After twelve years of living and growing up in Lima, my family moved to the rainforest of Peru. From spending my whole life on the coast, the transition was strange, but I quickly discovered and fell in love with the culture, traditions, and food of the jungle. My memories of living in the Iquitos City, right near the Amazon River, are some of the happiest of my childhood. It taught me to be open-minded to new places, and that there’s so much more to the world just waiting to be explored.
After five years in Iquitos, I moved back to Lima to go to college. There, I started studying tourism as a gateway to explore more places. Studying tourism gave me incredible opportunities to travel to cities all over Peru and abroad. My love of Lima and desire to run my own tour company brought me home, and so I started hosting bike tours. After traveling around the world, never did I expect to end up back at home. Yet, I can honestly say I’ve found my true passion, showing travelers all around my city.
As a traveler, I love to meet new people, host them, give them advice, and show them the beauty of my city. I both love hosting my friends and family for dinners and get-togethers because spending quality time with our loved ones is really the ultimate reward. As Peruvians, these get-togethers always have plenty of food. Gastronomy is a huge part of our culture, and so you can always find us either eating, talking about food, or searching for something new to taste.
It’s more of a dream journey, I would love to ride my motorcycle from Ushuaia, which is the southernmost city in Patagonia, all the way up to Alaska to see Aurora Boreal. Living simply with just a tent and a few things, while seeing such an incredible and unique places, would be the ultimate adventure for me. But the real journey would be stopping along the way at small villages and meeting local people. As simple as it is, that’s the best part of traveling.
