What was your last adventure?
An unforgettable few days in the Ecuadorian Amazon with the Sapara people. The experience included traditional healing rituals, jungle treks, long swims down the Rio Conambo, meditation, dream interpretation, lessons in botany and shamanic ceremonies. Before that, I was riding and trekking in the Andean highlands to the north of Quito.
Favourite restaurant in South America?
Good food and drink is a key component of our journeys. Don Julio in Buenos Aires was my second home when living there. I saw it transform from a word-of-mouth neighbourhood dive to one of the most highly regarded restaurants in Latin America. Lo de Pepina, in Cartagena’s Getsemani, is a family-run bolthole of 8 tables and stunning Caribbean food. Lucifer, in Garzón, Uruguay, run by Mallmann protégé Lucia Soria, is a gem. Long lunches at Rio’s Lorenzo Bistrô and buzzy Braseiro da Gávea. Lima and Bogota deserve their own chapters.
