After completing a degree in Adventure Education, Hannah worked for World Challenge, providing operational support to expedition teams across the globe. However wanderlust got the better of her, and she realised she could no longer live vicariously through others. Backpack in tow, she ventured to South America to explore this vibrant and exciting continent - it’s fair to say that it exceeded all her expectations and more. Among others, her top moments include cycling through wine valleys in Argentina (with tastings of course), hiking in Patagonia, and celebrating Christmas in Colombia.
Two months after returning home, and in pursuit of a new adventure, she stumbled across a vacancy at Last Frontiers and felt there was no better way to channel her enthusiasm for the continent!
Most memorable moment
Watching avalanches crash from the snow-capped mountains at the top of Valle de Francés (Torres del Paine National Park, Chile), as I sat to eat some lunch after a tough climb to get there.
Make sure you have enough space in your luggage for souvenirs!
Pack a water filter bottle (such as Lifestraw Go) to reduce the amount of plastic bottles used (particularly useful for hiking, when safe drinking water isn't always readily available)
Next 'must see'
It’s difficult to narrow down such a long list, but Antarctica, Mexico, and the lake districts of both Chile and Argentina are definitely near the top.
