Evie Oswald Travel Consultant

It’s hard to believe that Evie has had time to cram so much in to her life so far. Having lived as a child in the Americas and Europe she found herself immediately attracted to Latin America.

Torres del Paine

In her gap year, Evie hoisted her backpack onto her shoulders and set off to explore Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Bolivia, Peru, Panama and Colombia. Not for her a superficial visit however: she lingered in Buenos Aires to teach English for over a year and became fluent in Spanish, Portuguese and French.

She returned to the UK and was awarded a first class degree from SOAS in London, and has visited Latin America many times since, especially Colombia, one of her favourite countries. Evie is particularly drawn to the continent’s Afro-Latino culture and heritage but also especially loves the mountain scenery of the Andes, vineyards and coffee plantations.

Evie is an enthusiast for Latin American music and dance, and is also an animal lover. Unable to resist the appeal of a puppy in Colombia she acquired a loyal companion who travelled with her to Panama, Argentina and the USA, and now lives at her family home in England.

Evie could not have been more flexible, or helpful throughout.  It is always fantastic when a travel consultant acts on what they have heard rather than what most people want, and is able to make helpful suggestions too.

What Is Your Favourite...

Place...

Torres del Paine, Patagonia – The scenery here is some of the best I have ever seen and the hiking opportunities are fantastic, particularly if the weather is on your side! I stayed at Patagonia Camp in luxury yurts and it was wonderful being so close to nature in such breath-taking surroundings.

Hotel

Pacuare Lodge, Costa Rica –Pacuare Lodge is my favourite luxury eco-lodge with excellent staff, top-quality food and cocktails as well as unforgettable wildlife and adventure activities. The 2 hour rafting in was a very memorable experience and the Linda Vista Villa was beautifully designed with a private plunge pool, wrap around terrace, indoor and outdoor showers and a four poster canopy bed – it is well worth the upgrade!

Excursion

Big Ice, Perito Moreno glacier in Patagonia – I was a bit nervous about this excursion with the howling winds the night before, but I’m so glad I did it! There is something about ice trekking on one of the largest and most renowned glaciers in the world which is very rewarding!

Top Travel Tip

Make the most of your excursions – don’t be afraid to ask questions and get to know your guides, their knowledge is second to none and they can really enhance your overall experience!

Sacred Valley

Top Packing Tip

Make sure you have waterproofs, comfortable walking shoes and a good-sized day pack for when you are out and about – I learnt the hard way! Even if you don’t plan on hiking, city tours and other excursions can often mean you are often on your feet and having what you need can make a big difference.
