CENTRAL & SOUTH AMERICA
The joy and excitement of ticket in hand and having your adventure begin, is something I crave and am grateful to experience. Being born in Nicaragua and raised in the United States before moving to Canada sparked the travel bug from an early age. Although life has had other things in store for me, I have always loved exploring the world every opportunity. So after 15 years as a nurse, I decided now was the time to make a change and follow my passion which brought me to Goway. I have traveled to England, Scotland, Iceland, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and Ecuador (including the Galapagos Islands) and I cannot wait to continue exploring. Now I get to follow my passion, I look forward to helping you follow yours by planning your dream vacation or your next adventure!
My favourite places
I was fortunate enough to visit Iceland in the winter and summer. Both visits were amazing. Iceland's terrain is incredible and sometimes I felt like I was in another world. Blue Lagoon at dusk, lava fields, basalt columns on black sand beaches, waterfalls, glacier and ice caves call for plenty of outddor fun!
This was a bucket list trip! I knew on the first night when we had a shark, seal, fying fish and pelican visit while we were on the boat, that this trip was going to be surreal and it definitely delivered. We were fortunate enough to end the trip getting to see various baby animals including a baby hammerhead.
Pura Vida...Definitely not just a greeting but a way of life. The love of the country and preservation of nature is felt throughout Costa Rica. From howler monkeys as your wake up call to a river full of giant crocodiles that look like logs, Costa Rica is definitely worth a visit again and again.
Scotland has something for everyone! The incredible gems you find driving along country roads from one destination to the next are plentiful. The smell of smokey peat in the air in Islay and the breathtaking landscape in the isle of Sky transport you to what feels like another world.
