snorkelling in Belize led me to take up scuba diving and I’ve never looked back.
I have made several visits to the east and west coasts of the United States, particularly New York and San Francisco. Recently, I co-wrote an extensive insider’s guide to responsible, ethical and green tourism in California for ResponsibleTravel.com. The guide covers the best outdoor activities, offbeat attractions and gastronomic experiences in this dynamic, family-friendly state.
In 2012, my interest in ecotourism and responsible tourism took me to Peru, to report on a new rainforest tourism project in the Amazon Basin for National Geographic Traveller.
I returned to the Amazon Basin in mid-2015 to report on an expedition cruise on Brazil’s Rio Negro, again for National Geographic Traveller.
