The Most Popular South American Books Ever

Making literary lists is seen by many as an obscenity. Lists are often too subjective; books can be so personal and opinions vary extensively. However, today (March 5th, 2015) is World Book Day, and to celebrate this day I would like to go against everything I believe in and offer a list of South American books… There […]

It was an early start from the superb Casa Andina Valle Sagrado  (Sacred Valley) hotel in Urubamba, Peru. I say early, not because 7 AM was so unbearable, but because the previous evenings revelry and a few too many Pisco Sours brought sunrise and bedtime in too close proximity.

Located high in the Andes between Cuzco and Machu Picchu the Sacred Valley felt like one of those places where time just stops and you blend into the surroundings.

The overlap of food and culture fascinates me and in my travels I always take time out to try, what may be ordinary for the place I am visiting, things that are unusual for me. Maybe even a bit out of my comfort zone. I have tried; pig’s blood tofu in Cambodia, chewy silk worms […]

It may not be as not as well-known as other other Peruvian cities like Lima and Cuzco, but as near as I can tell, Arequipa’s almost 1,000,000 inhabitants seem to be perfectly happy keeping the city’s substantial charms to themselves. Nicknamed the “white city”, Peru’s second largest city takes its international obscurity in stride by […]

Marketing Globetrotters Tour in Lima, Peru

It was one of those strange twists of fate, and being open to opportunity, that finds me halfway across the world in the lobby of the Sonesta Hotel in Lima, Peru as part of a program called Marketing Globetrotters. Marketing Globetrotters is the brainchild of Yngrid Arnold, CMO of Viventura Travel, a socially responsible tour […]

El Superclásico – The Biggest Rivalry in Argentine Football

As I watched 11 red and white shirts wage war against 11 blue and yellow shirts in unplayable conditions in front of 74,000 screaming fans late into Sunday night I knew, I had to write my first article about football.
