I love to travel and I am lucky enough to help others to experience unforgettable travel experiences in the Andes. I love living in London, it has so much to offer to anyone visiting the city either for leisure or business.

I am originally from Bolivia, but have been living in the UK for over 15 years now.
I am a MUSE fan, love Zumba, yoga and swimming. I like to discover the places I travel to, my ideal holiday is near the mountains, the sea or a lake with great landscapes and local food.
