Perhaps the most striking thing about Claire is her love of language: besides speaking Spanish, Portuguese, French, Arabic and German, she also loves to exercise her creativity and natural expressiveness in her English mother tongue, which she can seemingly bend to her every will. It is no surprise then that Claire is our resident wordsmith, responsible for continually finding new ways to evoke the beauty of our destinations both in print and on our website. Her lifelong love of Latin America and unrivalled ground knowledge, gained from spending a total of 12 years living, travelling and tour leading across the region, is no small help in this task.
Claire has travelled widely, but if pushed to choose her favourite countries she would pick Brazil, where the music and laid-back, gregarious culture held her in thrall throughout the three years she spent there, and Colombia for its unspoilt scenery and low-key tourist industry. She also loves Argentina, especially the wilderness landscapes of the south and the Puna in the Atacama Desert; and Nicaragua, one of the most endearing of the off-the-beaten-track, less visited destinations. Top of the list however is not strictly in Latin America - it's remote South Georgia in the South Atlantic, for its history of exploration and teeming wildlife.
