Hey, Hattie. Which was the first country you visited in Latin America? What were your impressions?
Argentina, and particularly Buenos Aires knocked my socks off. The grand but slightly faded architecture, the incredibly glamorous porteños (Buenos Aires locals), the widest avenues I’ve ever seen, the abundant culture, the late nights… It was intoxicating.
Tell us about a recent adventure of yours. What did a typical day look like?
It was the first trip I took since the pandemic and I visited Rio Palena Lodge in deepest Chilean Patagonia. This was just the tonic after months of being shut up at home. We kayaked, went alpine heli trekking, white water rafting down Futa River (spotting the world #1 kayaker Benny Marr on route) and fly fishing. Even managed to fit in some dancing, singing and lots of hot tub time. This place felt like home and the team there like friends once we left.
